MAIN CAMPUS/MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS

For security purposes, we have recently run an update to our security gate key cards. A small number of card holders may be unable to open the front and back gates in the morning. If you have any difficulties with your card, please alert the front office as soon as possible and we will correct the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding as we keep our children safe and secure.

We have scheduled the Spring Assessment to be administered in May. Students in Pre-First will be tested the week of May 16th – May 19th. Students in First through Eighth grade will be assessed during the week of May 23rd – May 26th. As a reminder, here are actions parents can take to ensure a positive assessment situation for your child:
  • Make sure your child attends school on all testing days, unless he/she is ill.
  • Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep the nights before testing.
  • Make sure your child eats a good breakfast on mornings of testing.
  • On days when your child will be testing, we ask that he/she arrive on time (preferably a few minutes early).
  • Please do not schedule any morning appointments on these days, and please do not pick up your child earlier than lunch.
  • Make an effort to help your child feel relaxed and unrushed by allowing plenty of time for daily routines.
  • Give your child words of encouragement to let him/her know you have confidence in his/her ability to do his/her best.
If you have previously scheduled an appointment that cannot be changed, please notify your teacher as soon as possible.

We are very proud to announce that Brookfield School has received the rights to the award-winning musical production of The Lion King. This will be the full school production, including the music, props, and scenery (which means there will also be plenty of art time with Ms. Reid!). We welcome all future superstars and artistic geniuses to the auditions. Campers will create and roar their way through the summer in this 4-week program. There will be two sessions offered over summer, weeks 1-4 and weeks 5-8. Each group will be putting on a full production during the last week of the 4-week program; students will need to be signed up for all four weeks of the session to participate.

In an effort to assist our After-School Care personnel, we ask that all students leave the after-care area once their parents arrive. This will help us reduce the number of students in our line of sight. Any student remaining in the after-school care area will be signed into charged care, even if a parent is present (Pre-1st and 1st grade students who have siblings in 2nd – 8th grades are exempt from this policy until 3:30 pm). Thank you for your cooperation.
