"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.

Brownstone Raises $300 for CHD Coalition
A big thank you to Stacey Barbosa's 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at the Brownstone School in Saddle Brook. They recently held a bake sale and donated the $300 raised to the CHD Coalition.
Stacey's son, Graysen, has Tetralogy of Fallot and had open heart surgery as an infant. Today, at almost 3 years old, Graysen is an active happy little boy. Thank you Stacey and students at the Brownstone school!
Our trip to Wendy’s was a huge success. The Principal and selected students participated in an outing to Wendy’s for lunch. Students had the opportunity to order their own lunch and interact with each other while enjoying their meals. The big menu items of the day were chicken nuggets and fries. A couple of students ordered a “Baconator” and we couldn’t believe they ate the whole thing!
We finished our lunch with a nice creamy frosty….. Students were very excited and eager to earn their points for the next trip. We always look forward to going out with our Principal.
Smooth riding to Brownstone!
The bus groups have been serving more than great seats. The students have become team players with a growing sense of family and help each other in the ride. Each month the number of students receiving awards has increased and we are seeing fewer bus incidents. Brownstone works closely with the families and bus companies to ensure all rules are being enforced.
Together we can keep our children safe!
Keep up the great work!
