Come have a donut and celebrate with your Briarlake Beaver friends! Parents, you’ll have the opportunity to update your email address with the PTA. That’s all you need to do to receive the weekly Beaver Blast email. It’s your source for important notifications and information about upcoming events throughout the school year. We will also be sharing some exciting information about fun clubs and extracurricular activities available to students this year! Hope to see you there!

Don't forget your student agenda!

7/20/2021 3:22 am

Don't forget to purchase student agendas and pay class dues online or at Open House on July 28th! Student agendas are used for daily communication between teachers and parents and are available to purchase for $5/each. 

BUT WAIT! 

Parent/Guardian PTA membership is only $10 and includes a student agenda for your child!*

Class dues help PTA provide necessary classroom supplies, academic support for each teacher, and a nominal amount for class parties. These optional dues are $15/student for 2021-2022.

*Parent/Guardian PTA memberships include one student agenda each, but not to exceed the total number of Briarlake students in the household. If the number of Parent/Guardian memberships purchased in a household exceeds the number of Briarlake students in that household, additional agendas will be donated to the school to be used at their discretion.
