The Brooklyn Latin School Parent Association
Dear TBLS Parents and Guardians,
Don't miss tonight's third TBLS PA Parents' Night Out. TBLS parents and guardians, we’d love to share ideas for helping our kids stay organized and other challenges of parenting teens in this crazy time. Come with any challenges you are facing, questions you have, tips you’d like to share. We want to hear them, learn from each other, and get to know others in the TBLS parent community! Please join us tonight, Thursday, December 3 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. via Zoom for a warm, welcoming informal discussion of the challenges of parenting our TBLS students. Share your concerns, ask questions of other parents, or just listen! Please register here to join. All TBLS parents and guardians are welcome and encouraged to join.
Thank you to all of those who have donated to the TBLS PA this year, including on Giving Tuesday! If you haven't donated yet, please consider donating what you can to help the school. Recommended donation amounts are $125 or $750, but all amounts are welcome and any amount helps the PA to support The Brooklyn Latin School and ensure that it can continue to provide the world-class education our students are so fortunate to receive. More information on how to donate is available here.
