Hello, can anyone tell me about Snow Days at Browne??
Looking at the possible snow this week and wanted to be prepared just in case.
Looking for Franklin who was in the 1st grade back in 1989.
Thankful Thursday post from our Browne Academy student!
I am trying to contact the head or marketing director of your camp. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) I would greatly appreciate it!
What's the Browne Academy Bruin doing at the Luau?! So much fun!
I am trying to contact the director of your camp. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) I would greatly appreciate it!
I'm looking for a good photo of the Greystone building and campus. Does anyone have one they could share with me? All I've been able to find so far are images of just the Greystone building alone.

Happy Juneteenth!

Also known as Freedom Day, Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. This pivotal moment in American history occurred when news of freedom finally reached the last group of enslaved individuals in Galveston, Texas.

On June 17, 2021, the United States Senate unanimously passed a bill to establish Juneteenth as a federal holiday. President Joe Biden signed the bill into law the following day, on June 18, 2021. This national recognition underscores the importance of this historical moment and its ongoing significance in the fight for freedom and equality.

Juneteenth is now celebrated and observed across the nation, offering an opportunity for all Americans to reflect on this critical chapter in the nation's journey toward equality and freedom. For more information about Juneteenth and its history, you can visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture's Juneteenth page here:

Last night, the 8th Graders had a heartfelt goodbye dinner full of laughter (and a few tears) to celebrate Graduation. 🍽 The 8th Grade students, along with many of the faculty and staff who have taught them throughout the years, gathered at the Belle Haven Country Club to commemorate their Browne Academy journey. As a long standing tradition, the 8th Grade teachers did an amazing job coming up with limerick poems for each student. The night concluded with a beautiful video highlighting each 8th Grader's journey which was produced by our very own Mr. March! Congratulations class of 2023! ❀🐻

Nurse Naik absolutely loved the story 2A wrote for her, what a special surprise! ❀️❀️

πŸ“Έ: In 2A, students just finished reading Gooney Bird Greene. In the book, a second grader teaches her classmates how to tell exciting stories. We used all of Gooney Bird's writing tips to create our own creative class story. The students selected Nurse Naik as their main character. After working to add interesting details and engaging dialogue throughout the beginning, middle and end of the story, they illustrated it and presented it to Nurse Naik as a gift. The kids loved hearing her read their story aloud!

We will always cherish the lasting friendships between these grades!
