Support Brownell through the LPS Foundation Fund for Excellence

The most direct way to support Brownell students financially is through the Brownell Fund for Excellence. This fund has provided more than $13,000 to Brownell students through field trips, classroom celebrations, student emergency needs and more. Help us raise $2,500 this year. Please give at: http://foundationforlps.org/donate/. Thank you!

Classroom Movement Breaks

During the 2015-2016 school year, teachers have been intentionally having students move more.  Through cooperative learning, brain breaks, and stretching exercises, students are getting more movement in during their day.  Some examples might be doing jumping jacks while skip counting, pretending to dribble basketballs while practicing spelling words, having classroom leaders lead fun movements, dance breaks, or organized movement videos such as those found on gonoodle.com.  Ask your child what movement they did in school today!
