Village of Brooks

Greeting Eagles Parents,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! My name is Kenya Patnett, Sophomore 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.

VOB officers are continuously planning and strategizing ways to engage and support our parents and teachers, so they may empower our youth!  Parents are key partners in their child’s learning. 

The 1st VOB meeting of the school year was Tuesday September 4th, at 6pm in the cafeteria. The remaining meetings of the year will be the 1st Tuesday of every month inside the student’s cafeteria. Upon registering your child for the school, you are considered a member and are both welcomed and encouraged to join us. Grandparent, Godparents, friends and anyone you consider to be a part of your “village” are also welcomed to attend meetings.

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:

  • College Fair
  • Open House
  • Parent Teacher Conferences
  • Staff Appreciation
  • Accepted Students Night

Again, we encourage you to join us. Visit the school’s website for a complete list of VOB meeting dates, the monthly newsletter, and volunteer opportunities. We welcome you to the Village of Brooks!
