Welcome to Browne Education Campus

Principal Dwight Davis of Browne EC










A Message from Principal Davis
Greetings Browne Families,

As you all may know, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. In an effort to honor all of the hard work of our scholars and educators, I am asking that you please take a moment and send your child's educator a note of thanks or a video sharing how much you appreciate them. This small token of acknowledgment does wonders for the hearts and spirits of our educators.

Families, I want to thank everyone who made it out to support our "Enrollment Fish Fry," "Garden Club, and Produce Distribution. All 3 events were a great success. Thanks to everyone for your help and support to our community. Please don't forget we have another enrollment event schedule for this Wednesday. We will have fun activities and a food truck ready to serve all families who enroll. Come out and have some fun at Browne on Wednesday May 5th, 2021. We will begin at 11am and conclude at 2pm. 

We invite all of families and community members to join us for our Browne Community Conversation this Wednesday May 5th, 2021 at 4pm. During this conversation we will be discussing family wellness. Join us for an informative conversation about family wellness and self-care. It is our hope that all who attend leave with information and resources to support our community's wellbeing.

Lastly, families, there is still time to sign your scholar(s) up for our Summer Acceleration Program. If you are interested in you scholar being exposed to great educators and fun learning experiences, please sign up today using this link. Our school day will be full of fun and exciting learning opportunities for our Browne scholars, small group learning opportunities in reading and mathematics, and participation in PE and Dance. 

Sincerely,
Principal Davis

Browne EC Calendar
Thought of the Week
“Societal wisdom would suggest that the best way to address difficult issues is to ignore them- and certainly not to talk about them. Such a position- to avoid using particular words or to avoid certain topics- can actually result in unexamined mind-sets and practices that can leave teachers feeling hopeless.”
H. Richard Milner

Browne Value of the Month
Accountability

“We hold our students, colleagues, and families accountable regardless of ability or professional status. We think empathically before we speak and/ or act being mindful to take responsibility for our actions and consequences.”
