Brookhaven Bobcats PTA

PTA2019

Most of 2020 has been a difficult and challenging year in so many ways. Families worldwide are dealing with a public health crisis, economic uncertainties, social unrest, and more. We know this very much goes for our students and families and our teachers and staff as well. While many traditional programs and events will not make sense, we are still planning to support and enrich the Brookhaven community. 

In May, we partnered with school leadership to quickly mobilize to provide much needed financial relief to Brookhaven families; the program was called Brookhaven Cares. Together, we distributed $2,600 in assistance directly to 52 families via Amazon and Visa gift cards. The only way the PTA was able to help was through the support of parents and teacher’s membership dollars, donations, and past monies from past fundraisers. So, we thank each one of you! Brookhaven Cares showed the power of an active PTA – being there for our students and families.  

And while this school year is very different than anyone anticipated or ever experienced, there is still an opportunity for Brookhaven Bobcats PTA to serve the Brookhaven Elementary School community – and we need you to do so!
