Fundraising parties (also known as party boards) are social opportunities for kids, adults or families to get together to raise funds for our school enrichment. About half of our annual fundraising budget comes from paid participation in these parties!
How do fundraising parties work?
One or more families get together to host or sponsor a party which means they incur the expenses of the party. Other Littlebrook families, parents or students then sign up for this party by registering and making the suggested donation to our PTO. In this way, all of the money raised helps support our school enrichment.
What are some ideas for parties?
Past Fundraising parties included:
- Littlebrook at the Movies (Princeton Garden Theater)
- Ice Skating at Princeton Day School
- Sourdough Bread and Pizza Class at LiLLiPiES
- Book Bingo
- Bowling and Laser Tag at Colonial Bowling
- Polar Bear Pool Party
Thanks to the generous contributions of our local businesses, families and organizations, the PTO offers a variety of goods and experiences. These are both within the Greater Princeton Area and farther afield.
The Silent Auction items are on display during the annual Pasta Dinner (January). Bidding takes place in person during the dinner.
Announcements for participating in the auction will be announced in early 2019.
If you would like to donate goods or services, please contact:
Littlebrook Students don't get to have all the fun. Consider hosting a special sort of Fundraising Party - one that is only for parents!
Parent parties are an opportunity for the grownups to meet and socialize without the children present for an evening or afternoon. Consider hosting one to meet your child's classmates or other parents from Littlebrook.
The setup is the same as Fundraising Parties: one or two families host the party and donate the cost of hosting. Other families sign-up and donate the suggested amount.

Box Tops for Education
Littlebrook participates in the Box Tops for Education™ program, sponsored by General Mills. Each time you purchase a General Mills product, clip and save the Box Tops coupon located on its box. Store the coupons either on a collection sheet or in an envelope or bag; then send them to school via your child's folder each month or season.
Each coupon is worth 10 cents, which may not seem like a lot, but adds up from year to year.
Since 2013, Littlebrook has raised $5,275.24 from the Box Tops for Education program!
The final submission deadline for this school year is March 1st. Box Tops do expire, so now is the time to send in whatever you have.
You can find Box Tops on hundreds of your favorite products, such as Annie's, Cheerios, Green Giant, Hefty, Kleenex, Lysol, Pillsbury, Ziploc, etc. See full list of products.
When grocery shopping locally within Princeton and choosing McCafferey's, please save your receipts. Submit these to the Littlebrook Office or send in with your child's folder. Littlebrook receives 0.95% of qualifying item costs from each receipt. With almost 300 families at Littlebrook, this amounts to a significant amount by the end of each year.
