AAP Center Discussion
A parent meeting was held in December to discuss the overcrowding situation at Greenbriar West Elementary School. Several students from the Brookfield Elementary School attendance area attend the Advanced Academic Program (AAP) Center at Greenbriar West. Opening an AAP Center at Poplar Tree Elementary School is a proposal being discussed as a possible solution to relieve the overcrowding at Greenbriar West. Please take a few minutes to review the information.

A survey will be sent to all parents in January to gather additional feedback. We encourage everyone to participate.

Holiday Food Drive
Greenbriar West’s Holiday Food Drive ends on Friday, December 19. This food drive is a school-wide service learning project and our goal is to collect 1,600 food items (that’s less than 2 items per student!) for our neighbors in need. GBW students will also learn about hunger in our community. All items will go to the Western Fairfax Christian Ministries’ Community Food Bank, which is open to any family in need.
