Mr. Bradshaw, Principal


A great big thank you to the Brookwood Dads.  Grilling and Chilling with Dads was a success and the food was outstanding.  Thank you dads for all of your support in making this event a memorable experience for our Brookwood families.

We need your help.  We want every family to participate in our B-Bop Walk-A-Thon Wednesday, October 1, 2014.  The money earned from the grand event is used to pay for field trips, class room supplies, and special activities for students.  This is also a fun day where we welcome families to come and motivate and encourage students to run, walk, or skip as many laps as possible.  We are still in need of volunteers for this festive occasion.  If you are interest, please call the school office at 616-455-0030.

Families, it is very important that students are in school for Count Day, Wednesday, October 1, 2014.  We look forward to every student being present that day and every day.

Have a great week

Mr. Bradshaw

 Absent Reminder

If your child will be tardy or absent, please call the office at 455-0030 ext 22501 or press #1.  You can leave a message any time of the day or night.  It is very important that the office also has current phone numbers.

Visitor Information

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.
