THANK YOU TO OUR FEBRUARY PARTY HOSTS
Since our fundraising night in late January, we've already had seven parties which together raised over $2,500 for our school.  Thank you to our third grade teachers who kicked off our parties with a lively "Cookies & Crafts," Principal Ramirez for tackling Monday Morning Quarterback sports talks with our kids after the Super Bowl, and our second grade teachers who hosted a sweet "Valentine's Breakfast & Books." A big thank you also to all of our family hosts: Bellace, Cassese, Crotty, Davidson, Hughes, Jones, LeBouef, Ludmer, Mawson, Peng, Smith and Walsh families. Their parties kept us active this winter month from running a 5K and building with Legos to learning to row and ice skate. We thank you for your generosity and the school for your participation! Onto our March parties...
 
ART ROOM VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
If you love art and you would like to come in to the art room twice a month (or weekly) for one hour to assist with mounting student artwork (in preparation for the much anticipated art show in May) please contact Mrs. Dell at colleendell@princetonk12.org.
  
CALL FOR BOX TOPS
Your Box Tops add up! In just the past few years, Littlebrook has raised over $5,000 from the Box Tops for Education program. The final submission deadline for this school year is March 1st, and Box Tops do expire, so now is the time to send in with your child whatever you have collected. Thank you for all your clipping and keep up the good work!
