To The Retta Brown Family,

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year! I expect GREAT things!!! Thank you for choosing Retta Brown. I know and you know we are the BEST in TOWN!!! This school year, I look forward to watching each and every student in our school persevere and grow. I am excited to see them strive for excellence and to push themselves to be the best they can be.

Parents and guardians, we need your help. Talk with your students about what they are learning. Read to them and let them read to you each and every day. Find ways to get involved. We are so thankful for each and everyone of you.


You are capable of so much, so please work hard and do your best. Make strong choices and lead by example. Believe in yourself. Be the best you, you can be. Don’t try to grow up too fast. Enjoy being a kid. Harold S. Kuschner once said, “When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world.” So be kind and make a difference in the world.
