Welcome Back Brown Families!

As the summer progresses and the new school year is on the cusp of return, I want to welcome and welcome back the over 600 students to Brown Elementary!  The staff at Brown has been hard at work preparing for another great school year.  I am so thankful for the Brown Community of families and the support you have given over time.  The 2021-2022 school year is going to be full of laughter, learning, and love for all things BC!

The last school year tested the community in many ways.  We bound together and worked as a team to make it successful.  We found ways to support, grow, and congratulate each other.  I look forward to the opportunity to do many great things and bring back some of the awesome things we did in the past!  Many students also participated in our Summer Learning/Book Give Aways at Bicentennial Park.  Thank you for your love and support of Byron Center and our love for reading.  As we get ready for the new school year the entire staff will continue to care for your children socially, emotionally, and academically.

More than ever, I am excited to see the many students back in the building at our Open House this year!  We will hold Open House from 5:00pm-6:30pm, Tuesday, August 24.  This will be a great time to have all of the students and their families welcomed back to Brown!  The first day of school will be the following day, August 25.  The staff will have 3 great days to connect with the students and hear about the many stories from their summer.

As we continue to grow and change there will be some faces in new classrooms.  Brown Elementary has the privilege of wonderful teachers throughout the building.  The new group of teachers have all worked in Byron Center Public Schools in some capacity and understand the high expectations for care and learning we give in BC.  Please help me in welcoming the new teachers to Brown!  Thank you for your patience this summer as the schedule was finalized.  We are also working to finalize class lists.  Due to the increased enrollment this month we are still working on class lists, but will have them out very soon!

It is going to be a great year and I am thrilled to see you all at open house!  If you have any questions, I am just a phone call or email away.

As always, Proud to be a Bulldog!

Mr. Gitler
