A Note from the Superintendent - September 2017
It was a busy and productive summer at the Brinnon School.
- The District coordinated with Jefferson County YMCA to provide five weeks of summer school. The YMCA provided a morning literacy program that included plenty of outdoor learning. The afternoon, provided by the District, focused on reading, math, and learning through technology. The YMCA grant funded a free snack and lunch for each student.
- Much of the interior was painted over the summer. We posted three paint samples on the wall during summer school and all adults who came through the school were asked to vote. The winning color combination looks fantastic!
- Our historical pictures look great in our newly painted hallway. There are also some new upgrades to the hallway that showcase our students and their work.
- Our library has a new and updated look.
The school year is off to a great start.
- The District was awarded a Washington Reading Corps grant, valued at approximately $140,000, and we were able to employ THREE Washington Reading Corps members. They are very effectively supporting classroom instruction, particularly in the area of literacy.
- Our numbers continue to climb! Our levy funds a preschool program. That program has ten students now and it seems to be growing daily. We have 68 students K-8, an increase of 28 students in the last three years. We have enrolled 16 new students this year.
- The teachers are excited about our new math curriculum. It is engaging and includes many important components. You are welcome to come view the curriculum at any time.
- Our P.T.O is large and active. We encourage you to get involved. Contact the school for information.
- Technology is a strength for our District. We have added more computers and all teaching stations have been updated.
- We are installing new white boards in all classrooms.
- We applied for a renewal of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable grant. We received funds to provide a healthy snack for our students four days a week.
- A certified art specialist will provide 12 art classes for our students throughout the school year.
We are looking forward to a successful 2017-2018 school year at the Brinnon School. Take a look at our upcoming events and join us. We encourage our families as well as our community to be involved.
