To our wonderful Brown School families,
Our school year has gotten off to a fantastic start! Our Back to School Night and our Dog Days of Summer family barbeque were great opportunities to celebrate the important connection our school has with all of our families.
I shared with your children recently that Brown School did an outstanding job on last year’s California Standards Tests and we have much to celebrate. Using the Academic Performance Index (API) as a base, the state set a 5 point goal for our school and we were able to show remarkable growth, rising 21 points overall as a school. Our current API of 768 is thirteen points higher than it has ever been. I personally thanked the teachers, staff, and the students of our school for their incredible, hard work that they showed last year. Thank you, as well, to our families who are the foundational support for your child’s learning and for encouraging them to do well during state testing.
Other good news is that our modernization project, which has been a year- long endeavor, is winding down to a close. The modernized classrooms, cafeteria, library, and other areas turned out great and the new paint color for our school has been very well received. The completion of the kindergarten and first grade classroom area will be completed by Thanksgiving and all classes should be in their traditional places by January.
Brown School will continue to strive to provide a safe, welcoming environment where your child can succeed in academic excellence and prepare for their future academic and career goals. We will provide information, in the coming months, regarding the state’s transition to a new set of “Common Core” standards, to communicate school events, and give ideas for supporting your child in their future education.
If there is anything I can do for you or if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
