We had so much fun at Brookside Elementary yesterday for Halloween. The students came in amazing costumes, had fun and yummy class parties, and everyone participated in the Halloween parade and watched the 6th grade perform Thriller for the school. We sure appreciated all the many hours of help and service our parents provided yesterday in the classrooms and coming to watch the parade and students. Thank you!
