Principal's Message

Dear Brookfield Families,

Thanks to each of you who attended our Portrait of a Graduate family event on Wednesday and Thursday evening. It was great to play games with you and see the smiles on our students faces as they greeted friends in the hallway.

Thanks, too, for your tremendous support of Brookfield's book fair! We appreciate everyone who shopped and especially those who volunteered to assist with sales. We couldn't offer this opportunity without you!

Over the next few weeks, we hope to see you coming in for teacher conferences. We appreciate you taking time from your busy schedules to connect with your child's teacher and hope you are finding the meetings valuable. It isn't too late to sign up for a parent conference.  Please reach out to your child's teacher to find a time to meet. We also invite you to reach out to us should you be interested in meeting one-on-one.  Building strong connections with our families is important to us and enhances the work we do as a school. 

We look forward to meeting with you!

Fun Run

We are on a ROLL, Broncos!

So far, our school has raised $7,500 for our Broncos FUN RUN! We are halfway to our goal of $15,000 and a dance party for the ENTIRE SCHOOL! Not to mention the other prizes your classes can win by going to pledgestar.com/brookfield and asking friends and family to make a pledge. Classes can earn fun things for collecting donations, including stuffed animal and pajama days, popcorn and pizza parties, and so much more! Ask a grown up to help you - they have gotten an email about it, plus a flyer.

Let's go, Broncos!
