Donated By:

Description: We are working to raise funds to train a service dog for three-year-old Elijah Allen of Brooklin. He has cerebral palsy, auditory and sensory processing disorder and has left hemianopsia (left field blindness).

A service dog will help prevent him from running into things on his blind side, provide mobility support on uneven ground, prevent him from bolting in busy places, keep him safely within the boundaries of our home, be trained to search & rescue in the event of him wandering away, apply deep pressure to help with sensory processing and anxiety. The dog is 4 1/2 months old. She is an English Golden Retriever and was specifically bred to be a service animal. She has begun her training and will continue with local trainer, Whitney Thurston, of Salty Dogs Obedience & Adventure in Blue Hill. When she reaches a certain point she will need to go to Pennsylvania to finish her training with Paws Training Center, and the estimated cost for this is $14,000. I have been making and selling donuts as an ongoing weekly fundraiser which so far has paid for the local training and other costs related to having a service dog. More information can be found on a Facebook page that was created for Elijah when he was 5 weeks old. The name of the page is “Prayers for Elijah Lazarus”

Hello PTF folks!
I hope your school year is going great thus far.

Please make sure you come and join us for our annual Back To School BBQ at school on Thursday, September 14th starting at 5:00. It’s a great way to reconvene after the summer break and introduce ourselves to new parents and staff members at the school. The PTF will provide drinks, chips and other munchies as well as sausages, hot dogs and hamburgers for the grill. We are asking everyone to please bring a nut-free side dish, salad or dessert to share. This event is also a great way to sign up new PTF members to our group so please ask around at school to search out those new parents, guardians and community members at our school and make sure you invite them!

Please keep in mind that the soccer team is rather small this year and they could use some cheering on if you’d like to attend their games. The next home game will be on Wednesday starting at 4:00 at the Brooklin School against Blue Hill. The game schedule can be found on the Brooklin School’s website under “programs” and “athletics”.

Below you will find the minutes from our latest meeting. We have decided that future PTF meetings will be held on the 4th Tuesday of the month alternately at 6:30 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 26th at 6:30 p.m.

See you all at the BBQ,
Allison




PTF meeting Minutes

Thursday, September 7, 2017

 

 

Present: Allison Watters, Molly Blake, Brittney Carter, Paige Morse, David Bowden, Julia Baird, Jil Blake, Eden Cowart

 

Allison Watters proposes approval of minutes from August 2017; minutes approved.

 

Thank You Card-

Jil Blake, Julia Baird, and David Bowden sent a thank you card for our support with the funding of sporting equipment.

 

Requests for Funding:

David Bowden would like to be reimbursed for purchasing a new soccer net, 5 game balls, and 8 practice balls. Approved $500.

 

Julia Baird would like to get new goalie gloves for $25 and a new first aid kit for $45. Julia sent Allison Watters links for purchasing them on Amazon. Allison is going to place the order with the PTF card. Approved $35 and $45.

 

Julie Wilson is requesting $41 for four Slim Doodle Pro devices and a Dressing Frame for $150 for the Pre-K room. Approved $41 and $150.

 

Julia Baird is requesting $177 to reimburse her for items she purchased for her classroom. Her budget this year was made by a previous teacher and does not properly reflect the needs of her classroom. Approved $177. Julia will give her receipts to Jillian for reimbursement.

 

Julie Wilson is requesting $450 to have a washing station built in the classroom. There are now 18 students in the classroom with only one small sink. Since Julie wasn’t at the meeting we have asked Jil Blake to consult with Julie to come up with a firm price. Then Jil will see if it can be made with school budget money. If there is not enough money, then Julie may bring it back to the PTF. Pending.

 

Side note: Paige Morse asked Jil Blake to tell teachers and staff to first put classroom need requests to Jil, and if there is not enough funding in the budget, then bring it to the PTF.

 

Side note: David Bowden is going to ask 2nd and 3rd Graders to help with being ball girls and boys during games.

 

PTF projects/events:

Teacher appreciation week-

The breakfast went well and so did giving the teachers small bouquets.

 

Brooklin CAN-

Should we send out our survey with the Strategic Planning Committee's survey on September 15- October 16? We decided that the Committee's survey is too important and we don't want to bombard people. We will put ours on the website and send out an email at the beginning of October. Molly, Brittney and Ava Sealander will work to finalize and add examples to our CAN survey.

 

Back to School BBQ-

We purchased the items for the goodie bags- water bottles, meat sticks, erasers, tissues, hand sanitizer, lolipops, and Vitamin C powder.

 

Bianco Provisions is going to deliver the sausages, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Allison Watters is coordinating with them. Molly is going to check on the propane and table clothes. Allison Watters is going to purchase the buns, paper supplies, chips, and frozen lemonade. Jeff is going to make the incentive cupcakes for new PTF members. Parents should come by after school on Thursday if they are able to help set-up. Eden Cowart is going to put names on the water bottles.

