Dear Parents and Families:


Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are.


Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.


Spring book fair dates and location: March 2-6 in the WBA library.


Shopping hours: The book fair will be open during school hours Monday-Friday (closing after the last lunch period on Friday), and extended hours during Moms and Muffins from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 am on Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5. Students will have an opportunity to shop with their grandparents during WBA’s Grandparents Day festivities on Friday, March 6.


NEW digital payment option: Book Fair eWallet! Now your student can shop the Fair cash-free! Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more, create an account, and add funds to your child’s eWallet (all unused funds are returned to you!):

Volunteer/Chaperone Requirements

If you foresee that you will do any volunteering on campus or attend a field trip as a chaperone, you must complete a background check. This is a requirement in MISD. A background check must be completed EVERY YEAR. A completed check will apply to all MISD schools, but it is very helpful if you choose Willie Brown Academy when you apply. If you have not completed a background check for this school year (beginning July 1), you will not be able to volunteer or attend a field trip. https://www.mansfieldisd.org/parents-students/campus-volunteers

Join REMIND

Please join the Willie Brown campus REMIND group! This is a fast and easy way for Principal Eastlick to get a message out to parents when needed. Your phone number stays confidential!
