Principal's Corner

Welcome Back

Dear Parents,

The Brunson Faculty and Staff want to welcome back all of our students.   Brunson Elementary had another wonderful year last year.  Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their time off with a chance to vacation and rest.  We have a lot of events and new curriculum planned for the students this year.  Some of the things students can look forward to:

- At least three plays are scheduled this year (The Snow Queen, Oliver Twist, and Hansel & Gretal).

- Thanks to Mrs. Tracey Preston’s husband, Robby we have some additional Kindergarten playground equipment and the big playground has been cleaned up.

- We still have after school activities such as; Girls’ Chorus, Steel Drum Band, Drama, Art, Volleyball, Basketball, Robotics, and many other interesting activities.

Brunson teachers made it their goal last year to teach the students how to use close reading strategies when tackling difficult text.  As a result, there was an overall 10% increase in our Reading Spring MAP test results.  This year our teachers will continue to focus on reading, using the same skills that were successful last year.  One thing I have discovered here at Brunson with our parents support, our students can accomplish anything we put before them!
