Principal's Message 9/2/18
September 2, 2018
Dear Brooks Families,
I hope you are enjoying the extended weekend. Last Friday, our teachers used the District Institute Day to focus on social/emotional learning, technology and academic curriculum planning for our students. It was a great day of learning together! Once again, congratulations to our staff and students on a wonderful beginning to the school year. Our routines are in place and learning is well underway!
Curriculum Night Save the Date
Please mark your calendar for Thursday, September 20 from 6:00-7:35 pm. Each teacher will give a short presentation regarding your child’s day, the curriculum and technology integration. Please be watching for a formal invitation coming later this week. The format and structure of this evening is for parents only. Children should not attend. Thank you for booking your babysitter early!
Parents needed to monitor students during our Fall Benchmarking scheduled for Tuesday, September 4 through Monday, September 10th. Please sign up for an available slot. PLEASE ARRIVE 10 MINUTES EARLY IN THE LMC! Thank you for your time - from the Brooks Intervention Team
PAWS for Tales
Our partnership with the Naperville Humane Society and the PAWS for Tales program will continue on Fridays starting at the end of September. This wildly successful program allows our students to read to therapy/rescue dogs. In order to participate, your child must have a release on file. Please fill out the attached Google Form for each Brooks Tiger in your family to grant permission to participate.

Reminder from the Health Office
If your child will be absent or late, please call the attendance office at 375-3200 x3. In addition, all Kindergarten and New Families are required by law to submit an Illinois Physical and Immunization Examination. This form was included in your registration packet. Your student's medical paperwork is due NOW. Please submit your medical forms. If you have any questions, please call the Brooks Office at 630-375-3202.
Important Reminder - district policy states that students may only ride the bus they are assigned. Please do not independently put your child on a different bus. In the event of an emergency, we would not know of this change.
