The Brittan Acres Walk-A-Jog (WAJ) is a wonderful tradition dating back 35 years and our biggest community event of the year. This is a fantastic event for the whole family! The students run, jog or walk around the BA blacktop, which provides a unique opportunity for the school community to gather while exercising and spending quality time together. Join friends and families for a casual carnival with food and games. We hope every BA student can participate!
The San Carlos School District is proud to announce that all six of its elementary schools have been selected to receive the 2023 California Distinguished School Award - Arroyo Upper Elementary, Arundel Elementary, Brittan Acres Elementary, Heather Elementary, Mariposa Upper Elementary and White Oaks Elementary.
On Wednesday, we will be celebrating all things SCEF as the San Carlos Education Foundation’s fall “SCEF DAY” has moved to November 30th to align with Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a day that encourages people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
With the holidays drawing near, we would like to invite you to extend your holiday giving by donating a grocery store or toy store gift card, such as Safeway or Target, to be given to a Brittan Acres family in need this year. We are collecting gift cards now and will distribute them to families for their holiday celebrations. Thank you to our community for helping with this yearly tradition to make sure that all families feel supported during the holidays.
Brittan Acres is a wonderful neighborhood school that prides itself on educating the whole child. As a TK-3rd grade school, we focus on providing a positive learning environment where student needs are a priority. The focus is on engaging students in authentic learning experiences that include collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, communication and citizenship. Brittan Acres includes a diverse group of educators, parents, and students who work towards a common goal and vision that is innovative, engaging, and collaborative and focuses on meeting the needs of every child.
This year, we’re focused on the following key areas as we continue to implement our Strategic Plan:
* Build and maintain a sense of community and belonging * Learn and implement practices that create equitable learning opportunities for students and focus on equity and inclusion * Create and implement engaging curriculum (Reader's/Writer's and Phonics Workshop, Math in Focus, STEMscopes Science) * Consistent and supportive collaboration among teachers, students, and parents * Continuing to foster the 5C’s through innovative practices (STEAM)
