From The Principal

We have a lot of fun activities planned this month for our Browning community. We are looking forward to our Fun Run, October 20th, which is a shared fundraiser with our PTA this year. Out goal is to have a donation of $5 per child or $80 per family for the the goal of $20,000. All students will be able to participate whether they donate or not. "Shout Out" can be purchased for $2. All pledges are due by Wednesday, October 18 and all donations go directly to the school. There are many incentives for the children, including me shaving my hair into a Mohawk if we reach our goal. Please join us for our PTA sponsored Trunk or Treat on October 27.
