    November 30, 2016

    Dear Brown School Family,

    Last night was an incredible night for Brown School athletics! We had a record turnout for our White Out game against Portland Christian. It was the debut of both of our new basketball coaches! Erin Spalding coached our boys varsity basketball team in overtime to win a 77-74 heart stopping game. Coach Stacy Pendleton led our Lady Bears to a huge 60-12 victory! It truly was an amazing event.

    Come out on December 2nd at 6:00 to cheer on our Lady Bears to a victory against Seneca! Our next home boys basketball game is December 6th at 6:00 versus Evangel; come out and support our team!

    Yesterday our middle school boys and girls basketball teams played at Collegiate. Our boys won their game and our girls lost a fiercely fought game. Our middle school teams will be playing on December 1st at 6:00 (boys) and 7:30 (girls) at Shawnee Middle School. Make plans to attend!

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Animal Shelter Angel Tree
    Do you LOVE animals? Do you need a jump start to get in the Christmas spirit? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you should head on down to the Brown School lobby and pick out an angel (OR THREE!) from our Animal Shelter Angel Tree. You may drop-off all purchased items, along with the angel, in the office; there is a box in front of the counter, or in Christi’s room.

    Please Help Us Help Louisville’s Homeless Animals!

     

    MS/HS Movie Night
    Students in grades 6-12 are invited to attend our movie night, sponsored by KUNA. From 3:00 to 10:00 on December 9th, your evening will be filled with tasty treats, movies, and a talent show. Look for more information on flyers around the school and pick up a permission slip in Liz Byron’s room 324. The cost is $15 per person, or $20 if the student would like two slices of pizza.

     

    NAEP Testing
    Randomly selected 4th and 8th grade students will be participating in the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) assessment this school year.  NAEP is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects.  The results of NAEP are released on The Nation’s Report Card.  NAEP is congressionally mandated and was first administered in 1969 to measure student achievement nationally.  Some Brown parents may have received a letter from NAEP informing them that their child had been selected to participate in this assessment in the areas of reading and mathematics.  Randomly selected 4th grade students will be given the NAEP on February 1, 2017, and randomly selected 8th grade students will be given the NAEP on February 2, 2017.  It will take approximately 120 minutes to complete this assessment.  Teachers and parents do NOT need to prepare students to take the NAEP, but should encourage students to do their best.  This assessment will not affect your child’s grade.  NAEP does not calculate scores for individual students.  So, neither the government nor your child’s school or teacher will ever know how your child performed on NAEP.  NAEP results are used to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States.  For more information about NAEP, contact Christy Teague at christy.teague@jefferson.kyschools.us or call her at 485-8216.  Additional information is also available at http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard

    November 23, 2016

    Dear Brown School Family,

    I have some exciting news to share regarding our Brown School Library. Over the next few weeks, middle and high school students will have access to Brown School Library E-Books. We will be collaborating with Noe Middle School and JCTMS who already have a collection, to allow all our kids to have more options available to them. Amanda Klakamp, our librarian, has been working with a representative from Overdrive over the last few months to determine how we could effectively execute this, being that we are unique as a K-12 school. This year we will focus on mddle and high and will continue to work on elementary options for next year.

    For those who aren’t familiar with Overdrive, it is a web based service that offers eBooks and audiobooks, free through the library, just like our normal checkouts. Students will be able to enjoy books on all major devices, including iPhones, iPads, Nooks, Android phones and tablets, and Kindles.

    When we are up and running, the link to our Overdrive will be linked to the Brown School Library webpage (currently under construction). Students will use their Brown School computer username and password to log in.

    As a school who allows your students to use devices in class, this will open a whole new opportunity for them! This isn’t, by any means, a replacement of our library books, however it will allow students to access titles over the weekend, from home, etc.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Staffing Changes

    Two of our amazing, beloved middle school teachers will be retiring at the end of December – Rita Nichols and Traci Titus. We will be making some changes at that time so that David Stowers will be teaching our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science classes. Middle school student schedules will not be changing, only the teacher who will be teaching the class will change.

