Mr. Bradshaw, Principal
Thank you to all parents and volunteers that made our Rio Carnival a success. We could not have done the carnival without your support. The students still cannot stop talking about the carnival. Thanks for making this event a memorable experience for our Brookwood students and families.
All Brookwood Families attend conferences. Conferences are an opportunity to share celebration and successes and partner to address student concerns. We need your support and we will do whatever it takes to conference with our Brookwood families. I look forward to seeing you at conferences. If you need any special accommodation or support attending conferences, please so not hesitate to give me a call or stop by. See you next week during conference.
If you have a kindergarten student or know of anyone looking for a Young Fives or Kindergarten program, we have the right classrooms for you. Our kindergarten program is a nurturing and safe environment where all students learn and grow. Please mark your calendar! Kindergarten registration will be held on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7:00pm. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
