Dear Middlebrook Families and Visitors

A school is nothing but a building until students, teachers and families join together as a community to commit their efforts towards excellence in learning. It is with great excitement that I welcome you to Middlebrook School to start the 2014-2015 school year together.

It is our aim, through the combined efforts of the staff, students, parents, and community members, to create a learning environment focused on strong student success. The Middlebrook staff is dedicated to developing an educational community where our students;

  • Promise to:
  • Act responsibly
  • Work with Heart
  • Show respect

Our mascot Eli (the mountain lion) encourages our students to use PAWS to model positive behavior in our community. PAWS is a part of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) which helps to nurture and develop citizens who work together in a way that values all community members. Throughout the year, you will hear more about PBIS, so watch for Eli and PAWS.

Families will often ask how they can help their child to succeed in school. Families that encourage their children to read daily, practice math facts, complete homework and study, see their children rewarded with strong academic growth. Our teachers appreciate your partnership and support in the learning process.

Throughout the year, our teachers and PTA need volunteers to help with activities or programs that have a positive effect on our students. Please go to to complete a volunteer form as your child loves to see his/her family helping at school.

Please know that my door is always open for discussions, questions or suggestions. I look forward to working with our students to be their best.

It is hard to believe the start of school is around the corner I hope you have had a lovely summer and enjoyed the slower pace. We are currently updating the school website, so check in regularly to see what is new. To help you take advantage of Back-to-School sales, we have put a generic list of grade level school supplies students will need on the school website. Teacher assignment packets will be mailed out of the district office later this week, which is always exciting. Here are some dates you will want to put on your calendar:

August 25 - Open House, 2-3pm

September 9 - Back-to-School Night - Grades Kindergarten - 2. 6:45-8pm

We will continue with Eblast (email) communication to keep you informed. I look forward to greeting our families as we start a new year together.

Best Wishes,

Patricia Frillici, Principal
