Mr. Bradshaw, Principal
We want to give a great big thank you to parents, staff and volunteers for their unwavering support for our Girls On The Run Team (GOTR). It was an amazing experience seeing communities across West Michigan support such an awesome cause for girls. This activity continues to create life changing opportunity for our girls at Brookwood. We are looking for coaches for next year. If you are interested, please contact Ms. Beth in the office.
The school year is swiftly coming to an end. Please monitor the calendar as there are still yet a few activities that our student will engage in. The following dates are events that are scheduled for our students:
May 27 Talent Show – 2:45
May 28 5th gr Field Day
June 3 All School Field Day
June 4 5th gr Graduation 6:30pm
For your information, Brookwood will be having several maintenance projects occurring over the summer. The gym floor will be replaced. Secondly, pending board approval, we will have our parking lot redesigned and reconstructed. Both projects will make Brookwood safer for our families, students and this community. Both projects are projected to be completed by the beginning of the 2015-16 school year.
As always, our doors, ears and hearts are always open to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns or compliments. Have a super week!
