Dear Middlebrook Families and Visitors,

I am very excited to begin the new school year and welcome staff, students, and families back from the summer break. Middlebrook's committed teachers have spent the summer reading, and creating new lessons or materials to be ready for our students to learn. We all look forward to a rewarding year of work with our students!

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;

  • Positively strive to learn,
  • Value perseverance and hard work,
  • Demonstrate strong achievement,
  • Model respectful, caring citizenship, and
  • Build positive self-esteem, while feeling nurtured and safe.

Educationally supportive homes help our students reach these goals. Families who encourage their children to read daily, practice math facts, complete homework and study see their children rewarded with strong academic growth. Please attend the monthly Chat with the Principal sessions to learn more about the learning environment at Middlebrook. Throughout the year, our teachers and PTA need volunteers to help with activities or programs that have a positive effect on our students. Children love to see their family helping at school, so please sign-up to help at Middlebrook. Volunteering is a great way to see learning in action!

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

Summer Volunteers needed for the School Garden
We are looking for at least 8 volunteers to help weed and water the school garden during the summer vacation.

The garden requires a minimal amount of work. It needs to be watered as needed and weeded once a week. If you have older children in search of volunteer hours this could be a great way to accomplish that. Any questions about what is a weed and what isn't? Don't worry, the garden is very simple to maintain.

If you can spare a few hours during the summer to keep Middlebrook looking beautiful, please contact Kathy Downs at

Have you joined the PTA yet ? Some benefits of PTA membership include getting to vote on PTA matters, continuing to get these PTA emails and getting the PTA directory. And there's much more than that. Also, if you would like to be in our directory, please join by October first. By that point, we will start putting the directory together with the membership that has already joined.
