As you walk through the doors of Brassfield Road Elementary, students, teachers, and parents will be fully engaged in meaningful learning opportunities. We will collaborate, in person and virtually through the use of innovative applications on modern technological devices, to investigate and solve real world problems. Relationships will be nurtured through acts of recognition, kindness, and professionalism. Teaching and learning will be at the forefront of all distributive decision making processes.
Brassfield will hold Open Houses for the 2017-2018 school year on the following dates:
Open house is a family-friendly event that gives students the opportunity to show off their new classrooms, as well as gives teachers the opportunity to share important information regarding classroom procedures and instruction. For Tracks 1, 2, & 3, we’ve asked that teachers run through their main announcements/information once at 5:30 and again at 6:15 so that families with multiple children can visit more than one classroom, as well as to help accommodate parking. We will also have tables set up throughout the evening with information from our departments and community partners, such as Transportation, Child Nutrition, the Brassfield PTA, and YMCA Before & After School Care.
Stay up to date with Brassfield news & events using the following resources:
We love our volunteers! Visitors who have the potential to be alone with students at any point are required to complete the WCPSS Volunteer Registration process.
The following are examples of some volunteer duties that require registration: Field trip chaperones, tutoring inside or outside the classroom, off-campus mentoring, media assistant, club leader/coach, clerical work for teacher, media center volunteer, classroom assistant, field day volunteer, test proctor, front office helper, room parent. To register, you must visit the school during school hours and must have valid identification with you.
