Principal's Update
DATE September 23, 2018

• Congratulations to Katherine Guajardo! Katherine, a current Brookdale third grader, had a winning poster for the Naperville Crime Prevention Calendar. She received a special award on September 17th from the Naperville City Council. We are very proud!

• If you are able to assist the Reading Department to help organize the guided reading collection, please sign up here. Parents can come and work any day or time that works best in their schedule. For questions contact Anne Schmalandt (Reading Specialist) at: Thank you for your help!

• There are times when our students get their clothes dirty, spill food/drink on them or have an accident. We like to keep extra clothes, especially shorts and pants, on hand for these occasions. If you have any extra clothing you'd like to donate in the small and medium sizes (for both genders), we would be very appreciative.

• All of our students engaged in Benchmark testing in the areas of English Language Arts and Math. By mid-October, the results of this testing will be available to parents via Home Access Center (HAC). Please look for more information for an exact date.

• Follow Brookdale School on Twitter @BrookdaleBobcat. We use #Brookdalepride to show all the fun and cool things going on at Brookdale Elementary and the community!
