Family Book Fair Night
During the week of March 13-17, Brooks will host its Spring Book Fair.  Students will have the opportunity to preview books and shop during the school day.  In addition, we welcome our families to join us for Family Book Fair Night on Thursday, March 16 from 6:00-8:00 pm.  Proceeds from the book fair go right back into our LMC fund.  Book, web and technology resources are purchased with these funds.  Thank you in advance for your support!

ON THE RADAR/REMINDERS
School Supply Kits - Ordering Coming Soon
Soon, you will be receiving information about the school supply kit ordering process.  This process allows you to order a supply kit for the 2017-2018 school year, which contains items on the school supply list.  Then you can relax over the summer and pick up your supplies in August.  Stay Tuned……

PARCC Testing - grades 3-5
As March approaches, this is an important reminder that students in Grades 3-5 will take PARCC testing, as per the schedule below (please note the minor adjustment to previous schedule).  Because the state provides us a testing window, it is important for us to adhere to our schedule.  Therefore, we kindly ask you to consider these dates when scheduling vacations or appointments.  Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation.

March 13-22      Students in grades 4 and 5
April 3-12          Students in grade 3

Save the Date - Sports Night
