What the PTO needs most are helping hands: Volunteer at the book fair, coach Girls on the Run, chaperone Spanish Club or take tickets at the carnival bouncy house. These efforts enrich your child's educational experience and that of all other Borlaug students. The time commitment for each volunteer opportunity is short and in the past moms and dads have coordinated times so they could take care of each other's little kids while the other could volunteer. It's the community we have that makes Borlaug work. Thank you for giving your time! Emails go out frequently with sign-ups or you could fill out a volunteer form HERE.
Learn. Dream. Live. Run.
Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization that envisions a world where every Borlaug girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
We need a Volunteer to run or Co-run Girls on the Run for this Fall. Without a parent volunteer this amazing program will be discontinued at Borlaug Elementary. More information about Girls on the Run can be found HERE.
If you are interested in contributing your time for Borlaug's girls, email us HERE.

The Borlaug PTO sponsors an annual fall fundraising campaign that starts each October and ends in November. The goal is to raise $10,000 during that six week period. With over 300 families enrolled at Borlaug, this comes out to just $35 per family. This direct ask campaign is the easiest and most cost-effective way for you to give money to our school. All of the money goes directly toward the PTO's operating budget to fund Borlaug clubs, School of the Wild, field trips, Bulldog Books, classroom supplies, teacher gifts, events and programs. You can decide on the level at which you donate based on your family’s financial circumstances. All donations are tax-deductible. Look out for our fundraising letter in October or simply donate online at the link below and choose the Borlaug Elementary PTO. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
We are collecting Box Tops this school year to benefit our Parent Teacher Organization, which in turn, benefits all Borlaug students! As you may know, Box Tops can be found on many products sold in grocery and retail stores. If you find one on something you have bought, cut it out and bring it to school! Or, save your Box Tops in a special place at home and bring them to school once you have collected a bunch of Box Tops. Each team will have a special collection bin where students will drop off their Box Tops. Teachers will make sure students know where to put their Box Tops. Our Before and After School Program students will help to count our Box Tops into groups of 50 in order to get them ready for redemption. Twice per year, we will mail in the Box Tops to earn money. For more information about Box Tops (where they are found, how much they are worth, other ways to participate, etc.).

Do you have gently used clothing that you or your kids can no longer wear? Consider donating to Schoola and Borlaug will receive 40% of the proceeds from the sale of your clothing.
