What is the PTA? What is its purpose?
The PTA was the first advocacy organization for public school students in the USA
Advocacy means giving a voice to those who might not be heard, such as children who can't vote, people with disabilities, immigrants, wounded veterans, and more.
The PTA works at the national, state, and local levels to speak up for ALL of our students, and have been doing so for decades. This includes lobbying our representatives, working with school boards, helping keep driver's education and specials in our schools, fighting for the rights of students with special needs, and so much more.
Brentwood is a small school, with a small core of dedicated volunteers, but we advocate for our students by supporting our teachers and students in any way that we can. It's little things, that you might not notice, like the quiet room we made sure to have at our Spring Fling for students who might need a sensory break, or the information we might send out to keep you aware of what is happening in education today.
Please join us, as we strive to keep our school a wonderful place for every student.
