Brentfield PTA is an association made up of K-6 parents, teachers, administrators and community members who work together to provide an exceptional educational experience and learning environment to help our children succeed today and in the future!

 

 Together, we make this happen with our annual Paw Pride Pledge Drive and Membership Drive in the Fall; and school Auction in the Spring.  The funds we raise from these events, allow the Brentfield PTA to support programs and events throughout the year as well as provide funding for programs and learning tools that enhance and enrich experiences in and out of the classroom.
