A Message From Our Principal

Dear Bracker Parents,

Welcome to a great school year!

We extend a warm welcome to you and your children to Robert M. Bracker Elementary. Our priority is happy, healthy, successful children. We know that working together will make our students shine!

There are lots of opportunities for our parents and community to help us provide the best for our Dolphins! We can use any and all volunteers to work with our students in class, tutoring, after school in the computer lab, helping at lunch and recess, or helping with the running club. There are even ways you can help at home.  

RM Bracker is a “B” school for the 2014-2015 school year. AZ Department of Education reviewed our testing results from spring 2014, and we earned a “B." You can see the data on our website, showing how we improved our growth scores, even though the gains were not enough to earn an “A." More information can be found on the department website. We also have data posted outside of the office for you to review.

Please look at our website for information on schedules, policies, and procedures. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school.
