To celebrate Children's Book Week, Brown Elementary hosted a One School, One Book project. All students in grades K-5, whether attending school in-person or remotely, read Outside, Inside by LeUyen Pham and participated in corresponding activities.
Brown Elementary's Partners for Children partnered with Dead River Company and the United Way for the purpose of meeting the Thrive 2027 goal of giving every child quality early learning experiences. The funds from Dead River were used to purchase books and other literacy instructional materials.
Families and community members joined in on the fun by enjoying the Outside, Inside StoryWalk™ displayed on the fence at Brown Elementary School and around the playground of Brickhill Heights. They painted kindness rocks to help spread joy throughout the community. Those who enjoyed the StoryWalks™ were invited to take a rock, or leave a rock.
"The Brown School community has been experiencing these "unprecedented times" together and our perseverance over this past year deserves to be recognized and celebrated. Every class read the book and engaged in discussions around connecting to the text, caring for others, resilience, hope, diversity, and appreciation" said Principal Alexis Jones.
