Brown Bear Report – 05/13/16

Dear Brown families,

We hope you are all enjoying the sunshine after so much rain! Spring is in its full glory, and we are racing towards the end of the year. Thank you so much to Felice Scheff and Nancy Braudis for culminating a great year of Teacher Appreciation events with delicious dessert extravaganza – and to the many families who supported them.
Thank you also to all the students who have collaborated over the last few weeks to raise an extraordinary $1,158.85 for Best Buddies, to support our friends with intellectual  and developmental disabilities. What an amazing group of students we have! And none of it would happen without our amazing teachers and staff. Thank you!
There are many fun events coming up in our last couple of months, so please be sure to read on and mark your calendars. Continue reading

First Friday Letter – 5/06/16

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are quickly approaching the mid-point of the last term. Mid-term progress reports for the third term will be going home with students during the week of May 16.  We ask that you please review the mid-term feedback reports with your child and send back a signed copy to your child’s teacher.

This year, the week of May 2 – 6 marks Teacher Appreciation Week.  I would like to publicly thank each of our teachers for the excellent work that they do on behalf of students at Brown.  Our teachers are very talented and outstanding at what they do.  Please remember that School Policy does not permit teachers to accept personal gifts from parents or students.  If you would like to recognize or thank your teachers a card, note, or email is suggested as an appropriate gesture.  You may also want to make a contribution the Brown Middle School PTO to support our school community.
