Greetings from Brookwood! 

The 2023-2024 school year is upon us, and I want to personally welcome everyone back to another great school year at Brookwood! We have an outstanding team of staff members who work tirelessly to educate all of our students every day. Our staff motto this year is: “T.E.A.M …. Together Everyone Achieves More!” This motto is represented on our staff T-shirts that you will see our team wearing throughout the school year. Our staff is extremely excited to get the school year underway, and we all feel that together we can overcome any challenge we face this year.

The entire staff at Brookwood has been preparing for several months, and we are ready to go! Thank you to our staff for their efforts in getting everything ready for our students to return for another great year, and thank you to those who were able to attend our annual Back-to-School Night on Thursday, Aug. 24. It was definitely a great time for students to meet their teachers, roam the hallways to see where their classrooms are at, get their school pictures taken, and prepare themselves for the journey ahead. When the doors opened last Monday, and watching students walk through the front door on the first day of school, you could feel the added energy in the air upon their arrival. Students entered the hallways, smiling and eager to get another school year underway. Based on their enthusiasm and contagious smiles, I think this year is going to be an exceptional one! 

This year our students, staff, and community members will begin to see our school continue striving for educational excellence as our referendum projects begin to take shape. Over the past several months, there has been a ton of design work completed, and we are ready to break ground the week of Sept. 5 on the new track and field, football field, and physical-education space. This project will be under construction until the winter weather eventually brings it to a halt, but it will then start up again as soon as the weather allows in the spring. The completion date of this phase of the project is set to be July 2024. Design and architectural work for the remainder of the project has been underway for many months, and construction will begin this spring. The final product will be well worth the wait, and we can’t wait until the project is fully completed to be able to give our community an open look at the educational upgrades. Brookwood will truly be an even greater destination for education when our projects are complete. It’s a very exciting time to be a Falcon!

It’s going to be a great school year, and I want to thank the parents, staff, students, and our community members for always working together to do what’s best for our students. I hope to see you around at school events throughout the school year. We hope that this is the best school year ever as we continually strive for perfection and excellence. GO FALCONS!!!
