SES tutoring and public school choice discontinuation
Due to the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act, this is the last school year (2015-16) that the Olympia School District is offering Supplemental Educational Services. Supplemental educational services were tutoring services provided outside of the regular school day for eligible students at Title I schools. The end of the 2015-16 school year also marks the end of Public School Choice opportunities at the same Title I schools. Students who were previously approved to attend a non-boundary Public School Choice school will be allowed to continue at the non-boundary school through the fifth grade; however, no transportation will be provided to the non-boundary school.

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.

Bridges elementary math curriculum achieves highest EdReports rating
The following is a message from the Olympia School District’s K-12 Teaching and Learning Department sharing exciting national news about the Bridges elementary math curriculum. This week marks the end of the second year of the curriculum’s use in elementary schools throughout the Olympia School District.
A huge thank you goes out to all of the teachers who were on the elementary math adoption committee in 2013-14. Another thank you to our elementary teachers and the incredible work they have done with the implementation of Bridges. EdReports recently evaluated Bridges, and the Math Learning Center’s Collin Nelson relays the exciting results in the following report:
“Bridges in Mathematics Second Edition was evaluated by EdReports and met all three major criteria at each grade level. This places Bridges among the very few programs that have achieved the organization’s highest rating."
