Dear Families of Brookside Students,

As we enter into the winter holiday season, you may be interested to know that we have a few opportunities to share with our community here at Brookside. First, in the school office we have bins for the community food bank food drive and our students are collecting canned and boxed food for the hungry in our area. Next, we are raising funds for the Brookside student and his family who lost their home in the recent fires. Donations can be sent to the office. Finally, our Giving Tree, located in the office is an opportunity to share with Brookside classrooms. Teachers have posted items their class would love.  

Report Card Update: Your child’s report card will be available for you to access on the Parent Portal beginning December 7th. If you are unable to access the report card online we can send it home with your child or mail it. Please complete a form in the office or classroom if you cannot access it online and want an alternate delivery method.

PTO Updates: Huge congratulations to our winning family for PERFECT ATTENDANCE! The family of Aidan Hult (Room 32) won a $25 gift certificate to April Mays Coffee for perfect attendance in October. 

Thank you, PTO for your exciting monthly give away.

Your family can win next month!


We are encouraging students to wear school colors - green and gold or spirit gear on Fridays! At the end of the month the class with the most spirit from each grade wins a fun prize. In September, Rooms 9 and 32 tied for Spirit Award and both classes received a fun prize!
