Principal's Message 5/17/20
Dear Brooks Families,
It is with sadness, yet excitement and pride, I ask you to read the message below from Mrs. Schmid.
Dear Tiger Families,
It is with Tiger spirit in my heart, I want to share starting July 1st, I will be transitioning as the Principal at Brookdale Elementary. Although I am incredibly honored and excited for this opportunity, I am saddened to say "until later" to our students and families I have had the pleasure of working with these past five years at Brooks. It has been a true honor getting to watch your children grow and develop while partnering together to do what was best in supporting them.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked alongside phenomenal staff here at Brooks and am confident not only will the excellent work continue, it will only continue to grow stronger in their commitment to the Brooks Tiger students. I will work closely with Mrs. Russell and the new Student Services Coordinator to ensure a smooth transition.
Thank you, it has been a true pleasure and privilege to serve the Brooks Community.
Forever Roaring with Tiger Pride,
Student Services Coordinator

A huge SHOUT OUT to Mr. Persson and the Specials Team for organizing a fun “at home Field Day.” I’ve seen several pictures and it appears the students had a great time! Thank you to our parents/guardians who supported their students so this day would be special, even though not at school!

All student registrations for the 2020-21 school year will be processed online. Parents can complete their child’s registration for next year starting June 8. An email will be sent to parents with details later in May.
4th Quarter Grades-Reminder
In staying within state and district guidelines, elementary students will receive feedback on their activities, but NO GRADES will be given for the fourth quarter. I want to assure you that conversations have already begun regarding next fall. Fall assessment data will guide our path to planning. We recognize skill, concept and pacing expectations will need to be adjusted based on our current situation.
