    • We look forward to celebrating great accomplishments together.  How will you work with us in supporting your child’s academic achievementgrowth?


                    Academic excellence has always been an expectation at Brasser Elementary and we will continue to strive to achieve these expectations. We will focus on three important goal areas: instructional technology, student-centered learning, and social-emotional learning. In preparing students for their future, we will continue to embrace 21st century learning opportunities. This could include, but is not limited to, integrating technology and STEM into our instruction.  We embrace the use of technology to enhance our curriculum and engage students. Students in grades 1 through 5 will be provided their very own laptop to extend their learning beyond the four walls of the classroom. Also, our kindergarten students will have  2 to 1 access to technology. Students will be expected to take more ownership in their learning and will be provided opportunities to show their understanding in ways that make sense to them.

                    Student-centered learning is about valuing all the different ways students learn and promoting the teacher as a facilitator of this learning. We will continue to focus  on highly effective instructional practices aspiring on the following questions: What do we want each student to learn? How will we know when each student has learned? How will we respond when a student experiences difficulty in learning?

                    Finally, just as reading, writing, and math are important in school, so is social-emotional development. We want our students to learn skills and attitudes to help them manage emotions, build positive relationships, demonstrate empathy, and set goals for themselves to achieve success.   We will be supporting this work by implementing a school-wide positive behavior incentive system and continuing to develop our own understanding of diversity and inclusivity. Relationships are at the heart of understanding student behavior and culture.

                    We will provide this in a safe, warm, nurturing setting based on our Brasser Way – Respect, Responsibility, Compassion and Hard Work. We ask students to come to school eager to learn and look to you, their parents, to provide the guidance, nurturing and support to ensure that they will be successful.

                    The Brasser learning community feels privileged to be a part of these important years during which we will have the opportunity to work with you and your most treasured resource…your child.  Brasser Elementary is a great place for learning.  We invite you to come and be a part of the Brasser experience!