 

Winter Wear Swap-

On October 13, during the parent teacher conferences, there will be gently worn winter clothes that parents would like to part with set up on tables in the foyer. Parents will be asked to bring in extra/unneeded winter wear during the week and we will sort them on October 12 after school. All unclaimed clothes after the swap will be given to the Girl Scouts to be donated where needed. Molly is the point person for the swap and will put a notice in the newsletter and on Facebook to get the word out.

 

Honor Roll Gifts/Certificates-

The PTF discussed the possibility of each month, each teacher choosing a VIP from their class who was an exceptional citizen. These students will be recognized in front of the whole school during Community Meetings and will also be given a small party/gift. Each month the reward will be different. PTF wants to help in any way possible, including purchasing the rewards. Jil will discuss this with teachers and develop the idea further.

 

Parent Directory-

Brittney Carter will draft a form and send it out for approval. The form will be put on the website, emailed to parents, and sent home with kids. We may need to put reminders in the newsletter a few times.

 

Mission Statement-

Molly feels it is vague and does not reflect all that the PTF does. We brainstormed some better wording and Molly is going to distill some of our ideas and send it out for us to work on.

 

New day for meetings

PTF meetings will now be the 4th Tuesday alternating between 3:15pm and 6:30pm. Allison will put something in the newsletter to reflect this change.

 

Next meeting will be on September 26th at 6:30pm.

 

Meeting adjourned at 5:10pm

Jil Blake          -Going to talk to Julie Wilson about the washing station

PTF news this week

posted May 17, 2017, 7:29 AM by Molly Blake   [ updated May 17, 2017, 7:35 AM ]



Thank you to Allison Watters, Molly Blake, Jillian Tripp and Jeff and Maribeth Carson for working hard to let the teachers and staff know they are very well appreciated during this year's Teacher Appreciation Week.


This Friday is another round of Dutch Soccer camp in Blue Hill. If you would like your child to participate please download a form here and bring it to the office with a check made out to Dutch Soccer.  The PTF will cover half of the tuition. http://www.brooklinschool.org/ptf/dutchsoccer


June 2nd is the Brooklin School 5k Fun Run. It starts at the school at 12:30 and the kids run or walk down to WoodenBoat and back. We are looking for parents to help pass out water and cheer! If you have a few minutes please come by the school and bring some pom poms. Encouragement really helps them get up those hills!  https://www.facebook.com/events/471644656513968/


After the fun run on Friday, June 2nd, we are going to be setting up for the Yard Sale that takes place in the gym on Saturday morning. We are looking for the community to drop off yard sale items after 3:00 on Friday. https://www.facebook.com/events/132257293968803/


On Saturday, June 3rd come and do some shopping at the yard sale and also play some tennis! The PTF is sponsoring a free tennis workshop for EVERYONE!  More details on this workshop are in the works. It will take place at the school on the 3rd from 9:30 to 11:30 with Bob Christie and Val Chamberlain.


On June 9th, PTF is having a Silent Auction and Dance at Central Hall. https://www.facebook.com/events/274873476275809/

This is our biggest fundraising event of the year. It is also super fun. The SoulBenders are playing upstairs and are not to be missed. Downstairs is a fantastic silent auction. Many parents, teachers and local businesses have donated their skills or items to be auctioned. You can take a look at some of the things we have so far here.

https://www.facebook.com/pg/brooklinptf/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1283602985022552

Would you like to help up set-up, break down, search for items or donate something? We need everyone's help for this.


If you are wondering where the PTF money goes last couple months of school are a great example:


  • The PTF provided great treats to teachers this week for Teacher's Appreciation Week.

  • Sponsored a clean-up day at the school

  • Provided some funding to the eighth graders who are off on their class trip to Boston this week

  • Provided funding for Kim Ridley and Rebekah Raye's whole school workshop last week  https://www.facebook.com/kim.ridley.58/posts/1550113891665682

  • Provided funding for Katy Hellman who is here with students working on an art installation now.

  • Paying half tuition for Dutch soccer

  • Organizing and funding a school/community tennis clinic.

  • Funded a refillable snack pantry for after school clubs and sports at the school

  • Funded Pizza party for the students working on the yearbook.

  • Provided some funding for a mobile jewelry workshop to be used with our art teacher, Sarah Doremus


Phhhewww!  That is a lot of stuff and we have an amazing, supportive community and PTF to thank for that but we are ALWAYS looking for a hand so please get in touch. brooklinschoolptf@gmail.com

posted May 5, 2017, 8:31 AM by Molly Blake   [ updated May 5, 2017, 8:34 AM ]

Here are the minutes from last night’s PTF meeting. There are a few dates to make sure you have on your calendar for this coming spring:

CLEAN UP DAY will be held on SATURDAY, MAY 6TH (with a rain date for Sunday, May 7th). This is an event where we all pitch in for a morning tidying up the school grounds. PTF will provide lunch.

