We would like to take this opportunity to welcome each of you and
your families to Frank W. Brown Elementary School. As Brown PTO board
members, it is among our responsibilities to talk with you about our
organization, invite you to be an active member and very importantly,
encourage you to get involved in your school. But first, since this may
be the first time at Brown for many of you, please let us explain what
the Brown PTO is all about.
PTO Programs and Fundraising
Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds,
programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the
education of every child. To meet this important objective, and afford
services that are no longer covered by our school budget, we must have fundraisers. Though it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a
necessary one. Our school community must raise money if we want
to provide our children with field trip transportation, assemblies
through out the year, equipment and materials for the classrooms,
special grade incentive celebrations, Positive Behavior Program, 4th
& 5th grade honor roll luncheons, March Reading Month activities and
a free book for each student, field day, as well as improving the
playground and the beautification of our school.
What is the Brown PTO and who can be a member? We strive to enhance children’s educational experiences as well as promote open communication and understanding between parents and the staff at Brown. You are automatically a member of the Brown PTO, if you are a parent or guardian of a child attending Brown Elementary or a staff member at Brown.

You do not have to attend monthly meetings to be an active member of the PTO. We have other ways of keeping parents informed. If you can attend a meeting – great! We welcome any new ideas and can always use your help.
On behalf of the Brown Elementary PTO, we would once again like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year! Please feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns.
