Monday Message for January 8, 2018

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! 2018 is off to a great start here at Brookside and we appreciate your support and help.

We have some great things happening this week:

  • SEP conferences are Thursday, January 11th. You should have received an invitation to sign up with your student’s teacher. If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you!

  • 1st-3rd grade choir also begins on Thursday, January 11th. Permission slips were sent home last week students. The choir will meet on Thursday mornings in room 19 at 8:00 am. If your student would like to participate in the choir, there are additional permission slips in the office.

  • There is no school on January 12th for teacher development day and also, no school on January 15th for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Have a great week,

Dana Beckert

It's good to be back from winter break and settle into school again. The term end next Thursday with SEP's starting at 3:30. No school Friday the 12th or Monday the 15th.
