Every year the PTSO offers scholarships to students who have contributed in the classroom, in the school and in the community. And every year, we get many qualified applicants making the choices so very difficult. This year was no different, so my hats off to those students who took the time to submit an application. We appreciate you, we see you, and we wish you all the best.

Having said that, I am so very excited to announce the Class of 2020 PTSO Scholarship Recipients:

Caden Greene - $2,000
Bronte Caulfield - $1,000
Ian Rupp - $1,000

In a "normal" school year, these would have been announced during a school awards ceremony; however, I have notified each of them by email, and their achievement will be included in the Senior Scholarship, Awards and Recognition slide scheduled to post on June 4th.

We are so proud of and excited for these wonderful students for their contributions to Briar Woods over the last four years!

I never thought in a million years, I would ask this question or do a fundraiser involving this but.... if we sold these masks as a fundraiser, would you all be interested? There is a choice of a one-ply and a three-ply. The PTSO bought the one-ply for teachers, and they are very comfy. But some people may want thicker ones. Price would be between $8-$12.

If you read this and are interested, hit the "like" button or comment. I would have to have a 50 piece minimum for each type so I'm trying to gauge interest.
