Please join us on Tuesday, August 22 at 7:30 am after morning drop off for a Welcome Back Coffee and the year's first General PTA Membership Meeting. It is a great way to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about what the Brinker PTA does and how you can get involved. Immediately following the Welcome Back Coffee (at 7:45 a.m.), we will have our first PTA General Membership Meeting of the new school year. There will be business discussed and welcoming remarks from Principal Barbara Lange.

 

 

 

 

PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT

Parent Information Nights will be held on Tuesday, August 22 for Grades 1-5 and on Tuesday, September 5 for Kindergarten.  During these evenings, 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 as a volunteer for our PTA sponsored classroom parties.
