Parent Survey: Calling All Parents
Please participate in the Parent Survey that you received this week from Head of School Laura Caron. We want to hear from you about how Brookwood is doing and what you think Brookwood's strategic priorities should be going forward. We ask that parents complete the online survey by June 5. Thank you in advance for taking time to reflect on Brookwood's areas of strength and opportunities for growth. Your input is essential.

Last May we had three classes achieve 100% current parent participation. This is the final week to increase participation for Brookwood. Which class will achieve 100% before May 31? If you haven't made your gift this school year, now is the time! Parents, Brookwood needs your help.
Brookwood Fund participation at any level matters. It's true: gifts of all sizes are what make the Fund special. The most important Brookwood Fund number is the percentage of people who participate, because high participation shows a community that is fully committed!
