Greeting Eagles Parents,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! My name is Kimberly Thompson, Senior Parent and President of the Village of Brooks (“VOB”) Parent Club. On behalf of the VOB, I would like to take a moment to thank you for your commitment to Brooks and your child’s future.
I’m sure you know of the many benefits to children who have parents and loved ones involved and engaged in their education. The Village of Brooks is committed to supporting you in your efforts.
The 1st VOB meeting of the school year will be Tuesday, September 6th at 6pm in the school auditorium. The remaining meetings of the year will be the 1st Tuesday of every month. Upon registering your child for the school, you are considered a member and are both welcomed and expected to attend. Grandparents, Godparents, friends and anyone you consider to be a part of your “village” are also welcomed to join us.
Our hope is to support the school’s leadership in creating the kind of school community & culture where teachers, administrators and students can do their best work and to help Brooks become the #1 high school of choice in Chicago.
In addition to the monthly meetings, listed below are some of the events & initiatives the Parent Club will support this year:
Parent Teacher Conferences
Accepted Students Night
Again, we encourage you to join us. Visit the school’s website for a complete list of VOB meeting dates, the quarterly newsletter and volunteer application. Please email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome you to the Village of Brooks!
