Thank you for a great first week of the 2014-2015!
Welcome everyone back to school!
It's been so refreshing to start the year with completed building construction and teachers/students in their places. We started teaching and learning day #1 and we are off to an excellent beginning. We have an amazing staff who has worked diligently over the summer to prepare for a very positive start.
Campus renovations continue with the final landscaping of our new regulation soccer field, new trails for safer access to both schools, and sidewalks on Dean Road to be completed this fall. Please take special care when driving around our campus during drop-off and pick-up times as we are thrilled to see so many students, families, and staff walking or riding their bikes to our schools.
Impressive improvement of academic progress continues as we eliminate achievement gaps and are in striking distance of exceeding state expectations on school report cards. More to follow on this as state reports are released. We look forward to our continued partnership where student learning is our first priority to champion a culture of excellence - it's the Brown Deer Way!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.
Yours in Education,
Dr. Deb Kerr
