Principal RichardsonDear Brookland Middle School (BMS) Family,

As we enter into our fourth year of existence as a school, I am amazed at the potential of our students, the audacity of hope displayed by our parents, and the relentless pursuit of excellence exhibited by our faculty and staff. "Now is our Time". During the 2017-2018 school year, our students made tremendous growth in reading and math and showcased their talents in music, visual art, and Drama. 97% of our eighth-grade scholars applied to specialty high schools, and 6 of our scholars attended an all-expense paid trip to China.

This school year, we will capitalize on our gains and exceed expectations. We would like 100% of our students to receive a home visit from BMS staff so that we can continue to partner with our families to ensure a successful school year. Through our partnership with the Flamboyan Foundation, we will seize the opportunity to ensure our students and families feel a part of the Brookland Middle School community. Our 6th and 7th grade scholars will take ownership of their academic success and set goals for themselves via Student-Led Conferences.

This fall, BMS will welcome more than 250 students. Our goal is to ensure that all students feel loved and valued. We want students to experience "joyful learning" and high academic expectations. We will continue to provide a safe and nurturing environment where students learn and thrive. Our Brookland Breezers will participate in monthly incentives such as dances, skating, and Breeze choice time to remind them of the benefits of maintaining high academic and behavior expectations.

Now is our time to become a model of educational excellence. Brookland will be a creative and intellectual oasis, where we engage communities and families.

In pursuit of excellence,

Kerry Richardson, Jr.

Principal
