Brookside PROUD is Polite, Responsible, Outstanding, Understanding, and Dependable. Let your child know when you observe them displaying PROUD actions and thinking!
Read-A-Thon (March 2, 2018) is a school-wide celebration of reading coordinated by a team of volunteers and Brookside Parent Club. The Read-A-Thon is our only fundraiser of the year and our goal this year is to raise $55,000 to fund programs and supplies at Brookside including PE equipment, emergency supplies, and classroom materials, as well as ongoing projects to beautify and equip our campus.

Safe Routes to School Wednesday Walk and Roll
Every Wednesday, parent volunteers have a welcome table set up to greet and scan-in "Walk and Roll" students who have walked, biked, carpooled or bussed to school.
Teach your child to set their alarm clock twenty minutes early on Wednesdays to allow for any extra time needed to walk or roll to school. Safe Routes to Schools encourages all families to travel green at least once a week throughout the school year. Walking is healthy for our children and our planet!
Need a Scanner Tag?
Your student needs to register for a scanner tag to take part in the Safe Routes to School Walk and Roll program. You can print out a registration PDF here. Fill it out and then turn it in at the school office.
If you are interested in volunteering as a Wednesday morning scanner - even just once in a while - please email Maureen and she can get you set up.
