Brookwood Fund: Make it Happen in May!
We are halfway through our challenge and we saw movement in Grade 5 and Grade 6. Which class will get to 100% first? Last year, we had three classes achieve 100% participation from parents. If you haven't made your gift this year, help us move the mark!
Brookwood needs your help to achieve 100% participation. Together we can. Show your support by making your gift today

Upper School students can enjoy a light breakfast on Wednesday morning, May 17, in the Shlopak Library from 7:45-8:20 a.m. while they browse the latest YA literature (and some old favorites).
