A heartfelt thank you to Mrs. Maloney for organizing a successful Trunk or Treat! What a wonderful community event including families and staff!

Recess Reminder - As the weather turns cooler, please make sure your child is dressed for the weather. In staying with district procedure, students will go outside if the temperature/wind chill is above 5 degrees. Additionally, playground conditions are taken into account. All research supports the benefit of daily exercise and fresh air, so we want our students prepared for their short outdoor exercise break!
Next PTA Meeting on 11/1/17 at 7:00 PM!!! - Just a friendly reminder from the PTA that our next PTA meeting will be on 11/1/17 at 7:00 PM in the Brooks cafeteria. In an attempt to do something a little different, we are asking everyone that comes to please bring a dish to pass! Main course, side dish, dessert, you pick! We will have a pot luck meal prior to the start of the meeting so that everyone that is there has a chance to chat with the board and we can get to know people better in a more relaxed setting.
Childcare will be available in the gymnasium, so feel free to bring the kiddos along with!
On the Radar/Reminders:
Message from the Nurse - Illinois Vision Exams are due by November 15, 2017. This is a requirement of the State of Illinois for Kindergarten and New Students to Brooks. If you need a form, it may be downloaded from eSchool Home Access.
Transportation Changes: Each day, we dismiss nearly 800 children. In order to make sure your child is in the correct location, we ask for your help. If your child’s dismissal plan changes, please write a note to your child’s teacher. This information gets shared with the office. In addition, if your child rides a daycare van, you must contact the daycare as well. Daycare vans are often delayed as they wait for students who they think they should picked up. Thank you in advance.
Pop Tab Collection - Brooks School is now collecting pop tabs which will be donated to Ronald McDonald House. The pop tabs are recycled, resulting in a monetary donation back to Ronald McDonald House. This incredible organization provides housing for children and families going through medical challenges. If you would like to save and donate your pop tabs, they may be dropped off in the school office. Thank you!
Labeling Envelopes: When sending in money for various programs or events, PLEASE clearly label with your child’s first and last name, classroom teacher, and program (ex. lunch money, field trip, PTA, etc)
