Get Involved

We challenge you to give at least two hours to a PTA program this school year. That’s approximately 425 students x 2 hours = 850 PTA volunteer hours this year. Think what we could accomplish together!

Contact us to let us know what events interest you!

All PTA programs, events and activities need team leaders plus committee/program volunteers.  We have opportunities big and small – from chairing (leading a committee) to sending in store bought food items for school events. Please review the volunteer opportunities and let us know which programs you would be interested in participating with during the school year.  All dates subject to change due to school/district events.

Join The PTA Today!

The Browns Point Elementary School PTA has been actively committed to the success of our school’s  students, staff and teachers for over 30 years. Because of moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles just like you is how we continue this tradition.

 

Volunteering with PTA can work with the time you have available. But we can’t work without the brilliant ideas, then endless energy, or the dedication of parents just like you!  There is a place for you in the Browns Point PTA.

 

Visit our online store to purchase a household ($24) or a single ($12) PTA membership. Joining PTA means you are a part of a very special group of parents who want to be more connected to their children's school. 

Three decades of research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school. 

Watch D.O.G.S.

Are you a dad, grandpa, uncle, big brother, or other male role model that would like to participate in Watch D.O.G.S (Dads Of Great Students)?

Support your student(s) and teachers by providing a great role model in school during class and recess. 

Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer slots are on Monday and Friday each week, with a morning and afternoon session available for each of these days.

Books For Birthdays

Leave a legacy by donating a book to our library!


Make your child’s birthday extra special and help our library to grow by donating the cost of a new book to the Browns Point Elementary library.

 

Purchase pre-selected books directly from the Browns Point Amazon Wish List and have them shipped to the school library. The school librarian keeps the book wish list current on Amazon. Please be sure to include your child’s name in the gift message section when ordering.

The wish list may be accessed using this link. If on Amazon directly, under the “Wish List” drop down menu, select “Find a Wish List or Registry” and search for Browns Point Elementary.


Once the book is purchased, your child will get to be the first to check out the book, and it will come with a special book plate affixed to the inside cover with your child’s name and the year the book was donated. Please note that your donation is tax-deductible, and you will be provided with a receipt for your records.

 

This is a wonderful way to celebrate your child and help grow our fabulous library. We will celebrate all those who have donated a book with an end of the year Books for Birthdays Party.

Volunteer

All  PTA  programs,  events  and  activities need team leaders plus committee volunteers. We encourage all Browns Point Elementary PTA members and parents to participate. We have opportunities big and small. From leading a committee to sending in store bought food items for school events.

Requests for volunteers are generally sent in the weekly In The Loop Newsletter but we also encourage you to reach out to us with your interest and availability!  

People are often reluctant to participate because they are afraid they will get pulled into a black hole of never-ending volunteering. We don’t want that to happen. We won’t push you to commit more than you want or are able to.  

We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities and all are fun, interesting and rewarding. Review the list of PTA sponsored programs below and let us know if any are of interest to you!
