On behalf of our entire staff, welcome parents and guardians to the 2019-2020 school year. At Brier, we are passionate about the opportunities that lie ahead for our students with regard to learning this year.  Our dedicated teachers, support staff and administration are dedicated to ensuring high levels of learning in a safe and positive environment. Our commitment to excellence, embracing high expectations for all, holding students and ourselves accountable and encouraging character education, scholarly habits and restorative practices is what propels our school toward continuous success. We will put forth every effort to ensure all students reach their academic and affective potential. It is because of the aforementioned that Brier was the recipient of the 2015-2016 California Gold Ribbon Award of Excellence and the Gold Ribbon Award of Excellence for Title 1 schools. 

Providing a safe and healthy learning environment is our number one priority. Thus, we work diligently to impart the importance of showing respect, making good decisions and problem solving. This promotes ownership, self-esteem and positive character and teaches life skills that are imperative to success. We are proud to be a green school where recycling and composting is part of our daily routine.

At Brier we recognize the importance of the partnership with school and home. Each family plays an integral role in a child’s education. Research indicates that when families are engaged in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of reaching academic success. When students see their parents taking a daily interest in learning activities and participating in school activities, they grasp the importance of school. Thus, we welcome parent volunteers and encourage all parents to become active participants in their child's education. We are looking forward to another year of celebrating our students' growth and successes.

Please join with me in our effort to make Brier the absolute BEST school it can be!
Warm Regards,
Mrs. Williams
