May 2017 Newsletter


Dear Families of Brookside Students,

“Together may we give our children roots to grow and wings to fly! (Anon.)” During the month of May, Month of the Educator, let’s recognize our team of professionals who teach and inspire our children, and  keep them safe, who feed them, and bandage hurts, and who maintain our facilities and  keep the office, library, and bookroom running efficiently.  This month, let’s recognize the many contributions our team members make to our education community on a daily basis. Thank you Brookside teachers and staff members for your dedication, enthusiasm and heart. You make a difference every day!

Planning for next year…

A friendly reminder to all parents and guardians to please take the time to update your contact information and that of your emergency designees (telephone, cell, work number and address) using your Parent Portal account. We want to make sure that we always have the most current emergency contact information in our data base. If you have not created your account and need your verification ID please stop off at the office and we will be glad to help you.  We also use this information to print our emergency cards in August so we want to have accurate information in case we have to reach you. 

Providing input on your child’s teacher for next year

All students are taught the same standards and have a guaranteed curriculum regardless of classroom, still some families like to have the opportunity to provide input on student assignments. We consider input, but classes must be balanced to provide the best learning environment. You may request a parent input form for students entering Grades K-2 by calling the Brookside office at 459-5385, or by picking one up at our office. We accept input forms for Grades K and 1 until May 19th, and Grade 2 until May 12th. To be considered your form must list five teacher choices!
