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.

05/26/2020

A bittersweet day today as our teachers went back to classrooms frozen in time since March 11. On a happy note however, the PTSO was able to provide customized gourmet boxed lunches from Apple Spice Catering as well as deliver the BW face masks. While non-LCPS employees like me weren't allowed inside the school to serve, I had my spies on the inside send me pics :)

Thanks again to our hardworking teachers and staff!

Happy Staff Appreciation Day #5.

What better way to show how much we love and appreciate our teachers and staff than with a video compilation of all the wonderful pics and videos I've received over the last two weeks set to a song titled "You Have Made a Difference" written specifically for educators. I've had it sent to staff this morning, but I've linked it below for all to enjoy.

And, as an added surprise, the PTSO has purchased the staff the swaggiest of Pandemic swag there is. Briar Woods Face Masks! Hey if ya have to wear them, at least have fun with it, right?!

If you have a moment today and haven't already done so, take some time to send a quick email to your kids teachers thanking them. Your encouragement is probably better than a lunch or a face mask 😉

Thanks so much to all of you who contributed to this video helping me to salvage Staff Appreciation Week-Pandemic Style.
