Principal's Message

Welcome back Brill Broncos! I am honored to continue to serve as the principal of Brill. Our theme this year is Legos- at Brill everything is awesome! We strive to build a community of not only life long learners, but life long friendships. Please know that my administrative team is here to serve you in any way we can. August 19th will be here before we know it. Please take these last few weeks to enjoy your family time and we will welcome you back at Meet The Teacher on August 15th. I invite and encourage all of our families and community members to sign up to assist at Brill as we love the relationships that come from volunteering.


Sincerely,

Sandra Speer, Principal
