Notes from the PTA Presidents

Working Together for a Brighter Future

As we close out the 2021 - 22 school year, we’d like to thank you for your generous contributions to the Brittan Acres PTA. Because of your volunteer efforts and donations, we’re able to support our teachers and staff, build community, and enrich the school day for all our children.

Looking ahead, we are excited to announce that we are partnering with the San Carlos Education Foundation to streamline and simplify fundraising across the district.

Beginning next school year, all fundraising will be led by the capable team at SCEF. PTAs will not hold separate fundraising drives as we have in the past. This efficient new model provides clarity and simplicity to donors.

At the same time, it frees up the PTA to focus on our core community building mission. This Fall, the annual SCEF suggested donation will increase to include funding for PTA budgets. While fundraising messages will come directly from SCEF, your donations will support the activities you have come to expect from your PTA, in addition to the educators and programs that SCEF has always funded.

Once again, thank you! We appreciate your continued support. Stay tuned over the summer for more information about SCEF's expanded role in supporting our students and our schools.

Buddy Families Needed

Hello BA Families! Would you be interested in reaching out to a family who is new to our school? Sign up and we will reach out when we have a family for you to contact. We have had great success in the past getting a willing squad of "Host Families," so it is usually a commitment to reach out to one or two families. New families often have simple questions about the school calendar, unique school events, or extracurriculars that are better answered by people who are in the fray with them. Outreach can be as simple as an email or phone call, or it could be more--like a coffee date or playdate. Thanks for considering it!
