Working Together to Make a Difference!!


June 23,  2014

Hello Brayton students, parents, guardians, and families!

Please remember that the final day of the school year will be Tuesday, June 24 with an 11:30 a.m. dismissal for the students.  Report cards will be sent home with the students on Tuesday.  Students will also receive a letter with their report cards about the Moby Max Summer Math Challenge.  All classes have been enrolled in the on line math program at Brayton and the feedback has been very positive from students and teachers.  Please encourage your children to continue improving their math skills by using this on line program during the summer months at home.

Thank you to Mrs. Lawson and Ms. Sprague, as well as the grade 3 students, for taking on the leadership role in the project to plant vegetable gardens in the new beds.  I appreciate their effort and diligence to lead this project during the spring.  Thank you to Mr. Baran and his students at the Greenhouse for constructing the new garden beds, and also to Jennifer Munoz for her continued support of this project.  We have been working to install new outdoor cameras to monitor the main entrance, as well as the garden beds, to deter the vandalism that has occurred in these areas during recent years.  Please help us in our effort to monitor our school and keep it looking beautiful.

We had a great turnout at Brayton for the kindergarten orientation on June 12.  It was wonderful to see the families and students making the effort to attend this daytime event to meet the teachers and prepare for the upcoming school year.  If you have not registered your child for kindergarten, please contact the Superintendent’s office at your earliest convenience to start this process and help prepare your child for the transition into kindergarten.

Thank you to everyone for welcoming me into the Brayton community this year.  I have enjoyed getting the opportunity to work with the students, staff, and families this year and I look forward to many more years working together to provide our children with a quality education.

I hope you all have a relaxing, safe summer, and please continue reading during the summer months.

Thank you,

John Franzoni
