WELCOME

Welcome to our PTA website! We are working hard to update it and help you stay connected with our PTA and the Brinker community.

 

volunteer interest form

The Brinker PTA has many events and activities throughout the school year where volunteers are needed.  If you are looking for a great way to get involved, complete a volunteer interest form.  Completing this form does not commit you to volunteering; it only adds you to the contact list to receive more detailed information.  To help out directly in your child's classroom, please consider volunteering for homeroom or lead homeroom representative.  We need strong volunteers to help put together the classroom parties and other class specific events.  For additional information, please contact the Grade Level Coordinator at gradelevelreps@brinkerpta.org or the VP of Volunteers at volunteers@brinkerpta.org.

 

PISD VOLUNTEER APPLICATIOn

Have you completed a PISD Volunteer Application for the 2018-19 school year? PISD requires all volunteers to complete a new application EVERY school year, and security checks are strictly enforced to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  We encourage ALL parents to complete and submit an application, whether you are one of our volunteers or just planning to attend a classroom party.  For additional information, please contact our VP of Volunteers at volunteers@brinkerpta.org.

 

PTA directorY

Each year, the PTA publishes a printed directory of parent members and their students (including grade information).  Only PTA members are included in the directory and only PTA members are eligible to receive a free copy.  To ensure your information is included, please join our PTA by Friday, September 14 by clicking here.  To ensure accuracy, please verify your contact information and update your student's grade and teacher for this new school year on Parent and Student Information form.  For questions, please e-mail us at directory@brinkerpta.org

 

 KINDERGARTEN LUNCH buddies

Volunteer as Kindergarten Lunch Buddies beginning on Monday, August 20.  For everyday throughout the school year, we will need 2 volunteers to support our staff by helping the students open lunch items, walking through the lunch line, and/or guiding the students to the restrooms.  Please sign up here.  If you have any questions, please contact us at kindergartenbuddies@brinkerpta.org.

 

library volunteer orientation

Come volunteer in the Brinker Library! This is a wonderful opportunity to see your child/ grandchild in the school setting while at the same time providing much needed help to our wonderful librarian, Mrs. Pattie Pearson.  On Tuesday, August 21 from 8:30 - 9 am, there will be a 30-minute library orientation for those who have not volunteered before (or anyone who wants a refresher) in the library.  Mrs. Pearson will review how the library is organized, re-shelving books, how to check-in and check-out library materials.  If you are not able to attend this training, please contact the Library Volunteers Coordinator, Stephanie Kaleba, at library@brinkerpta.org to arrange for a separate time for training.
 

workroom volunteer training

Are you looking for a way to help out at the school but need flexibility?  Then the Brinker Workroom is a great place to volunteer!  We need at least 4-5 volunteers each week to help teachers with projects, saving them precious time for lesson planning and other tasks.  Come in any time from 7:30 am to 2:45 pm for however long you can stay!  If you can count, cut, and staple then you can help!  We will be holding two training sessions on Tuesday, August 21 at 7:45 am and on Wednesday, August 22 at 2:15 pm.  Come to the session that best fits your schedule, and we will meet in the front office to sign in first.  For any questions contact Katie Luong at workroom@brinkerpta.org.
 

 

KINDERGARTEN parent information night

Kindergarten Parent Information Night will be held on Tuesday, August 28 from 6 - 7 pm.  Parents are invited to classroom meetings with your child's teacher to receive important information about what you and your child can expect in this new school year. You will also have the opportunity to sign up to volunteer for classroom parties sponsored by the PTA.

TUESDAY TUNES

Tuesday Tunes is a Brinker PTA program that allows students who have taken formal music lessons to perform in a relaxed environment here at Brinker starting Tuesday, September 4.  Each Tuesday morning, a Brinker student performs their musical instrument in the lobby as students enter the school.  Following their performance, the student will be introduced and recognized on the "Good Morning Brinker" broadcast.  Any Brinker student who has had two years of formal musical training is invited to perform.  Each student can perform once a year; however, if your student wants to courageously start the season for us this September, you will receive a bonus second performance later in the year.  Please click here to sign up.  For more information, please email us at tuesdaytunes@brinkerpta.org.
