As a parent, would you like a keener awareness of your child's social media? Interested in seeing how your child portrays him/herself on Twitter? Please join Principal Brian McCann at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8 as he hosts a Twitter 101 opportunity for our Case families. You can sign up for an account here. We will highlight some of Twitter's functions, model how to Tweet, and finally how to view your child's digital footprint. Pre-registration is limited to 21 families. RSVP with Pauline Simmons at psimmons@swanseaschools.org by April 7. Don't be left behind -- become a connected parent.

International Student Hosting Opportunity
As part of the school districtís effort to expand its global education program, we have partnered with the Cambridge Institute of International Education to bring up to five international students to Joseph Case High School for the 2015-2016 academic year!

As part of this initiative, gphomestay, a sister company of the Cambridge Institute of International Education, is offering an incredible opportunity to families in Swansea.† If you are interested in making a positive impact on the life of an international student, consider becoming a host family!

Host families will be given a substantial stipend for providing students with meals, a private room, and for welcoming the students into their homes. 24/7 support will be provided from residential coordinators to help coordinate meeting your student upon arrival, keeping you connected with the school community, and mediating issues if they arise. Families of all types, ethnicities, backgrounds and sizes are welcome.

To learn more about becoming a host family, please contact info@gphomestay.com (781-996-0429) or fill out an online application: http://www.gphomestay.com/Application.html.

Principal's Message
Dear Students and Families of Brown School,

It is our hope that this website lends easy access to updates and information on activities taking place in our school. One of our main goals is to develop strong communication ties with the parents/guardians of our students. This website is another way to reach out to you as we continue to work in partnership toward enhancing each child's educational experience here at Brown School.

Your involvement and interest in your childís education will help us to do our job more effectively. As the year progresses, you may have questions or concerns that arise, we encourage you to contact the school and speak with those who might be of help. If you have questions with in-class events, please ask to speak with the teacher.†Please feel free to contact me directly with any concerns regarding, but not limited to, the overall program, curricula, or building wide activities at 508-675-7892.
†† Thank you for your continued support!

Student Drop-Off/Pick-up Procedures

Our morning and afternoon student drop-off and pick-up procedures have changed slightly from last year due to the expansion of a new driveway and drop-off/pick-up area, side lot to the left of the school.

Morning Arrival/Drop-off
All student drop-offs between 8:15 AM. and 8:30 AM will take place in the side parking lot area to the left of the school (south side). Students are not permitted to be dropped off prior to 8:15 AM This parking area has a separate entrance from the circular driveway in front of the school.† During this time, only buses, faculty members, and vehicles displaying a handicap placard will be allowed access to the driveway directly in front of the school.† Parents are asked not to park in the circle area in front of the school as there are numerous parking spots in the side parking lot/drop-off area available.† When dropping students off, it is extremely helpful and more efficient if the driver pulls as far forward as possible in the designated drop-off zone, so that as many vehicles as possible can unload simultaneously onto the playground area.†
If your child arrives to school after 8:40 a.m., please park in the lot to the left of the school and escort your child into the building, using the front main entrance.

Afternoon Pick-up
The student school day ends at 3:05 p.m.† Parents picking their child up should park in the side parking lot area and enter the building through the second back door of the building near the gymnasium.† The hallway outside of the gymnasium will be the parent pick-up location. †Parents must remain downstairs in the lower lobby to ensure the security of the building.† E. S. Brown School Staff will not allow parents to enter the building prior to 2:50 p.m.† Parents must have a government issued photo I.D. to verify their identity and to sign a child out.† If anyone other than a parent/ legal guardian will be picking a student up, the school must have a note notifying the school that the studentís parent/guardian is allowing this person to sign the child out.†
The students must remain our top focus at all times, especially during unstructured times such as dismissal. Your anticipated cooperation is greatly appreciated.†
