"Where Children Matter!"
It is hard to believe we are only three months away to the end of this school year. Brownstone has made great instructional strides in preparation for the PARCC and the students have been remarkable in maintaining the pace of instruction and projects.
Through the use of Project-Based Learning we continue to challenge the students to take ownership for their learning and to become knowledge explorers and lifelong learners. Our school-wide PBS program keeps the students on track to earning special acknowledgment during our monthly assemblies such as “Student of the Month”, “Student of the Week” and other school-wide awards.
Please be reminded that as the weather gets warmer, we ask that students respect the dress code and put away their electronics upon entering the school building. Students are constantly reminded to continue to make wise choices and display good citizenship especially to and from school.
We would like to give a special thanks to all our parents for their participation in making our Book Fair another yearly success. Parents are encouraged to participate in our free CAPE workshops located in Paramus and to please read the notices sent home by the teachers as this is for you to interact with your child and discuss his/her progress.
Through our instructional practices and community building, we will continue to make Brownstone a place “Where Children Matter!”
Have a great rest of the school year.
David Perez, Principal
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!
As we begin our journey we are excited to share some of our upcoming events. October 6-10 we'll be designated as "Week of Respect" and October 20-24 we're observing "School Violence Awareness Week". Our focus will be on how we can keep our kids safe, healthy, and in a positive learning environment. The Core Curriculum Content Standards will intergrate concepts in all areas.
We will continue to hold the standards of HIB (Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying). The students will take part in group counseling, teamwork, and peer mentoring.
Our schools safety team will hold monthly drills to ensure the students and staff are prepared in an emergency. The students play an important role and we practice safety daily.
Have a safe and enjoyable new year and we'll keep you posted on any new events.

The whole school is excited about our upcoming Book Fair. An amazing selection of books is headed our way!
At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents.
Mark your calendar for our Family Event where the whole family can join in the fun. And, you can contribute books to your child's classroom library.
The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading.
Here's a brief video that highlights the big dreams that can be realized through family reading:
