Here is some info to know:

  1. Our Move-a-thon is happening on Tuesday, May 8. Bounce Entertainment will spend the entire day at Brownridge getting kids physically active and feeling positive. The move-a-thon is a big fundraiser. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 to begin our Modern Learning Journey and create the classroom of the future. Envelopes were sent home earlier this week. There are over thirty prizes eligible to be won (including an Apple Ipad Air with Apple Care and a 32GB Ipod Touch 6th Generation).

  2. In planning for next year’s classes, it is most helpful to know if your child or children will be attending another school in September 2018 (high school not included).  If your child(ren) will not be returning, please let your child’s teacher know.  If your child currently attends Brownridge PS. and you have moved out of the school’s attendance area, please contact Mrs. Sacke at the school office. Mrs. Sacke will advise you on how to make arrangements for your child’s September placement at their new school.

Red, orange, pink, green, purple, blue and more…..  Colour House teams have come to Brownridge, what colour are you?  Introducing at Brownridge……Colour House Teams!  The Colour House Teams are a way to bring a sense of inclusion and belonging under one team colour.  Once a student has been assigned a Colour Team, they are on that team for their entire Brownridge journey.  Students will earn points by showing spirit on school Spirit days and by competing in a variety of exciting competitions.  We are excited to bring this amazing Team Building experience to all of our students at Brownridge!  We Belong Here!
