Spirit Wear

Save the date! Our Spirit wear store will be open 8/16-8/27! Orders will ship to school in September and be sent home with students! Link to store to follow.

Sunshade Structure

The PTA is one step closer to getting one sun shade for each playground! After having to pause the process due to Covid, we were recently able to submit the required proposals and financial quotes to WCPSS. We have around $15,000 earmarked for this project, and with a grant from WCPSS, we hope to be able to purchase and have them installed soon. The goal is to have 2 sun shades on each playground, so with your support, we will continue to fundraise for the additional sun shades!

August Spirit Night

Our first spirit night at Brixx was very successful earning $294. August's spirit night will be at Jersey Mike's on Saturday August 21st. Jersey Mike's will donate 100% of purchases made by those that leave their receipts in a marked box by the register. 


Picket Fence

Our 4th graders showed their creativity during Pickett Fence Project workshop funded by Parkside Elementary PTA. Now fences are installed outside of our school, and it looks great. Thank you so much Angie Pope, Erin Simmons, Kara Stout, Deepti Bhanot, Denise Hatchell and Durga K Govindankutty to volunteer to install all the fences.

Box Tops

Box Tops is all digital this year. Parent just need to download the app on to their phone and scan (take pictures) of their receipts and the app does the rest of the work. Parents should make sure to use the "Credit" star in to write in their child's teacher's name (or names) and the top earning teacher at the end of the quarter (September 30th) will get a prize of their choice.
