Check your beeper. Get out your mixed tapes. We are going old school with an adults-only 90s DJ dance party. This party is gonna be all that and a bag of chips. A DJ will be spinning the beats and our hosts will provide food and wine that is off the hook. Rather than setting a donation amount, feel free to donate an amount comfortable for you. Suggested donations:  $20-$50 per person. All proceeds support Littlebrook enrichment such as our slam poetry workshops, Shakespeare play, songwriting residency, character education assembly, black history celebration and other programming.  Register now!

 

MARKER COLLECTION

Bring in your older markers and look for a box in the school lobby to drop them off. Crayola will recycle them for our school which diverts more trash going to landfills!

 

CALL FOR McCAFFREY RECEIPTS McCaffrey's Food Market receipts can bring in over $1,000 each year for our school so please don't forget to collect and bring in yours. You can drop your receipts off in the school's main office or have your child bring them in via her/his class folder. A simple way to make a difference before the end of the school year!
