Help Fund Great Programs at Brookside!

Brookside Elementary PTA sponsors and coordinates a vast array of programs a year ranging from family events to after-school enrichment classes as a way to promote and support Brookside families in education, community building, safety and FUN!

In order to do this we are an active fundraising school. Our largest fundraiser of the year is our Annual Auction and Gala. We know that auctions are not for everyone and there are many other opportunities throughout the year our families can support our school.

For the school year September 2018 – June 2019, Emma Bagnell and Lisa Schultz Golden serve as your Ways and Means co-chairs. Feel free to reach out via questions or suggestions via email

PLEASE NOTE: For this current school year, we are taking a hiatus from the Big Kahuna Fundraiser. We have received mixed reviews about this fundraiser and due to the success of our other fundraisers; we decided to sit it out this year. We wanted to let Brookside families know as we know for some families they regularly order. 

We welcome any feedback on this topic.
