Your PTO


Connecting with the Brackett PTO is a great way to become involved in your child’s education. 

Take advantage of the opportunities to be present for small moments in the classroom, such as visiting as a one-time mystery reader in your child’s classroom. Or you can have a lasting impact on the direction of your child’s education by working with the STEM Committee or PTO Board.  

We’ve made it easy for parents with busy lives to connect in a way that works for their schedules, with volunteer opportunities big and small throughout the year. Have an area of expertise that you think would be helpful? We’d love to hear from you.  We welcome all parents to drop in on PTO meetings to get the most up-to-date information about what’s happening in our schools.
