Dear Heath parents and caregivers,
Please consider a donation to the Heath PTO’s Annual Appeal. Right now, only a quarter of Heath families have contributed to the appeal.
The appeal is the primary fundraising effort of the Heath PTO. We rely on your generous support to make investments -- on average more than $200 per student -- that promote a strong educational environment and a connected community.
Funds are used annually to
- subsidize field trips so that all children can participate;
- acquire and update technology for students;
- to provide stipends and grants to teachers; and
- much more!
Without a successful annual appeal, many of these programs will be in jeopardy.
This year, our goal is to have every Heath family participate, whether you give $5 or $5,000. Your donation is an important gesture of support for our school. We hope you will make a donation that is significant to you.
You can make your fully tax-deductable gift by clicking on the link to the right or by responding to our letter in your mailbox.

Brookline should value the work of its educators
Brookline teachers, paraprofessionals and specialists have been working without a contract since the start of school this September.
Their last three-year contract expired at the end of August 2014, but educators agreed to an interim deal to cover the 2014-2015 school year, so that the town could focus on last May’s override.
While the town and the Brookline Educators Association have been talking, those negotiations have gone nowhere. Quite rightly, the union has found proposals made by the town to be unacceptable.
Hello! My name is Aria Wong and I am a senior at Brookline High School and director of the Brookline Tutor Mentor Program. BTMP connects high school students to middle school students for tutoring and mentorship. We are funded by a grant from the Brookline Community Foundation and operate with the generosity and support of the Brookline Teen Center.
BTMP believes that middle school students can benefit both academically and socially from the mentorship of a high school student. Therefore, BTMP serves both those struggling academically and in need of one-on-one help, as well as those who would benefit from a strong role model. We find that many 7th and 8th graders find it helpful to talk to a high school student to ease their anxiety over the transition to high school. BTMP also accommodates middle school students with anxiety and depression, who can confide in the friendship of an older student. You can learn more at www.brooklinetm.tk.
If you have an 8th grader, please add some dates to your calendar:
- February 3rd @ Brookline High School - Curriculum Night, Part One
- Brookline High School - Curriculum Night, Part Two @
- Brookline High School - “Life at BHS” Night @
- Brookline High School - “Athletics at Brookline High” Night @
We will also have parents evening at Heath late-February or early-March to answer any lingering questions you may have after all of these valuable sessions.
