Welcome to Our School!!!
WELCOME! 2016-2017 is going to be a wonderful year at Margaret R. Brown Elementary for both you and your student! We have many interesting and exciting activities planned throughout the year. The learning opportunities are limitless and all you have to do is have your child come to school and be ready to have fun and learn. We can’t wait to share our newly renovated interior spaces with your child as they work hard to learn and grow as a student and person. We have four brand new restrooms, sixteen new water fountains, and a new media center space to support your child’s learning in an increasingly digital world. In a continued effort to support each child we also have new small group instructional spaces to be utilized in a more individualized approach to teaching with children’s needs in mind. Parents provide us with an opportunity to work with amazingly unique individuals and we want to support their growth as individuals through our instruction and guidance. We take very seriously the opportunity you provide us to educate your child and we want to Thank You. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions. FIRST STUDENT DAY IS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 10, 2016! GO BEARS!

WOW!!! It is hard to believe that the first semester is coming to a close! At Brown Elementary, we have had a busy but wonderful start to the school year. We have worked together as home and school to provide our students with a powerful start to a successful year. The support of our families is a key component to the future we offer our students through education. The second semester will prove to be just as fast and furious as we push students to their fullest potential both socially and academically.
With the second semester approaching, we wanted to remind parents and students alike of the upcoming schedule. This semester we will have many celebrations, activities and the end of school good times. However, this all comes with the assurance of much work to be completed. We will assist students in a variety of testing atmospheres including but not limited to…WIDA (Language Acquisition testing), NWEA (a standardized testing module that monitors student growth), IREAD-3 (3rd grade basic reading skills assessment), and of course the ISTEP+ for all students in grades 3-5. These assessments offer our students an opportunity to step up and show just how hard they have been working and how much they have learned from their teachers. We will send out notices along the way of the upcoming dates and events as they approach. Please continue to support the education of your child by having them at school and on time.
So…as the Christmas Break approaches, enjoy the break from school and the extra time with family and friends. We will welcome back our students on Thursday, January 5th, 2017.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of our families,

The Staff of Margaret R. Brown Elementary believes that the School's purpose is to develop and nurture students' emotional, social, and academic needs.
- Because we acknowledge students as individuals we believe they all can learn: at different rates and in different ways
- Achievement can be accomplished through a safe environment where self- esteem and self-discipline are nurtured.
- All students deserve equal opportunity and should be taught tolerance of those different from themselves.
- We value our students and believe we can and do make a difference in their lives.
- The purpose of education/curriculum is to build a strong foundation for life long learning.
Our children are most successful when the school, the home, and the community work together for excellence in education.
