    Dear Florence Brasser Families;

    We would like to welcome students and their families to the 2020-2021 school year.  Lead Learners for this school year will be Principal Tim Young and Assistant Principal Rebecca Scott.  Mr. Young has been the lead administrator at Florence Brasser for the past 11 years.  Mrs. Scott is joining Brasser this year after serving 5 years as an assistant principal at the gates Chili Middle School.  We extend a heartfelt greeting as we commit to serving as your building administrators for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, this family handbook will be updated as we receive new information. Please keep this as a handy reference during the school year. The handbook will be available on our school website, accessed through the district’s website: www.gateschili.org once it has been finalized.

    Brasser Elementary welcomes the family–school partnership:

    • We look forward to working with families in providing opportunities for meaningful feedback and input in assisting our school.  How will you support your child and school in leading togetherwith us in making Florence Brasser the best school possible? 
    • 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. 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 will be expected to learn to take more ownership of their learning and will be provided opportunities to show their understanding in ways that make sense to them.

    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 continuing to develop our own understanding of cultural 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. Especially this year, we are asking students to be eager to learn and look to you, their parents, to provide the guidance, nurturing and support in collaboration with the Brasser staff to ensure that they will be successful.

    The Brasser learning community feels very 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 join us, come along side and be a part of the Brasser experience!
