Friends of Balwin
The Friends of Balwin is a dedicated group of parents who strive to support student learning and success at our school. Through the efforts of the Friends of Balwin students receive such benefits as sponsored field trips, updated technology, sports equipment and our annual school wide Christmas Lunch.
There are many opportunities to get involved in our school such as volunteering at special school events, supervising at school dances, or helping out on a school field trip.
We welcome parent volunteers at Balwin School!
