Volunteer Appreciation Program
Thursday, April 23, 2015
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.
