March 2019 Edition~ Brook Haven School~ Sebastopol, CA

Leaping Into Spring!

The arrival of Spring always evokes differing emotions. We are thrilled that there are fewer rainy-day recesses, concerned that we have so much more to teach with so little time and in awe that the end of the school year is in sight. So much has truly been accomplished this year and we are thankful that you've partnered with us this year. As we move into the home stretch of the 2018-2019 school year, we are encouraging students to end the year strong. Students in grades 6, 7, 8 will be receiving progress reports in the mail by April 5th if they have a C- or below in any class.

Please take the time to honor your student's achievement and effort and help them plan ways to organize or adjust their study habits, if necessary, in order to end the year on a high note. Please encourage your student to connect with their teacher(s) if there are specific concerns and as always, feel free to reach out to our teachers if you have questions.

We are so fortunate to have a team of teachers who go above and beyond to support our students. Looking forward, the week of May 6 is Teacher Appreciation Week. If you are willing to help honor our teachers & staff during that week, please let me know. It would be wonderful to have a team of parents working together to share our appreciation for our staff!

Did you attend the SEF Gala? We are so fortunate that Park Side parent Deirdre Lordan stepped up and brought the wonderful idea that raised over $7000.00 for our schools. Deirdre and a small team of parents were able to pull off a fun-filled & profitable event that was a great community building activity. We can't wait to see what is in store for next year!

The Jog A Thon is coming to Brook Haven on Wednesday, May 22. If you are willing to help with the planning please let me know ASAP. We want to find creative ways to get our older kids on board with fundraising for our schools.

Do you have your yard sign? Have you noticed them in front of the school? Stop by the office to pick up your yard sign & share your love for our schools with your friends and neighbors. We can't wait to see where they pop up next!

Happy Spring!
