Brawerman East Parent Association

The overarching goal of Brawerman Elementary School East is to provide students with the best possible educational experience. Research shows that students achieve more when parents and teachers work together. This knowledge forms the basis of our Parent Association.

As a relatively new school, our Parent Association is a work in progress. The formation of the Parent Association is very much parent driven and has taken on the flavor of our community.

Parents volunteer in classrooms, support classroom and school programming, program community activities, make recommendations to school administration and work together to create an incredible school community.

Brawerman East would not be the school it is without the active participation of Brawerman East parents.

Many opportunities are available for you to get involved at Brawerman. Committees are listed under separate headings: Brawerman EAST/WEST and EAST/WEST and Early Childhood Centers.
