Families, we often hear questions about what you can do to help your child with learning. One resource that all students have available to them at home is Study Island. You may use this link https://app.studyisland.com/cfw/login/ to take you to the site. Your child should have his/her username and password from school.

When visiting GBE, please remember to use our new entrance that leads directly into the Office area. This entrance is used from 8:45 to 3:45. Car riders still enter at the car rider door beside the gym between 8:15 and 8:45. If students arrive after 8:45, then they need to be signed in by a parent/guardian through the new Office entrance. Also, note that visitors should follow the traffic flow that starts at the cafeteria end of our building and exits by the new school sign.
Our TN Dept. of Education has launched a new website that has many resources for TN families and students. Please take time to use them if needed. www.kidcentraltn.com
Gene Brown Elementary is honored to be one of TN's first Reward Schools for student progress. That means our students were in the top 5% in the state for the academic progress that they made in the school year 2011-12!
Reminder that our school day starts at 8:45 and ends at 3:45. Doors open for students at 8:15. Only students that are in the YMCA Fun Company program should be in the school before 8:15.
