Please place your vote by Monday, March 2nd at noon: 


It has been a fun-filled couple of weeks, Bears, complete with family time, reading, pancakes, snowmen, and our very own Snowfall Prediction Challenge. What an amazing community we have at Brassfield. I am so proud to be part of our special village.

Lockdown Drill

The safety and welfare of our students is our number one priority at Brassfield. Our building has a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan in place, and in order to familiarize our school community with their roles and responsibilities associated with this plan, we will be conducting a Lockdown drill this week. This will be a collaborative effort among Brassfield faculty and staff, the WCPSS' Security Department, and local law enforcement.

Back to Business, Bears!

The weather is finally cooperating and school is back in session!

We're looking forward to our first make-up day, scheduled for this Saturday, February 28th, from 9:15am - 12:45pm. Our cafeteria will be closed - no breakfast or lunch will be served. Students are strongly encouraged to bring a healthy snack.  

The WCPSS' calendar/early transfer application window opened last Friday, February 20th, and it will close this Thursday, February 26th. If your family is applying for a grandfather transfer back to Brassfield, the online application must be completed by Thursday's deadline. For more information on this process, please visit the WCPSS' Student Assignment website.

I'm looking forward to an awesome week filled with meaningful learning and teaching ahead at Brassfield!
