Principal's Message

Hello Brown Family,

It has been a wonderful couple weeks of giving back to the community.  First, Brown School just completed a wonderful food drive, where the school partnered with Hand to Hand.  Volunteers worked together to prepare more than 1000 snack packs in under 40 minutes!  The students had a great time and Hand to Hand was very happy to receive our amazing donation!  Next up was the can drive put on by the student council at Brown. The students are still working on the final tally, but there was great support from the families at Brown that will be passed onto the community.  

With that said, I am very proud to be the principal in a building and district that cares so much about giving back.  We are so fortunate to be given much, and when much is given, much is expected. We are answering the call and will support so many wonderful local families throughout the holiday season.

Thank you for your support and here’s to a wonderful two weeks!

December 11 - Choir concerts, 3rd grade 6:00pm and 4th grade 7:15pm.  Please pardon the big dust, dirt, and mud at the high school.  We are blessed to have over 300 singers in this year’s choir. WIth all the support that comes with those numbers, please remember parking will be tight.  Just remember, the construction now will impact our students in an amazing way for years and years to come!

December 14 - OK 2 Say assemblies for 3rd and 4th grade classes.  The Kent County Sheriff’s Department partnered with the state will be holding a daytime anti-bullying and safe school assembly for our 3rd and 4th grade students.
