• Be Bold and Go Gold. Every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. Show your support for childhood cancer awareness and dress your little Bobcat in gold this Friday, September 21. Brookdale is joining Hill and Metea schools in the nationwide campaign to call attention to the 13,500 children diagnosed with cancer each year.

• 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. For questions contact Anne Schmalandt (Reading Specialist) at: Thank you for your help!
