All-New Brown Middle School Advisory Games! Tuesday, June 21, 9:30-11am

Celebrating the success of the Advisory Program, Brown is introducing a new year-end tradition!

The first ever
Brown Middle School Advisory Games
will be held on
Tuesday, June 21, from 9:30-11am

The Advisory Games will be made up of 4 different games that each grade will compete in. Each grade will have their own field to play the games, which will be held on the fields across from Brown. Please be sure your student has sunblock and water – it’s going to be warm!

We need 21 parent/guardian volunteers to help facilitate each game station.
This is a great opportunity to get involved with a very fun activity,and help make sure all our students have a wonderful experience. There will be a brief meeting at 8am, and it would be helpful if a few volunteers could attend that meeting and then share the information with their teammates.
Please click here to sign up.

Any questions, please contact Courtney Paull at courtney_paull@newton.k12.ma.us and Chiqui Helbert at christina_helbert@newton.k12.ma.us.

Brown Bear Report 06/10/16

Dear Brown Families,

It’s hard to believe that this is the last Brown Bear Report of the year, with only 10 very busy school days left to go. In the run up to our last day, we will continue to send timely blasts with pertinent information and reminders — anything you need to know or do before heading off to the beach, or wherever your summer takes you.

These blasts and Brown Bear Reports would not be possible without our dedicated team of e-Communications editors, Cindy Lam-Yee, Srilatha Raghuram, Tina Scioletti, and Ray Zhang. They are the heroes who have worked quietly in the background all year to make sure that you have the information you need, when you need it. Their team is the backbone of our community, keeping us all connected. Thank you!  Continue reading
