Parents

The Birch Wathen Lenox School is fortunate to have the involvement of dedicated and committed parents that enhance the relationship between home and school. Upon enrollment, all parents are granted membership into the Parents' Association. With membership comes the opportunity to serve in leadership positions: as committee chairs, class representatives or event volunteers.

The BWL Parents' Association is an enthusiastic force that supports the mission of the school and cooperative efforts and goals of the administration, faculty and student body. The Parents' Association plans, develops and organizes fundraising events throughout the year. These events range from holiday fundraisers, to spring and book fairs, to bake sales and other activities that bring the community together and benefit the School. Individual committees focus on the community at large and developmental concerns of parents on a grade level basis to ensure the emotional, physical, and social well-being of our students. These committees range from Parents in Action to the Diversity Committee to the Joint Schools Committee. All families of the BWL community are also responsible for participating in the School's Safety Patrol program.

We promote the involvement of all parents in school activities and appreciate their ongoing participation. BWL encourages parents to refer to the website for updated information on school events.
