Please donate to the TBLS PA on Giving Tuesday, tomorrow, December 1! The Brooklyn Latin School needs the support of the TBLS Parent Association this year more than ever. The TBLS PA has stepped in to fund multiple school needs to deal with the current situation, including the IB question bank so that TBLS teachers have access to the actual IB test questions from which to teach our students; the October PSAT for Class II students; plexiglass shields for the front office; equipment to help ensure students have access to remote and hybrid learning; and much more. The TBLS PA will continue to fund teachers' classroom needs and extracurricular activities. With a decreased school budget, we expect the school's new funding requests to the TBLS PA to continue. Please consider the TBLS PA on Giving Tuesday and help us meet our donation goals so that the TBLS PA can help the school provide the world-class education our students are so fortunate to receive. More information on how to donate is available here. The TBLS PA is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
