T.A. Brown Elementary
the Best School in Town that is College Bound!
June 8 - June 25, 2015
Thanks through a reading grant, the TA Brown Library was open during the month of June. Students had the opportunity to enjoy wonderful activities while enjoying some good books. We created a lot of wonderful things in our Makerspace like masks, stop animation movies, puppets, comic strips, book marks, picture holders and much more.
Please see our Twitter page for more posts. A big thank you to the Assistance League of Austin for donating books to our summer library participants.

TA Brown honored our Volunteers with a dinner and performance. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our teachers, students and school.
Thank you Doss Elementary!
Our sister school hosted our 1st and 5th Graders at Doss Elementary for an author's visit. 1st Grade got to see Jerry Pinkney and 5th grade saw Marc Barnett. The very generous PTA from Doss Elementary bought our TA Brown scholars copies of the author's book. Reactions from students where, "OMG! Thank you!" and "I wanted this book!"
We are grateful for this partnership and our students are super stoked to have their own autographed copy.
