New Britton Elementary - May 13, 2016

Principal's Message

Dear Bulldog Families,

We have had another wonderful week of teaching, learning, and fun at New Britton. We celebrated our young authors on Tuesday. What an amazing time at the Bulldog Beach - reading, writing poetry, laughing with friends, listening to music (The Strolling Strings from FJH and a soloist from FHS), and spending time as a learning community. Our students were really proud to share their writing with the most important audience, our families. Thank you for attending this culminating event for our authors.

Although we are wrapping up our school year, we still have important learning left to do. Please continue to encourage your student to do his/her Bulldog Best every day. As always, thank you for partnering with us in education! Have a fantastic weekend.
