Welcome Lucille Brown Middle School families and friends! Please read our announcements for this week:
MAP Testing: Beginning September 25th through October 6th, students in grades 6-8 will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of math and English. Your child will take the tests on a computer.
Back to School Night: Our Back to School Night event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, 2017. You may pick up your child's schedule between 5:30-6:00 and then join us for our formal program, which begins at 6:00.
Senate Page Leadership Program: The Senate of Virginia is accepting applications for the 2018 Senate Page Leadership Program until Friday, October 20. The Senate Page program offers a unique experience for students to witness the General Assembly in action! Participants have unparalleled insight into the legislative process while they learn to be better leaders and more active citizens. Pages must be Virginia residents, between the ages of 13 -14 years old, and be in good academic standing.
Due to the volume of applications, all applicants must complete an online application for consideration. For more information about the Senate Page program, please click here.
Next Up: NextUp registration begins Monday September 11th and runs through Friday September 22nd. Through this fun and exciting after school program your students will have the opportunity to cook, dance, act, build robots, learn how to play chess, investigate a crime scene and even build their own app!
