March 2017  Newsletter

Dear Brookside Families:

Brookside students and staff members are incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated PTO team. If you have not met our PTO officers, please take a minute to do so. They are quite honestly, the most selfless, giving, energetic, fun, reliable, and good-hearted officers I have had the good fortune to work with! There is only team spirit in this group of brand new officers- if the students need something- these folks make it happen. Every student at Brookside has benefitted from their hard work in fundraising (like the Color Run- how much fun was THAT!) and in holding events (like our free book give away events, exciting assemblies and field trips, and fun family nights). Our staff members appreciate the financial support offered to each teacher, and special awards like the big expenditure on PE equipment. Every one of our students reap the benefits of our marvelous PTO. They are a small group- but they get it done! Please consider helping with an event. Just try one event; I bet you will like it and will join them in other events! Please email Christyna at chrystinalynette@yahoo.com, or Jenny at dragginfeet@hotmail.com.
