Briarwood’s PTA (Parent Teacher Association) works to support every student and teacher. The PTA provides many extra activities, programs and financial assistance not covered by the Shawnee Mission School District.

Joining the PTA is easy. The cost is $12 for an individual or $24/joint. Our goal is to have 100% participation from our families and teachers. With the cost of your membership you will receive a Briarwood student directory and access to the online directory.

Note: Access to the online directory will be granted in late September.

To join PTA and pay online now, please enter your school directory information here and then you will be taken to our online shopping cart:

Please note: Even if you submit your PTA membership form to the office, we need ALL families to enter their school directory information through the School Directory link.

Once you join the PTA, you can choose if or how you wish to get involved. Due to Covid-19 and its impact, there are no volunteer opportunities at this time, but check back as the situation evolves!
