Middle School students can be dropped off at Middle School prior to 8:15 am and then will be walked over to the assembly, or they can be brought directly to the Elementary Campus after 8:15 am.

It's never too early to start saving pictures for the yearbook! If you have any great school-related photos, please send them to Mrs. Dusek at mdusek@brookfieldschool.com for yearbook and Mrs. Goecker at kgoecker@brookfieldschool.com for newsletter. Please note that any photo sent may be posted on the website, our social media pages, in the newsletter, and in the yearbook. We will not print names.

BOX TOPS: We are happy to announce that PTA will be collecting Box Tops again this year! Box Tops are little vouchers located on many everyday household items that bring money to your school! Look for the bright pink Box Tops on brands such as Kleenex, Ziploc, General Mills, Annie's, and Pilsbury. Please clip out all non-expired Box Tops and place in a Ziploc bag with your child's teacher's name on it. You can turn them in to the office or to your teacher. We will be holding the collection beginning now and will collect through the end of 2017. The classroom with the most Box Tops collected will win fabulous prizes! Start clipping…and if you have the time, we would love to receive them in Ziploc bags of 50. Thank you to Mrs. Toland for volunteering to be the Box Tops Coordinator!

The reserved parking spots at the Elementary Campus and TLC are now available to the public, despite any signs you may see on them. They will be auctioned off again at the Fall Festival on Thursday, October 26th (save the date!). So fall in love with those premium spaces now, and be sure to bid in October!
