Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are returning refreshed and ready to go. The Brown School PTO is excited to support our students, parents, teachers and staff throughout the year ahead.
Whether this year is your family’s first year at Brown, or your last, the PTO needs your help and support! Volunteering with the PTO is a great way to get involved in the Brown School community and there are opportunities for all schedules and skill-sets. You can help set-up or plan events, volunteer at the Magic Hat Thrift Shop, help with teacher appreciation coffees or garden with your student’s class, all while getting to know other parents.
Our PTO provides financial and volunteer support in many different ways throughout the Brown School. We fund and staff enrichment activities tied to the curriculum such as the Mass Audubon School Programs, Discovery Museums’ Traveling Science Workshops and the on-site Brown Elementary Garden Program. We organize and run community building events including the Monster Mash at Halloween and the Holiday Shop in December. We support our incredible staff through regular teacher appreciation events, funding for classroom supplies, and subscriptions to GoZen! and BrainPop Jr. We strive to promote school spirit through our events and we are fortunate to work closely with our dedicated staff to help our students learn and grow.
One of the important ways we provide our school with these opportunities is through fundraising. Please help us continue our work to enrich our students’ experience by taking part in our Fall Contribution Drive. We are grateful for any amount that works for your family. There are two ways to donate:
- Write a check payable to the Brown School PTO and mail it to:
Brown School PTO, 40 Baldwin Road Marblehead, MA 01945
- Donate via our directory site: https://brownschoolpto.membershiptoolkit.com
Please note that the Brown School PTO is an IRS approved 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible. Check with your employer regarding matching gift programs!
Please mark your calendars for our first Brown PTO meeting on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 8:30 AM. We will meet in the school cafeteria. We welcome all parents to our meetings!
The best way to stay in the know and keep in touch with other families in your class is by:
- joining our online family directory at brownschoolpto.membershiptoolkit.com;
- finding vital information and volunteer opportunities at brownschoolpto.org;
- following us on Facebook @ljbrownschoolpto; and

We wish everyone a successful start to the school year!
