The William Brooks PTA supports our our community and students throughout the year by hosting a variety of social events.
We build a community by hosting events like the Talent Show, Ice Cream Social, Harvest Carnival, Family Dance, Donuts with Grownups, Staff Appreciation Week, and Holiday Secret Store. These community events give our kids a chance to have fun and make some awesome lasting memories! We raise money by holding fundraisers like the Jog-a-thon, Book Fairs, Community Dine-Outs, and the Annual Fundraiser (Gala, Bingo Night, etc.). Money raised goes toward classroom enrichment, class field trips, assemblies, the Art program, the Garden program, and much more! We work with the Brooks staff to make sure our kids have the resources and materials they need!
Talent and Art Show
The PTA is excited to host the annual Talent and Art Show each Spring, with a performance during school hours for the students and in the evening for families and friends. Students can show off their talents on stage or by having their artwork displayed. Look for information about this event after winter break!
This event requires the help of a many of volunteers to plan and run auditions and the show. Please CLICK HERE to learn more about the volunteer roles and let us know if you would like to help out!
Donuts with Grownups
Donuts with Grownups is a fun event held in Spring before school at which the PTA provides breakfast for our students and 1 or 2 of their favorite grownups. Stay tuned for more details!
This is one of our easiest events to plan and can be lead by a small group of volunteers. Please CLICK HERE to learn more about the volunteer roles and let us know if you would like to help out!
Gala- Spring Fundraiser
The Gala/ Spring Fundraiser is a kid-free evening of drinks, dinner, silent and live auctions, raffle prizes and dancing – all to benefit our school! This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and parents always have a great time! In addition to raising money for our programs that require annual backing (technology, student assemblies, garden and art programs), prior galas have raised money for the shade-structure over the playground, new Chromebooks, and the new marquee!
The Spring Fundraiser is one of the largest PTA events and it requires the help of a LOT of volunteers to be a success. Chairs of the event get to choose the style of the event (a Gala, Bingo night, Casino night, etc.) Planning typically starts 4-6 months before the event. There is a variety of volunteer roles to suit all types of people and that require varying amounts of time.
