We are the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for Brook Knoll Elementary School. Signup to receive our emails.
Our focus for the 2019/2020 school year is CONNECTION. We want parents to connect to their children, children connect with their teachers, parents and teachers connecting, and everyone connected to our earth with our brand new Knoll Gardens Program (Life Lab)! Through all of these connections we hope to build a strong Brook Knoll community where children and families feel welcome, providing a positive, well rounded, educational experience!
To help get more connected, BKEC will be sponsoring Talk&Walk and POP playdates! For Talk&Walk we will be meeting at the Henry Cowell Parking lot on Sims Rd. across from Brook Knoll Drive. Come join us for a morning walk through beautiful Henry Cowell State Park. If you have a little one at home, bring a stroller and get to know your BKEC board and meet new friends! We will also be sponsoring a couple of Wednesday after school play dates with POP&POP (popcorn and popsicles) available. Look for the dates in the BKEC calendar!
We also provide fun events throughout the year which builds community while raising money for our wonderful programs at Brook Knoll. Look for these BKEC events in the calendar this year; Fall Festival, Buck-A-Book, Knoll Gardens market days, Sign-up Parties, and our amazing Auction night!
Did you know BKEC funds Art in Action, Code Naturally, Science, Music, Computer Lab, Intervention, Classroom Aides, Garden Aides, Teacher support, Campus Beautification, and Mileage club? Please check out the tabs for updates on our new Knoll Gardens (Life Lab) projects. This project was completely supported by the generous donations from parents who donated to our yearly fund-a-need.
Beyond these programs, we also fund needs around the school to help keep it clean and safe. We were able to fix the kiln so teachers can continue to create ceramic projects in class. We also help with landscaping needs, painting buildings, and murals on campus to help our students feel safe and welcome at school. All these areas contribute to creating a positive, welcoming environment for all our students. We have also been able to upgrade our school’s computer technology equipment.
We are so appreciative for the time, energy, and money our parents give to support our students and teachers. We want every parent to be part of our Brook Knoll Eagle Connection in some way! There is a place for everyone. We want to get to know one another and help build a strong Brook Knoll community.
