Art Fair Parking Fundraiser Begins Tomorrow! We are in desperate need of people to help collect parking money this Saturday at the Brookside Art Fair. Most of the two-hour shifts between noon and 8:30 p.m. are completely unstaffed. It's an easy gig and generates a lot of money for our school. Kids are welcomed to help out. Sign-up HERE.

Yearbooks Have Arrived! Preorders will be distributed early next week. If you still want to buy a yearbook they're for sale in the office for $20. If you have any questions, email Liz

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week is NEXT WEEK. The PTA has a full week of pampering planned. We could really use your help. See the schedule HERE. Contact Tanesha to help out! We encourage parents and students to find their own ways to express their gratitude as well. 

Bike/Walk to School Day is Wed., May 8th. We will be meeting at Brookside Park, on the corner of Brookside Blvd. and 56th Street, by the baseball diamond at 7:45 am. All students may wear their spirit wear that day. 

MAP Testing has begun for students in grades 3-6. Our testing window goes through May 17. Please make sure students are well-fed, well-rested, at school and on time for testing. Lear more about MAP testing is HERE.

Last day of school for students is Tues., June 4. This will be a half-day, releasing at 11:40 a.m. ​

Our final PTA meeting of the year will be on Thurs., May 9. Dinner and childcare (ages 3 and up) are provided. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will begin at 6 pm. Please RSVP HERE! PTA meetings are open to the entire school body. In an effort to decrease waste, we encourage families to bring their own dishes and napkins. The PTA Executive Board elections will occur next week. We have several vacancies for both officers and committee chairs. If you're interested in a leadership position, contact Tim Hill to let us know how you wish to help.  

A huge thank you goes to Liz Townsend and the yearbook team! This hardworking group orchestrated the Dragon drawing competition, photographed activities throughout the year, collected hundreds of pics, organized them, collected payment, and are currently distributed yearbooks. It's a lot of work and we definitely appreciate these treasured keepsakes. Thank you so much for everything!
