Good morning everyone, on behalf of Brownridge, I am writing to say thank you to all of the volunteers who devoted their time, energy and smiles to support the hot lunch program at Brownridge by collating, collecting, sorting, organizing and helping our students. Not only is the program a great fundraiser for our school, but it brings people together.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  1. THE 2017-2018 BROWNRIDGE RECIPE BOOKDuring the 2017-2018 school year at Brownridge, we have focused on ensuring there is a feeling of inclusivity at the school by empowering our students to say “I belong here”. Part of our actions to help students feel connected to Brownridge has been to engage them in working toward common goals. One of these goals was to create the “Brownridge Recipe Book”.The Brownridge Recipe Book contains over 60 pages of Appetizers, Main Courses, Desserts, Meals for individuals with dietary restrictions and more. Each recipe in the book is a contribution from a student from Brownridge. Thanks to a financial donation from Public Health, the cost of our Recipe Book is only $10. You may purchase your very own copy of the Brownridge Recipe Book on School Cash Online. Recipe books will be available until Wednesday, June 20. There is no limit to how many books you may purchase.  Please see the attachments to view a couple of sample recipes. Sample Recipes
