Principal Announcement: Leaving Bromwell

May 7, 2019

Dear Bromwell Community,

It is with mixed emotions that I write to you today to inform you that I will be leaving Bromwell at the end of this school year. The past two years have been amazing as we have built up our community and worked hard, together, towards our school vision. This community welcomed my family and me with open arms and gave me an opportunity to lead, learn, and grow. 

As our family grew this past year we realized that we would like to be closer to family. Having not grown up near family myself, I knew that when I had kids I wanted them to be near grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. In this vein, I accepted a position with Saint Paul Public Schools, and we will be moving to Minnesota this summer. 

Please know that the Denver Public Schools is committed to finding an exceptional leader to become the next principal of Bromwell. 

I appreciate the many, many memories I have made together with the students, families, and staff.

As always, I thank you for your support of Bromwell and our vision.


Andrew Hodges, Principal

School Choice is Underway Through Feb. 15

School Choice
School choice is now underway until Feb. 15. Below is a quick summary of key steps. More details can be found on the DPS website and the info sheet at the bottom of this email. 

How does the Denver Public Schools (DPS) SchoolChoice enrollment work?
SchoolChoice is for any student who wants or needs to attend a new school for the following year, particularly “transitioning” students. All incoming ECE and Kindergarten students must complete an application. 

If your student is currently in kindergarten through 11th grade and is staying at his or her current school for 2019-20, you likely do not have to fill out a SchoolChoice application. Here is how SchoolChoice works:

1.    First, research DPS schools by reviewing the Great Schools Enrollment Guide, using School Finder and visiting schools of interest.
2.    Prioritize your student’s top preferences and rank them on the SchoolChoice application. We recommend listing multiple preferences, up to a limit of 12 schools.
3.    Submit your SchoolChoice application online during the Round 1 window. The SchoolChoice window for the 2019-20 school year opens on Jan. 15, 2019 and ends on Feb. 15, 2019 at 4 p.m.
4.    SchoolChoice combines your student’s top preferences with each school’s admissions priorities and available space. All students are randomly assigned a lottery number that will determine at which school they are awarded a seat. Students will be awarded a seat at their highest-preference school with an available seat. You will be notified in late March. Rank the schools in the order of your preference.

Principal Post: Happy New Year Edition 2019


Merry & Bright.

Dear Bromwell Families,

It is hard to believe that our winter break is here! I just want to take a moment to thank ALL of you for being an important part of Bromwell and wish you a happy new year.

The start to the 2018-19 school year has been amazing, and full of students and families exhibiting our core values of compassion, bravery, and being All In! I feel lucky to be part of this school community each and every day. Before we return from break I wanted to share some of the great things that have happened at Bromwell in 2018:

  • Assessment results from 2017-18 show that Bromwell students are continuing a long tradition of academic excellence, and also showed that we are significantly closing the achievement and growth gaps that have existed with our students of color. We also moved solidly in to the Green SPF category…and are on our way to a Blue/Distinguished rating! Your kiddos are crushing it!
  • Through generous PTA contributions and donations from parents, we have added two 3D printers, 5 touch screen TVs, 7 Ozobot robots, two soccer goals (debuting after break!), and 12 iPads!
  • Cheers to our Bromwell Annual Fund, which raised $107,000!
  • We have added a Bromwell app for sharing communication and updates – as well as our lunch menu!
  • The Winter Concert, showcasing the vocal talents of our ECE through 2nd grade students, delighted a full auditorium!
  • We added a full-time school psychologist, John Gallagher, who has been a great addition in working with students and teachers to create a compassionate and positive school culture.
  • Second Step Social Emotional Learning has been launched as a curriculum to all grades. The purpose of this is to provide students with good conflict resolution and develop strong social-emotional skills.
  • Bromwell classrooms have added over $4,000 in independent reading books, many of which feature diverse main characters, including race, culture, religion, and gender.
  • Students have shown great compassion this semester – gathering coats for a coat drive, caroling at Brookdale Senior Center, making winter care packages for the homeless, and putting together holiday baskets for Bromwell families.

Everyone here at Bromwell brings their best every single day, and works hard to put together a fun and rigorous experience for your child. The students come each day with bright faces and are eager to learn (which makes our job even better!)

I want to thank all of you for your commitment to your child’s education, and to our school community. Again, please accept our heartfelt wishes for a fun-filled and memorable winter break.

See you all on Monday, January 7, 2019!

Thank you for being ALL IN!

Andrew Hodges, Principal

It was a December to remember! Here are a few of our favorite things: preparing holiday baskets for Bromwell families, making care packages for the homeless (third grade), meeting a few new baby bear cubs, and filling our parents, friends and families full of holiday joy during the school’s second winter concert. Rock on Bromwell! And don’t worry, we’ve got lots of fun in store for the new year. Save these dates:
  • Cherry Cricket Dine Out Wednesday, January 16
  • Parent Party end of January (details coming soon!)
  • Principal Coffee & Science Fair January 25
