Dear Florence Brasser Families;
“Together we teach and inspire excellence for all learners.” -District Mission
“Learning together, Leading together, Achieving together” -Building Vision
Brasser Elementary welcomes the family –school partnership:
Being we are beginning our second semester of school, we recommend taking time to talk with your children about his/her progress in school so far. Most students work very hard to do their best, and your acknowledgment is very important to them. For students who are struggling, your support and interest in their success is critical. We support your Right & Responsibility to inquire to the school about your child’s progress at any time. Other suggestions are: ask your child what they are most proud of and why; ask them what their greatest challenge is and how you can help them to succeed.
Please remember school attendance is critical to academic and social success! We do understand that there are times that students must stay home due to illness. However, when they are healthy, please send them to school! Teachers find that students who are present and on time every day have more academic and social success than their peers who are absent or tardy often. When they are not here, children miss very valuable instructional time and peer interaction, which has a negative effect on their learning.
There are so many wonderful things going on in your child’s classroom and we hope you have a chance to hear about them each day. As always, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, Mrs. Bello or Mr. Young if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to finishing this year strong by working with you and your most treasured resource... your child.

For years, schools have focused on equality, aiming to provide an educational environment equal for all students. In recent times, that paradigm has shifted to equity, that is, giving everyone what they need to be successful.
