Community Conversations

Dear Brookfield Families,

Dr. Michelle Reid has been hosting Community Conversations and Employee Conversations  throughout the division since the fall of this school year. She is committed to getting to know our school communities. 

These events provide a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to connect with Dr. Reid, share concerns and ideas. She is there to listen and answer your questions. Your voice is important.

We invite you to register for the last community conversation of the school year. Pre-registration is not required, but does help us plan.

Upcoming Community Conversation:

May 28, 2024 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Childcare and language interpretation services will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you at the last Superintendent Community Conversations of the year.
