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!
Brookside Elementary had an end of term party for all the student on Friday, October 27th. The each had a bag of popcorn, a capri sun and a laffy taffy stick to enjoy during their movie. Grades 4-6 watched Ratatouille and grades 1-3 watched Rio. Great job students on completing your 1st term, 3 more to go...
We have been having a fun time celebrating at Brookside Elementary this week for Red Ribbon Week. All the students have done an amzaing job participating each day. Today was crazy hair day and it was difficult for the teachers to choose the best one from each class there are so many amazing hair styles! Remember,
"It's Up To Me to be Drug Free!"
Dear Parents, We are so excited for our Halloween parade tomorrow. Here are just a few reminders:
Our sixth grade classes will be performing “Thriller” at 2:15 with the parade starting immediately after.
Please park in the school’s parking lot or on the side streets. Please do not use Reams parking lot.
Students are welcome to wear their costume to school that day, but masks can only be worn during the parade.
Please make sure costumes and masks are modest and not gory.
PM kindergarten will participate in the afternoon school parade at 2:15pm. AM kindergarten will parade their costumes at 9:15am through the kindergarten hallway.
This week at Brookside elementary is the PTA's Red Ribbon Week "PROUD TO BE DRUG FREE". Today everyone wore as much red as they could. The student from each class that wore the most read are pictured here. Tomorrow is wear your costume day, Wednesday: Internet safety is no joke-wackiest hairstyles, Thursday: Pedestrian safety is up to me-wear helmet or hat, Friday: Be a hero, not a bully-dress like favorite superhero.
This is a great week to talk together as a family about your goals and expectations to be drug free, commit to safety on the internet and on the road and to look for ways to be kind to others.
