Brier community to the 2016-2017 school year. Our entire staff is excited to have your children in our school learning community.
We are looking forward to another year committed to ensuring high levels of learning in a safe and positive environment. Here at Brier, we are all committed to excellence, will hold our students to high expectations, and encourage character education and scholarly habits I believe strongly that when students, teachers, parents, administration and support staff work together, students will succeed. I will put forth every effort to ensure all students reach their academic and affective potential.It is because of the aforementioned that Brier is the recipient of the 2015-2016 California Gold Ribbon Award of Excellence and the Gold Ribbon Award of Excellence for Title 1 schools.
Providing a safe and healthy learning environment is our number one priority. We also continue to use our Eight Great Traits character education program and Scholarly Habits to to help build self-esteem, positive character and teach life skills that are imperative to success. We will continue to fill each other's buckets with caring words, acts of kindness, and positive thoughts. Please join with me in our effort to make Brier the absolute BEST school it can be!
The Brier community will ensure high levels of learning for all students in a safe and positive environment.
Living up to Brier's mission statement is very important to our entire staff. The dedicated teachers collaborate regularly to plan and implement a variety of instructional strategies to meet the diverse needs of our students. Full implementation of the Common Core State Standards will ensure high levels of learning as there is much critical thinking and problem solving in all areas of the CCSS! Intervention classes occur during the day as well as before and after school to support our emerging students. The Brier Brainiacs program for grades 3-6 is offered after school. This program assists students with homework and extends recreational and enrichment opportunities such as dance, science, and art. Please see the link under "Activities."
At Brier we recognize the importance of parent volunteers and encourage all parents to become active participants in their child's education. There are many opportunities for families to attend activities at Brier this year. I invite you to view other links on this site, including the classroom teacher link. We are looking forward to another year of celebrating our students' growth and successes. Please contact me if you have questions or concerns at 510 657-5020.
