April 2018 Monthly Newsletter

Dear Brookside Families:

I hope you enjoyed our lovely spring break and that you and your child are ready to conquer the remainder of the school year! Report cards are available for you to view on Aeries. Go to your Parent Portal to view them. If you have any questions, please call our office at 459-5385. 

Kindergarten Registration is April 26-27 at Brookside- Spread the word!

The Parent Portal is open for Kindergarten (new K and TK students). Please spread the word to any families of incoming Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten students to enroll ASAP so we can best plan our Kindergarten staffing.  If your child turns 5 years old by September 1st, 2018- he or she is eligible to start Kindergarten in the fall. If he or she turns 5 between September 2-December 2, 2018- he or she can begin Transitional Kindergarten. NOTE: TK will be a half day next year, from 8:25-11:35 (11:50 if student stays for lunch).

Big Winners!

Kindergartner Deegan Swensen, a student in Mrs. Barbarie Gonzales’ class, and his family, were delighted to win a $50 gift card to Tango! Deegan came to school every day and arrived on time during the month of March. Our PTO awards a gift certificate from a local business to a student with perfect attendance. Keep up the great attendance! Thank you, PTO!


Our Friday Spirit Winners for the month of March are the students in Room 15 for Kindergarten, Room 33 for Grade 1, and Room 27 for Grade 2. Way to go students! Each class won a gift card to Amazon. Thanks, again, PTO!

Open House April 19th (5:15-6:30)!

Family Members, please be sure to attend your child’s Open House on Thursday, April 19th. We will begin with our traditional Kindergarten La Raspa dance at 5:15, behind Room 3 on the playground. The Open House begins in classrooms at 5:30 until 6:30. This is your opportunity to see the exciting work your child has done, and to also take your child to the classrooms in the next grade-level and meet the teachers.
Grade 1 Looping Next Year
As a result of parent surveys sent out by our superintendent, we are offering looping next year in Grade 1. At least one Grade 1 teacher will be looping next year. That means the students in the Grade 1 class will stay with the same teacher for Grades 1 and 2, for two years. If you are interested in having your child loop, please let your child’s Kindergarten teacher or let the office know as soon as possible so we can place your child on the list. We will make every effort to accommodate your wish, but cannot guarantee it because there are many factors considered when balancing classrooms.
