We are excited to announce our box top week has started! Please collect box tops and send them with your students. The PTA is sponsoring a competition this week – the class that brings in the most box tops will receive a reward. The box tops program is a great way for the PTA to earn extra money that will directly affect our students.
Also, the PTA has extra school t-shirts. If you would like a school shirt please contact our PTA president, Rachel Orme, or talk to the secretaries in the office. Each Friday is spirit day and it is fun to see everyone in their Brookside t-shirt.
6th grade orchestra started this week but it is NOT too late to join. If your 6th grader would like to participate, come into the school office and sign up. Please feel free to come to orchestra on Monday morning at 8:00 in room 19. If you don’t know what instrument you want to play, you can try some out and decide.
Looking forward, next week is no screen week. During this week, students are encouraged to decrease their screen time and increase other fun and creative activities in their free time. There will be more information coming next Monday!
