Your Weekly Update from Brown Elementary School
It was wonderful seeing you all on Thursday evening for our Open House. Thank you for being involved and coming to hear about all the great things that are happening here at Brown. We look forward to many more conversations about students, learning and more.
Please remember that there is No School on Monday, as it is Rosh Hashanah. A happy and healthy new year to all of our families who celebrate.
Also, mark your calendar - Picture Day is on 10/4 this year.

Five Things You Need to Know
1 - BALL IN THE HOUSE
This past week we had a visit from a singing group called Ball In the House. They sang acapella for students while at the same time sharing information about the history of music from the 1700s and 1800s. All of our students had ball!
2 - SCHOOL COUNCIL
If you are interested in joining the Brown School Council, we currently have one open spot. Our meetings are held once per month in the evening, in person or, on occasion, virtually. We are a great group of committed educators and caregivers doing great work for our school. Please email email@example.com if interested. More than two interested community members will result in an election run by our Brown PTO.
3 - ATTENDANCE / BEING ON TIME
As part of my Open House address, I talked about attendance and being on time. When students are present at school, they feel prepared and learn more of the curriculum. Please ensure that your child is here everyday and that they are on time. School begins at 8:30 and students are expected to be in their classrooms at that time. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
4 - REQUIRED YEARLY FORMS
Required Yearly Forms are past due. You would have received an email from PowerSchool today if we have not received your form. To receive help accessing your child's form or if you would like assistance completing your form, please contact Karen Cushing at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange translators to assist with this process.
5 - HALLOWEEN
Many families have already asked if we will be continuing with our typical traditions on 10/31. While we have started many conversations here at Brown about this particular day, and we will continue these conversations, we will be having our typical traditions here this year. No changes. More information to follow.
All the best to our families,
Aidan McCann, Principal
