Annual Donations Drive

Direct donations from parents and caregivers are a key source of revenue for the PTO. Please take a moment to read about our '23-'24 fundraising priorities--including critical playground improvements--and consider giving what you can.

Princeton Girl Scouts

Is your girl looking to make new friends, get active in her community, and have fun? Then Girl Scouts is the place for her! In Girl Scouts, your girl will shine in confidence-boosting, girl-approved exciting experiences.

Help girls make friends, plan new adventures, and build a better world with Girl Scouts. Be the one who brings people together by teaming up with a friend or neighbor to start a Girl Scout troop. Girl Scouts is about fun, learning, and sisterhood, and if you’re organized, kind, and welcoming, you would make a great Girl Scout troop volunteer!

The more adult volunteers we have on board, the faster we can form troops. Please fill out our general interest form, and someone from our volunteer team will be in touch shortly! 

Craft: Paper Cranes and Butterflies

To celebrate the International Day of Peace, kids of all ages are invited to drop by the third floor to create and decorate paper cranes and butterflies as part of a collaborative art project.
