November 5th was the date to be had
The drinks were flowing and the venue was rad
The Fall Fling surely was a night to mark
With Darby Burger at the helm you could feel the spark

The parents were busy planting their bids
It was truly a blast, and yes, it was all for the kids
From the top of the mountains we shout and we scream
We stand up tall and thank you and your team


Community Police Officer Stather joined us at Brown P.S. for three days this week. She spoke to students in Kindergarten, Grade 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 about various topics. These topics ranged from Internet Safety to Bullying to Traffic Safety, depending on the age of the children.

We feel so fortunate to have these great community helpers in to speak with our students.

Trashy Tuesday - Another great success with beautiful weather. We ran out of gloves again and had a huge crew of children beautifying our Brown Environment. We were impressed by how little trash there was to pick up! Thanks to all of the JK/SK/GR1 and GR2 children that participated. Next Trashy Tuesday is December 1st!

Walk to School Wednesday - Walk while you can! The weather is beautiful and so are the leaves. Enjoy these mornings with your children discussing the beauty of the colours and inhaling the aromas of autumn.
