Chromebook Pilot for 5th Grade Families- We are thrilled to announce that our 5th grade students will participate in District 204’s Chromebook pilot program.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 7 from 5:30-6:30 for a Parent training night! Immediately following at 7:00, please join us for the first PTA Meeting.


Academically Talented Parent Night: Each year, we identify students for a myriad of academic programs that support student needs. Each of these programs has a specific qualification process and criteria. On Tuesday, September 19 at 6:00 pm, Brooks will host a parent information night on how school assessment data is used to identify students for the following programs:


Math Acceleration (starting in grade 3)
Project Arrow (gifted program, also starting in grade 3)
