    PROVIDING PARENTS, STUDENTS, AND STAFF NEWS AND INFORMATION ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

     

     
    Whether you are a new family to North Brandywine or a returning family, we look forward to seeing you at North.  The PTA board is excited about another great year of working together with you and the staff.  Our hope is that we will continue to see the support, excitement, and enthusiasm of our families as we work towards the benefit of our students and the school.  By working together, we can truly make a difference in the lives of our children.
     
    Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month during the school year and begin at 7:00 pm in the school library.  They last about an hour and are a great way to learn about all the things that are happening here at North.
     
     
    You can also stay informed by joining our email distribution list by emailing your name and email address to:  secretary@nbpta.org.

    Why get involved with your child’s school?  The Value of Volunteering...
      
    From the Kidshealth website:  “Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community.  The school isn’t the only one to reap the benefits of your involvement.  By offering some of your time to the school, and by interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you can gain a first-hand understanding of your child’s daily activities and some insight into the trends and fads of school life that will help you communicate with your child as he or she grows and changes (all without intruding on your child’s privacy or personal space).”
