Don't miss Kick Off to Kindergarten!

Please help us spread the word to your friends and neighbors who have Kindergarten-aged children.
Kindergarten Registration is NOW OPEN!
Do you have a child who will turn 5 years old before September 1, 2022? Then it is time to register for KINDERGARTEN!

If you do not have a kindergarten-aged child, please help Brookwood Elementary spread the word about Kindergarten Registration to your friends and neighbors.

Join PTA for the Spring Into Summer Work Day
Please join us for a Spring Work Day to benefit our beloved school! Our largest project will be assembling 10 new raised garden beds (each will be 6x3x1 foot) and filling them with soil for our new school garden! But, that’s not all…we will also trim bushes along the front of the building as well as plant some new flowers by the school sign. The front of the school will get a good spring cleaning and our new school garden will be ready to plant in the fall!
Kids are welcome and encouraged to come work alongside their parents. What better way to instill pride in your school than sweat equity mixed with some fun? Also, don’t forget to bring your gardening tools, hedge trimmers, shovels, gloves, rakes, wheelbarrows, a water bottle as well as any cardboard boxes you might have (with tape removed - to line the garden beds).
Please sign up to let us know you are working. Can’t wait to see you there!
