Welcome to Brookwood Elementary

Dear Families,

“It’s a great year to be a Brookwood Bobcat!”  As the Principal of Brookwood Elementary School, I want to welcome you to our school.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive parents.

This will be my seventh year as Principal of Brookwood Elementary School.  The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful. I am a lifelong educator who brings a firm commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.

Our staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team. To help each child achieve to his/her fullest potential, the school provides both enrichment and intervention supports for students. We believe in knowing each child by “name and need.”

Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education benefits the child. These benefits are higher levels of academic achievement, positive attitudes, and greater maturity and responsibility. Because the benefits are so solid, I urge you to take part as much as possible in the life of our school. It does take an entire village to raise a child. Your assistance as a volunteer would be extremely valuable to our students. Consider becoming a school volunteer. There are many areas where your help would be appreciated.

We are excited about renovations at Brookwood.  You may notice the construction in the parking lot this summer.  That's right; we have a new parking lot that aligns with our mission, "Safety First"!  Our parking lot is safer for students and families.  In addition to our new parking lot, our newly renovated gym floor has given our building a "facelift" and adds to the morale and pride of Brookwood.  It looks AMAZING!  We are so fortunate and blessed!

We welcome all our families back to another exciting school year 

Educationally yours,

Lorenzo Bradshaw

A message from the superintendent
Dear parents and community members:

It is with great enthusiasm and appreciation that we announce the passing of the Kentwood Public Schools Bond request. Our community has considered this opportunity with a great deal of care and interest, and has responded in support of our students, families and the broader community as partners in supporting excellence in education.

Kentwood has always been a district built on fiscal responsibility, demonstrating prudent management of public funds. We are committed to continue to exercise this same responsibility with the funds generated by this proposal. This community decision will allow us to address our district’s needs in safety, technology and operational efficiency for years to come. Kentwood Public Schools values the partnership that’s been built with the community and respects their financial support. Together, we will continue to do great things.

The Kentwood Public Schools remains committed to providing an education of excellence to every child that we serve. Each teacher and staff member at KPS seeks to partner with our families to ensure that positive relationships are developing within the school environment and that high expectations are reflected in the arts, athletics, and within each of our academic programs.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of our schools and community.

Michael Zoerhoff
Superintendent Kentwood Public Schools
