Principal's Message

I would like to welcome you all back to the 2013-2014.  

After my first year, I can share that Earle Brown School is a truly special place! People care about people here.  Whether my discussions have included details about special care that a student may need in order to be successful or if it included the care that staff share for one another, I have been so impressed!  I feel very lucky to have been brought here!

Throughout this summer our staff have been working on professional development activities; which included Math, Literacy and English Language Learner training.  Many of our staff have also been the facilitators at these professional trainings.  We have a very talented crew!

The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Earle Brown has years of experience and commitment in supporting students and staff.  We can forge ahead and build upon the success that is so obvious around here!  I urge you to become involved at Earle Brown!  All parents are considered members of our PTO.  There are literally hundreds of ways to be involved in PTO activities in both big and small ways depending on the amount of time you have.  You may want to consider working with the International Baccalaureate Parent (IB) Advisory Committee.  There are also many opportunities to help in the classroom, with field trips, and attend some or all of the many school events.  As you know, Earle Brown’s IB education program is rooted in our community’s respect for the dignity and integrity of all our students and families.  We believe in keeping promises to our students and their families.  We are proud to be on the forefront of creating IB leaders for our community.  We are committed to working collaboratively with you and with one another to provide results oriented instruction that focuses on the success and achievement of every Earle Brown student.  We are counting on each and every parent to partner with us to continue our work to raise the challenge bar and close the achievement gap.  Our shared mission is focused on the work we do together to encourage the social, emotional, and academic growth of all our students.  Nothing motivates a child more than when learning is valued by schools, families, and the community in partnership.

We send home important information about events each week in student Thursday Folders.  From time to time we must send home important information with students outside the Thursday Folder, so it is a good idea to check for these special folders in your child’s backpack daily.  Other places for news and information include the school website, marquee, and the bulletin boards and flyer rack near the office.  We may also occasionally make automated or personal phone calls to all parents so it is important we have current phone numbers. 

The staff and administration are eager to welcome you to another wonderful year!  On behalf of the Earle Brown Staff:  Welcome to 2013-2014!   Let’s get ready to LEARN!
