Your Weekly Update from Brown Elementary School
This past Monday we had an all school Assembly where we revealed how many food items we brought in for the Natick Service Council food pantry. Our goal was to gather at least 1,000 items. The Brown School community brought in over 2,101 items for the food pantry which will help provide needed meals for those in need. Thank you for your amazing support of this worthwhile cause.

Five Things You Need to Know
1 - CONFERENCES
Conference time is upon us. Our staff look forward to the opportunity to speak with you and share the good work students are doing here at school. Your classroom teacher will be sending out more information regarding sign-ups with dates and times that are available. If you haven't seen a communication about this yet, please keep an eye out, as it should be coming soon. Our next conference day is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov 16th. This is an Early Release Day.
2 - HELPING ALL YEAR ROUND
At our assembly on Monday, we talked about how families in our community need help all year round in a variety of ways, not just at one particular time of year. I let students know that they can donate to a food pantry, or help out with other community issues, at any time of year. It is always appreciated.
3 - SOLVING PROBLEMS TOGETHER
We had five 3rd grade students speak at the assembly about our 4th Core Value: Solving Problems Together. Our brave students shared their ideas on what this looks like everyday in front of over 500 classmates. There were rounds of applause. Great job to all of our 3rd grade speakers.
4 - STRESS AWARENESS MONTH
November is Stress Awareness month! This article from the Mayo Clinic provides us with some ideas to effectively address stress in children at school and at home. On a daily basis, Brown School implements many of these techniques with the support of Everyday Speech (our new social-emotional learning curriculum) and supplemental material and activities developed by teachers.
