During the 2013-’14 school year, we celebrated our 50th anniversary at Brookfield Christian School. Leading up to the celebration 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 must continue our onward march into the future and our mission of educating children from a Christian perspective. In late 2012, we launched the initial five-year Faith Reaching Further Campaign. This project positioned us to expand our early childhood education program, add much needed classroom space, improve facilities and capabilities, and give our children access to the most current educational technology.
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 that next year, we watched as the addition took shape. We added a new art room, three 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 a large cafeteria, giving us much needed space. The former music and art rooms were transformed into 3K and 4K classrooms. Everything was given a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting and floors were added where needed. Dedicated parents and supporters of the school volunteered many hours to make sure the work was completed on time.
On October 10, 2014, we once again gathered on the same spot we had just one year before to dedicate the building addition to God. You can view a brief video montage of the project here and a photo album of the project on our Facebook page.
We are grateful to all of those who gave to make this building expansion project a reality. We continue to build on the foundation our founding families laid for us – in faith we began, in faith we go forward.
