Re: 2017 Welcome Back to School – for all schools
Dear Brookfield Families,
Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year. We hope you had a fun and adventure filled summer. The staff is so happy to welcome you and your family back to school. Brookfield School welcomes and values your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education.
Our devoted staff are already planning and preparing for your child(ren). The enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering new materials and updating student files. Brookfield’s much-appreciated PTA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs.
The first day of school is Monday, August 28, 2017. All students should be prepared for a full day, including a snack and lunch. A “Welcome to School” Parent Reception will be hosted at the Elementary Campus on the first day of school beginning at 8:00 am and at TLC beginning at 9:15 am. Administration will make introductions and be available to explain more about the after school clubs, as well as the PTA memberships drive and used uniform sale. All sign up sheets will be available in the office for the week following the welcome reception.
Parents are invited to the weekly Friday morning assemblies. Elementary and Middle School Assemblies are at the Elementary Campus at 8:30 am and at TLC at 9:15 am. Elementary and Middle School are released at 1:00 pm every Friday, after care is provided until 6:00 pm as normal.
Currently we are not offering a catered hot lunch program. We are excited to bring back Pizza Day at all three campuses. More information will be coming out on the cost and how to order during the first week of school. We will continue our search for a new hot lunch program.
Brookfield School continues to strive to be ecologically conscious. You can find all detailed information online at www.brookfieldschool.com The site has links to the following: this letter, staff backgrounds, academic calendar, uniforms, the classroom start and end times, and a map of both the Elementary and Middle School campuses.
A supply list for Elementary and Middle School students is online at www.classbundl.com and each teacher may have a more detailed list available at the Ice Cream Social. For more detailed information review the TLC Information and Elementary/Middle School Information sheets on the website. Again, if there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2017-2018 school year. Careful consideration was given to input from staff and families as well as student learning styles. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level.
Thank you so much for being positive with your child and helping him or her understand that is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. ALL of our staff works hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. Brookfield School is looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group and teacher.
Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that Brookfield School remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. We look forward to greeting students and families again.
- All TLC families are invited to our annual TLC Ice Cream Social and Open House from 10:00 am to 11:30 am on Friday, August 25th.
