Welcome to the Piney Branch Elementary School PTA.

Here's why it's important to join us.



The Piney Branch Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PBES PTA) seeks to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We work with parents and other caregivers, students, staff, teachers and administrators to improve the educational experience of our children, to celebrate community and diversity, and to recognize the dedicated work of the professionals and volunteers who make it all happen. We are committed to developing an inclusive and culturally-responsive community in our schools through discussion, collaboration, action, and education.


Now more than ever, the PTA’s role as a communication hub is vital. Please sign up for a free membership and/or our listserv to receive important school and community updates and to connect socially with others in the school community. Please refer to our “Piney Branch PTA Updates” pop-out section on this page for news and events, and above all, to stay informed and engaged.


We are committed to providing all Piney Branch families with updated information and access to resources online and locally in our Takoma Park community to assist with any hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Click the “COVID-19 Quick Links” option on the drop-down menu above to view resources for things like food support and at-home learning. Please contact us at pbes.pta@gmail.com with any additional resources, questions, or concerns and please keep yourself and your family safe during this unprecedented time.

What is the Readathon?

Our annual Readathon provides an opportunity for students and their families to build literacy skills and support PBES PTA at the same time! In March 2022, participating students read, count their minutes, and encourage adults to pledge money based on their participation.

The PTA needs Readathon donations to provide classroom/playground supplies, movement equipment, field trips, assemblies, staff appreciation, and more! Please encourage family & friends to donate!
