Hi everyone! Have you ever read the Parent/Student Handbook? It has SO MUCH useful information on everything from school phone numbers to drop-off times to volunteer opportunities for parents. Check it out!
Get in touch with your student’s teacher or the front office if you have any questions!
Happy summer everyone! School supply lists for the 2019-2020 year are here!
Have a great summer and we’ll see you in August!
Please check out this video that highlights this year’s 5th grade PYP Exhibition. It was created by DPS. They followed two groups to their excursions and interviewed them right as they prepared for their final presentations.
One of our 5th grade Exhibition groups inquiring into homelessness was highlighted on 9News. Click here to read the article and watch the video!
Donate to Brown Using Amazon Smile and Other Apps
Holiday shopping coming up? Did you know your Amazon purchases can benefit your Brown PTA, without you having to give it a second thought?
Go to smile.amazon.com, and search for “Brown International Academy PTA.” Select as your beneficiary, and Amazon will donate a portion of eligible purchases directly to the PTA, at no extra cost to you. Be sure to always open smile.amazon.com when you need to shop. (And tell your friends and family, too!) There’s even an Amazon add-on that will always redirect you to smile.Amazon.com.
Hopefully everyone has signed up for your Bloomz classroom sites, and started using the handy Bloomz app. (If you haven’t heard about Bloomz yet, be sure to get a classroom invite code from your teachers).
Bloomz is going to be a fantastic resource for Brown parents and guardians going forward. And to make things even easier, the PTA is moving our private Brown Yahoo Group to Bloomz as well. The new group is called the “Brown Parent Forum,” and every parent/guardian with a current Brown student is welcome to join!
The Brown Parent Forum on Bloomz is a secure, private source for communications, announcements and reminders from the PTA to all parents, as well as a place for parents to share school-related news and photos. Be sure to join, and don’t miss out on anything happening at Brown!
How to Join:
(1) If you haven’t already set up a Bloomz account: go to Bloomz.net and click “Join Bloomz.” Enter the invitation/access code, and enter the information requested. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to request a access code. Click “Join Group,” and wait for approval. Please note you will need a different code to join your child’s classroom. Check your “Home” screen on Bloomz for updates from the group!
(2) If you already have a Bloomz account: log in to Bloomz. On the lefthand side of the screen, click on “Add/Join Group.” Enter the invitation/access code, and wait for approval. Please email email@example.com if you would like to request a access code. Check your “Home” screen on Bloomz for updates from the group!
**The PTA will be shutting down the Yahoo Group. Be sure to join the new Brown Parent Forum on Bloomz right away so you don’t miss a thing.**
