Join the Bruin Village! *Please note, the Bruin Village is closed for donations for 2018-2019, but if you want to join the PTA, it’s not too late! We encourage each family to join our PTA through a $20 annual membership. Click here to join.
Launched in 2018, the Bruin Village fundraising campaign is for families who wish to donate to the PTA early and all at once so they don’t need to worry about fundraising for the Walk-A-Jog.
Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for our families. The Bruin Village consolidates PTA fundraising, making donating simpler for families and enabling our PTA to more effectively budget and plan programs based on funds raised early in the school year.
To join the Bruin Village, we are asking for a one-time PTA donation of $250 per student that will help us reach our overall goal and will give donor families many benefits including:
- One-time donation for the school year allowing more efficient spending
- No need for your child or family to collect pledges for Walk-a-Jog
- Family PTA membership
- Family recognition on our Bruin Village Roster that will be proudly displayed at all school community events
Walk-a-Jog - BA’s biggest community event of the year! *PAST EVENT*
Sunday, October 22, 2018, 10:00am-1:00pm
The Brittan Acres Walk-a-Jog (WAJ) is a fun, enjoyable and worthwhile event for the whole family! The students run, jog or walk around the BA blacktop, which provides a unique opportunity for the school community to gather while exercising, raising money, AND creating memories all at the same time. Join friends and families for a casual carnival with food and games. Students will get a Free T-Shirt upon registration.
NEW! In the past, WAJ was the PTA’s primary fundraising event of the school year. To lessen the fundraising burden of pledge gathering and a sometimes overwhelming number of emails associated with WAJ fundraising, we have started the Bruin Village campaign for families that prefer to donate one time at the start of the school year. Although we have created our Bruin Village campaign, all families are welcome to pledge through Walk-A-Jog and raise more funds for BA.
