SBAC TESTING

SBAC Testing will begin May 2nd and end May 30th.  This is for grades 3rd-5th.  Please check our website for the testing schedule.  We would appreciate that all appointments be scheduled on days that do not conflict with your student’s testing.  Thank you.

 

IS YOUR CHILD NOT RETURNING TO LP BROWN – CURRENT K-4TH GRADE

As we make plans for the next school year, we need to begin collecting information about the number of students who will be at each grade level.  If you know that you will not be returning to LP Brown, please let Britney in the office know.

 

TEACHER ASSIGNMENT WILL BE POSTED ON FAMILY ACCESS FOR THE  2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR

Remember to sign up for Family Access so you are able to view your child’s teacher assignment for the 2017-18 school year.  Family Access will be available to view your teacher assignment on Thursday, August 30th after 10:00am.  If you need access to Family Access, please contact the office at 360-596-6800 or the Olympia School District at 360-596-6150.  Also, did you know you can view your child’s food service balance, test scores, report cards and attendance with Family Access.

 

 BOX TOPS

Box tops will be collected from each classroom on the last Thursday of each month and the class that brings in the most each month will receive a popcorn party.  Please watch for some sheets being sent home for the students to put their cutout box tops on.  This makes things a lot easier for the box top coordinator when counting them to redeem.

 

BROWN’S WORLD

Next stop for Brown’s World testing on 5/25! Parents, please help your child study the maps, which will head home in early May. You can also find the maps at the link below. Thanks for helping your child foster a greater understanding about and appreciation for the world in which we live! 

And, if you are available to help test students on 5/25 from 9-noon, please send an email to christybezanson@gmail.com. Thank you!

FROM OUR NURSE:

Hi there! My name is Willow Maia Fulling. I am an almost one year old Labradoodle (Labrador and poodle). I was born on 04/28/2017 in Battle Ground, WA. My mom is a Nurse (RN) and picked me because she was looking for the perfect Therapy Dog. I am mellow, kind, loving, gentle and completely non-shedding and hypoallergenic! My mom says that is the most important part because she works with people who have allergies and Asthma. This means I won’t cause allergy or asthma “flare-ups”. My Dad has both and has not been able to have a dog in 46 years. Then I came along and no allergy symptoms or asthma.

 I have also been receiving specialized training since I was 10 weeks old. I went to 8 weeks of puppy obedience class then straight to class with a private trainer. I have been working with my trainer 5 days a week since then. I was one of the youngest pups to ever take the AKC Good Citizen test at Petco and pass the first time! I just recently received my Therapy Dog certification through Therapy Dogs International, TDI.

I go visiting in hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters and schools. I love school the best! I am so excited to get to come to LP Brown on occasion. I love to be read to, I like helping with math, I am part of social studies programs and Geography too! I do not get to go on the playground or in the cafeteria those areas are for kids and staff only.

I also understand that not everyone likes dogs and I don’t get my feelings hurt. I just stay in my kennel if you don’t want to see me.

My “office” will be in the health room with my mom. I will have a kennel in her office on the days I am visiting.

I can’t wait to meet you.

Willow
