Burlingame High School Parents' Group

  • President’s Message

    Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

    Here we are. Together again. We begin the year with deep gratitude for the resilience and generosity of our community.  While we reflect on the shared experience that we’ve weathered together, we recognize that every family brings a uniquely valuable perspective.  We are prepared to meet you where you are with a renewed commitment to a supportive, connected community.  

    Adjusting to a new normal will bring its own set of challenges and opportunities.  As the President of the BHS Parents Group, I pledge to engage our community with the values of inclusion, transparency, empathy and collaboration.  

    I encourage you to engage in your student’s life at Burlingame High School:

    • Join us for Parents Group meetings and activities.  You are a member by virtue of the fact that you are in this community!  No sign-up forms or membership fees.
    • Consider investing in our community through the Excellence Fund.  We welcome and appreciate every donation, at every level.  
    • Lastly, stay informed through our regular newsletters. We welcome your input and feedback.  We are here to help!

    The Parent Group stands ready to support you, your student and your family.  After all, we are in this together.  And together, we are stronger.
