As the weather starts to turn colder, please make sure your child has the proper clothing to go outside. We will go outside when it is cold and snowing. Our guidelines for cold temperatures will be followed and monitored closely. The temperature for outdoor recess is 20 degrees with the windchill.

Please make sure student have appropriate gear to be in the elements. Winter coats, gloves, hats are important. Students should have hats, gloves, winter coats, boots if it is snowing.


Shorts are not permitted from the end of the 1st quarter until the start of the 4th quarter. This is in our student handbook under dress code (guidelines #15).

Who has the winning Golden Ticket?

Dear families,

Last week a packet came home for SchoolStore. We are partnering with SchoolStore, each student has been given a packet with a Golden Ticket number. One student at Brooklyn School - Brooklyn OH 44144 has a winning Golden Ticket!

Thank you to everyone who has already participated. However, as of this morning, our school has not yet had a winner. The winning ticket is still out there!

To see if your family has it, grab the packet your child brought home, go to, and sign up for the program.

If you have not participated, the winning ticket may be in your hands. Please help us raise needed funds with this simple and safe email program by participating today. Your family may have the Winning Golden Ticket.
