Important Upcoming Dates: (new items are BOLDED)
Safety Update: In continuing to ensure our Bears are as safe as possible at school, Bromwell staff completed a Standard Protocol Response training on Thursday, April 15th. And a quick reminder that protocols for visitors/volunteers in the school will be changing to provide an extra layer of security (please be patient while we implement changes). Also, please find some additional safety information provided by DPS HERE. If you would like to know about Bromwell’s Safety protocols please see the website HERE.
April CSC Meeting Update: As we continue to wait for updated choice information from DPS central offices, we will postpone the April CSC meeting. Several topics of discussion require utilizing first round Choice information, therefore we will hold off on scheduling our meeting until we have that data to share. Stay tuned!
DPS STEAM Expo & Robotics Exhibition: The DPS STEAM Department will be hosting a Sustainability Expo on Saturday, April 29 from 9AM-3PM at the new CSU SPUR Campus. All DPS students and families are welcome to attend this free event. There will be a Makerspace STEM Lab, Music & Dance Performances, Science Fair and so much more. Additionally, we will have some of our very own Bromwell 5th-graders participating in the Expo’s Mars Math Robotics Exhibition. Please see the event website for more information: https://

Culture Corner Continued! – In addition to Arab American Heritage Month, Easter and Ramadan, we also want to highlight Passover and World Autism Awareness Day.
The Jewish celebration of Passover 2023 began at sundown on Wednesday, April 5 and ends tonight! Passover is a festival of freedom. It commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt and their transition from slavery to freedom. The main ritual of Passover is the seder, which occurs on the first two nights (in Israel just the first night) of the holiday — a festive meal that involves the re-telling of the Exodus through stories and song and the consumption of ritual foods, including matzah and maror (bitter herbs).
Also in April, we celebrate Autism and Neurodiversity Acceptance Month and World Autism Awareness Day, which was on April 2. More than 5 million Americans live with autism, yet many of these individuals experience inequities in employment, housing, and income. We challenge ourselves to ponder how we as a community can raise awareness and promote acceptance to ensure changes are made to improve the quality of life for neurodiverse individuals and their families.
We recognize that the best resources are those that come from the members of the culture themselves. Please let us know if you want to share how you celebrate this month!
