PTA

Welcome to the Bromwell Parent Teacher Association site! Communication is a vital part of any volunteer organization, and the PTA
is no different. We hope that the information on this website helps you find out more about upcoming events and discover ways that you can get involved.

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 the Auction in the winter. Volunteering opportunities both large and small are available throughout the year, as are community-building events that let our community spend time together.Read more about our fundraising.

The dues to join the Bromwell PTA are $6.25 per person. Roughly half that money is paid as dues to the Colorado PTA under which we are organized, and the rest is used for administrative expense and to cover the PTA membership dues of our teachers. Checks for dues can be made out to Bromwell PTA (please put “PTA dues” on the memo line), and dues cover only the school year in which they are paid.
Use the link at the top of this page to print out a membership form to accompany your check.

Board Meetings take place on the third Wednesday of every month in the conference room and are open to all Bromwell parents and teachers. Only registered PTA members may cast votes.
