  • 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


Dear SCUSD families,

Santa Clara Unified School District is launching a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” To view school- and district-approved eflyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage. The button should begin appearing on your school's website over the next week or so.

It looks like this:


This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. 

No action is required on your part. If the district has your email address on file in our student information system, you will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school eflyers. If you do not receive a welcome email within the next week, contact your school office to update your email address on file.

To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “” to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school- and district-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school and district programs, activities, and events.
