We Need Your Feedback for Back to School Planning!

Browning PTA

Dear Browning Supporters:

Happy August! 

We are gearing up to what is sure to be an amazing school year!  We hope to bring awareness to the importance of physical activity & good nutrition to equip sudents for a day of learning and a lifetime of health! Our theme is designed to encourage families to celebrate healthy lifestyles & assist with having Browning recertified as a “Green School.”

 The start of a new school year always brings energy & excitement.  What better time than now to engage our families & solicit ideas for 2010/2011 Browning PTA events & initiatives.  Please take a few minutes to complete the following survey and share your thoughts on how we can improve our efforts to support our students, staff, & bring the entire community together.

 As you know, budget cuts have had an impact on every school and Browning is no exception. Browning Elementary will receive just $86 per pupil this year from the district for supplies. Each school’s supply budget is based on enrollment and is adjusted by category throughout the year at the principal’s discretion. Without PTA fundraising dollars, volunteers, & your great ideas/special talents, the opportunity for on-site learning experiences, field trips, playground equipment, supplemental learning materials, and Family Fun Events would not be possible.  For more information on UCS budget allocations & PTA financial statements, please click on PTA Budget page to the right of this post.

Please submit the brief survey &/or contact one of  our parent group leaders if you have a suggestion to share or could offer assistance with a fitness or nutrition education event.  Thanks in advance for your time & feedback. We look forward to working with all of you to make 2010/2011 a great year!

Best Regards,

Your 2010/2011 PTA Leadership Team
