Hello, Brockbank Families!
It's the final countdown!!! We are so excited that in just one week we will be back together as a Brockbank family! As I have seen a few faces around the school and in town, it makes me appreciate the students and families here, at Brockbank, and how much I have missed you all! We have worked hard to get the school looking neat and clean! Our classrooms are ready to go and our teachers are thrilled to be starting another new year! We have the best profession ever at the best school ever! Thanks so much for sharing your children with us!
I want to send you a few reminders as you get ready for the first day of school! If you have not heard who your child's teacher is, please call the school. We want all the students to know which class they are coming to.
Our Open House will be Monday, August 22, from 4:00-6:00 pm. You and your child are invited to come and meet your child's teacher, see the classroom, and get any important information from your child's teacher. The PTA will be selling T-shirts and our lunch clerk will be here to help with lunch payments. We look forward to seeing you all there!
The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 23, and will begin at 8:40, with the late bell ringing at 8:45. The school day will end at 3:00. Mondays will be our early out day, which is a change from last year. We will end school at 2:15.
Kindergarten will begin on Tuesday, August 30, and the morning session will be from 8:45-11:20, and the afternoon session will be from 12:20-3:00. On Mondays, the morning session will end at 11:00 and the afternoon session will begin at 12:00, and end at 2:15. Kindergarten assessments will be scheduled from August 23-29th. For those coming to the Kindergarten assessments, please know that you will also have a hearing assessment, so please don't leave until that is taken care of.
At the Open House, we will have our calendar magnets for you in the office. However, when I ordered them, I was still in the Wednesday-early-out-day mode, and had Wednesday printed instead of Monday. I'm sorry for that error!
We hope you enjoy these last few days of summer fun and do something special with your child! We love our students and are so excited to see them again!
Thanks for your support!
