Brooker Creek Elementary

Hello Brooker Creek Families,


Happy Spring Break!


It is hard to believe that it has been a year since our world has been somewhat turned upside down as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Last year, when we headed off to Spring Break there was a great deal of uncertainty. This year, we hope everyone has a relaxing and rejuvenating break knowing that we will be coming back on Monday, March 22nd. When we return, we will have just a little more than a quarter of the year remaining. While you are enjoying your break we would love to see our Bobcats continue to stay engaged in learning by working on Istation, DreamBox, MyON, or simply reading a book. Engaged brains are growing brains!


Please review the important dates below, including the upcoming FSA test administration window. Please note that next week our school will be closed, as well as the PCSB district offices for Spring Break. If you have an urgent need over break, please email me directly. I will be checking email periodically and communicating with the district about any positive COVID 19 cases only before our return.


Sincerely,


Jenn Mekler, Principal

Brooker Creek is Hosting Summer Bridge

Summer will soon be here, and we are thrilled to share information about our Summer Bridge program that will happen right here at Brooker Creek. Summer Bridge is an extended learning opportunity designed for all students. The purpose of this exciting program is to provide students with continuous learning throughout the summer to ensure they will be ready to begin the next school year with confidence and success.

Summer Bridge is designed to counteract what some education researchers refer to as the “summer slide.” Many children lose an average of two months of skills over the summer. The 4-week program includes acceleration and enhancement of skills in reading, mathematics, and science. Additionally, students will receive individualized instruction in the three core subjects using a blended cross-curricular model integrating the arts, technology, small group instruction, hands-on labs, and project-based learning.

Summer Bridge is Monday through Thursday, June 21, 2021, through July 15, 2021. The program hours are 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

REGISTRATION: Please visit the Student Reservation System at https://reservation.pcsb.org/and register your child. Log on with your Parent ID and Password. If you have forgotten your ID or password, or experience other problems, visit any PCS school to have your password reset. Registration begins on March 23, 2021. If you need any help registering for Summer Bridge, please contact us at school during regular business hours.
