The PTA has put together an exciting week for the students and teachers. Below are all of the ways the students can participate. Thanks for all you do!
I would like to introduce you to your new principal for the 2017-2018 school year. Her name is Dana Beckert and she is wonderful. I've had many chances over the years to rub shoulders with Mrs. Beckert and know you will love her. I've already told her how amazing your children are and how supportive you, as parents are. I'm so grateful for the time I've been at Brookside and know she will continue making our school the best place for your children.
Here is a little more of her many accomplishments:

Mia Ollerton and Michael Mayo in the 3rd grade won the Zitzel Award for the best visualization during a read aloud assignment.
Many classes at school had fun celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday. Mrs. Hobbs and Ms. Duston's class did an informational writing piece about Thedor Seuss Giesel all week. Then on Thursday, we celebrated with reading, art projects, treats, and writing assignments.
Mrs. Smith's first grade had a read across America party where they all brought their pillows and blankets and read.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
