Upper School Updates- 4/21

Dear Upper School Parents and Guardians,

It’s been another action-packed week at Brookwood with recitals, recess regatta, our first baseball game of the season, and a special art celebration day. Please click here to see some pictures from this Spring. Seeing you with your children and their advisors/teachers on campus last week for Student Led Conferences was great. Thank you for experimenting with us as we tried something different. If you have not provided feedback yet, here is a brief survey so we can plan for next year. Please see Samson Strolls, Ask Me Abouts, and important announcements below:

*Field Trips: We look forward to students and teachers getting off campus this Spring for Field Trips. Please see what we have planned starting next week:

  • On Tuesday, April 25, the 8th Grade is going to the Addison Gallery and will be off campus from 9:00 - 1:00. Students have been asked to bring a packed lunch (no nuts or tree nuts) for their lunch. We will provide snacks.

  • On Wednesday, April 26, The 6th grade will visit Turtle Creek and Turtle Woods to meet with residents as the first step in re-establishing a partnership under the Changemaking program. They will be going twice this year (April 26 and May 24), leaving at 10:15 and returning to campus for lunch at 12:15.

  • On Monday, May 1, the 7th grade will go to Boston for a scavenger hunt, and on May 19, the 5th Grade will go to the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester. More details will follow…
