Fire Prevention Week was a huge success… The students were very inquisitive about all the fire engine’s equipment. They had an opportunity to sit behind the steering wheel and ask questions about the tools used to combat fire. At the end of their tour, they all received a fire helmet and made honorary fire fighters.
"Where Children Matter!"
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Brownstone. We educate students with special needs who require educational supports and intensive counseling to develop positive social and emotional interactions and ultimately gain the ability to self-monitor personal growth and development. The school program is designed to offer a structured learning environment to ensure that its students are equipped to handle the challenges of learning, appropriate decisions, and are prepared to solve problems effectively. By combining our Behavior Management System, curriculum and technical support, we can meet the social/emotional needs of each student in addition to them developing their self-regulation skills.
Activities to promote literacy are infuse throughout the curriculum and students are engaged in meaningful practices which relate to enhancing their individual skills. Through the standards and project based learning, activities reflect rigor and complexity through specific learning expectations that meet each students’ needs. Our curriculum approach is to provide the foundation for the universal and critical thinking skills that will enable Brownstone learners to contribute effectively to a global society.
It is Brownstone’s goal to continue to provide the students with a safe, supportive environment for them to continue to grow in their ability to read, promote positive interactions and build the skills necessary to become independent. We will be providing workshops during our PTA meetings to better inform parents on how to enrich their children’s learning experiences. Therefore, we ask that every parent be an active and regular participant in our PTA. Through collaboration and improved instructional practices and community building, we will continue to make Brownstone a place “Where Children Matter!”
Have a great school year.
David Perez, Principal
