You've got questions. We've got answers.

How can I volunteer?

Brooks Museums Magnet Elementary School PTA uses Givebacks to manage all volunteer opportunities.

Your service as a volunteer not only helps to achieve our goals, it also sets an example of service for others to follow. When your children see you involved at the school, it communicates to them that school — and in a larger sense, their education — are important to you.

You must be a WCPSS-approved volunteer to help in any WCPSS school.

The WCPSS volunteer approval process runs from July 1 – October 31 each year. You must complete either a new volunteer application or update your approval each year on a WCPSS computer at school during school hours.

How can I stay up-to-date?

Stay up to date with the PTA through the Brooks PTA Givebacks. Please visit our Givebacks Join Site to create or update your account. By signing up, you'll receive the PTA weekly newsletter, which is your best way to find out what all is going on in and around Brooks!

If you have questions about Givebacks, please email us.

You can also download the Memberhub app for your iPhone or Android device.
