SES Tutoring Parent Meetings @ LP Brown Elementary


LP Brown is pleased to offer free tutoring to students who qualify for free and reduced meal prices. Students don’t need to be performing below grade standard in order to access this service. Tutoring is focused on reading, math or both.  Each qualified student will have a $900 voucher to spend on an OSPI-approved tutor prior to 5/15/16. Transportation to and from tutoring is the family’s responsibility. Payments are made directly to the tutor.


Informational meetings will occur in the LP Brown library on 9/29/15 and 1/26/16 at 6:00 PM. Each meeting will last approximately one hour and will feature:

  • a brief introduction to this service
  • time to meet potential service providers in attendance
  • time to fill out and submit an application that includes your top three (minimum) service provider choices and an authorization for exchange of confidential information (this allows the school to discuss your student’s academic needs with the tutor).

Back to School Night Postponed

New date and time:

October 8, 2015

6:00 – 7:30 PM

Growth in student enrollment has caused us to hire more teachers at grades 2 and 4. While this is wonderful news and allows us to reduce class size, it also upsets the current classes. As a school, we decided to postpone this event to ensure all families can make the most of the event. As a reminder, Back to School Night is for parents and guardians, and is a time when teachers will explain the curriculum, procedures, and expectations in their respective classrooms. If child care is not available to you at home, feel free to bring your children. Spanish language translators will be on hand to assist as needed at this event. We are looking forward to seeing you.

Safe Schools Alert

Safety is our top priority.  SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web.  Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process.  Tips may be submitted anonymously.

If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.

About Us

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.
