    Principal's Welcome

    rainbow 003WELCOME!  2017-2018 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.  GO BEARS!

    Misson Statement

    The Staff of Margaret R. Brown Elementary believes that the School's purpose is to develop and nurture students' emotional, social, and academic needs.

    We Believe...

    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.

    Vision Statement

    Our children are most successful when the school, the home, and the community work together for excellence in education.
