Dear Parents,

It is Book Fair week! I always look forward to the Book Fair. Students are so excited to shop for affordable books, fun posters, and other educational products. I love it when students stop me in the hall to show me the book they got at the Book Fair. The Book Fair is open everyday this week from 8:30-3:30 and is located on the stage. It is a perfect time for you to come and do some early Christmas shopping. Thank you to our PTA for helping us bring the Book Fair to Brookside.

Reading to your children is so important as explained in this quote from the Washington Post article, “Why It’s Important to Read Aloud to Your Kids and How to Make It Count”. Amy Joyce wrote, “One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves, and reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them and be empathetic citizens of the world.”

Thank you! Have a great week!

Today we had our Veterans Day Assembly, which is one of our favorite assemblies of the year. It began with the school choir singing a few patriotic songs. Next, we watched a video about how our National Anthem came to be. Then, all the veterans attending the assembly came up on stage to introduce themselves and tell what part of the military they served in. Last, the 5th grade sang patriotic songs while we viewed a picture slideshow of veterans that are family members of students or teachers at our school. It was a heart-touching and emotional assembly. Thank you to all our veterans for being our heroes. #SpanishOaksExplorers #BeSomeonesHero
