Parent Teacher Organization

The purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to promote relationships between and among families and the school to foster a vibrant community in support of the school’s mission and values.

You are a Member!

Membership in the PTO is automatic for faculty, staff, and families. The PTO is overseen by the Manager of Development Chris Gilliland and a co-chair from each division, Montessori and Prep. In addition, each class or grade within the school has one or more volunteer class/grade representatives.

You Can Help!

Barrie requests six volunteer hours per year, per family. Families may volunteer all at once or a few times per trimester, and hours can be fulfilled in many ways, including off-campus.

Participate as a Class/Grade Rep - Support the teachers and students directly by organizing classroom events and communicating with families. Specific grades are also in charge of different school-wide events.

Participate as a New Family Mentor – Welcome new families to Barrie. Volunteers are needed during the summer to reach out to families. Contact the Theresa Valois in the Admission Office to help.

Participate by leading a PTO Program or Event – Review the school calendar and contact Chris about helping provide leadership.

Participate by starting a new group – Guest lecturers, pick-up basketball games, book clubs, running groups, scrap booking groups, etc. Barrie will supply the facilities and logistical support to get the word out.
