Parent Teacher Association

Mission

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.

Join the PTA

The Bromwell PTSA is a collective, active voice for decisions that impact your student’s health, safety and quality of education! Dues are $6.25 per person, per year.

Benefits of Membership

Volunteer

Be a part of your student’s learning experience by assisting in the classrooms and helping to organize fundraising and community building events. In the same way that our school would be a different place without the funds we raise, the same is true for the time and dedication of adult volunteers. Last year over 65 volunteers donated countless hours to Bromwell!

This is our seventh year at Bromwell, and we have two students currently at our school, Grace in 4th grade and Audrey in 1st grade.  Our oldest went to Bromwell for Kindergarten-5th grade and is headed to 6th grade this fall. The Bromwell Community has meant a lot to our family, and I look forward to supporting the students, staff, and parents as Co-President this academic year.

This is my third and last year at Bromwell, with Abigail (Abbey), in 5th grade.  I also have an 8th grader at Hill and an 11th grader at East.  I believe strongly in public education and advocacy for our young learners and school community.  I look forward to being a part of a group of incredibly proactive and caring PTA members and volunteers in making this a great school year after a long challenging period of learning for our kids.
