I hope that you had a wonderful Spring Break with your families. Students shared many fun memories with me about their Spring Break. Encore Night was a big hit in early March! Unfortunately I missed this even, but I heard there was a great turnout of families who participated in art projects, drum fit, Camp Gladiator sponsored physical fitness stations, and the used book sale. We also kick started spring break with our annual Pre K-2nd grade Storybook Parade. I just love watching the kids parade in their wonderful costumes of some of their favorite book characters.
We will begin STAAR Testing this month and continue again in May. Please see the STAAR Information section in this newsletter for more information on campus closures and schedule adjustments.
We are grateful for our families who are sending in individual and class snacks throughout the year. Please remember that we cannot allow students to eat foods of minimum nutritional value during snack time. They can eat these during lunch, but we encourage students to eat appropriate portions. We follow this policy for birthday and special occasion snacks as well. Thank you for your continued support to ensure that our students receive healthy snacks during the school day.
This is our last newsletter for the school year. There are many upcoming events in April and May and we wanted you to have the calendar and news in advance for planning purposes. I hope that you can come out to Field Day. Please consider volunteering during a time slot when your children are not participating. This event needs many volunteers for a smooth and successful day.
Thank you for sharing your children with us every day and partnering with Brentwood!
