Dear Parents and Guardians:
The first marking period will close on November 15th and report cards will be on the parent portal on November 23rd. There are a lot of exciting things in store for Brackman students in the upcoming weeks. We have a great day planned on Friday, November 4th, honoring and welcoming members in our community that have served in the armed forces, Holiday Fund drives to support families in the Barnegat community, and Winter sports tryouts begin on November 15th. Students will be preparing for the drama production this winter as well as our upcoming band, chorus, vocal and jazz productions.
After school assistance is offered in all major subjects for all students. Sign-up forms are available in the main office. Please encourage your child to take advantage of these worthwhile programs.
