Principal's Update
DATE September 9, 2018
• This week, the Busy Bobcat Store will open for the first time this year. This is a store run by fifth grade students. Brookdale students of all grades can purchase cool pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners and many other items. All items cost anywhere from 10 cents to about 50 cents.

• The Reading Department is in need of some volunteers to help organize the guided reading collection. This is for a short-term project with various tasks involved. You will work with a partner to help expedite this process. Please feel free to sign up to work with someone you know. Use this link to sign up: Guided Reading Project Volunteers.
