If you accepted the invitation to add the Earle Brown Building Calendar to your Google calendars you will not only have access to what is happening in the building each day, but also will be able to see when it is Snoopy Day (besides today, of course!), or Charlie Brown, Franklin, or Peppermint Patty?! Try it. You'll like it!

Tomorrow is Friendly Friday!

When you receive the following photo in your email from a colleague (look to the sad babies on the right) you know it is ON for tomorrow and this Sunday evening. (Disclaimer: that photo is not approved and only shared in The Daily 411 to alert everyone that there are some cheesy folks among us who may need a reality check tomorrow.)


Please remember that tomorrow is Friendly Friday (see teams listed below) which also means it is School Spirit Day. We all know that means we wear our school color....PURPLE Pride, baby!

Earle Brown Shout Out's...

Thank you for making this week wonderful!


Minh Strusz has been doing a TON of work behind the scenes to make things go smoothly for the FAST proctors, in addition to proctoring herself!

~ Recognized by Rebecca Nygren


Geronimo Orozco went above and beyond with a little first grader who was very scared and in tears. He calmed her down, stayed patient all while helping to reinforce school policy and structure.

~ Recognized by Mykella Auld


Huge appreciation to Chundra Walton, Transportation Operations Supervisor, who not only provides us with daily transportation updates but also brings support to Earle Brown as the worry and stress of beginning-of-the-school year bussing is heightened.

~ Recognized by Sherrill Lindsey

Yes, it is sad but true. Our bathrooms are becoming a huge issue again this fall.

Our custodial team continues to find huge unnecessary messes in many of our bathrooms. It is imperative that we continue to teach all our students of our expectations for using and caring for the bathrooms. Staff should also do random checks throughout the day to ensure mayhem has not struck. Thank you for reteaching and holding students to high expectations with our shared space.

Well it is. One of the spools was broken off and is missing. It is in need of repair.
