PRINCIPAL WELCOME

Bromwell Families,

It is with great honor that I join the Bromwell Community as your principal.  I am so excited for this opportunity and even more so to get to know all of the students, staff, and community members that make up this great school.

I am a values based school leader who prioritizes strong and trusting relationships. I believe through collaboration, transparent communication, and reflective conversations, we can create an environment in which every student succeeds. My student centered and service oriented approach is how I will engage all members of the community.

My career in DPS began as a special education teacher at McMeen Elementary.  I then transitioned into leadership as a Ritchie Intern.  Since that time I have served a few different roles all with the intention of expanding my leadership skills.  I served as the assistant principal at Samuels Elementary, Data Culture Coordinator and Instructional Support Partner both in central office, and the past two years as the assistant principal at Carson Elementary in the neighboring HillTop community.

As a lifelong learner myself, I look forward to leading the Bromwell community in their mission and vision to ensure all students have the opportunity to explore and engage in their learning with creativity and passion.  I am dedicated to maintaining an atmosphere of excellence for all students and will ensure that every child is safe, thriving, and discovering the joy of learning.

I look forward to sharing more with you about myself, and again getting to know all of you! I hope you have had a wonderful summer and you will be hearing from me again soon.  I am truly honored to be your new principal.

Sincerely,

Valecia von Weise, Principal

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

SPF Report Card

The School Performance Framework (SPF) is a comprehensive system to help schools focus on strengths and areas for targeted improvement. A wide range of measures are used to calculate ratings of how well each school supports student growth and achievement, and how well it serves students and families. Visit the Denver Public Schools SPF page for more information.

Unified Improvement Plan

The Unified Improvement Plan is our school improvement plan. It is based on academic and growth data for reading, writing and math. We also reflect on the past year’s goals to assess our effectiveness. Based on the data from the previous years, we set goals and identify instructional strategies or professional development that will support the school goals. We also identify action steps that will lead us to success.

HISTORY OF BROWMELL

Bromwell’s rich history dates back to the wooden frame school built in 1867. The school was then named for the town of Harman, and was a part of Arapahoe County. The 320 acre town site was named after its founder, Edwin P. Harman, and his wife Lou. Harman School was the center of social and political activity. Church meetings and the Town Board met there until 1891, when the Town Hall was built at 4th and St. Paul.
