Heath Brook School...

Information and news from and to the school community

Hello from Mrs. Gerrish - with added Specialist Calendar

We made it to week three of school! Lots of smiling faces make these hallways and classrooms full of the positive energy that is Heath Brook School.

We are thankful to our PAC for the delicious and welcoming staff breakfast last Tuesday morning. The first meeting of the year was Wednesday, Sept 7th at 6:30 in the library. It was terrific to see so many parents there!

We are looking for parents to serve on this year's School Site Council. One parent to represent those at each grade - preschool, kindergarten, first, and second. Please send Mrs. Gerrish an email if you are interested in serving. If there are multiple offers of help, in accordance with state law we will hold an election by sending a Google Form survey to each household on file.

We will meet once a month at a time that works for the majority of members of the council.

We will also be looking for four teachers to serve on this year's council.