The PTF YARD SALE will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 3rd. We will be asking for your donations of unneeded treasures as well as your help setting and cleaning up after the event as June approaches.

The SILENT AUCTION and DANCE with local soul band, The Soulbenders will happen on Friday, June 9th at the Central Hall in South Blue Hill. We would love any items of value that we could auction for the event to be donated in the next several months.

Thanks in advance for your help with these events!

Allison



Brooklin School PTF Meeting Minutes from March 7, 2017
written by Allison Watters

In attendance: Allison Watters, Robyn Sealander, Jillian Tripp, Julie Wilson, Molly Blake, Halina Nawrot, Maribeth Carson

  • February’s minutes were approved.

  • Funding Request: We received a request from Vicki Hull for a full-day all-school workshop with local artist and author Rebecca Raye and Kim Ridley based on their new book, “The Secret Bay”. The workshop was approved for $1600. Other area volunteers will be brought in to offer expertise as well.

  • Soup/Chowder/Chili Challenge: the event went well and brought in $75. There seemed to be as many people (if not more) than last year but not as much soup. Next year we plan to not charge people who brought a soup, get more small tasting bowls, make a large soup in case there isn’t enough food, and bring more ladles. The ballot system worked well. We also plan on not having the event the weekend after school break because of a conflict with GSA basketball playoffs. We will also remember to advertise at Parker Ridge next year and have Louanne text parents a reminder the day of the event.

  • Treasurer’s Report: Jillian gave a report and that led to a discussion of how money moves from the PTF to the school. It was suggested that the PTF should reach out to the teachers to let them know how much money we have that we want them to spend on projects. We want them to think BIG and think outside the box when asking for funding. Maybe the PTF could make a presentation with lunch at a teacher workshop day?

  • Dutch Soccer Interlude/Sports Discussion: There was a discussion as to how we could best tailor our sports program to our school’s population in the future. In the short term there will likely be both track and little league offered this coming spring.

  • Clean Up Day was scheduled for Saturday, May 6th with a rain date for Sunday, May 7th.

  • Val Chamberlain, the grandparent of a Brooklin School preschooler would like to offer a tennis clinic for one day this spring. The PTF would like to encourage him to perhaps hold a weekend-long event or even a week-long tennis camp in the summer. Allison will invite him to attend a future meeting.

  • Yard Sale: Robyn Sealander and Brittney Carter will head up this year’s sale which will take place on Saturday, June 3rd. They were reminded to make sure and be picky about what they accept on drop off day and to find someone to take everything when the sale has concluded.

  • Silent Auction and Dance: The Central Hall in South Blue Hill has been secured and the band, the Soulbenders have been booked for the event which will take place on Friday, June 9th. Molly will begin organizing for donations to the auction.
  • 5K Fun Run: The PTF would like to continue the tradition of this event even though the teacher who usually organized the event is no longer at the school. Jillian and Molly will look at the route and Molly will talk to Healthy Peninsula about donating expertise and/or sponsorship. We tentatively scheduled the event for Friday, June 2nd.

  • Lego Club: Sharon Thoner and Brittney Carter are starting up Lego Club for younger students at the school this spring.

  • Summer Fundraising at ERR (Eggemoggin Reach Regatta): tabled until next meeting

  • Agenda Items for Tuesday, April 4th meeting: 5K Fun Run, Clean Up Day, Silent Auction, Tennis Clinic update, Fall Fundraising Run (perhaps during the “tall ships weekend”).

Soup Chili Chowder Challenge

posted Feb 17, 2017, 3:12 PM by Benjamin Moss   [ updated Feb 17, 2017, 3:20 PM ]

Please make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming PTF fundraiser Soup Chili Chowder Challenge taking place on Saturday, March 4th beginning at 5:30 in the school gym.

If you are so inclined whip up a tasty pot of your favorite soup, nourishing chowder or spicy chili and try to win one of three grand prizes.

We would also love to have any PTF members who are able to bring some side bread products (bread, bagels, breadsticks, cornbread - the sky’s the limit). We could also use some extension cords if you have a couple. Just make sure to label them with your name so we make sure to get them back to you.

Please let your friends and neighbors know about this event. It’s a great way to bring people into the school community and get together in this quiet and sometimes isolating time of year.

PTF Meeting

posted Feb 6, 2017, 11:10 AM by Benjamin Moss   [ updated Feb 7, 2017, 6:23 AM ]

There will be a PTF meeting on Wednesday, February 8th at the school library at 6:30 in the evening. There was a request for babysitters from a PTF parent and we have lined up two middle schoolers to hang out with your kids during the meeting so feel free to bring them along if it’s helpful.
