what we do
Monthly PTO Meetings
We hold monthly PTO meetings during the school year. In addition to parents, every meeting is attended by one or more BHS administrators and students. Typically, Principal Rolph provides his State of the School Update, a representative from the student council keeps us informed of their activities, we get the district-level news from members of the school board, and then we plan ways for parents to help. See archive.
We recognize that our teachers and administrators are at the heart of what makes Brandywine High School great. We appreciate their dedication and commitment to excellence. As a small token of our appreciation, we generally host three teacher appreciation luncheons during the year, one prior to the first week of classes, the second during midterms, and the last as the school year ends. See calendar.
Facilitate Class Parents
Each of the four class years in our high school has a class parent group, which plays a vital role in facilitating and fundraising for extracurricular activities like the after prom party. Class Parent Group contacts, forms & policies
Run the Bulldog Dash
Sorry, our race has been postponed indefinitely. Each year in the fall, your PTO works with students, teachers and school administrators to host a 5K run/walk, the Bulldog Dash. The race starts and finishes in BHS stadium and follows a path through the neighborhoods of Chatham and Graylyn Crest. The race is open to the public. We particularly reach out to the broader school community, alumni and neighborhood residents. Athletes compete as individuals and as teams. Classes compete to raise funds for their After proms and charity.
