It’s that time of year! If you want to do something special for your child’s teacher or other staff this year, consider the Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program, now in its 20th year. Make a $25 donation (or any amount) to the foundation in the teacher’s name. Teachers, as well as their Principal and the Superintendent, will be notified of this honor, and their names will appear in a special notification in the Newton TAB. Look for a flyer in your child’s backpack or in your mailbox if you have children in the upper grades. To donate online and to find out more about the programs NSF funds, go to www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org. Donations are tax-deductible and go toward enhancing the quality of education, including teachers’ professional development and new curricula and learning opportunities throughout Newton’s schools.
Nothing captures the memories of the school year like a yearbook! But supplies are extremely limited! Order now for $30 before they’re just another memory. Please, visit the Brown MS yearbook order page to purchase your copy today!
Sunday, June 4
It’s not too late to register for the Brown Middle School AIDS Walk team for the 32nd annual AIDS Walk Boston, which will take place on Sunday, June 4! We are proud to continue the tradition of being one of the top fundraising teams at this event. Last year we had almost 400 walkers and raised about $27,000! This year we already have over 200 participants registered, and have raised over $8,000. This will be our 18th year participation in the AIDS Walk, and we encourage parents and siblings to register and walk with their students. Officially registering your family’s participants helps us know how many to expect and how many subsidized T fares we will need.
Please click here for information on how to register. Although the order for t-shirts has been placed, may have extras in your size available for purchase the week before the event.
We hope that you and your child will join Team Brown!
