Brown invites all parents to “Navigating the Cyber World,” an informative parent workshop sponsored by Brown Middle School and the Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc. Geared for parents, this workshop reviews the challenges that may arise through the use of the Internet, social media and smartphones. Topics include issues such as cyberbullying, sexting and revealing identifying information to strangers.
Tuesday and Wednesday, February 12 & 13
The cast, crewmembers, costume, and set designers have all been working hard at rehearsals for our all-school musical production of Mary Poppins. We hope that you will plan to join us in the Brown auditorium for what promises to be two incredible evenings of theatre.
Our next luncheon to show our appreciation for our faculty and staff will take place on Wednesday, February 6th at 12:00 pm. Please keep an eye out for next week’s Brown Bear Report email for additional details and a link to sign up to donate food items, volunteer to assist with setting up and/or clean up.
