Get Involved

The William Brooks PTA needs you! There are many ways you can help our students by supporting and participating in the PTA.  We would love to get as many parents involved in the PTA as possible.  Even if you only have a few minutes a week to give from home, we would love your support. 

Some of the ways you can get involved include:

Becoming a PTA Member

Joining the Birthday Club

Wear Brooks Spirit Wear

Attending PTA Meetings

Volunteering your Time

Using our Give Back Programs

Attending PTA Dine-Outs


Become a Member

Please become a PTA member each year! Join the PTA so you can stay informed through PTA emails and voice your opinions at our monthly meetings. We encourage all parents and caregivers to join so they all have a vote!


Join the William Brooks Birthday Club!

The Birthday Club provides options to celebrate your child’s special day at school.  Celebrate his or her birthday or half-birthday by having a personalized 'happy birthday' message displayed on the school marquee and/or choosing a new book from Brook's librarian Mrs. Spero's book box to donate to (and then be the first to check out from) the school library.

If you are interested in joining, please complete this form and return it to the school office.


Wear Brooks Spirit Wear

Every Friday is a Brooks Spirit day, where students and teachers are encouraged to wear school colors of blue and red. The PTA sells a wide variety of shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, hats, socks, and water bottles for both students and adults. Items are on sale at select PTA-events (including the Kindergarten Playdate at the Park, Ice Cream Social, and Harvest Carnival), On Campus Pop-Ups Sales (dates TBD), and Online Sales (dates TDB). Spirit wear can also be purchased by emailing Beth Lara at


Attend PTA Meetings

Although you are not required to attend the PTA meetings, attending meetings will help you be in the know! Meetings this year will be held on Tuesdays at William Brooks  in room 20 (in the front for the school near the garden) or the Brooks library, with times alternating between morning and after school.

Become a Volunteer
