Principal's Message

Admin Team

Dear Brookfield Families,

We can hardly wait until next Friday (8/19) to greet all of you during our Open House event. It will be wonderful to see familiar faces and meet some new ones, too! Speaking of new faces, our newest families attended our New Student Open House on Thursday – it was great to meet some for the very first time! Thank you to our amazing PTA who produced smiles with popsicles on the playground! We continue to be grateful for our generous and dedicated community.

Teachers have been in the building this week setting up classrooms, planning great lessons, and reconnecting with their colleagues - now all we need is students! Grade level teachers will be reaching out on Wednesday, August 17, to greet students in their homeroom class. They can hardly wait!

Enjoy the last week of summer and know how excited we are to welcome everyone back to Brookfield!


Ellen Mukai, Principal

The Digital Resources Consent Form

The Digital Resources Consent form  grants permission for your child to use instructional technology resources like Flipgrid, Padlet, and Kahoot (a full list is here). Many of our teachers plan exciting lessons that incorporate these tools, and we want to make sure your child can participate.  Please take the time to fill out the form today - it takes only a few minutes.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Kevin Feighery (kbfeighery@fcps.ed). If you are having issues with the form, this page has directions on how to fill it out.
