Principal's Message

Hello Brown Family!

The last week has been filled with many great visitors!  The high school football players came to read to our students, VIP Day has included all grades DK-4, Kids Hope Mentors have begun making connections with students, and the WATCH D.O.G.S. program has begun at Brown.  The support of the community and families at Brown and Byron Center never ends. The students and staff are so grateful for your continued support in any capacity you have available. Please contact the office if you want to know how you too can be part of the Brown Community during the school day.  Thank you for all you do!

The coming weeks and months are filled with many great opportunities for the students at Brown.  The current offering of Bricks for Kidz Lego Club is in full swing. If your child did not get into the first session, please know that there will be more opportunities to join in the future.  We also have the amazing Brown Choir showing their wonderful talents with Mrs. Baar in the morning. For school events, next week kicks off spirit week in Byron Center. The week will be full of fun and dress up days (listed on the calendar)!  October will finish out with Halloween and the Monster Dash! It is going to be a wonderful October and beyond!

As next week begins with spirit week, the Conquerors will once again visit Brown for a school assembly.  As they bend, break, and show other feats of strength, the message of Best Bulldog Behavior will be spread throughout their show.  After the Conquerors, we will kick off the Monster Dash Fundraiser. Students will get to hear about the exciting opportunities that will come with the Monster Dash this year. The Monster Dash will take place on November 1st.  This is a Friday and a half day, so less academic time is effected. November 1st will also include the Halloween parties and big Halloween parade! Having both activities the same day will make it easier for family to attend all events without taking multiple days off of work.  We look forward to a great time with spirit week, the Conquerors, and Monster Dash Fundraiser kickoff!

Proud to be  Bulldog!

Mr. Gitler
