December Newsletter

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. - Buddha

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.

On January 5th, please welcome to Brassfield:
Ms. Terri Hawley, Instructional Technology Facilitator, joining us from Carrboro High School.

The WCPSS has transitioned to a new website. As a result, commencing January 5th, our Brassfield site, inclusive of all classroom blogs, will be updated as well. This communication forum will be the hub of all things Brassfield from January, moving forward. Please be sure to visit your child’s classroom blog for all news, updates, homework, and information that is relevant to your child’s learning needs.

It is an honor and a privilege to ‘cultivate and empower globally competitive students for success in our continuously changing world.’

May your days be merry and bright.

Always Brassfield Proud,

Elizabeth MacWilliams
