Parent and PTSO

Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO)

Brooklyn Prospect Charter School welcomes and invites all parents, guardians and families of our students to join the BPCS Parent Teacher Student Organization ("PTSO"). 

Parents/guardians play a vital role in the life of our school community and parent/guardian involvement. The PTSO is looking to recruit candidates who reflect the wonderful diversity of our student body, are creative thinkers, teachers and administration, and, lastly, have fundraising, leadership, and/or organizational experience, either as a volunteer or through work.

Looking for Summer Work for Enrolled Students? Link here!


Interested in volunteering? Sign up today!
The first meeting of the 2014-15 school year will take place on September 10, 2014 at 7pm in the Commons.
