School Clubs at Brownridge

  • Our Rainbow Loom club meets once a week to make bracelets which they are selling at school events to help raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. Students in grades 4-8 are working towards this truly amazing goal!
  • Our Eco club is starting on October 25 for students in 3-6. Students will support our school in making decisions that impact themselves and those around them.
  • Our Colouring Club for mindfulness for students in grade 1-6 will be starting in early November. What a great way to relax and be mindful.
  • Our Student Voice Club for students in grades 7 and 8 is working hard to prepare for assemblies, PLT’s, and more. They are capturing student voice with the intent of improving student well-being at Brownridge.

Equity and Data

Staff spent the morning of the PA Day examining a variety of data sources through an equity lens. We considered how our lived experiences impact our perceptions and biases. We also worked through developing equity goals based on the different data sets to support student achievement and well-being to inform our school improvement plan.
