All Brookfield Elementary and Middle School students will be participating in an exciting event. All families are invited to join us for our "Art and Science Night" on April 27th at 4:00 pm. Students will be displaying their inventions or science experiments and reports. Brookfield's Annual Expo combines many skills your child learns at Brookfield. New this year, we will combine and display both your student's art and invention.

Look for information coming home from your student which will explain the step-by-step guide to creating his or her own inventions or science experiment. Please go over this information with your child to make sure you, your child, and your child's teacher are on the same agenda regarding timelines, expectations, and deadlines for his/her project. If you have any questions, we recommend you ask your student's teacher for clarification as early as possible.
