It truly takes a village to make Brittan Acres such a spectacular school and community. Support your PTA by joining the Bruin Village for 2019-2020. Your one-time PTA donation of $250 per student helps us reach our goal and supports the many programs and services that make BA so special.
NEW for 2019-2020 Brittan Acres is piloting a STEAM program! STEAM is an educational approach that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics to prepare students to think both critically and creatively.
Volunteering is a great way to build community while supporting students. There are lots of options - some bigger and some smaller - some during school hours and many that can be done from home. It takes a village and we need you!

A Note About Blast
Those of you returning to BA will notice that Blast looks a bit different this year. We are shifting our approach to communications with the goal of greater simplicity, consistency, and accessibility. Going forward, we’ll deliver Blast in the format you see here: short summaries of content that link back to richer information on the BA website. That means you’ll always find the most up-to-date information on www.brittanacres.org
