WEEKLY UPDATES & RESOURCES
To all of the volunteers and community that made this year happen, thank you! You planned events, kept meeting minutes, sent blasts, designed the website, kept the marquis updated, lit up the path to our school, kept the fish tank cleaned, organized work days, kept your children's classrooms stocked with supplies, organized the PTA closet, and so much more. You gave your time, your resources, and your money to help the children at Briarlake Elementary School, and we are so thankful for you. Can't wait to see what you do next year! - Sara Lee & Jenny Buigut

TACKLING FOOD INSECURITY IN THE LAKESIDE CLUSTER
With school closed and the Covid-19 pandemic, families are more worried than ever about where their next meal will come from. We have started raising funds to provide grocery store gift cards to families in need. In just under two weeks, we have raised over $11,000 thanks to the generosity of this community.
To request meal assistance, please go to this website: https://form.jotform.com/201196195067054
