Curriculum Night

If you've been to prior Curriculum Nights at Brookwood, the format is the same as last year. If you're new to Brookwood, or if you need a refresher, here are some FAQs:

When is it?
Tuesday, August 19th
Session 1 = 6:00pm - 6:55pm
Session 2 = 7:00pm - 7:55pm

What session do I attend?
Both sessions are exactly the same. If you have two students at Brookwood, attend 1 session for one student, and 1 session for the other. If you have only one Brookwood student, you can choose your session. If you have only a Kindergartner at Brookwood, you do not need to attend. (Kindergarten teachers held their curriculumn night last week.)

Why should I attend? What is this all about?
Curriculum Night is a structured presentation from your child's teacher. Teachers inform you about the class schedule, class policies, and class curriculum. Teachers will cover things like grading/report cards, standards/testing, homework, lunch/snack policies, etc. It's an important event that you want to attend.

Do students attend?
No! This is for Parents only. Please make other arrangements for your children. Childcare will NOT be available at school, and children should NOT be in the classrooms.

What time should I arrive?
Arrive early! Sessions start promptly, and you'll need time to park and get to the classroom. You'll want to be in your child's seat at either 6pm or 7pm. 

How about parking?
The parking lot will probably fill quickly. Do not park in a fire lane, block other cars, or block the flow of traffic. Please be respectful of other parents by parking in a designated spot. You may have to park along Vaughan Road and walk a short distance to the school.

What else should I know?
The PTA will hold the first General Meeting of the year via video presentation during each session. There is no separate meeting that you'll need to attend. The budget will be uploaded to the PTA website after the meeting.

What else is going on at Curriculum Night?
A PTA table will be set up in the school lobby. Stop by to purchase spirit wear, donate to the fundraiser, inquire about volunteering, become a PTA Member, order a yearbook, and/or meet the PTA leadership team. And while we're thinking about it, here's one more shameless plug for the fundraiser: we are very close to our goal... only $3k to go!  If you haven't already donated, please donate online or at Curriculum Night. Any donation, no matter how small, will help support our teachers. Read more under our fundraising tab.

Fundraising

Brookwood Elementary Families,

Your elected PTA Board would like to thank you for your financial contributions and volunteer hours in support of Brookwood Elementary during the 2013-2014 school year. Through your support we were able to plan for and provide many student centered events. We provided teachers with additional resources and administration with funding to fill in the gaps resulting from cuts in educational funding.  Our biggest accomplishment with the Write A Check fundraiser was providing iPads for teacher and student use in the classroom.

During the upcoming 2014-2015 school year, the Brookwood PTA families will focus on improving our science, technology and art programs.  Our goal is to increase proficiency among Brookwood students in these subjects.

Estimated Budget Needs for Program Goals

Technology and Website Subscriptions $17,000
Science Lab   10,000
Math, Music, and Arts    8,000
Teacher Support     3,000
                                      Total $38,000

 Key Fundraising Details

We are asking for a minimum donation of $100 per family. This includes “Write a Check” fundraiser donation, two PTA memberships, and one school directory. Students may ask friends and family to donate towards our Write A Check fundraiser.
