Events

The Brown International  Parent-Teacher Association organizes and hosts a number of events throughout the school year. Some events are designed as enrichment opportunities for students, some as fundraisers to support school projects not funded through the school’s regular budget. We encourage you to contact us with ideas you may have for school events and ask you to attend as many events as you can. Your child will benefit in a variety of ways!

Below is a list of the big upcoming events we have planned this year. Watch for more in the event calendar, on Facebook and Parent Square

Mini Viking Charge

The Mini Viking Charge is an annual school-wide fun run that takes place during the school day.   Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Brown International!

Throughout the day, each grade will run as many laps as they can around our athletic field during their specials time. We are encouraging all students and teachers to get sponsorships for their laps. Sponsor a student!

Read-A-Thon

The students logged over 101,697 minutes of reading and raised over $15,000. 

Thank you to all the sponsors and readers and our loyal community sponsor Bookbar.
