Family Resource Coordinator
One resource that Broadwater School is very fortunate to have is our Family Resource Coordinator (FRC). Claire Habein is currently serving as our FRC and is a valuable member of the Broadwater community. In addition to her FRC position, Mrs. Habein also serves as our school counselor. She has vast experience working with students and families and is a credit to Broadwater School. We are very lucky to have her! If you are new to Broadwater, chances are you will meet her very early on. If you have been at Broadwater for a while, and have questions about resources at the school or in the community, she is a wealth of knowledge. Please feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 406.281.6426.

Box Tops for Education
Broadwater School participates in the Box Tops for Education Program. Each year, our school receives money back from this program which allows us to purchase much needed supplies and materials for our students. To learn more about this program CLICK HERE or call our Family Resource Coordinator, Claire Habein at 406.281.6426.
At Broadwater School, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of ongoing parent communication and support. Our mission states that we are partners with parents and families throughout the journey that is elementary school. It is only with your help that our students will be successful in and out of school. We hope that you will join us, one way or another, this year as we work to provide our students the most relevant and meaningful learning opportunities possible.
Stand with Us Against Bullying
Our district takes the issue of bullying very seriously. We now have a resource available for parents and students that will provide a safe and effective way to report possible harassment, intimidation or bullying situations. Visit the District Bullying page for more information.
BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES
During April and May, we encourage parents to order school supplies for the next school year. We have found this company 1st Day School Supplies, to be a great resource. They offer top of the line supplies (that our teachers love!), parents can order online and that's it! The supplies come directly to the school, in a box with the student's name on it. The box is placed on your child's desk in late August, just in time for school to start!
