Welcome Letter from Principal

Welcome to the Brooks Elementary Principal’s Corner

Hello Brooks Elementary Family,

Welcome to our school and our website. We hope this website will serve as your “go to” resource for any questions you may have about what’s happening on our campus, who to contact with a concern, or to share an idea to make our school even better.

Our mission statement is simple. “Every Child...Every Day”. The faculty and staff work diligently to make this an inviting learning environment for every child. We are excited about the many activities and learning experiences that occur each day at BES. Our teachers are trained in the Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) and Alabama Math Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI). They use these strategies in all subject areas to make learning purposeful and meaningful.

Instructional time is important, and every minute counts. Our classes start at 7:55 a.m. It is very important your child be present and on time so as to not miss any instruction. We appreciate your help in getting our students to class on time every day.

Parental involvement is so important for the success of a child. Throughout the year you will have opportunities to meet with your child’s teacher, review academic achievements, and participate in events at BES. It is our sincere wish you take advantage of each of these as we work in partnership with you. In addition, we would ask you consider being a part of our Parent Teacher Organization. The PTO sponsors several activities during the year and welcomes your input and support.

We have many activities planned for the spring semester. Please take the opportunity to review this website on a regular basis to stay up to date and informed. You can also follow us on Twiiter @BrooksElemLions.

If I can be of assistance to you in any way, please let me know. My door is always open, and I look forward to a great year together.


Jennifer Gray, Ed.D.
