Welcome to the Piney Branch Elementary School PTA.

The PTA is a vital part of our school's community. We work with parents, 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.


The PTA is a resource center, information hub, and a gathering place for the entire PBES community. Please return frequently for news and events, and above all, to say informed and engaged.


The executive board has been working hard all summer and is excited to debut a new website and secure membership system that will help us recruit more volunteers, build a meaningful student directory, online store, and donation center. But we need your help.


We are excited to announce that we will be using Membership Toolkit for our Directory, Online Sales, Volunteer Sign Ups and Communications starting with the 2019-2020 school year.  Once you create a Membership Toolkit Account, you will have access to upcoming calendar events, make purchases, sign up to volunteer and much, much more.  This website will be a centralized hub for information that we hope you return to throughout the year.


Please Register with Membership Toolkit and Join the PTA today. 



Why Register?

Our PTA subscribes to Membership Toolkit - an online service that makes it easier for all of us to work together. Please register for free - then join the PTA for the current school year for $15! As always, volunteering and meetings are TOTALLY optional. But we invite you to do both, and hope you will!

Piney Branch Elementary School Counselors Need Snack Donations

The counselors have been busy preparing for the new year, and could use donations of a few select snack types. With their space and storage availability in mind, these are all things that they have found work well with small groups, are fairly universally enjoyed, and are shelf stable.
Single serving snack donations of:



Cheeze Its


Granola bars (Chewy or Nature Valley, with nuts is fine)

If you are able to bring by any of these items by the school front office- or have them shipped directly- at any time throughout the year, it would be greatly appreciated by our wonderful counselors.
If shipping directly to the school, please send to Piney Branch Elementary, c/o Amanda Ross & Leah Walker.
Piney address is: 7510 Maple Ave, Takoma Park, MD 20912
Thank you all for your generosity! If you have any questions at all, let me know.
Thank you!