    Fifth grade Advance Program Science, currently taught by Mr. Stowers, will be taken over by Amy Thornton when we return from winter break. Mr. Stowers’ Study Skills classes will begin reporting to the library after winter break and will be supervised by Amanda and Anitra. Third graders who were receiving additional instruction in science by Traci will instead receive their additional science from Samantha.

    If you have any questions regarding these changes, please email Angela at the address above.

    Dear Brown School Family,

    We are thankful!

    As we prepare to take a short break from school for Thanksgiving, we want to express our gratitude for everyone who makes it possible for as many students as possible to come to school every day, on time, ready to learn. We thank:

    Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority since they know the habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom and eventually in a job.
    Our wonderful teachers who pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge so children do not want to miss out on learning
    Our support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our children need

    We appreciate each one of you so much. We look forward to seeing you after the Thanksgiving holiday. We also hope you will keep in mind that our building is closed starting at noon on Wednesday, November 23rd and reopens at 7:00 AM on Monday, November 28th.

    We especially appreciate everyone’s efforts to avoid taking extra days off during the Thanksgiving holiday. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and leave your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Dear Brown School Family,

    First of all, I’d like to acknowledge our Brown School staff who’ve served our great nation in the U. S. military: DeAngelo Brown, Curtis Moss, Peggy Neblett, and Stacy Pendleton. Thank you for helping to preserve our freedom and democracy. It’s an honor to have individuals working here who have shown a willingness to come forth when the need arises to pay the price for our freedom with their honor, devotion, and when necessary, their lives. We greatly appreciate the service of these heroes on this Veterans Day!

    Be sure to visit our “Bears of the Month” page on our website at http://www.mybrownschool.org/bears_month. We’ve added several students and staff for the month of November.

    Yesterday, a parent shared with me the difficulty in pulling up these weekly messages from Windows phones, as the Remind App is not available for download. We figured out that it would be best to sign up for both the text and the email notification; with the email notification, you only have to click one time to read the message as an attachment. To change your notification settings, log in to Remind.com. Then in the upper left corner click on your name, account, notifications, and select both text and email. When you receive the text that a message has been sent, you can go to your email and easily read it with one click.

    If you are using an Android or iPhone, the Remind App is the easiest to use. You can open the message with just one click.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Admissions for the 2017-18 School Year
    Admissions information for next school year is available on our website at www.mybrownschool.org/admissions.

    Families of applicants must attend either the Open House or a scheduled building tour. Building tour information can be found on our website.

    If your child has a sibling that is applying to a level of our school that you’ve had a child attend (i.e., a kindergartener is applying and you’ve had a child attend Brown Elementary), then the building tour or Open House is not required. However, you have to tell us! Please send an email to Shawn.Wilson@jefferson.kyschools.us to make him aware that you have a sibling applying that meets this criteria. If your child is applying to a level of our school that you’ve not had a child attend (i.e., a 9th grader is applying and you’ve had children attend Brown Middle), then you must complete the building tour or Open House.

    Siblings of current Brown School students are not given preference in the admissions process.

    Current Brown School students do not reapply to attend Brown School for the following year! Students are automatically re-enrolled.

     

    Box Tops

    Looking for an easy way to help our school?  Look in your cabinets for Box Tops!

    Box Tops are each worth 10¢ for schools and are found on hundreds of products. When students, families, schools and communities work together to collect Box Tops, the money adds up fast. Last year, the Brown School earned $850, which we used to meet several school needs. We can earn even more cash this school year with your help. Our goal this year is $1,000. Here are a few ways you can help us reach that goal:

    * Students in Grades K-5 will receive a Box Tops chart. Simply cut out Box Tops that haven't expired yet, and attach them to the sheet. Once your sheet is full, bring it back to school!

    * Students in the higher grades can bring in their Box Tops and put them in the "Box Tops" box in the office.

