Brown School Welcomes Over 300 ‘near and dear’ Guests
Brown Elementary School in the Hazelwood School District opened its doors to those near and dear to students. More than 300 parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and neighbors were among those who participated in the fourth annual “Near and Dear Day.”
During Brown’s near and dear event, students are encouraged to invite family and friends to school for a unique opportunity to tour the facility and spend time in the classroom with students.
Upon arrival, special guests gathered in the gym room for continental breakfast and a brief welcome by principal Matthew Phillips. Then guests were escorted by fifth grade ambassadors to their child’s classroom to participate in special activities with their student.
“Overall, this year’s Near and Dear Day was a tremendous success. It’s always a pleasure to welcome our parents and community to Brown Elementary. We are proud to showcase our building and staff and to share the wonderful ways that our students are achieving academically,” said Phillips.
“In an effort to further encourage community involvement, we’ve recently launched a volunteer reading program, Men on Mission. This is an attempt to provide additional positive male role models for our students. If you are interested in participating, please call the school office at 314-953-4100,” he said.
