During the 2013-’14 school year, we celebrated our 50th anniversary at Brookfield Christian School. As we reflected on the
vision and courage of our founders and the many blessings God has bestowed on our school, we were reminded that we need to continue our onward march into the future and our mission of educating children from a Christian perspective. The five-year Faith Reaching Further Campaign positioned us to expand early childhood education, improve facilities & capabilities, add much needed classroom space, and give our children access to the most current educational technology. We continue to build on the foundation our founding families laid for us – in faith we began, in faith we go forward.
On October 11, 2013, we gathered with school founders, students, staff, families and friends of Brookfield Christian School in the grass outside our West entrance, and broke ground on our third building expansion. Over the course of a year, we watched as the addition took shape. We added a new art room, 3 new middle school classrooms, a space for our future media center, a new gymnasium with a concessions area and locker rooms. The former gym was converted to a music and band room and cafeteria space. The former music and art rooms were transformed into 3K and 4K classrooms. Everything was given a fresh coat of paint and new carpet/floors were added where needed. Dedicated parents and supporters of the school volunteered many hours to make sure the work was completed in time for the start of the new school year.
On October 10, 2014, we once again gathered on the same spot we had just a year ago to dedicate the building addition to God. Just one year later, we were sitting inside of our brand new gymnasium, thanks to God and to our fantastic supporters. You can view a photo album of the project from start to finish on our Facebook page, and a brief video montage of the project here.
Faith Reaching Further Fund
We are grateful to all of those who have pledged and made donations toward our building expansion project. As of November, 2013, we had raised over $2.2 Million for the project, and met our initial goal of over $500,000 cash in hand at the start of construction, with over $600,000. If you would still like to support the expansion project, you can do so by completing a pledge card, mailing or dropping off a check, or getting in touch with one of our committee members. It can be a generous one-time gift, or a weekly, monthly, or annual pledge over 5 years. As many companies match employee donations, be sure to ask if your employer offers a match program in order to maximize your pledge.
Donations and pledge cards should be sent to the school at the address below. Donations may also be made online via the Donate page or mailed directly to the school:
