Mr. Bradshaw, Principal
What an exceptional start to the school year. We are so excited that you have made Brookwood your school of choice. “It’s a great year to be a Brookwood Bobcat!” I’m sure you have noticed our new parking lot. Not only does it look amazing, but the purpose of the redesign is to keep our students safe. Please review the map and expectations for our parking lot. We need your help keeping our students and families safe by adhering to our drop off/pick up procedures.
Calling ALL Brookwood Dad’s, Grandpa’s, Uncles, and adult male figures. WE NEED YOU!!! Grilling and Chilling with Dad’s is Thursday, September 17th from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Moms and the rest of the family get the opportunity to be served by the dad’s. Dinner will be served from 6:00pm – 6:30pm and the remainder of the time we will spend family time having fun with the family engaging in reading activities. This is a fun night for the entire family. Any men interested in grilling, serving, set up and tear down, please contact the office.
Get your "It's a Great Year to be a Bobcat T-shirts” today. Come on and show that Bobcat pride. T-shirt order forms have been sent home and if you need another form please call the office.
Have a great day and if you need anything our ears, hearts and doors are always open to you.

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.
All visitors must sign in with the office and receive a visitor tag before continuing into the building. This is for the safety of all students.
If you would like to come in and speak with your child’s teacher, please call ahead to set up an appointment. Communication is important between parents and teachers, but when teachers are in the middle of lessons it is not always possible for them to stop teaching if someone pops in. We appreciate your cooperation.
Newsletters will be generated bi-weekly. To save on paper we will be emailing the newsletters to those families who have submitted their email addresses during registration. A hard copy will be sent home with those families who do not have email.
Please call the office with any questions – 616-455-0030.
