Greetings, Brentwood families,

We hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. This is our last edition of the Bark for this school year!

Since the earliest days, Texas PTA leaders and members have sought to fulfill our mission to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We are proud to share that Brentwood PTA has been recognized by Texas PTA’s Advocacy Impact Award program for our work this year! With the next Texas Legislative session kicking off in January, expect Brentwood PTA to continue to focus on advocacy opportunities for and with our community next school year. Texas PTA will need our support—both in membership numbers and effort—to help increase vital funding for public education.

A Well-Deserved Parents’ Night Out

Thank you for joining the fun at The Violet Crown Wine Bar & Coffee Shop for this year’s Brentwood After Dark fundraiser! We had a great time hanging out together, and we appreciate the many silent auction contributions that came from this community—especially the experiences donated by teachers. And how about all the art that our students made with their amazing art teachers! 

A big thank you also goes out to Principal Hosack for contributing the “Principal for a Day” experience to the raffle. In addition to the raffle tickets sold for this fun opportunity, each Brentwood teacher also nominated students for inclusion in the drawing. Our winner was Sara Glakas—congratulations Sara!

Another note of thanks goes to our Title Sponsors, The Violet Crown Wine Bar & Coffee Shop and Ally Medical. Their donations made so much of our event possible—we’re grateful for the support! Many thanks to them and all of our other sponsors, including Make at Rosie, Teal Seal Swim, Gelato Paradiso, New Belgium Brewery, Allandale Vet Clinic, Eldorado Cafe, Dia’s Market, Sherwood Pediatric Dentistry, and Kosmic Kombucha.

Dying to Be a Fall Tie-Dye Captain?

We have good news! Volunteers are needed to lead their grade level in our great T-shirt tie-dyeing tradition. This time-honored commitment includes a 2-hour weekend morning meet-up along with 3 hours on a school day to lead and support your grade’s tie-dyeing event. Approximately 2 to 3 captains per grade would be optimal. Please reach out to with your interest and/or any questions. Additional volunteer sign-ups will happen in the fall for those who want to join the tie-dye fun!
