February has arrived! Throughout the month, our students will be dedicated to cultivating the character trait of kindness. Our PTA has organized a variety of activities to facilitate the learning and practice of acts of kindness. One such activity involves "Tag, You're It" cards. Students are urged to perform thoughtful acts for those around them, leaving a card behind after completing the act of kindness. The recipient of the card is then encouraged to pass on the kindness by performing another thoughtful act for someone else. We’re excited to see how many kind acts our students and teachers can do throughout the month of February!
As always, I want to thank you for all of the support you give to Brookside students, staff, and faculty. What a great place to be!
Valentine's Day Celebrations
This is a fun holiday and an opportunity for each student to feel valued and special. To do so, we ask that students send a valentine for each child in his/her class so that no one is left out. That said, students are not required to hand out valentines.
As a reminder, we encourage parents to give Valentine gifts to their children at home. Flowers, balloons, large stuffed animals, etc. will be held in the front office and given to students at the very end of the day to limit distractions in the classrooms.
