Why Do We Have PTO Dues and What Do They Pay For?

Each year, the Brown PTO works with Principal John Jordan to identify areas in need of improvement throughout our school. In the last few years we have upgraded our computer lab, added books to our library, and renovated community spaces as part of the Best of Brown initiative.

The PTO also funds Creative Arts and Science programs and various classroom, team and advisory initiatives; sponsors teacher appreciation events, Faculty Foul-Ups, and school socials; and provides subsidies for field trips and school-related fees.

PTO-funded improvements and activities enrich our school and create a fuller learning experience for our students. We rely on your PTO dues (suggested $50 per family, but any amount is so appreciated) to help fund these programs and more!

The Annual Fund is the main fundraising effort of the Brown PTO, and raises 65% of the the funds for the PTO Budget. If you can, use the pull-down menu at the link below to make an extra donation. All contributions to the PTO Annual Fund are tax-deductible. With your dues payment, you will receive a printed copy of the Brown Directory.
