 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 child in need, please come into school and take a suggestion tag off the tree.  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 Wednesday, December 17. Please wrap the gift and attach the tag to the gift.
