Principal's Message

Principal Dwight Davis of Browne EC

Greetings Parents and Guardians,


On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Browne EC, we would like to thank all of our parents for coming out on Back to School Night. We had a wonderful time filled with raffles, ice cream, fellowship, and fun. Your presence and engagement made the night memorable. Thank you all so much for making BTSN a success this year.


Parents, as you know, extended day has begun for our middle school scholars. Extended day is an opportunity for scholars in grades 5th through 8th to receive enrichment opportunities. These opportunities take the form of additional academic support in English, Science, Social Studies or Math, creative writing, English as a Second Language (ESOL) support, and much more. Extended day is free to scholars, and sibling care is provided for the sibling of scholars in extended day.


As you all know, we are in the midst of completing our beginning of the year (BOY) assessments. These assessments are important because they let us know where our scholars are academically, and where we need to get them by the end of the year. Over the next few weeks teachers will be sending out invitations for academic parent-teacher team (APTT) meetings. During these meetings, the teacher will share how your child performed and review activities that you can engage with your child to help them grow. Please be sure to mark your calendar for your APTT meetings.


Parents, each year DCPS requires schools to conduct mandatory safety drills in an effort to ensure we are prepared for an emergency.  On Thursday, September 19, 2019, Browne EC will conduct a lockdown drill at 10:45 a.m.  During this time, visitors will not be allowed to enter or exit the building. This is a precautionary drill.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Principal Davis via email or by phone.  


Lastly, we would like to let all of our parents know that our first PTO meeting for the year will be taking place on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 at 6pm. Please join us as we work to make Browne, The Best School in the Nation.



Sincerely,



Principal Davis
