Fundraising

 
The Littlebrook PTO is a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization so all contributions are tax deductible and may be eligible for corporate matching.
 
Your voluntary donation go directly towards your child's school experience.
 
The Littlebrook PTO spends over $100/student.  The recommended donation is $30/student, but any amount is appreciated and put to good use.
 
Your contributions help fund the following and more:
  • Residency Programs
  • Teacher Grants
  • Teacher Support Fund
  • Field Trips
  • Assemblies

Assemblies enhance students' educational experience and focus on arts and culture, science and nature, and character development.  Last year they included:

  • Willow Girl: Character education by the Catskill Puppet Theater
  • Motion and Machines: The Franklin Institute traveling program on physics
  • Rhythms and Rhymes: History of Spoken Word Poetry
  • Jonathan Sprout: Historical storyteller through original songs
Residencies allow students to learn skills in more depth from subject-matter experts. This year the PTO helped fund three residencies:
 
  • Annual McCarter Theatre Shakespeare residency for the 5th grade
  • School-wide Poetry Program, led by poet Janet Wong
  • Animals of Madagascar, featuring a visit by former LB science teacher Chad Lebo
