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

Attending PTA Meetings

Volunteering your Time

Using our Give Back Programs

Attending PTA Dine-Outs

Donating

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.

 

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 at William Brooks  in room 20 (in the front for the school near the garden) or via Zoom, with times alternating between morning and evening.

Attend a dine-out so you can enjoy a night without cooking while supporting our school! Check out the Calendar section on the website and in your Friday Folders for information about upcoming Dine-Outs!
