Van Brunt Elementary
It's hard to believe we are starting second semester! It has been a great first half of our school year and I am looking forward to a wonderful second half. Students are excited to share the great books they are reading and interesting things they are learning in class.
In the month of January, students completed MAP testing in reading and math. Most students made great progress in their learning. Please take a moment and ask your child if they met their learning goal. This is also a great opportunity to ask your child about their goals for the remainder of the year and their plan for accomplishing these goals. We know that approaching learning with a growth mindset helps students work hard every day.
The Van Brunt staff appreciates the continued support of our wonderful families. The open communication and partnerships are so valuable to your child's education. As always, please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Congratulations to our January POPS Winners!!
Thank you to our wonderful band members for leading us in celebrating our January birthdays! We appreciate your time and talent.
Drop Off/Pick Up
- In the morning, please pull over when you let your children out of the car. Do not drop off in the middle of the road.
- Please use the crosswalk. Do not allow students to run across the street.
- Use caution when in the parking lot.
Great Learning at Van Brunt!
We would love to have new people attend our PTO meetings. With our gum ball competition, 6th grade is in the lead with 22 and grades 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th aren't too far behind. Please find a way to participate in the PTO. We would love to increase our attendance!
We want our students to have fun and be safe at recess. Our expectations are that students keep their hands and feet to themselves and keep the snow on the ground. We have reviewed these expectations with students and are pleased with the choices students are making at recess.
