Jim Siscel (dedicated volunteer) adds salmon eggs to the tank at Brookside in front of a first grade class who will act as Salmon Watchers and record their observations as the salmon grow. They will eventually be released into Brookside Creek on Earth Day in April.
Brookside received 230 Coho eggs which came from the Issaquah hatchery.
This will be the 25th year that Brookside students have released salmon into our creek.

Warm Winter Wishes in a Time of Change –
It is amazing to think that we are already at the cusp of Winter Break. This year is really flying by!
It certainly has already been a year of many changes for Brookside: a new principal, a new curriculum for English language arts and mathematics (The Common Core State Standards), and a new CCSS- aligned report card that you will have in your possession today. There is always a period of adjustment as we become acquainted with “the new” but this is often coupled with great hope, promise, and excitement.
The holiday season can be a time to reflect upon and appreciate both the new and the well-worn parts of our lives, a time to refocus and remember the people we care about the most. No matter which holidays your family celebrates, I hope that you are able to spend time together and find joy in each other over our break.
I look forward to hearing all the wonderful Winter Break stories when the kids return in January. Happy Holidays!
John Simard, Principal
