East Brook PTO Board

Our PTO is made up of parents and teachers working together to improve the educational experience of students.  Want to learn more about the PTO and how to get involved, or have questions, contact one of our board members or email the PTO at eastbrookpto@parkridge.k12.nj.us



Emma Cassella



I have two children, Daniel (7) who is in second grade and Olivia (4) who'll join East Brook in 2017.  I am a Teacher's Aide at Hillsdale United. I am addicted to s'mores, striped clothes  and paper crafts.  This is my second year as co-president.  The best thing about being involved in the PTO is all the great people I've met and being able to put my paper crafts obsession to good use!!





Lauren Capilli



I have two children, Giana who is in first grade and Matthew who will become an East Brook Owl in 2017.  I teach first grade in Englewood.  I love cooking (but not for my children), pinterest (just to look at not to do), and spending time at the beach. I’m really excited about being part of the PTO and continuing to work with awesome people doing great things for our community (and putting my pinterest obsession to good use). 





Sharon Browne



I have one son, Cristian who is in 1st grade.  I work in finance for Ernst & Young. This is my first year as treasurer and a member of the PTO.  I'm looking forward to working with these lovely ladies in the upcoming year!

Tara Mackay-Zeman

VP of Cultural Affairs


I am the proud parent of three wonderful children!  My oldest will be finishing EB this year (6th grade), my middle guy is in 2nd and my youngest will be entering Kindergarten in the fall.
This is my first year on the Board, where I have had the pleasure of researching and scheduling assemblies for the students throughout the school year.  It's wonderful to see the kids enthusiastic reactions to all of the different guests the PTO has sponsored!  I'm always open to suggestions on future events or feedback from your kids on past performances.
