Dear Middlebrook Famlies,

This week Middlebrook announced our teacher and paraprofessional of the year. We would love to congratulate Mrs. Ebert, grade 3 teacher, as an outstanding representative of all things that make Middlebrook such a special place. Also, Mrs. Stephanie Hawkins, our reading paraprofessional, exemplifies how our amazing staff supports both our student body and our teachers. Please join us in congratulating two of our terrific educators.

- Parents are not allowed on the infield after they check their child in. Please wait until all students have crossed the finish line to pick up your students. We cheer until the last runner crosses. If you need to leave early please arrange this with me or the check in staff before the event starts.

News from the Nurse- Grade 3

In accordance with the Connecticut Statues, the Trumbull Board of Education’s policy on Physical Health assessments requires all students to have a current Physical Health Assessment when in 3rd Grade.

The physical must be completed between June 1, 2022 through June 1, 2023, so that your child may continue to attend the Trumbull School system.

Moving/Changing Schools?

If you will be moving / changing schools for the 2023-24 school year, please let your child's classroom teacher and the Middlebrook office know. This will help make a smooth transition for your child and allow time for staff to prepare necessary paperwork.
