Dear Families of Brookside Students,

It's hard to believe that the end of the year is here! On behalf of our entire staff, we'd like to thank you for your support of our Brookside students and staff. We truly appreciate all the support of our fabulous PTO and dedicated volunteers who help make Brookside a great place to grow!

There will be new start and end times for Brookside next year! School will begin at 8:10 and end at 2:30. Tuesdays will still be minimum days, 8:10-1:10. Our TK schedule will be 8:10-11:35, or 11:50 (if students stay for lunch). Brookside Preschool hours will be 8:15-11:15 a.m. session, and 12:00-3:00 for p.m. session.

Thank you to Jenny Nelson and our PTO team! We love you and all of your positive help and contests to support student attendance, reading and other academic areas.

Winners this month include:

Box Top (end of year) $25 Visa Card: Room 2 (Mrs. Gonzalez), Room 4 (Mrs. Bergmann), and Room 28 (Mrs. Saperstein); Friday Spirit Winners: Room 20 (Mrs. Cooley- ice cream party), Room 32 (Mrs. Hammond- ice cream party), and Room 5 (Mrs. Ostrowski- $15 Amazon Card). Our big attendance winner for April was Jed Swearengin from Room 3 (Miss Dawna). He and his family won $50 to El Mexicano in Willits. The May Perfect Attendance Winner is Cole Weisman. He and his family won a $50 gift card to our Noyo Theater. Your generosity is allowing our PTO to do these awesome awards again next year! Jenny wants everyone to know that the Color Run will be returning in the fall!

Your child’s end of year report card will be available to view on the Parent Portal beginning Friday, June 8th. Please log onto brks.willitsunified.com, and click on the link for the Parent Portal. If you cannot remember your log-in information, please call Erica or Heather in the office at 459-5385. While you are on the Parent Portal, please UPDATE EMERGENCY INFORMATION! Current contact information is critical to the care and safety of your child.

We have already started the planning and preparation process for the 2018-19 school year. Unfortunately, we will be saying farewell to several of our staff members who will be leaving. We would like to thank them for their dedication and commitment to our students during their time at Brookside. Happy Retirement to our dear Kindergarten teacher, Miss Dawna Allen! Thank you and farewell to teachers Miss Michelle Kluskiewicz, Mrs. Lisa Bowles, Mrs. Meghan Kimsey, Mrs. Melissa Smilgys; Speech Language Pathologist, Mrs. Lenore Hansen; School Psychologist Intern, Ms. Karey Spivey; Health Assistants, Kristine Patereau and Amanda Maciel; and Para-Educator, Monique Smith. Good luck on your new adventures; you will be missed! A special thank you to Marette Myers who stepped out of retirement to teach ELD since January.

Having your support was an essential part of the year. Thank you to each and every one of the parents, grandparents, and other friends and family members who have taken the time to volunteer in the classroom and on field trips this year. Your dedication and support has not gone unnoticed. If you are not fingerprinted through Willits Unified School District (WUSD), please contact Rachelle Summers at 459-5314 for information. For your child’s safety, all volunteers must be fingerprinted with WUSD.

Please read with your child every day this summer. You will be surprised at the academic growth of your child, and reading daily will help prevent the ‘summer slide’ (potential loss of learning that occurs over the summer break). If you need books, we are giving away a mountain of gently used books in English and Spanish. Contact the office for a supply.

Important Dates

 Thank you for trusting us with your child’s education. Have a fantastic summer!

Most sincerely,

Kathy Crossman
