New Parent Sponsors Needed
Welcome the Moms of the Class of 2021 
Do you remember being a new Brophy mom and receiving a welcoming call from your New Parent Sponsor asking whether you had any questions? Of course you had a million questions! Remember how helpful that New Parent Sponsor was with answers to everything from curriculum to carpools? Well, this is your chance to be a New Parent Sponsor for the upcoming school year.
 
It’s so easy! All you need to do is to make phone calls to the new families later in the summer, right before school starts. Please note that there is a particular need for Spanish-speaking moms. To sign up or to receive more information, please contact Diana Batoon-Aguirre/drdianabatoon@yahoo.com.
