Brawerman WEST Parent Association

Parents enrich our School community through their participation and generosity. The dedication of the Parent Association and volunteers is evident throughout the year as we celebrate holidays, have fundraisers, provide for those in need, welcome incoming families, organize school-wide events, and facilitate the daily carpool line.

The Parent Association Executive Board oversees the activities of over 20 volunteer committees. All parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged. From Kindergarten classroom journaling to proud moments of graduation, parents are here to create and maintain connections solidifying the Brawerman community. 

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