Parent Teacher Association
The Parent Teacher Associate is the parent organization at Edward H. Bryan School. The goal of the PTA is to provide effective communication and support to the school community. The organization strives to enrich and enhance the educational programs for the students. The support from the PTA over the years has included purchasing chromebooks, makerspace carts, as well as sponsoring various assemblies throughout the school year. In the fall they organize the Scholastic Book Fair that promotes learning and reading throughout our school. The PTA also organizes our school lunch program, Pizza Fridays, and Ice Cream Wednesday. We always welcome new volunteers and it is a wonderful way to become involved in the school community.
Bryan Korean Parents Association
The KPA was founded as a way for parents to communicate and disseminate information amongst themselves as well as the school. The KPA works in collaboration with the PTA to fundraise for the school and participate in various events.
Cresskill Education Foundation
The Cresskill Education Foundation's (CEF) main mission is to provide funds to the four Cresskill Public Schools, in order to expand academic, artistic, and cultural enrichment opportunities for our students, through programs, projects, and tools which could not otherwise be funded through the regular school budget.
The CEF exists as a broad based, non-profit community organization. Initially incorporated in September 1990, the CEF is perhaps best known for its annual Concert for the Arts and sponsorship of the 4th and 5th grade theatrical/musical productions (Cresskill Elementary Theatre Experience CETE). Certificates of Appreciation, another fundraiser, provide a cost-effective way to recognize teachers while supporting the schools. Our newest fundraising event, Bark for Education held in May, is fun for the whole community. Participants can enter their dogs for fun contests such as "waggiest tail, biggest smile, best costume, best tricks, and more." Other fundraisers have included 5K runs, the M.U.S.E. Concerts with David Broza in 1992 and 1998, The Cresskill Earthfest, and the Everything under the Sun Bazaar.
Through its fundraisers, the CEF has raised in excess of $500,000 to support programs and provide materials in each of the four Cresskill schools, primarily through grants requested by Cresskill faculty. A few highlights include: upgrades to the sound systems at the schools, acoustic pianos, reading readiness materials and anti-bullying materials, weather stations at the elementary schools, Smartboards and computers for all the schools, a broadcast studio, robotics materials and band uniforms for the high school.
In the future, the CEF aspires to grow and adapt to meet the changing needs of the Cresskill education system, helping it maintain its place as one of the finest in the state. The CEF wishes to thank everyone for their support and looks forward to your continued support in future years.
