PTA Meetings

Anyone may attend PTA meetings, which are on the second Tuesday of every month in the Brookside Library at 7:00 pm.

A message from PTA President, Jen Cheslik:

The purpose of PTA is to provide a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and to advocate for the education and well-being of every child. We strive for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. 

The Brookside PTA supports educational programs in the school and provides teachers with funds to purchase classroom supplies as well as provide support for various field trips throughout the year. PTA fundraisers have helped to purchase things such as risers for the music room, Smart Boards, computers and new playground equipment. Fundraising activities include Fall and Spring Book Fairs, Jog-A-Thon, Silent Auction and the Box Tops for Education program.

 We need your help. If every family could volunteer to help at just ONE event, all of our events will be more successful. These are the events that your kids love coming to and get excited about throughout the year.

 We look forward to meeting you and hope you will consider joining the Brookside PTA, or volunteering at one of our many events throughout the year. Just a little time is all it takes to make a big impact on our students, school and community!
