It has been a wonderful beginning to the new school year. Thank you to those who were able to attend the Brookside’s Open House on Monday afternoon. There is always so much excitement in the air as teachers and students meet each other and relationships are formed.
On the first day of school, the student body came together for an opening assembly. We recognized students and teachers who were new to Brookside. We also introduced this year’s theme, “BEE a Leader”. Students will learn about a specific leadership skill each month. We will recognize those students who put the skills into practice and they lead out at school.
Planning time, specialty classes also began this week. We welcome two new specialty teachers so our staff:
P.E. – Heather Child (new)
Library – Trisha Olsen (new)
Fine Arts – Jill Tolley
Computers – Becky Williamson
This week we welcome our kindergarteners to school on the 29th! We are excited to have them and I look forward to getting to know them. Our kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Gallagher and Mrs. Broussard, are ready for a great year!
