Have you turned in a donation form for your family in support of the upcoming FAB Auction? If you haven’t, please do. This Auction is how we as a school support dance and drama instruction and provide Arts Infusion days. If you take a minute and ask your children about these parts of their curriculum, you will see that they are favorites – exposure to culture and outlets for expression. These activities will be some of the largest takeaways your child is going to carry with them from elementary school. Please consider how you can support this cause. It is a huge endeavor, but with a little support from every family it will be a big success.Questions?
Thursday, March 29th, will be a full day of school for students. Friday, March 30th, students will dismiss at NOON. Parent/Teacher conferences have been rescheduled for Friday, March 30th.
Pennies for Patients Campaign is a service-learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers. For over two weeks, Brockman students have been collecting everything from pennies to $20 bills to help our school raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and support their mission to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families. This has been a great opportunity for our students to experience the positive impact we can make in the world when we work together. One box of loose change might not seem like enough to make a difference, but after adding them all up, our school has raised a total of $2,250.28 in the first two weeks of this campaign! Amazing!
Be sure to send in any final contributions by this Friday, March 2nd, or donate online using the link below.

Hello parents! Hopefully, you’ve already marked your calendars for Friday, April 27th, for a spectacular evening celebrating our school, families, and arts programs at the Rockbridge Swim & Tennis Club. We are looking for individuals who are willing to help us acquire fun and desirable prizes for our art auction. We are so fortunate to live in a generous community where many businesses will participate, if asked. When everyone does a little, we have a fantastic arts fundraiser. We challenge you to make a meaningful contribution to Brockman by being a part of the acquisition team.
Other ways you can help:
- Did you know your unused/gently used luxury items such as unused wedding presents, mom’s sterling, or a designer purse could bring in money for our school? Please consider donating unused valuables.
- Do you have a special talent or skill that others would appreciate? Can you bake fancy cakes or gourmet food items? Develop landscaping plans? Paint a room? Make jewelry? Photograph children? Teach a craft? Please consider donating your services.
Acquisition forms are located in the front foyer of the school. Turn one in to your child’s teacher today!
