About the BPC
The purpose of the BPC is to enrich our Brockton parent community by engaging and connecting our parents (and families) through volunteering and social events.
We are “fun”raisers and “friend”raisers first and foremost. Any funds raised through our events support BPC activities and events such as the Back to School BBQ, Staff Appreciation gifts & lunches, Book Fairs, Grandparent’s Tea, PYP Winter Dance, and the BPC BELIEVE Scholarship. The BPC also participates in community events such as the Lynn Valley Parade of Trees and Lynn Valley Days.
Our goal is 100% volunteer participation from the Brockton Community.
If you are looking for a way to get more involved with the school, we will find an opportunity that suits your schedule and area of interest. Some of our activities include: organizing hot lunch, acting as class reps, decorating for holidays, supporting the planning and execution of community events such as the Welcome Back BBQ and Brockton Gala, holding book fairs, organizing grandparent’s tea, and organizing staff appreciation gifts.
Supported by an amazing community of caring, talented parents, our children sincerely benefit from the time and knowledge of our volunteers.
We welcome, encourage, and need new volunteers! Watch for opportunities in the weekly BPC newsletter.
For more information on how you can get involved with the BPC, contact your class rep or the BPC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
