Briggs Elementary School is located in the center of one of Florence’s oldest neighborhoods. Briggs has always involved our surrounding community in all that we do. The community is embedded within the school through various means. Not only does this include our faculty, staff, students, and parents, but it includes our mentors, school volunteers, community garden beds, and various outreach programs through local organizations. Briggs Elementary understands that it takes a village to raise children. We also understand the importance of showing our students that being an active citizen in the community is an important role. Please join us during our annual Taste of Briggs: Farm to School night to see exactly what we’re all about. We also love having community members mentor our students. If this speaks to you, please give us a call to get the mentoring process started.
