Happy New Year to Everyone!
May the New Year bring much joy and happiness as we achieve our goals!
Let's continue to work together to promote "The Brown Deer Way" our character education program that is making a positive impact on the lives of our students, families, and community. When I bring visitors to our schools they always comment on how nice, polite, and how well-behaved the students are. We have given over 50 tours this past year, as alumni, community members and educational leaders, have all wanted to see first-hand our impressive learning spaces. Thanks again to all of you who have supported the construction project as it has created a great source of pride for our students and community.
Campus renovations continue with the final landscaping of our new regulation soccer field this spring, new trails for safer access to both schools and beautiful way-finding signage. Signs will be installed this spring and with the sidewalks on Dean Road now completed we hope to see many students walking or riding their bikes to school.
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
