Welcome to a New School Year

On behalf of the Brooklyn Tech PTA, we would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning students and their parents and guardians.

Brooklyn Tech is a huge, and hugely diverse, community of people dedicated to bringing to life an extraordinary and inspired high school education for our children.   You – our children’s parents and guardians – comprise an essential component of this community.  By virtue of taking care of your Tech student, you are a TechPTA member.   We can’t wait for you to get involved and bring your energy, ideas, talents and contributions to the table.

An important part of the TechPTA is our series of meetings that are held monthly throughout the school year and are open to the entire parent-guardian community.  Our goal for these meetings is to give parents a window into the world our students inhabit at Tech through presentations on topics relating to academics, social dynamics, college prep, and more.   The meetings are the building blocks of an engaged parent community, and we hope you will get to know your fellow parents at, before, and after the TechPTA meetings.

Please take a moment and jot down in your calendar the dates of this year’s TechPTA meetings, which you will find on the sidebar on this page. We hope you will come to as many as possible.  Bookmark our TechPTA website and visit us often as we will continually update information throughout the school year.

We know that all of our families are busy with the demands of everyday life, but we also know that even a small contribution of your time and energy can significantly contribute to the PTA’s efforts to foster a vibrant and nurturing educational environment for our children, to assist the teachers and staff, and to sponsor and support enriching activities for our parent and guardian community.  When you engage with the TechPTA, the payoff in terms of enhancing your child’s educational experience is truly invaluable.

Don’t miss our first TechPTA meeting, to be held on Thursday, September 11 at 6:30 in the Brooklyn Tech Auditorium.  We look forward to meeting you and offering an array of volunteer opportunities. 

 

Sincerely,

Elissa Stein, PTA Co-President           Ilene Jaroslaw, PTA Co-President
