Bracher Elementary School Home




  • If your child is staying home from school, please telephone the school at 423-1200 IN THE MORNING ON THE DAY OF THE ABSENCE. For your convenience, there is a 24-hour voicemail on which messages can be left. Any absences that are not reported by a parent or guardian will be recorded as an unexcused absence in the student’s permanent record.





Bracher Elementary School is proud to offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) opportunities to our students.  Our afterschool, free STEAM enrichment program is open to 2nd - 5th grade students on a space-available basis to those who complete a STEAM application in October of each school year.  Applications for the STEAM after school enrichment program are available annually in October via the weekly "Wednesday folder" sent home with your student and/or on our schoolloop website.  Our STEAM program provides hands-on work via scientific experimentation, applied mathematics, Hour of Code, explanations of electricity, creative engineering opportunities, a year-end annual STEAM Expo for students to make and share individual/team projects and more!  

As well, as of the 2015/16 school year, STEAM activities are also being offered directly in the classroom to K - 5th grade students.  By doing so, Bracher students get even more exposure to the exciting world of STEAM learning and preparation for continued academic success


We are looking for donations of these items.  It is completely voluntary to make a donation and no donations are required to participate in the program. If you are able to donate though, these are items we are interested in.

Donations can be brought to the front office or brought to Rm G on Wednesday.

Thank you in advance.
