Hello Brodhead Cardinal Families:

We have had a lot of activities and events in our District over the last few weeks and look forward to even more activities as the year comes to a close. Our High School spring sports are winding down their regular seasons and are approaching tournament play, another Elementary Field Day is in the books, and the Middle School 8th graders are getting ready to go through their promotional ceremony as they are that much closer to being High Schoolers. May is definitely an exciting time of year in our schools.

Our Building and Grounds Committee developed a summer project list that was approved at our last School Board Meeting. If you have passed the west parking lot of the Elementary School you will notice that new sidewalks have been added at the entryways to our intermediate playground. They are welcome additions and will help avoid mud buildup when it rains. We are slowly finishing our gravel areas around our ball fields and will be adding asphalt around the inside fenced-in area of our concession stand and the gravel parking lot by our softball field. This will really improve the look of these areas and be much less maintenance for our staff. There will also be some smaller projects around the District including improvement to the circle drive in front of the Middle School, fixing the cement sidewalk in front of the Elementary School, and making some of our Middle School bathrooms ADA compatible.

Our end-of-year Parent Engagement Survey is due by May 24. Please consider filling out this short survey. It provides us with great information we can use in our annual goal setting process.

Looking ahead, Memorial Day is coming up on May 30, which is a No School day. Our last day of school is Thursday, June 2, which is an Early Release day (1:00 p.m. for the Elementary School and 1:15 p.m. for the Middle School and High School).

Sincerely,

David Novy, Superintendent
Brodhead School District
