Important Information and Upcoming Events
Session II of the after-school chess enrichment program will start on January 10th, 2019. The program is eight weeks long and takes place on Thursdays from 4-5:15 pm in the Brinker Library. Registration begins on Monday, December 3, on the PTA website here.
NEW & GENTLY USED BOOK DRIVE
New and gently used books will be collected during the week of December 17 to 21. These books will be donated to Meadows Elementary School for their summer "Take a Book Home!" reading program. Donation bins will be located in each grade area. As always, thank you for your support and generosity. Please contact our Community Outreach Chairs at communityoutreach@
Classroom winter parties will take place on Thursday, December 20. Emails about volunteer and donation opportunities have been sent by the homeroom representatives. Please remember that volunteers must be security cleared through the PISD website here, and this process may take up to two weeks to complete. For any questions, please contact your homeroom representative or Jessica Bader, PTA Grade Level Coordinator, at gradelevelreps@brinkerpta.
CULTURAL DIVERSITY DAY
Cultural Diversity Day is a full day event on Friday, January 25, 2019, and students learn about the different countries around the world and their cultures. We are still looking for volunteers. If you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
The 2018-2019 PTA Directories have all been distributed. If you are a PTA member but have not received a copy of the directory, or have any other questions, please contact Sarah Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com or the VP of Volunteers at firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com.
Our V.I.P. Program is an awesome, fun way for parents, grandparents, or community members to volunteer and help our Brinker students directly. You would commit half an hour a week to assist a student who needs a little extra help in math and/or reading, boosting the student’s confidence in his/her academics. You do not need to be a teacher or a former teacher. The student’s teacher will provide you with the assignments and information for each tutoring session. If interested, please e-mail viptutors@brinkerpta.
