We are a public school transforming the way we learn and think, and we need your help now more than ever. Help us sustain our commitment to youth in the face of increasing budget cuts.

Arts & Letters' budget has remained at the same low level for the past three years. Offering your child a program of instruction that aims to fulfill Arts & Letters’ lofty mission requires additional funding from parents, extended family, and the community at large.  Donations to the annual appeal have been vital to the maintenance of much that we hold dear. The funding support from you preserves our arts and science programming and helps pay for classroom equipment, substitute teachers, books and professional development. 

Several ways you can help us
meet our financial goals:

I Heart A&L

  • You can donate money online all at once or with a monthly auto-pay

  • You can donate by check or money order, made out to “Arts & Letters PTA,” and drop it in the purple PTA mailbox in the entrance to Room 309, or mail to: Arts & Letters, PTA Mailbox, Room 309, 225 Adelphi Street, Brooklyn, New York 11205

Box Tops

One of the many ways we raise money is through the Box Tops 4 Education program. Please peek inside your cabinets and gather all the Box Tops you can find. Drop them off in the main office with Ms. Williams.

Box Tops are located on a wide range of products (not just cereal!), such as Ziploc brand containers and bags, Hanes socks and underwear, Betty Crocker baking products, Scott paper goods, Hefty trash bags, Progresso, Cascadian Farms, Pillsbury products, and so much more. For a complete list of participating Box Tops products, visit:

In addition, signing up for the Box Tops 4 Education newsletter will grant you access to loads of chances to get bonus Box Tops for the school. If you have a few minutes, it's a great opportunity to increase the amount of money we raise through this program. You can sign up here (type in "arts & letters" to find our school):

There are two deadlines during the year, so please clip the coupons all year long and then bring them in. Each Box Top earns 10 cents for the school — if everyone contributes, that adds up quickly. It's a super easy way to earn free money toward A&L's fundraising goals.
