Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by Volunteering

While many consider Monday Jan. 17th a”holiday” or day off work/school, let’s take a moment to reflect with our children the real reason:  To honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..  Dr. King is usually remembered for his role in the civil rights movement — delivering the “I Have A Dream” speech at a time when such words were still controversial and, ultimately, giving his own life to the cause of equality. What many forget was his dedication to community service.  Through his heroic leadership, he demonstrated what we can accomplish when we stand together.  Dr. King once said, ”Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’”

The Browning PTA greatly appreciates the support, time, & efforts our families and staff have always given us.  We are truly blessed!  However, we are still in need of volunteers to help with our upcoming BINGO & “Donuts with Dad” events, Adventures in Art presenters, an Apparel Order Coordinator, March is Reading Month activities, Family Reading Night, Staff Appreciation Week, etc.  Treasure these opportunities!  Every time we pitch in, we get so much back!  And just the think of the wonderful example you are setting for your children!

For more information or to volunteer, please  visit http://browningpta.org/volunteering/volunteers-needed/ or email one of our PTA leaders. 

Some of you may have read the following essays….They are a cute, witty take on volunteering at school.  We wanted to share them with our new families to welcome their fresh perspective & enthusiasm as “newbies” and as a fun reminder to us “grizzled veterans” as to why we ensure we are a presence at Browning.  Enjoy!
