Brown PTO Winter Workshops

The Brown PTO is excited to offer before and after school workshops for students this Winter. These activities are a great way to “beat the cold” and stay after school (or before school for Chess Club!) to participate in a fun and enriching activity with friends. Sign Ups will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis on Sign Up Genius. Please note that payment will be collected via Sign-Up Genius. The fee for each workshop goes towards compensating the instructors, with a percentage going directly back to the PTO to support Brown School. Financial assistance is available and inquiries are confidential. Please email Principal Frank Henderson for financial assistance.
