OBCE Bulldogs OBCMS FalconsWelcome to the Old Brooklyn Community Schools (OBCS) Parent-Teacher Team (PTT) Website


The OBCS-PTT Enrichment Committee worked tirelessly to bring the vibrant, positive energy our students feel everyday inside of OBCS to the outside! Our newly installed murals are an example of true neighborhood collaboration and would not not have been possible without the help of a grant awarded through Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, support of the Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation, and a successful 2017-18 OBCS-PTT Walk-A-Thon fundraiser.

Tara McNutt, our fantastic Middle School Art Teacher, designed the murals and led a crew of volunteer painters to bring the designs to life! OBCS is lucky to have such talented, dedicated, and enthusiastic staff members to help with projects such as these murals. A special thank you is extended to Clare Martin, OBCS-PTT Enrichment Committee Chair, for coordinating all efforts regarding the creation and installation of our new murals. Thank you to Cherie Kaiser, our amazing Prinicpal, for supporting and encouraging this project!


As parents we know how important it is to support our children. The best way we can do this at OBCS is by working together with the teachers, staff and other parents to give our children the best advantages possible. Take a look around and see how you too can make a difference at OBCS!

Parent – parents, grandparents, guardians

Teacher – classroom teachers, specials teachers, Title 1 teachers

Team – working together!

The OBCS PTT is an organization founded by parents to provide OBCS students with fun, safe, family-friendly activities and events outside of the classroom. We are able to plan these activities and events because of the generosity of the Parents and Teachers who provide their time and talents to OBCS. We also use funds from our in-school fundraisers to support the PTT.

We are looking for volunteers: to brainstorm ideas for activities and fundraising, to research new ideas, to help plan activities, to help with fundraising, to help make copies, and to help with set-up & clean-up at events. Whether you have 1 hour per week or 1 hour for the year (or somewhere in between), we’d love to have your help! NOTE: All volunteers at OBCS must complete a BCI background check every 3 years. Call the Constellation Schools main office at (216) 712-7600 to schedule an appointment.

If you are interested in volunteering, download our volunteer form and send it back to the school office marked "PTT."

Many hands make light work: the more people who are involved the more we can do!
