Brookside PTA Board Does Amazing Work

I attended my first Brookside Elementary PTA board meeting yesterday and I was amazed at how much great work was being done by just a handful of people. They are running an efficient and productive organization with only about 6-10 dedicated parents and teachers doing almost all the work.

I was there to get their support for the Parent Involvement software that the district refuses to make a priority. I know there are many parents at Brookside who appreciate all the work the PTA does but don't realize how few people are involved in the operations and support. I am more committed than ever now to increase parent involvement at Brookside and convince the BUSD administration and board to actively participate in developing a district wide parent involvement program.

I want to thank the PTA board for authorizing the funds to purchase the program for developing our school's volunteer program. I promise their decision to support my efforts will pay off.
