Principal’s Message 2017-2018
I became a Brookland Cub for the first time as a student in 1990 and I am so excited to be back as the principal. Much has changed at BMS in those years but what has not changed is how deep the roots of Brookland run. One of my favorite parts about Brookland is that it is a community school where we have generations of Cubs sharing an experience with those that are new to the area. This combination of connections to the past and greeting the future makes Brookland a special place to grow.
Our Mission Statement says, “We challenge ourselves to be better than we think we can be and to advocate for the greater good of our culturally diverse community.” It is this aspiration to be better than we think we can be that drives us to reach new heights with our students. We are pulling together to make Brookland a community of powerful learning. The exceptional teachers and support staff at Brookland are devoted to guiding our Cubs through this learning process. We have opportunities for students that need additional supports and students that are looking for chances to excel.
We will achieve our goals by establishing meaningful relationships and providing opportunities for everyone to go above and beyond the call of duty. This ambition to strive for greatness will be the hallmark of our growth at Brookland. Our theme for this school year is “Join the Hero Movement”. Not only are we asking that everyone come together for our common vision but we are asking that everyone be a hero in their role. If we do this, there is no limit to what we can accomplish in our efforts to cultivate lifelong learners and excellent citizens.

Principal, Brookland Middle School
