Principal's Message

Dear David Brewer Families:

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and you are as excited to get the year going as I am.  I am entering my second year as the principal of David Brewer, and I could not be more excited to be back.  We are all excited to build off the positive things we started last year.  

Please remember that the doors will open at 7:45 and breakfast will be served until 8:10.  At 8:15, we will start our Morning Round Up. After that we will begin our normal school day.  Please make sure you have your student to school before 8:10 if they plan on eating breakfast.  

We will be implementing some new and exciting things this year to help make all students successful this year at David Brewer.  One of those things will be starting down our path of becoming a “resilient” school and making our students resilient.  I will be sharing more information about this in upcoming parent newsletters.  

I am so happy to be back here at David Brewer and ready to get the year going.  Please remember that we are all here to help you make this experience as positive as possible. Please do not hesitate to ask for anything.

Fourth Graders Use Unique Activity to Study Spelling Words

Lee Griffin's fourth grade students at David Brewer Elementary used a new strategy to study their spelling words this week. One student would use their finger to trace a letter on their partner's back. That student then had to write out the spelling word on a white board and their partner would double-check to make sure the spelling was correct.
