Burchfield PTO
Welcome to Burchfield Primary!
The Burchfield Primary PTO would like to welcome you to our school! For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The Burchfield PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents. 

The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for their educational and recreational needs, to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents and to encourage school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school.
