Great Gatherings

What are Great Gatherings?

Great Gatherings are community-building activities that take place throughout the year.  They are hosted by both Briones PTA and Briones parents.  Activities can be for a family, child, or adults only, etc.

Where does the money go?

When you pay to participate in a Great Gathering, your money is donated directly to the Briones PTA.  In fact, Great Gatherings is the largest PTA fundraiser of the school year!  Last year, funds raised went to help pay for Junior Museum STEAM experiences, classroom supplies, library books, musical instruments, fulfilling teacher wish lists, supporting enrichment programs, hosting community building events like the Ice Cream Social, and much, much more.

How do I sign up?

Watch for the Great Gathering Brochure to arrive home in your child’s Friday Folder!  Browse the events, instructions, and legal disclaimers, and choose your favorites!
Then attend the Harvest Festival, have fun, and sign up!  Sign-ups start at 3:00 PM on the day of the Harvest Festival. Space is limited for many events, and sign-ups are first come, first served.
