Mr. Bradshaw, Principal
Dear Brookwood families,
"The weather outside is frightful and the snow is so delightful..." and winter- like weather has arrived. At Brookwood we embrace the snow and winter. We want our students to enjoy the elements of winter. Please be sure that students are dressed appropriately for the snow.
Students may only play in the snow if they have snow pants. Students that do not have on snow pants will have recess on the blacktop.
Parents, many of you noticed during conferences the amazing art work on the walls. If you have not noticed, please stop by and see the work our students have created. We have a super art teacher. Mr. Schorr does an amazing job keeping our building beautiful with students art work.
We want our Brookwood families to know we are thankful for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break.

If your child will be tardy or absent, please be sure and call the office at 455-0030! This is for your child’s safety. We want to be sure all our students are accounted for if they are not in class. Also, please be sure we have a current home, work, and emergency phone numbers in case we need to reach you.
Brookwood Wish List
Brookwood has a tree in the office with gift suggestions for members of our Brookwood families who are in need this holiday season! If you would like to purchase an item(s) for a Brookwood Family member in need, please come into school and take a suggestion tag off the tree. The tree will be up during Parent/Teacher conferences. If you are unable to come to school, please contact your child’s teacher or Ms. Diekevers, 616-455-0030, and we can give you some suggestions.
We know the holidays can be a difficult time for many of us. We thank you in advance for your generosity at this joyous time of year. Gifts need to be brought to school by Friday, December 11, 2015. Please wrap the gift and attach the tag to the gift.
