MISSION STATEMENT

The objective of the Brown PTO shall be to create a closer relationship between home and school, to enhance the learning environment, to provide and maintain an open network of communications between the school and community, and to foster parent/guardian involvement in the educational process. Brown PTO accomplishes this goal by encouraging parent involvement in the school, enhancing student life through donations to cultural arts that augment educational experiences, and cultivating community spirit within the school.

PTO MEMBERSHIP DONATIONS

PTO Membership dues (suggested) are $30 per student or $40 per family. (Add link to PayPal)

The Brown School PTO Executive Board decided over the past few years to forego major fundraising campaigns in favor of slightly higher parent contributions. We would like to continue this tradition, but can only do so with your support. PTO membership donations are an essential funding source for PTO initiatives.

Every year the PTO makes valuable contributions to the school in the following areas:

•Cultural Arts ($3200)

•Grade Level Field Trips ($3000)

•6th Grade Celebration and T-shirts ($1600)

•5th Grade Poetry Contest ($200)

•Staff Appreciation: Teachers, Paras, Custodians, Bus Drivers ($1800)
