The Brackett PTO volunteers produce a handy little directory/handbook for the Brackett Community. Starting this year we will have some extra helpful information for parents including an improved school calendar and Brackett-specific information!

The Brackett Directory needs to be updated every year and parent participation is key to making it a success.

The school directory listings may only be used for school business and to connect with other families, it is especially helpful when you are trying to organize school events, playdates or birthday parties for your children!

How to Sign Up:

Visit and follow the login instructions.

Forgotten your password? No problem, just follow the password recovery directions & it will be sent to you automatically.

To be included in the directory you must enter Brackett, your child’s grade & teacher. Please update:

1. Parent and guardian information: make any changes and click save at the bottom.

2. Children information: make a selection for school, grade, and teacher for each student. Click save when you are done. Use the orange menu at the top of the page to navigate.

You will receive a confirmation email after you have completed these steps, which will indicate that you are connected to your student's corresponding school, grade, and classroom email lists.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to ensure your student is included in the Brackett School Directory! This information is also posted on the Brackett School website:

ANNOUNCING! Water Bottle Rockets at Robbins Farm Park! When: Sunday, October 19th from 1-3 pm. Read more (instructions attached).

The PTO Committee on STEM Enrichment would like to announce the annual launch of water bottle rockets in Robbins Farm Park.  We will be using our brand-new rocket launchers, which were recently purchased for the school by Brackett parents Sanjay Vakil and Naoka Carey. Next time you see Sanjay or Naoka , please thank them for this awesome donation!  You can make your own water bottle rocket ahead of time (see attachment for instructions) or bring your supplies and make it on site. Don't forget to bring some water to use as fuel.  We also recommend you consider wearing a bicycle or other helmet in case your rocket (or someone else's) homes in too closely on it's way back to earth.

Check out these videos from a previous launch - from the perspective of a camera attached in various strategic places, including on a rocket itself!
