Annual Auction & Party
Now is the time, and we need YOU. We are seeking auction items from big to small and everything in between. If you are interested in learning more, and we hope you are, please join us for Auction Wish List TUESDAYS from 8:00 - 8:30 a.m. in the Liston Commons. We will meet every TUESDAY in January to talk through auction ideas, 'wish list' items and other ways in which you can get involved and support this fun event. If you can't make one of the Auction Wish List TUESDAYS in January, no problem, just email Alison Harden with ideas and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people that can get involved and help out, the better! Thank you in advance!

January 28: Admissions Open House
Brookwood's next Admissions Open House is planned for Saturday, January 28, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Current families are our best ambassadors in spreading the word about Brookwood. We hope that you will consider "sharing" and "liking" our upcoming admissions events on Facebook
and Twitter to help spread the word!
Additionally, if you know of a family considering independent school for their child(ren) entering grades PreK through Grade 8, please pass along the information about our upcoming Open House on January 28. Go to visit brookwood
for more details on the Open House.

Handicap parking spaces
At times, finding a parking space on campus can be a challenge. Please refrain from parking in the four clearly marked Handicap parking spaces unless you have the required placard. Many in our community need these spaces and rely on them being open when they are here at Brookwood. Thank you.
