    Dear Brown School Family,

    I’m very excited to share with you that we just received more of the Smart Board panels for our classrooms! These Smart Board panels are on carts and can be moved from classroom to classroom so that more students can have access to technology during the teaching and learning process. Currently, every elementary classroom has its own interactive panel except one; this classroom will be receiving one for the 2017-18 school year. In addition, several middle and high school classrooms have panels. The new panels will be shared by the following teachers:

    • Alice Stevenson and Stacy Pendleton
    • Mary Todd and Dr. Kat Mattingly
    • Alex Murphy and Valerie Jillson
    • Joel Prestigiacomo and Juanita Leksrisawat
    • Allana Thompkins and Jessie Magee

    Recently, our classrooms in grades 3rd – 5th received four iPads each! Furthermore, we are making plans to purchase an additional 12 iPads for upper school students to use during Study Skills classes.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Dear Brown School Family,

    I wanted to share with you the photos of our Homecoming Kings and Queens. (Click the PDF version of this message below to see the photos.) Historically, we’ve crowned winners from our elementary and our high school for a number of years. This is the first year that we’ve crowned winners from our middle school. Elementary and middle school winners were selected through an essay contest. High school winners were chosen by a vote from their peers.

    High School Students – Matthew Sato and Molly Abate

    Middle School Students – Gael Martinez-Morison and Rose Mattingly

    Elementary School Students – Sophie Garrett and Jaxton Tolliver

    Congratulations, students!

    Inclement Weather Information
    Due to inclement weather, there are times when the school district will adjust the school schedule, or cancel school completely. Because the school district has jurisdiction over the start and ending of the school day, the Brown School must adhere to official starting/ dismissal times.  Please refer to the listed directions in how Brown will respond to changes in school starting / dismissal times.
    School is Cancelled:  If the JCPS cancels school for the district, the Brown School will be closed as well.  All school activities and athletic events are cancelled. This includes practices as well as home and away athletic events
    Early Dismissal:  If the district chooses to dismiss school at any early time, this will be the official end of the instructional day. Brown follows the dismissal time given for middle/high schools.  High School students will be dismissed at the early dismissal time.  Middle and elementary school students will be dismissed at the early dismissal time with parent permission, or picked up by the parent.  No middle or elementary child will be dismissed from school early without proper transportation home. All parents are urged to pick up their child at the announced early dismissal time.  When school is dismissed early, all after school activities are cancelled.  Decisions on athletic events will be made by 2:00 pm. 
    Delayed Opening:  If the district chooses to begin the start of the school day at a later time, the official beginning of the instructional day will begin after the delay (ex: If on a two-hour delay, Brown will officially begin at 10:00 a.m. rather than 8:00 a.m.). Parents are advised not to drop off students until at most 30 minutes before the start of the delayed school day. (ex: If on a one hour delay, drop off students beginning at 8:30 a.m.)

    Inclement Weather Information
    Due to inclement weather, there are times when the school district will adjust the school schedule, or cancel school completely. Because the school district has jurisdiction over the start and ending of the school day, the Brown School must adhere to official starting/ dismissal times.  Please refer to the listed directions in how Brown will respond to changes in school starting / dismissal times.
    School is Cancelled:  If the JCPS cancels school for the district, the Brown School will be closed as well.  All school activities and athletic events are cancelled. This includes practices as well as home and away athletic events
    Early Dismissal:  If the district chooses to dismiss school at any early time, this will be the official end of the instructional day. Brown follows the dismissal time given for middle/high schools.  High School students will be dismissed at the early dismissal time.  Middle and elementary school students will be dismissed at the early dismissal time with parent permission, or picked up by the parent.  No middle or elementary child will be dismissed from school early without proper transportation home. All parents are urged to pick up their child at the announced early dismissal time.  When school is dismissed early, all after school activities are cancelled.  Decisions on athletic events will be made by 2:00 pm. 
    Delayed Opening:  If the district chooses to begin the start of the school day at a later time, the official beginning of the instructional day will begin after the delay (ex: If on a two-hour delay, Brown will officially begin at 10:00 a.m. rather than 8:00 a.m.). Parents are advised not to drop off students until at most 30 minutes before the start of the delayed school day. (ex: If on a one hour delay, drop off students beginning at 8:30 a.m.)

     

    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,

    As Brown School has done every four years, students will have the opportunity to watch part of the presidential inauguration ceremony in class. Teachers will be able to stream it in classrooms and it will also be airing in our school library.

    Liz Byron, our upper school Social Studies department chairman shared with our staff yesterday, “No matter your opinion on the election, we need to share these momentous points in history with our students to inspire them to be active citizens. The United States is one of the few places in the world that witnesses a peaceful transfer of power every four years. Please allow your students the opportunity to witness this event. This will hopefully open the door to discussions in your classroom about the traditions of U.S. inaugurations, who is present at the inauguration, and what the inauguration means.”

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Dear Brown School Family,

    Good things are coming our way! Last night the JCPS Board of Education approved a new District Facilities Plan that includes a $48.8 million remodel of the J. Graham Brown School. I was informed earlier this school year that Brown would be receiving all new windows during the summer of 2018. The remainder of the remodel has yet to be scheduled but we are looking forward to the improvements to our facility.

    We are also making further progress in acquiring the Martha Ellison Peace Park, across the street from our school. Our district and city officials have a draft contract drawn and are working our the final details. Our goal is to have the park fenced in and a walking track poured by the end of 2017. Once we obtain the park, our PTSA will be engaging our entire school community in fundraising efforts to install playground equipment for various ages, raised planting beds, and true outdoor classroom space for upper school students. The park is going to be a wonderful addition to our school and will be used by all grade levels.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Angela, Principal

    Dear Brown School Family,

    Today is a quiet snow day at the Brown School without our students filling our halls and classrooms. Our custodians have been busy clearing our sidewalks and spreading salt in anticipation of school tomorrow. If we have a snow day tomorrow, you won’t need to worry about our classroom pets. I always make sure that they have enough food and water for the weekend and that they are in a warm location. I do know that our pets miss the faces and sounds of the students on these very quiet days.

     Dear Brown School Family,

    It's hard to believe that the first semester is drawing to a close! It's been such a busy week for our younger students with pajama day, field trips, and classroom celebrations. It's been an even busier week for our older students with long term projects due and final semester exams. I hope that everyone can enjoy a relaxing winter break!

    The Brown School office will be open over winter break from 7:00 to 3:00 each day. We will close early (noon) on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, and will be closed on Christmas and New Year's Day. There will be no weekly emails over the next two weeks. Keep in mind that the majority of our teachers and staff, including assistant principals and guidance counselors, will not return to work until January 3rd and might not have access to email.

    If your elementary student has brought home a star student certificate or a student of the month certificate, their photograph is on our website! Visit www.mybrownschool.org/bears_month to check it out.

    Have a terrific holiday season!

    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.
