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. 

Take the Parents' Association survey

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.
