Holiday Boutique 

 From December 6-13,  2018 look for the Brushy Creek Holiday Boutique. We have a great selection of affordable gifts for the children to purchase for their family and friends for the holidays. Seeing how much love and care they put into choosing gifts gets everyone into the holiday spirit!

Spirit Nights

Once a month the PTA hosts spirit nights at local restaurants or entertainment venues to help raise funds for Brushy Creek.  Each of these establishments donates a percentage of the proceeds back to our school.  It is a great, fun way for families to help support the PTA and Brushy Creek throughout the year.

Here are a list of upcoming Spirit Nights:

Boxtops for Education is another program that everyone can help with!  Each label earns our schools $0.10.  Our school consistently earns top dollar sosend your labels in!  

What do we do with all the money we raise? It all goes to help your children learn. Some of the things we've purchased recently include playground equipment, library books, Chromebooks and Promethean Boards. We also have a PTA grant program, which our teachers have used to purchase such "extras" as cursive writing workbooks, books for classroom libraries, math flashcards and games, iPads and computer "mice" for the laptop lab. The PTA also pays for the software and software licenses for both computer labs, supplies for the science lab, and much, much more! Thank you for helping to continue making Brushy Creek a GREAT place for learning!
