Principal's Message

Hello Brown Families,

Wow, what an outpouring of support we have received from the community!  The students have been very excited through the first weeks of our fundraiser and it has shown!  Our initial goal of $15000 has been surpassed, and now we are counting our way to totals we could not have imagined!  Students have been reminded of their mini-goal of $3000 by this Monday.  If they reach this goal the teaching staff has obliged to spray paint their hair for “wacky hair day”.  Let’s see how far we can take this until the Monster Dash on the 26th.

Along with the amazing learning happening every day, the upcoming week is one of the most exciting for the students!  Brown will be celebrating spirit week October 8-12. Each day will have its own theme concluding with BC Pride day and the Homecoming Parade and game Friday.  Spirit day themes are included below.

We have already shared many great academic accomplishments this year.  Students have been excited to see their reading counts points grow, earn high scores on beginning of year tests, and in DK and kindergarten master all of their letters and sounds!  I am very proud of the hard work done every day by the students and staff at Brown. Every day should be staff appreciation because of the care and focus for the students. We will continue to learn, grow [body, mind, and soul], and have fun coming to school each day!

Proud to be a Bulldog!

Mr. Gitler
