One Last Reminder! Update Your Directory Listing and Save or Print a PDF Before It Goes Offline

One last helpful reminder before you head off for summer vacation! 

Access to the Brown Middle School 2015-2016 online directory will be removed at the end of June.

Until then, registered users can still access the online directory to update their info ready for next year, and to download or print a pdf of directory listings by grade or team. Click here to log in. If your email address has changed please email directory@brownpto.org, Email addresses cannot be updated online.

In August, returning and incoming families will receive a data confirmation email for the 2016-2017 directory, sent to the email address they have listed in the directory. Please be sure to check your information and display settings, and update as necessary. Even if your information has not changed, you must confirm your data before we can grant you access to the online directory. 

The 2016-2017 directory will be available online for authorized users as soon as possible at the beginning of the new school year. In addition, families who have paid PTO dues will receive a printed copy of the directory at Back to School Night, on Wednesday, September 21. Continue reading

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
