Principal's Message

Hello Brown Family!

It is hard to believe that next week is our last full week of April before May comes!  There is nothing better than getting students outside each day as the weather warms and not taking more than 10 minutes to put on snow gear!  

The next seven weeks are full of great learning and some testing.  As attendance is paramount for student learning, please continue to support the district and school by having your children to school each day.  We love having the children here and they grow tremendously during this time of the school year. The entire Brown staff is looking forward to the coming weeks we have with your precious children!

Proud to be a Bulldog!

Mr. Gitler

Kindergarten Registration - Byron Center is in full swing for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.  If you have not yet registered your kindergartener, please go to: bcpsk12.net and begin the online registration portion.  After this has been completed, paperwork can be turned into the district office to finalize a spot for your child.

Get on Out and Vote! - Please see the included message from Superintendent Dan Takens:

Hello BC Nation!

My office has been receiving calls and emails with questions regarding the May 7, 2019 Headlee Override vote. As a former Civics teacher I appreciate and encourage voters to research and learn as much as possible before voting.  Therefore, the attached Headlee Override information document provides a helpful guide for the May 7, 2019 Headlee Override vote for your review.

Please call my office with any follow up questions and most importantly please exercise your right to vote on May 7!

We are BC!
