Welcome to Browne!

  • Dear Browne Families and Community Members,

    Welcome to our Browne Elementary community of learners.  We are excited to have the opportunity to work and learn alongside our 320+ Browne Bears on a daily basis.  It is our goal and hope that every child that enters the doors at our school feels respected, cared for, and challenged academically by our highly skilled team of educators.

    Our staff hopes that your child’s school experience will be happy, productive, and full of engaging and rigorous learning experiences. Our students deserve our very best daily efforts. We want our students to dream big and to be prepared for their future! Together, our high expectations and support will help every student reach his/her full potential as a student and developing young community member.

    We want all students to be prepared to successfully pursue a post-secondary career or educational pathway of their choice.

    Browne Elementary is a learning community where we want students to learn to work hard in pursuit of their big dreams and goals. Your child’s school success is highly dependent upon the relationship that exists between parent, teacher, and child. On-going collaboration between the home and school is essential to your child’s academic, social, and emotional success. We invite you to be involved at Browne Elementary, so we can partner around showing your child the value and importance of a successful school experience.

    At Browne we welcome and encourage parent volunteers to get involved in a variety of ways. If you are interested in supporting our learning community this year, please stop by our school office at any time to fill out the necessary volunteer paperwork. Also, please reach out and let our staff know how we can support your efforts at home. During this current COVID impacted year, our ability to have volunteers inside our school is not permitted, but parents can still talk with our teachers about other ways you can support the classroom from home.  Next year, we look forward to being able to re-open our doors to volunteers as our world, community, and school move toward a more typical way of operating.

    Should you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please feel free to call our office at 354-2400, or stop by at any time. My door is always open, and I welcome your participation and feedback.

    I look forward to partnering with you to ensure your child has a successful school experience.

    Sincerely,

    Paul Gannon
