Hi my name is Brynn Majewski and I am excited to be the Site Coordinator at David Hicks Elementary! I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from Eastern Michigan University in 2015. While I was in my undergrad I worked for Bright Futures, first as a SPI, then an SC. After I graduated from EMU I started a full time teaching job in Wayne-Westland Schools at Schweitzer Elementary! I loved my time teaching in the normal day setting, but after spending the last summer working for Bright Futures, I knew my heart was with the program and after school programming. I am beyond excited to be back with a program that does so much good for our communities, as well as continue to work in Wayne-Westland Schools. I look forward to connecting with students and families as well as supporting their day time learning!
EMU Bright Futures at Hicks Elementary serves second, third, and fourth grade students. We have a highly structured program with foundations of academic support and student interest-based clubs with daily focuses on being active, creative, and STEAM learning. Club offerings could include Zumba, Crafty Kids, Fitness Fun,Travel Club, and many more! As a staff, we strive to support our students’ continual growth in social and emotional learning, student voice, and provide the discovery of new academic experiences while cultivating a mutually respectful community for all students and families in our program. We at EMUBF Hicks recognize the importance of strong relationship between the family, school staff, and program. We actively encourage families to volunteer their time and skills with our students at program, and we meet quarterly for Family Meetings to engage parent and family feedback about program happenings. We also encourage all families to participate in school functions where we also try to volunteer our time! Here at EMUBF Hicks, we are incredibly lucky to have such a high parent and family participation in our program.
