We are a parent group that meets monthly throughout the school year to collaborate with administrators and staff to plan fundraisers and events that enrich, support, and connect the ENTIRE BRE community. The last year was very successful, allowing us to purchase new outdoor benches and picnic tables to enhance the school outdoor areas and hire a landscaping company to maintain the front garden area. We always need more help with events and would love to see new faces this year! Please consider attending one or more of our meetings, volunteering at an event, and/or sharing ideas on how to improve our efforts.
