Local unit PTAs like Brookside work within their own schools to enrich the educational experience for students, support families, and build community. We raise monies for materials, after-school programs, field trips, assemblies and more,
and organize hundreds of volunteers every year to help make Brookside the great school it is. In addition, we are connected to the Washington State PTA and the National PTA, both of which provide powerful lobbying efforts on behalf of all children. For more than 100 years, PTA has been at the forefront of issues affecting children, parents and public schools. PTA is credited with lobbying for establishing Kindergarten in public schools, hot lunch programs, juvenile justice and child-labor laws, school bus safety and TV ratings efforts, to name a few. 

If you have not yet joined the PTA or have not renewed your membership, please visit our Membership page. Please help us reach our goal of 100% membership!