     

    After School Student Supervision

    Our SBDM approved a new policy last year, the After School Supervision Policy, regarding students who are remaining after school unsupervised, who are not engaged in a supervised after school activity or who are not enrolled in the YMCA Childcare Enrichment Program (CEP). Instances of students being found after school unsupervised will be documented and reoccurrences may result in students being placed on probation at the school. Please make sure that your student is being picked up each day be 3:00 PM or is enrolled in CEP. To help with locating a carpool, our PTSA has set up a bulletin board on their page on our school website at http://www.mybrownschool.org/ptsa.


    Morning Drop Off
    Morning drop off begins each morning at 7:30 AM. Please do not drop off students prior to this time as there is not adult supervision in the building. Students cannot be left unsupervised at any time. No student should be waiting outside the cafeteria or library, as these locations do not open until 7:30.

    The doors to the school are locked until 7:00 AM.

    Dear Brown School Family,

    Stop what you are doing and watch this amazing video from the Courier Journal about our mock election! This video was just released today: http://cjky.it/2fnuf1o

    We were also featured on three news outlets yesterday for our mock election and winning the Georgia Davis Powers Award.

    WAVE3:    http://www.wave3.com/story/33626784/brown-school-garners-award-honoring-powers

    WDRB:      www.wdrb.com/story/33625467/students-at-the-brown-school-hold-mock-voting-for-us-presidential-election

    I want to especially thank Stacy Pendleton, our high school social studies teacher who coordinated the election unit! Stacy epitomizes the ideal that as educators, we are here to teach all our students – not just the ones who are on our roster. Not only did Stacy and his students teach our school about the political parties, candidates, and election process, they taught us a very important life lesson about tolerance. I know this mock election was a meaningful educational experience for our entire school, and one that our students will never forget.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Dear Brown School Family,

    As the presidential election nears, Brown School students will be taking part in school-wide mock presidential campaign and election activities. Stacy Pendleton’s Advanced Placement Government & Politics and Law & Government students have been randomly assigned political parties (either Democrats or Republicans), and they are responsible for developing campaign materials, radio and TV advertisements, and classrooms presentations for their assigned candidates. In small groups, students representing each party will be visiting classrooms and sharing their assigned party’s platform, candidate, voting day instructions, and the importance of voting. Then on November 3rd and 4th, each class will visit the polling location. On the way there, Stacy’s students will be campaigning for their assigned party’s candidate, and each student will cast his/her vote at the polling location. No matter who wins our mock election, we hope that our students learn the importance of their participation in our country’s election process. Maybe this activity will inspire some of our students to strive for a career in public service!

Last year, the Brown School earned $850, which we used to meet several school needs. We can earn even more cash this school year with your help. Our goal this year is $1,000. Here are a few ways you can help us reach that goal:

    * Students in Grades K-5 will receive a Box Tops chart. Simply cut out Box Tops that haven't expired yet, and attach them to the sheet. Once your sheet is full, bring it back to school!

    * Students in the higher grades can bring in their Box Tops and put them in the "Box Tops" box in the office.

     

    After School Student Supervision

    Our SBDM approved a new policy last year, the After School Supervision Policy, regarding students who are remaining after school unsupervised, who are not engaged in a supervised after school activity or who are not enrolled in the YMCA Childcare Enrichment Program (CEP). Instances of students being found after school unsupervised will be documented and reoccurrences may result in students being placed on probation at the school. Please make sure that your student is being picked up each day be 3:00 PM or is enrolled in CEP. To help with locating a carpool, our PTSA has set up a bulletin board on their page on our school website at http://www.mybrownschool.org/ptsa.


    Morning Drop Off
    Morning drop off begins each morning at 7:30 AM. Please do not drop off students prior to this time as there is not adult supervision in the building. Students cannot be left unsupervised at any time. No student should be waiting outside the cafeteria or library, as these locations do not open until 7:30.

    The doors to the school are locked until 7:00 AM.
