Here are some helpful ways you can
show caring for our community:
Buy H.E.B. & Randall's Grocery Cards
Grocery card program has started, Randallls will donate 5%of your
are purchased through the PTA once a month. You purchase a $50 or
$100 gift card, good for its full face value in grocery purchases,
and the store rebates their percentage to the PTA. These gift cards
spend like money, but cannot be redeemed for cash. To order send checks to
your child's teacher labeled "PTA Grocery Cards" or contact
Karrie Mannella at email@example.com.
Clip out Boxtops for Education or Shop Online
Clip out "Boxtops" from specially-labeled food products. Students can "purchase"
small items from our "Boxtops School Store" on Friday mornings before school, or
you can drop off your Boxtops in the bin in the main hallway near the office. You
can even earn money for Brentwood by shopping online through the Boxtops website.Find more at www.boxtops4education.com.
Visit our Volunteer Center
The Volunteer Center is now open and located in the Teacher's Lounge.
The Volunteer Center is for parents to help teachers prepare
instructional materials, i.e. copy, laminate, cut, etc. This will
enable teachers to spend their Planning Time *planning* If you have
time please stop by and see if there is any work to do. Remember to log your volunteer
hours in at the office. Brentwood gets matching $$ and community volunteers.
Join our Fundraising Team
There is a small team of fundraisers trying to get local business donations
for Brentwood. If you would like to approach even one business--or a private
citizen--they would be happy to send you the pledge form and the cover letter.
This would, of course, include friends, relatives, and employers. The donations
are tax-deductible,and if it's a business we will publicize their name to parents.
