Back to School BBQ

Welcome back families!

Our back to school BBQ is scheduled for August 25th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm!

Brownsville students and parents are invited to come meet their teacher for 2016-2017 and visit their new classroom from 12:00-1:00 pm.  You may also drop off your classroom supplies to the teacher and any classroom money in a sealed envelope, with your child’s name on it.

The PTSA will be selling hot dogs and ice cream from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm; however, if you bring in a ream of 20# copy paper that day, you will receive one free hot dog lunch for each ream of paper! Also by joining PTSA on August 25th you will receive FREE ice cream for your family!

A couple of things to consider this year!  PTSA can now accept credit/debit cards (processed via Square) at major events!  To help move lines along we will have stations for Bearwear (with our NEW LOGO!), Membership, Volunteer Information, and paper donations!  Stop in at each station and get an order form slip,  take that slip to one of 2 check outs (one will be cash & check only, one will be Credit Card Only!).  We will also have a third check out if you are just wanting to purchase hot dog(s)/ice cream.  You must have a ticket for hot dog(s) or ice cream!  You can get those tickets at our cash registers!

We can’t wait to see you on Thursday!

Brownsville 2016 Jog-A-Thon


100% of the profits from this years Jog-a-thon will be earmarked for the schools new sound system!

We hope that in the next few years to come this will be our major fundraiser, so we need our Parents & Friends of Brownsville to please get involved and support our students!

Need to know the prize levels:  Prizes   The prizes are one per level unless you are picking a combination where it says “2 Level D” for example. If you have any questions on the prizes please don’t hesitate to contact us at

What is a Jog-a-thon? The Jog-A-Thon is where families, friends and neighbors pledge money to support the students as they jog or walk in the Jog-A-Thon, which takes place during your child’s regular school day. Brownsville students run (or jog, walk, skip, etc.) laps around the school running track during a 20 minute time period. All students will participate as part of their regular physical fitness program, unless there is a medical reason why the student should not participate.


How do we raise money? Before the day of the Jog-A-Thon, each student obtains pledges and donations in support of his/her Jog-A-Thon efforts. Sponsors may sign up to pledge a flat dollar amount and/or a per lap donation. Our goal is to raise at least $15,000. All of the profits (money raised less prizes for students) will be earmarked the sound system this year (2016).


Can I get involved? ABSOLUTELY! There are many opportunities to help out with this event before, during, and after! Please email our coordinators at

What do I do next? Please collect pledges and donations on your pledge form. Ask family, relatives, friends, co-workers, employers, etc. for support. DON’T FORGET TO SIGN AND TURN IN YOUR PLEDGE FORM (and flat donation funds) by March 25th.

PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!  After the Jog-A-Thon, students will get their pledge sheet back with the total due (laps x donation per lap).  These forms with payment are due back to the school no later than April 11th!  Prizes will be verified and be ready to go home around April 18th.  A prize sheet will accompany the donation sheet and be sent home in early March.

Thank you in advance for your generous support!


Donations Needed! If you, or the company you work for, would like to donate items as prizes for our Jog-A-Thon, please contact the Brownsville PTSA at We can use gift cards, electronics, games, toys, and tickets for activities/events… really anything our students would like!
