At Brookside Elementary, the PTO is organized for the purpose of supporting the education of our students by fostering relationships between the school, parents and faculty.

2017 - 2018 PTO Dues Drive IS ON!!!

It's time to kick off our MOST IMPORTANT fundraiser of the year! PTO and classroom dues support our entire calendar of family fun and educational enriching programming such as:

Assemblies and Author Visits

Field Trip buses

Class Parties

Teacher Appreciation


Theater Week

Field Day and SO MUCH MORE!!!

Log on to our school store by clicking the Pay Your Dues Quicklink to the left of your screen and pay your PTO and classroom dues for each Brookside child in your family today! Paying by credit card is a breeze and we also accept checks. If paying by check please select the "Pay By Check" option to print an invoice with your child's name(s), include it with check payable to Brookside Elementary PTO and mail to:

Brookside Elementary School

20 Lake Drive

Westwood, NJ 07675

Attn: PTO Dues

**DON'T FORGET, you must be a dues-paying member to apply for the Class Parent Lottery happening later this month after classroom assignments go out. So if you're thinking of being a Class Parent, take this important first step and get on the fast track!!

Helpful Tips for paying your PTO Dues online:

1. PTO Membership Dues are a family membership. One $15 PTO Membership fee applies to your whole family for the year.

2. Classroom Dues are paid PER CHILD/CLASSROOM. Think of it as "chipping in" $10 for classroom parties and activities for each child in each of their classrooms for the year. When putting Classroom Dues in your cart, select the first child in your family from the drop down menu, place item in your cart and repeat the process for each child in your family (from the drop down menu).

3. If you have children coming to Brookside for the first time, i.e. younger siblings starting Kindergarten in the fall, please ADD ALL NEW CHILDREN to your account first so that they appear in your drop down menu before you pay Classroom Dues.

email us at or contact our Vice President Jen Hivry at with any questions regarding dues.

We thank you so much for your continued support of the PTO and all we do to help make the Brookside experience the best it can be.
