BIKE AND WALK TO SCHOOL DAY- TOMORROW, Wednesday, May 9th
Strap on that bike helmet or tie up those laces to join us for the 2018 Bike and Walk to School Day on Wednesday, May 9th! Biking and walking to school is a wonderful and healthy way to start your child's school day. Bus riders will be dropped off a couple of blocks from school so that they too can enjoy some physical activity. A special guest might even be on hand to greet the walkers and bikers!

THANK YOU TO OUR APRIL PARTY HOSTS!
Spring was in the air for our April fundraising parties. Our April parties raised close to $3,000 for our school. Children enjoyed Book BINGO (thanks to Cristina Avena, Theresa Cross, Bryan McKenna and Kami Woodson), racing around the school during the Digital Scavenger Hunt (thanks to Ted Holsten, Holly Javick, Bryan McKenna, Caitlin Rossi and Julie Weisman), decorating cupcakes with our fifth grade teachers and spending breakfast time in pajamas with our Kindergarten teachers.

 
Much appreciation for the efforts and support of our family hosts: Applegate/Linsley, Austermann/Martens, Becker/Jang, Eleches-Lipsitz, Kiesewetter, Park/Son, Tangen, Vitaro. Thanks to these families, our kids had an action-packed afternoon of bowling and laser tag and we (adults) stayed active, too. We had our first ever "April Madness" parent basketball tournament and spring walking tour of the Princeton University campus while also honoring legacies, such as belting out tunes at Rock the Mic Karaoke Night VII! Next up - Our May parties are already on a roll with only one left on our schedule. If there is a party or event you'd like to host on behalf of Littlebrook before the end of the year, please get in touch at lpesnell@gmail.com.
