If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Brinker PTA encourages all students to express themselves and explore their talents through the National PTA Reflections Program. The 2018-2019 theme is “Heroes Around Me”, and entries should be dropped off in the Brinker gym by Friday, November 2. Use your imagination to create a film, song, artwork, photograph, poem, short story, or dance routine. Click here for the flyer for more information. For questions, please contact email@example.com.
FIELD DAY AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Brinker's Annual Field Day will be held on Friday, November 9, with K-G2's activities from 8 am - 11 am and G3-5's activities from 11 am - 2 pm. Students will be outside, so please dress your child in weather-appropriate clothing and apply sunscreen/bug spray before school. Stay tuned for more details! This is one of the kids' favorite events of the year. We still need volunteers, so please click here to sign up.
SPIRIT WEAR SALE
Friday is Brinker Spirit Day, so show your Brinker pride by wearing spirit wear proudly every Friday! Pre-ordered shirts have all been delivered to your students. If you have not received your order or have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Didn't pre-order spirit wear? We can help! Click here to order from the inventory the PTA purchased to help you just in case. Limited quantities
It's time to start collecting BOX TOPS! It's easy to participate! Just bring all your box tops from home and drop them in the collection box right outside the gym. Each Box Top you clip and submit is worth 10 cents, and they add up fast! If each Brinker child were to simply clip 10 box tops, it would generate nearly $700 for our school. Imagine the possibilities! Thanks for your support! Questions? Contact email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or the VP of Volunteers at email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
