Well, Hello April! I hope you are all having a wonderful Spring Break. At the Brooks, our break was filled with dump runs, donation drops, back yard projects and family time! It was awesome and felt productive! 

Read A Thon: This week officially kicks off our Read A Thon. Our goal is $75 per student with a school goal of $30,000. This is our one and only big fundraiser this year. We are excited and it is going to be awesome! If your child worked on the Read At Home Bingo sheet, please share pictures!! Also, have them bring them to school on Tuesday to get raffle tickets! Here is a copy of the documents including the BINGO Sheet

Scholastic Book Fair: We will have another Book Fair from 4/12-4/16. Like last time, small groups of students from each class will go to the book fair and make purchases. We will be sharing book previews and more information soon! 

Don't Forget!! Time to Order Your Yearbook NOW: If you are going to order a yearbook, do it now! We actually place our yearbook order now, so if you are going to get one, don't wait! This is a year we will never forget. Don't miss your chance to get a yearbook! 

We will have a yearbook this year and it is going to be awesome!! Luisa is spearheading it and doing an amazing job! She took all of the pictures, came up with the theme and is running with it. It is going to be a special yearbook. Don't miss out!

Spring is coming!! And so is Spring Break! The rest of the school year is going to fly by! There is no doubt this has been both the longest and the shortest year ever! 

Upcoming Events: When we get back from Spring Break, there are a few events coming. 

First, is our Read-A-Thon(4/6-4/16). Information will be coming home Friday. Many of you opted out of fundraisers by making a donation. That is wonderful. Students can participate and earn tickets by simply reading. 

Second, is the Book Fair(4/12-4/16): We will have another book fair that will run just like it did last time. Students will come to the library in small groups to look at and purchase books. More information to come. 

Also, Pennies for Patients: Pennies for Patients is also coming! This is one of our favorite fundraisers to give back to our community and help others. 

Please see the latest communication from the district:

And like that, March is here! Just a few weeks until Spring Break. Then, as we all know, the rest of the year flies by! I cannot believe it. Take a second to reflect on what a year it has been! It was not easy, but we all worked together and overcame each obstacle. It is nothing short of amazing! You are all amazing! 

Statewide Testing/ CAASPP: This part of the year is when we have our statewide testing for grades 3-5. Parents, look out for an email coming this week with information about testing. 

DROP OFF REMINDER: When you are dropping off your children in the morning, please pull all the way forward. It causes a lot of traffic issues when cars stop right in front of school. This last week, there was almost an accident as a result of this. We have people available to help your child get to class, if they need it. Or, you are welcome to park and walk your child to the gate. Thank you for your cooperation.

Registration:  Please register your children even if they are returning students. There will be an option for distance learning again next year. Fill out the included survey. Click here to register: '21-'22 Registration 

Lost and Found: Lost and Found items are hanging on the gate in front of school. If your child is missing a sweatshirt or jacket, please come take a look. We donate the items if they are not claimed.

This Friday, wear your best Zoom Attire. That means you look great on top and wear whatever you want on the bottom! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Sunday, February 21

 

Yet, another monumental event that our children get to witness. The touchdown of 'Perseverance,' the rover, that landed on Mars. There is one thing I want my own children to get out of this event and that is the perseverance it has taken to make this happen! All of the hard work: the risk taking, the failing and the trying again. Simply incredible! It will be fun to see what we learn as we get more information from this mission. 

This week is conference week, so all of you will get to see what your students are learning and how they are doing. I love conferences with my children's teachers. It is so fun to hear their perspective and insight. Does anyone else get a little sad when their child moves on to middle school and there is no longer a conference? Or is it just me? 😊

IMPORTANT: For conference week, ALL KINDERS will attend school from 8:15am-11:15am. Please set your alarms and reminders! Students grades 1-5 will all be released at 11:35am.
