• Dear Brumfield Family,

    We want to welcome our new and returning students to James G. Brumfield Elementary School, home of the Brumfield Giraffes.  We are excited about the school year that we will have together, and we know that it will be filled with lots of learning and fun.

    As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential.  We believe that all of us, the school and the community, must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students.  We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

    With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Brumfield Elementary School.  Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, special event participation, or help at home, you are encouraged to be involved.  Research clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

    JGB is a great school where students receive quality academic instruction in a safe, caring and respectful environment.  Our school is a special place because of the terrific people that learn and work here and because of the community in which it is located.  We desire the best for all students and look forward to partnering with parents and community members to help our students be their best.  With everyone working together, we are sure to achieve our goals and be successful.  Students come to school with a willingness to work hard, expecting to learn, and with a positive attitude.  Our teachers will provide the quality instruction that our students deserve and that our parents expect.  Parents encourage your children often, talk to them about school and their work, and support them in every way that you can.  Parental involvement shows children that school is important and that you are committed to their success.  We encourage you to volunteer your time and abilities, visit often, and communicate regularly with your child’s teacher.  Together we can accomplish great things!

    At Brumfield Elementary School, we aspire to be a community of learners that respects and cares about one another.  In this environment, with this commitment to one another, we can accomplish more collectively than we could have done independently. We are glad that you are a part of the Brumfield community, and we know that each student will have a terrific educational experience this year.  We look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
