Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to Brewster Elementary! I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. As we begin a new school year, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support and partnership in nurturing a positive learning environment for our students.

At Brewster Elementary, we are committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and respectful space where every child can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. Our shared values of respect, responsibility, and kindness lay the foundation for an enriching educational journey that empowers our students to reach their fullest potential.

Respect: We believe that respect is the cornerstone of a harmonious school community. Our students are encouraged to treat one another, teachers, staff, and the entire school community with kindness and empathy. By embracing diversity and valuing each other's unique qualities, we foster an environment where every individual is valued and included.

Responsibility: Instilling a sense of responsibility in our students is crucial for their personal growth. We encourage our young learners to take ownership of their actions, choices, and learning. As parents, your partnership in nurturing this value at home further reinforces the importance of responsibility in all aspects of their lives.

Kindness: A culture of kindness forms the heart of our school. Our focus on kindness extends beyond the classroom, promoting a compassionate and caring attitude towards others. Together, we can create a ripple effect of kindness that positively impacts not only our school but also the wider community.

Safety: The safety and well-being of our students are of paramount importance. We maintain a secure and nurturing environment where students can learn, play, and grow with confidence. Our dedicated staff is committed to ensuring the physical and emotional safety of each child, partnering closely with parents to provide a protective haven for their educational journey.

Partnership: As partners in your child's education, your involvement is invaluable. We cherish the collaboration between our school and our parents, knowing that together, we can make a significant difference in our students' lives. Your engagement, support, and active involvement in school activities create a strong foundation for their success.

We look forward to a fulfilling school year filled with joy, curiosity, and growth. Through the next weeks more communication and special school community events will be offered to our families. Please continue to monitor your email and follow us  @BrewsterRCS on Twitter for updates and celebrations. Together, let us celebrate the achievements of our students, nurture their talents, and guide them towards a bright future.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at or 248-726-3300. I welcome your input as we continue to improve and create the best learning experience for our students.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. We are excited to embark on this journey with you!

With Brewster Pride,

Mrs. Kelly E. Dessy
