Brownsville Elementary PTSA

What a fun start to the new school year and 2020. Movie Mondays have seemed to be a hit, and we've had great attendance for our PTSA meetings on those days. I am happy that we were able to adjust our monthly meetings so it can accommodate more families schedules. 

We have a very busy year ahead of us. We just held our very first Silent Disco in January, and if you missed it, you missed out on an evening of so much fun. It was neat to see all the children and parents jamming out together, while allowing infant siblings and others who are sensitive to noise to be able to attend. We will be having another one in the next few months so stay tuned.

February 11th is our next PTSA meeting 6pm in our school library. We have a lot of Spring events happening, and you can be the first to hear all about it at our meeting. 

We are still in need of some volunteers to chair events. I can help you through the whole process of learning your role and how to lead or assist in the position. When I first came to Brownsville I just started helping with Staff Appreciation, which was donating food to bring. Then I helped with the Rummage Sale and loved that, so the next year I co chaired it and from there I just started learning about all the different ways I could be involved in my kids school and I have loved every minute of it. 

Here is a list of the vacancies we have: 

  • Rummage Sale Co Chair
  • Book Fair Chair and Co Chair
  • Golden Acorn Co Chair
  • Harvest Hay Day Chair and Co Chair
  • Volunteer Coordinator Co Chair
  • Art Docent Co Chair
  • Reflections Chair and Co Chair
  • Nominating committee Chair and a few other people to help out with this committee. 
  • Jog a Thon Co Chair

If you are still reading this, thank you for taking the time to learn about what is happening with your childs PTSA. We are all inclusive and have a place for everyone and love new ideas and new faces. Hope to see you at the next meeting and or event!
