January 5, 2017



Dear Brookside Families,


Happy NewYear! This is a terrific time to think about all the wonderful things the new year brings. Watching your children thrive with our outstanding teachers and para-educators, and caring supportive office, custodial and cafeteria staff members is immensely rewarding. While visiting classrooms, I see children who are curious, and eager to learn, and who are soaking up new knowledge. I am very proud of the students and staff at Brookside School, and I look forward to more great times in 2017.


Some Great Opportunities in January


  • January 10:PTO sponsored assemblies throughout the day by artist Alana Tillman, who paints using her mouth and feet. She shares her story to encourage young people to overcome their adversities, and to help inspire students. 
  • Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 16th-NO SCHOOL
  • January 11: PTO Meeting @ 3:30 in room 6
  • January 12: Vision Screening by Nurse Gaye and Doctor Earl Myers. 
  • January 13: PTO sponsored Pajama Day! 
  • January 19 and 20: PTO sponsored Book Giveaway! 
  • January 26: No Fear/no judgement Parenting Classes begin weekly for seven weeks. 9:00-10:30, Room 20. Contact Jackie Herz @ jackieherz.willitsunified.com. Meet people and make new friends, pick up a tip or two and enjoy complimentary breakfast. 
  • PTO reading Incentive Program is in full swing! When you log the time you spend reading with your child- and notify the teach(through a form from the teacher) the PTO will place a shape onto your child's classroom "chalkboard" in the cafeteria. The class at each grade level with the most minutes read at home will win a PTO sponsored fieldtrip!
  • PTO Giving Tree: The PTO hung a beautiful tree ( painted by parent Karen Mattson) in the office hallway. Teachers may post on paper apples items needed in classrooms, and family members and community members who want to donate to our school can take a paper apple with an item listed, shop and return the purchased item to the office. Please ask in the office for more information. 


A special thank you goes to our amazing PTO. We are extremely fortunate to have such a supportive group of parents and family members. Please join our PTO! We have a new group of officers who are leaning the ropes and could really use your support. Please contact Chrystina Patterson at chrystinalynette@yahoo.com for details.


We are eager to share 2017 with you and your children! 


Most sincerely, 


Kathleen Crossman, Principal
