The Brookline High School (BHS) PTO is proud of the work they have done this year to support educators, staff, students, and families - it is work that could not have happened without the partnership and effort of all of the BHS community and the members of the PTO. Now that spring is in bloom, the BHS PTO is beginning to anticipate their work for the year to come. They will have several vacant positions next year on our Executive Board as current board members’ children graduate, and they hope you’ll consider volunteering to fill one of them!
The descriptions of the open positions are included in the recruitment letter below. Serving on the BHS PTO Executive Board is a nice way to get to know more families in the high school community, and to include your voice in decision making about grant allocation and other methods of supporting BHS. Please consider joining! Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to let them know you’re interested. Thank you!

Susan Park (RLA PTO president) is asking for interested folks to complete a survey of the community's experience with Asian hate crimes in Brookline. The results will go back to the district. The survey can be completed by one or more family members. The language used is broad and extends to experiences beyond those of the Asian American community, so all are encouraged to participate.
To find out more and act to stop hate against Asian American Pacific Islander communities check out the Stop AAPI Hate website and other resources provided by the Brookline Asian American Family Network.
