Wolverine Weekly

Sunday, July 18

Greetings Wolverines!

I hope that you are enjoying an amazing summer with your children! My two kids are having a blast at summer camp and they are gearing up for the fall sports season. I am also taking time to bask in the sun, catch up with friends, and plan for the 2021-2022 school year! I want you to have information so that you can start to prepare your middle schooler for the year ahead. This week's newsletter provides some preliminary dates. I will continue to keep you abreast of our calendar and general news by sending a newsletter each Sunday. I am so excited about the 2021-2022 school year and I look forward to leading the Wolverine Pack!

Until next time,

Mrs. Broudy

Summer Laptop Collection

If your student is NOT enrolled in an approved HCPS summer instructional course , then please drop off his/her laptop at either of the (2) summer Help Desks (open Monday-Thursday from 8-Noon) OR bring the device to Wilder for storage in “the vault”. Thank you for helping us to prepare for the 2021-2022 school year!

Virginia Tax-Free Shopping Weekend

Tax-free shopping weekend is August 6-8! You can save on school supplies, clothing, and footwear. Here is our general school supply list and the 6th grade GYSA list.

Attention Rising 7th Grade Students!

Free Vaccinations at Brookland MS: HCPS and the VDH are doing a vaccination clinic on 7/21 from 9-11am in the BMS Gym to vaccinate any students ages 12 and older for not only COVID-19, but also tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, HPV and meningococcal virus.

This is important because Virginia law requires the TDaP and meningococcal vaccines for HCPS students entering seventh grade!
