Strong community support is displayed by the PTO organization. This active group provides funding for school assemblies and other programs throughout the year.

The school building is used after school hours for community meetings by Girl Scouts, Brownies, recreation leagues, and community soccer and baseball.
With two new playgounds provided through the PTO within the last four years, we encourage our families and community members to use the school facilities as a viable part of the Brecknock community.
