Reading Enrichment

The Brinker PTA encourages our students' development of the love of reading. We do this through support of the 2x2 and Bluebonnet reading programs, in partnership with Brinker Librarian, Ms. Hope Kearney. Email for the reading lists!


At the end of the year, PTA sponsors a recognition party for the super readers.
