The latest announcements from the Principal, PTO, and NPS...
The Brown office wanted us to remind all current 5th grade parents and guardians: It’s important that you fill out and send in your student’s World Language selection form for next Fall. They have received many forms, but they have definitely not heard from everyone.
For your convenience, here is a copy of the form to download. Please remember to indicate your student’s elementary school on the form.

Calling all current 5th grade parents and guardians! You’ve heard from your elementary principals or PTOs that Principal John Jordan will visit each elementary school to hold a coffee just for parents and guardians of incoming 6th graders at Brown. He’ll be accompanied by one of our School Counselors and members of the Brown PTO–including at least one of our newly-designated 6th Grade Parent Liaisons.
Please do pop in to say hello, hear more about the transition to middle school and ask any questions you might have. Below is a reminder of our visit schedule.
Coffees begin after drop-off, meeting room locations are determined by your elementary school, check in when you arrive:
Friday, April 27
Monday, April 30
Friday, May 4
Monday, May 7
Parents and guardians of 8th graders: If you are interested in being on the 8th Grade Committee, please email email@example.com.
While the 8th Grade Moving On ceremony and traditional year-end field trip are not PTO-sponsored activities, parents have in the past organized a party, raised funds for a class gift, and helped the teachers and administrators with some of the ceremony details on an as-needed basis. All of these activities are determined by the energy and volunteer availability of the parents & guardians on the 8th Committee.
Please note: The traditional Moving-On ceremony is planned by our fantastic school administration and 8th grade faculty. Mr. Jordan’s First Friday Letter in February stated that the date of the ceremony is traditionally the last day of school. At the time of this writing the School Committee hasn’t voted officially on the date for the last day, but according to our calculations, if we have no more snow days (yikes!), it should be Friday, June 22. This is an educated guess, but not the final word, so please stay tuned.
