BECS Parent Newsletter

April 29. 2022

Dear Bromley Families

We have officially concluded CMAS testing and are entering our final month of school! We have many fun events planned for students at school that will be communicated by your child’s teacher and the Parent Newsletter. Please be sure to check your email and update the office with any changes to your contact information.


To help ensure a positive end to the school year, it is helpful for families to remain in good communication with their child’s teacher(s), regularly check Infinite Campus, and maintain home routines to support your child’s success.


Finally, next week is Staff Appreciation Week. BECS PTO and Administration have some fun plans to celebrate the hard work of our staff. If you would like to share your appreciation with a staff member, this is a great time to do so!


Have a great weekend!

5th Grade

Congratulations to Layla Korb in Mrs. Frazier's Fifth Grade Homeroom for winning First Prize in the Brighton Arbor Day Poster Contest. Layla will move on to the State Competition. Layla will get a $100 gift card as well as her own tree to plant at their home. Plus each student in Mrs. Frazier's class will get a sapling to take home AND they got to plant a tree on our school property. Congratulations to Layla Korb!

5th Grade Heading on to Middle School

We are looking forward to supporting you and your child with the transition to 6th grade! We recognize that while students remain in the same building, they encounter several major changes when transitioning to middle school such as having six teachers per day, having a locker, managing their organization, and engaging with numerous different groups of peers along with all of their physical and emotional changes. Below are some answers to a few of the questions you may have regarding your student going into 6th grade.

Elementary Leadership Class

We would like to introduce you to Ms. Heather Line who is our Elementary Interim Leadership Teacher. She has already been doing some fun and engaging activities with her class. She has a special message to share with you.

So far they have learned how to synergize (work together) to create treehouses and trees. The Leader in Me program teaches 8 habits to instill positive self-esteem, kindness towards others, and a can-do mindset to prepare them for the future. I take great pride in knowing that I am helping your child grow into the leader they are designed to be! All of them are unique and have so much to offer for our future! Thank you for entrusting your children to me.

Ms. Heather Line


Executive Director Search Process Update from Board President, Therese Marrugo

This past Monday we interviewed a candidate for Bromley's executive director position. I first want to thank everyone who participated either by submitting questions and/or attending the meet-and-greet.

Taking into account all stakeholder feedback on this candidate, the consensus was that the candidate is not the right fit for Bromley. This highlights that teachers, parents, the search committee, and the board know what they are looking for in the next executive director, see the importance of finding the right person for the school and our students, and value putting in the time to find her or him.

The search committee and board agreed to continue the search and accept applications through May 13, 2022, with the goal of having in-person interviews for additional qualified candidates the following week. We encourage you to attend the meet-and-greet with candidates and try to schedule those at times that are most convenient for parents. That said, we realize that there is no single time that works for all parents, but we always work to ensure parents can participate in areas that are most important to them and want to hear your feedback.

As always, we will continue to keep you up-to-date on the search as well as additional opportunities to participate and be involved.


Lost and Found

We are overflowing with lost items. Please ask your student to check for any items they may be missing.
