    Welcome from the PTSA at Council Rock!

    The PTSA brings together families and the wider school community by sponsoring and coordinating many events and activities that will take place throughout the school year. We organize and run School Pictures, the Council Rock Book Fair, Ice Cream Socials, Staff Appreciation Luncheon, and Hospitality events. We also coordinate parent volunteers for the CRPS library and art room. We organize various community service and donation events to benefit our school and the Brighton community. The Brighton Central PTSA is committed to strengthening the connection between schools and families and advocates for school safety, child health, equity, diversity, and inclusion for all families, among many other issues. We hope that you will join us in these efforts.
