Dear Brookridge Familes,
It's already February...where did the time go? We've had many days off due to the weather so we will be working hard to catch up on material and lessons. We are into the third quarter and spring break will be here before you know it!
This month we will have our annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pasta for Pennies campaign, our American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart, our 2nd graders will take the IOWA and CoGAT tests, and our PTA will host our annual Valentine's Day parties.
Please note that parent teacher conferences are scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27th from 3:30-5:30 and 6:30-9:00 p.m. There is no school on Feb. 17th (Presidents' Day) and Feb. 28th (Staff Professional Day).
February is also Black History Month. Black History Month is a special time to learn about the way African Americans rose up from slavery to build better lives for themselves. It also teaches us about the way African Americans have helped shape our country’s history and culture. Announcements will be made during the month of February to highlight Black History. Ask your student what they learned about today.
Yours in education,
Patrick M. Yarman, Principal
Brookridge Elementary School
