    Dear Parents & Guardians:

    Happy New Year!   I hope you all had a relaxing and restful winter break.

    As the season of unpredictable weather approaches, please be sure all your contact information is up to date on your Realtime parent portal so that if the district notification system is activated for closings, you will receive announcements in a timely and efficient manner.

    January’s Character Education bulletin board topic is Kindness.  An essay from each class was selected by teachers to be displayed.   Your children have written some wonderful compositions about how they show kindness to their friends and fellow Briggs students.  What a great way to start off a new year!


    We are always adding new events to our Twitter page.  We hope you will check it out on a regular basis.  (https://twitter.com/briggs_school)

    Reminder: January 20th Schools will be closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.


    Dr. Michael Valenti
