Fall is well underway and the weather is absolutely perfect! Our students have been working hard to make academic progress during term 1 and what a joy it has been to see their successes!
Just a quick reminder that Fall Break will be October 13, 14 and 17 this year. That's right! We will not have school on Monday, October 17 as that will be a Parent Teacher Conference Comp day. Enjoy your 5 day weekend! I hope you enjoy your Fall Break and take some time to rejuvenate and reenergize.
Thank you to each parent, teacher, faculty and staff member, as well as each child for your dedication and commitment to education. We are so blessed to have a supportive Brookside community!
Ms. Jennifer Grant
