October 2019 Newsletter

Music for Minors

Brookvale PTA is delighted to partner with Music For Minors II to bring music lessons into our classrooms. In a few weeks, we will begin music lessons for all our kindergarten classes. Your donations to the PTA will help us sponsor the fees for the program for all the kindergarten students.

We are extremely grateful to our parent volunteers, Vikki Dong and Suwarna Ganjre, who have signed up to be our first two Music Docents and have been training with MFM II for the past few weeks. We highly encourage more parents to sign up for the free training, so we can have more docents to bring the lessons to the other grades as well. If you are interested, or want more information, please email:


PTA-Sponsored Assembly

This year's PTA-sponsored school assemblies got off to a great start on October 8th with a drawing assembly taught by Kyle Tiernan. The PTA is proud to have him back for the third year in a row. All students were treated to a 45-minute drawing experience that included art instruction, humor, and the creation of three large pencil drawings ready to bring home.


Support Our Teachers

Please consider making a donation to support your child’s classroom and the teachers who go the extra mile for our students. In prior years, the PTA designated nearly 80% of our total income to the classrooms to reimburse teachers for their out of pocket expenses. However, teachers were often not reimbursed until the end of the school year. In order to have funds available to teachers much earlier in the year, while following district fundraising guidelines, the Bronco Gallop will be run by the school. Blue Bronco Gallop packets were sent home in your child’s Thursday folder. Please donate online at or return the envelop with your donation enclosed.


Fremont Run 4 Education

The event is sponsored by the Fremont Education Foundation. Every elementary school will
receive funds for participating. As of 10/13, Brookvale had 44 participants registered. Let's see if we can get to the next funding level and earn more money for Brookvale!
