The role of the Bromwell Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is to raise funds, promote volunteering, support our faculty and teachers and foster a sense of community. Most of the money raised during the year is given to the school as an annual grant, and the Collaborative School Committee (CSC) decides how that money can best benefit our school and its students. Fundraising takes place with the Annual Fund in the fall and a fundraising event in the Spring. Volunteering opportunities both large and small are available throughout the year, as are community-building events that let our community spend time together.
The dues to join the Bromwell PTA are $6.25 per person, all of which is paid to the Colorado PTA under which we are organized. You can pay online through Bromwell’s PayPal account.
Or, you may pay by check by filling out a membership form and returning it to Bromwell’s front office. Checks should be made payable to Bromwell PTA (please put “PTA dues” on the memo line). Membership dues cover only the school year in which they are paid.
PTA Meetings take place every month and are open to all Bromwell parents and teachers. Please refer to the school calendar on the homepage for specific meeting dates and times. Only registered PTA members may cast votes.
VOLUNTEERING AT BROMWELL
You don’t have to join the PTA to volunteer! Bromwell’s community is vibrant, active and thriving because of the hours that you give in the classroom, on committees and at special events. Whether you have an occasional hour to give or multiple hours on a regular basis, we have opportunities for those who want to help.

This is our fourth year at Bromwell and my son Mason is beginning second grade. I also have a daughter at East High School. Last year I was on the board as VP of Fundraising and have assisted in the auction as well as served as ECE and kindergarten room parent.
