Principal for the Day Experience

Today was an incredible day filled with laughter and fun - well every single day at Brassfield is filled with laughter and fun, but... today was an extra special day. Mr. Shillings and I had the privilege of sitting back and sharing our leadership responsibilities with Caitlin Agresta and Brooklyn Weiss. Wow - we were so impressed by both girls, who inspired us with their excitement and who captivated us with their innate leadership skills. Thank you for a spectacular day, Miss Agresta and Miss Weiss! I won't be surprised if either one of you has a hard time reverting back to addressing me as Ms. MacWilliams.

Dear Brassfield Families,

There is extraordinary magic in sharing happiness and in bestowing hope; such a uniquely wonderful gift that in giving, one also receives. At Brassfield, our team celebrates prodigious joy in cultivating a passion for learning in our students, in each other, and among all school stakeholders. Like happiness, knowledge never decreases by being shared; teaching is learning – what an incredible gift it is to be an educator.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your family.
