Brookside elementary students brought in a lot of canned goods today in their Santa Hats and then were able to wear their hats the rest of the day. This week we are collecting goods for Tabatha's Way. Tomorrow students can donation sweaters and coats and wear their ugly Christmas sweaters for the day. Our collection for the refuges continues as well until Wednesday with Lifting Hands International. They need girls and boys underwear, baby diapers and wipes, and blankets.

This week the school’s digital coach, Myles Peterson, helped Mrs. Pickering’s 1st grade class learn to code. It’s Computer Science Education Week and all of Brookside was challenged to participate in Hour of Code. Students and teachers were asked to complete one hour of code throughout the week and Mr. Peterson took on the task of helping classes get started. All of Mrs. Pickering’s students were able to use iPads and learn to code. The best part about it was that the kids were being challenged, engaged, and having fun.

Here at Brookside on our tree in the office area are hand ornaments with a gift suggestion for a refugee child. We are doing this with Lifting Hands International which ships donations directly to refugee children in Jordan and Lebanon. The process is simple: Choose a hand off the tree, bring the gift back by December 20 and share the word with friends and family. Needed items are baby wipes, diapers, fleece blankets, boys underwear and girls underwear, socks, pants, and sweaters. You can visit: www.liftinghandsinternational.org for more ideas on how to help.
