BROWN, CAIN, HIGGINS AND STANTON-SMITH ARE WINNERS IN ACADEMIC RODEO
The East Texas Fair Academic Rodeo is a competitive event that is open to public, private and home schools across the entire East Texas area. The mix of academic and fine arts contests range from individual to group opportunities and from presentation opportunities to written contests; and in return, allows children’s gifts and talents to be promoted. Whitehouse ISD Elementary schools entered six of the events: Art, Mathletics, Mindset Breaking Experience, Science Fair, Writing and Youth Fashion Show with the help of the Academic Rodeo sponsors, Keri Baskin and Ashley Whitman. Individual events such as Art, Science Fair, Writing and Youth Fashion Show required students to compete at a campus level first.
BROWN ELEMENTARY NEHS CHARACTER EDUCATION TEAM SAYS NO TO BULLYING
The NEHS at Brown Elementary is in our second year of our Character Education Team Program. These students have teamed up this year to send the message that bullying in our school will not be tolerated. The teams put together skits, plays, songs, puppet shows, chants, etc. and go into Pre-K through 3rd grade classrooms to help the students understand the ways students bully and the ways that you can handle bullying. Karagan Coggin, our Character Education Coordinator, says, “I love going into the younger students classrooms and helping them with problems they may be facing! We even help them understand the difference between tattling for the small stuff and tattle about someone that is being a bully.” The students love being able to help out their fellow students. They all agree that this is a major problem in our school systems today and we all have to help in the fight against bullying.
BROWN'S SCHOOL STORE IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Each year, Brown Elementary looks forward to our Student Council’s School Store and this year is no different! Each Tuesday and Friday the Store is open, selling fun and functional school supplies at great prices. Not only do our students enjoy shopping at the store, all money raised will be used to benefit our school garden again this year!
BROWN'S THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE MUSICAL A HUGE SUCCESS
Brown Elementary’s third and fourth graders recently presented an adorable musical called “It’s Saturday!” under the direction of our music teacher, Mrs. Terry Shaw. The students worked so hard practicing, singing and preparing for their performance and it really showed! Many parents, friends and family members came to show support for our talented group of young students. Yet another job well done at Brown Elementary!
