Hello, Brockbank Families!
WE ARE READY FOR THE FUN RUN!!! We hope that you are encouraging your child to be ready for the FUN RUN, that will be this Wednesday! Please make sure that your child wears good walking shoes and brings a jacket! Also, please encourage your child to get pledges for the laps he/she plans to run, or he/she can collect money for a flat amount! You are welcome to come and walk with your child. We will have 4th, 5th, 6th, and kindergarten grades begin at 9:30, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and kindergarten grades begin at 12:30. This year, the money collected will go towards new benchmark kits, books, and charging stations for our Chromebooks and IPads. Checks or cash will gladly be accepted, no online payments will be available this year. PLEASE GET YOUR CHILD EXCITED ABOUT GETTING PLEDGES TO HELP OUR SCHOOL!
Learning Through Robotics: We are still accepting students for our Robotics class. It is held after school, every Thursday, for 9 weeks. This will be a great class where the students will be doing many hands-on activities with robots that they will build! Please contact the office if you are interested.
Picture Retakes: October 17th will be picture retakes! If you want your child’s pictures retaken, please send the packet with your child to school.
Reflection Contest: Reflections!
What: PTA believes that all children deserve opportunities to explore and be involved in the arts. Reflections began in 1969 and has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork. Our Theme this year is "Within Reach". We are looking for original works of art in photography, dance choreography, literature, visual art, 3-D art, film production, and music composition.
Who: Students at Brockbank all ages and abilities!
Where: Entries due Tuesday October 24th. Entry forms will be available at the office.
Why: A great way to let your student express their original ideas! Explore the theme and then let them create!
Any questions email Cindy Shepherd at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to see what the incredible students at Brockbank create!
District Survey: You should have or will be receiving an email asking you to participate in a district survey. This survey is to get your input on important matters with the upcoming bond. Please take a minute and fill that out so that your voice can be heard. Thanks so much!
Popcorn Friday: October 13th will be our first Popcorn Friday. The bags of popcorn will be 50 cents a bag!
Dads and Doughnuts: October 18th will be our fun Dads and Doughnuts activity! We invite you to bring your child and kick off the Book Fair with this fun event.
Fall Break: October 19-20! Enjoy!
Book Fair: Our PTA Book Fair will be scheduled for October 18th, then the 23rd-26th. We appreciate your support for the Book Fair, and appreciate all the hard work the PTA does in getting this ready!
