June 2019 Newsletter
At the end of May, Brookvale 6th graders spent four days at Science Camp at Mount Hermon in the Santa Cruz mountains. The PTA funded the buses for the camp for a total of $3300. We thank our generous donors who have enabled this contribution, and we hope to be able to support Science Camp in the coming years.
Taking PTA Membership Online - PTA TOTEM
For the past three years, the PTA has steadily automated our unit’s communications, processes, and programs to make the PTA experience more efficient. Next year, to simplify membership sign-up, Brookvale PTA is implementing TOTEM, the National PTA’s online sign-up tool. We will provide a link for easy sign-up for the 2019-20 school year. Please look for information in our August newsletter, which will be emailed to current members and featured on our website, Facebook page, and Konstella.

Water Filtration System
This year, our PTA voted to allocate leftover funds to buy water filtration and refill systems. The goal is to replace outdated water fountains on campus so children can have easy access to filtered water. We have just received news that the facilities request to the district to install these new systems has been APPROVED! We are very excited and hope to have the installation completed over the summer, in time for the next school year. Stay tuned!
Spirit/Box Tops Winners
The final Spirit Contest for the year was a Box Tops contest. The winners for May are Ms. Schilling’s First Grade class and Ms. Summers’ 5th Grade class! Congratulations to our winners and keep collecting Box Tops!!
