LP Brown's Kindergarten orientation will take place on Tuesday, August 30, from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
L.P. Brown, named after Leland P. Brown, former Olympia teacher, principal and twenty-six year Superintendent of Olympia Schools, is located in the northwest corner of Olympia. It serves approximately 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition, special needs children are served in the building’s autism program, and the Infant Toddler Programs.
The school was originally built in 1965. In 1968, additions were made to the school, which included the library and a six-classroom wing expansion. In 1978, the multipurpose building was expanded, increasing the size of the gymnasium. In 1986, a covered playshed structure was constructed. Separate areas for the bus and parent drop-off, a set of new student lavatories and fire sprinklers for the main building were completed in September 1997. The addition of six classrooms in a new wing and a remodeled music room was finished in January 1998, giving L.P. Brown a total of 18 classrooms.
During the school year, L.P. Brown provides space for the YMCA’s before and after-school childcare, and evenings find the building used for sports activities by the YMCA and Olympia Parks and Recreation, as well as school and community meetings.
District achieves many successes in 2015-16
The Olympia School District is proud of our students and staff who achieve amazing successes every day. In an effort to recognize and celebrate those achievements both inside and outside the classroom,we have compiled a 2015-16 Accomplishments list. The list includes academic, athletic and extracurricular accomplishments that involve members of the Olympia School District community.
This will be an evolving document, changing as we learn of new reasons to celebrate student achievement, continuous improvement and 100 percent commitment to quality in our district. In September of 2016, we will begin a new list for the 2016-17 school year.
Capital HS Math Teacher Carol McKay named Capital Region 2017 Teacher of the Year
Capital High School Math Teacher Carol McKay has been named 2017 Regional Teacher of the Year by the Capital Region Educational Service District (ESD) 113.
McKay has been a teacher for 10 years, having spent the first part of her professional life in engineering and marketing positions. McKay said she was ready for a change and, having been raised by two teachers, knew the impact they made on students’ lives.
During her tenure as a teacher, colleagues say McKay has worked tirelessly and successfully integrated her technical, problem-solving and communications skills into a successful career in the classroom. In a recent thank you note, a student wrote to McKay, “Thank you for being one of the best math teachers I ever had…your teaching style and constant support for all of your students are what make you great.”
