Principal's Message

Hello Brown Elementary Families,

Can it really be the beginning of another year?!  Living in Michigan we thoroughly enjoy our beautiful summer.  I hope that each family of Brown and Byron Center Public Schools was able to take time to enjoy the joy that is Michigan.  Along with the beauty, we also saw a summer that was particularly dry and children were able to be outside more than many summers in the past.  While the work we do in elementary school is so important, summer is a great time for families and students to re-energize, get outside, and play with their friends.  I am excited to review the Kent District Library summer reading program results as many students take part in this fun, exciting challenge as well. While summer is wrapping up and we begin to think about school again, the teachers at Brown have worked hard to keep the excitement and joy going throughout the school year.  We are all very excited to see familiar returning faces, and equally excited to welcome our new friends in kindergarten and new students to the district!

The teachers have spent countless hours this summer preparing for the 2018-2019 school year.  They have traveled the country in search of the best professional development to ensure only the highest quality of instruction.  Many staff members spent time training with the creator of our ELA program, Lucy Calkins. Using their time with Mrs. Calkins and her staff they are more prepared to bring the joy and love of reading and writing to the students.  I am very proud of the time the teachers spend learning new ways to teach and support learning in the classroom every year. Teacher teams have worked together during the summer to better align themselves and focus on how to find more success academically, socially, and behaviorally this year at Brown!  Please help me in bringing joy to their lives at Brown as the families at Brown have done for so many other teachers before them.

The 2018-2019 school year is going to be great and I am excited to have your children as part of it.

Proud to be a Bulldog!
