Calling All Volunteers!

The PTO needs you.


Did you know that, through your support, the Burr PTO is able to put on 35 events and programs at Burr every year? In order for all of those to happen, we need volunteers to run them. Here is the list of what we do at Burr. The highlighted positions are where we most need volunteers in order to keep bringing the whole Burr Community all of our great events. Please consider volunteering!
