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.

The Dr. Robert H Brown School PTO is a non-profit organization whose membership is open to all faculty and parents or legal guardians of students who attend Brown School. PTO notifications are sent via email with Brown School e-notify.

PTO Membership Donations

PTO Membership dues (suggested) are $45 per family.  Donations

One of the ways to support Brown PTO is with annual dues.  These contributions help to offset the parent cost of field trips, support teacher appreciation throughout the year, help fund field day costs, provide end of year celebrations like the ice cream truck visits, and so much more!  Every PTO dues donation of $45 or  more will receive a complimentary 23/24 Yearbook!  We want to make this year memorable for all of our students!   Follow this link to pay with credit card or Venmo! As always, any amount is helpful to us. (We also accept cash or checks payable to Brown PTO sent into the Brown main office.)

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

  • Cultural Arts 
  • Grade Level Field Trips 
  • End of Year Celebrations 
  • 5th Grade Poetry Contest
  • Staff Appreciation: Teachers, Paras, Custodians, Bus Drivers
