Every spring, Denver Public Schools sponsors an outdoor Shakespeare Festival on the grounds of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Many DPS schools participate, however, Bromwell makes a point to enter several Shakespearian scenes each year.
The children who participate in the Shakespeare Festival always come away from the event saying it is one of their favorite memories of Bromwell.

Avid4 Adventure serves to inspire life-long active outdoor lifestyles and environmental stewardship through experiences that provide personal development and memorable adventures.
Students do everything from kayaking to rock climbing to mountain biking. They work on individual skills as well as team building skills. It is a day students look forward to with great anticipation. We rotate Avid4 Adventure each year with a traditional field day.
At Bromwell, the opportunity to participate in Avid4 Adventure comes in part from a PTSA grant given each year.
Bromwell is fortunate to work each year with the Missoula Children’s Theater Company. All grades at Bromwell are welcome to participate in the production, which is performed with fantastic costumes and remarkable enthusiasm by the kids. The production is performed at the end of just one week of intensive rehearsals.
The mission of MCT is “The development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.” To learn more about Missoula Children’s Theater, visit www.mctinc.org
Multicultural Week at Bromwell has two main purposes:
- To demonstrate knowledge of and interest in students, their cultures, communities, and/or their background experience.
- To demonstrate culturally responsive teaching into classrooms by integrating students’ cultures within the classroom and celebrating diversity.
Multicultural Week kids off with an all-school dragon parade assembly in the gym, celebrating the Chinese New Year. During the week, students learn in the classroom and during special events about different world cultures. The week is packed with presentations by teachers, parents, and special guests. It all wraps up with Multicultural Night, which showcases the artistic, musical, and dance talents of Bromwell students and teachers and builds our community spirit with an open potluck.
Multicultural Week grew out of a day-long celebration that began at Bromwell years ago and was supported by many hard-working parents and staff.
The Valentine’s Day Card Sale is a tradition at Bromwell. For our 2014 card sale, Bromwell teamed up with Swoozies (589 Fillmore Street). Swoozies displayed the beautiful cards made by our students in art class. Proceeds from the card sale went to Project Valentine. A huge thank you to our dedicated art teacher, Ms. Lauren Shellberg and the parent volunteers who made this a success; and way to go, student artists!
After our 2013 card sale, we received this lovely thank-you note from Project Valentine:
To the wonderful kids of Bromwell Elementary:
Project Valentine sends you a huge THANK YOU for donating your beautiful handmade valentines to our care packages! The money you donated went to buy fun items to be added to the care packages: puzzle books, reading lights, hand warmers, gum and mints, hats and scarves, scarves, and books. The men, women, and children who received these bags were sitting for many long uncomfortable hours getting medicine to cure their cancer…and you helped MAKE THEIR DAY WONDERFUL. They smiled, laughed, and said “wow!” over everything they got in their care package, especially your valentines. I hope you are proud of yourselves for making such a difference in a cancer patient’s life. I know *I’m* proud of you.
Amy Smeester, Vice President of Project Valentine
