PTO Community Meeting Follow-Up

Thank you to all who attended last Monday’s Brown PTO community meeting. Please stay tuned this week for follow-up information regarding next year’s volunteer opportunities later this week. 

8th Grade Moving On Packages Have Been Delivered!

Many thanks to all the parent volunteers who delivered Moving On Packages to our 8th graders over the past few days. Families should have received a lawn sign, 8th-grade yearbook, and Newton South Spirit item at their homes. If any 8th grader did not receive this package or was missing any portion of the delivery, please email us! We would also like to thank Mr. Primeau for putting the yearbook together again this year, despite the limited time and resources he had without access to the school building.  Click here if you still need to make a payment or would like to make a donation towards the 8th Grade Moving On packages.  All the best to our rising Freshman!

Mr. Jordan’s Ice Cream Party

Mr. Jordan was very surprised to be greeted online by more than 120 members of the Brown community on Wednesday evening. Thank you to all who logged onto the Zoom to wish him well in retirement. Mr. Jordan was treated to a surprise ice-cream delivery, a fun-facts quiz and a slideshow. And before the end of the month, he’ll receive the tribute photobook we’ve put together thanks to all your contributions. Thank you! 

Parents of Students on IEPs or 504s

Kim Gallaugher is the new and former SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) liaison for Brown Middle School. If any current parents of students receiving special education services would be willing to join her for a Zoom meeting for incoming families, please contact her – She would especially appreciate hearing from parents whose kids are in SPARK, STRIDE or FOCUS but anyone willing to share information and advice for new parents is welcome to join in!

Brown Helping Brown Families
