HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Make a donation to the Annual Appeal
The Burbank PTA is an essential partner to the Burbank School, and your contribution directly helps enrich your child’s school experience.
We don’t ask kids and parents to become salespeople. Our “ask once” annual appeal is effective and saves you time. We ask you to contribute whatever you’re comfortable giving, and if you need a number, we suggest $125 PER CURRENT BURBANK CHILD.
Here are some examples of how the Burbank PTA supports the Burbank community:
Teacher Grants ✦ SMART Boards ✦ Classroom Supplies ✦ Grade-level Enrichment Activities ✦ “Mathbrary” for Grade 2 ✦ Colonial Day for Grade 3 ✦ Kindergarten Field Trips ✦ Online Enrichment Subscriptions for Grades K-4 ✦ Community-Building Events ✦ School Library and Classroom Library Support ✦ Teacher Professional Development
Without the generosity of Burbank families, none of the PTA’s work would be possible. The funds raised and spent by the PTA have a significant impact on your child’s daily school experience. Every bit helps, so please join us and give what you can.

Volunteer! Join a committee or help at a PTA sponsored event
The Burbank Parent Teacher Association has two goals in mind when we plan events and activities. The first is to enrich the lives of Burbank students. The second goal is to help all families feel welcome, to feel connected to the school and to each other. Volunteering at school events helps parents build ties to other families and builds strong communities, while at the same time reinforcing the message to their children that school is valuable and important.
Throughout the school year, there are many ways for parents to volunteer at PTA-sponsored events, and volunteer opportunities are available for all levels of time commitment; during the school day or on evenings or weekends; and whether you want to take charge of organizing or just be handed a job to do.
Fill out our Volunteer Interest Survey to let us know how you want to help!
Attend a PTA Meeting!
PTA meetings are held bi-monthly in September, November, January, March and May, on a Monday evening. Each meeting has a guest speaker or specific topic of discussion. This is a great opportunity to learn what is going on around school, get acquainted with other parents, and learn how you might like to become more involved. Please join us!
If you can’t attend a meeting, feel free to e-mail or call the PTA Co-Presidents with your thoughts or questions.
Support the Burbank Book Fair!
An annual tradition, the Book Fair takes place in early December. With a fabulous selection of new books, a magic show, crafts, and a bake sale, The Book Fair is a great event that both parents and kids really enjoy. Bring your holiday shopping list and buy some books for your loved ones. Books can also be donated to teachers’ classrooms through the teacher wish lists, and to the school library. A portion of the total book sales benefits the Burbank PTA, which uses the money to support our programs. The Book Fair is an event not to be missed! Come help us make it a success!
Buy Burbank Spirit Wear!
With a fresh new logo and range of products, Burbank Spirit Wear is a fabulous way to show your school spirit! Burbank attire also makes a nice holiday or year-end gift for your child. Every purchase helps support programs sponsored by the PTA. More information and order forms will be sent to all families.
Save Box Tops for Education!
Earn cash for Burbank just by buying groceries. Clip and save “Box Tops For Education” and send them to school with your child. They add up quickly and the money earned helps support the PTA. Check out the entire program at www.boxtopsforeducation.com.
Participate in Special Events!
The PTA will host a special shopping event at Wilson’s Farm in Lexington with proceeds from your purchases going directly to the Burbank PTA. Stay tuned for more information in the PTA newsletter as the date approaches.
Build Our Community!
Attend social events at Burbank. Come have fun, make new friends, and get connected with other Burbank Families. Walk to school! Walking is a great way to meet Burbank families in your neighborhood. Become part of the community. Join us!
