NEW Opening Day Procedures

This year we are providing a time for families to find their new classroom, meet their teacher on TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2nd and begin to get settled before school starts!
This will replace our previous family visit time in the classrooms on the first day of school and allow for a smoother start for students and teachers on Wednesday September 3.

Mr. John Simard – Brookside’s New Principal

I join Brookside after leading Sunnyside Elementary School in San Francisco since 2010. Prior to my work there, I completed my graduate work at UC Berkeley, worked as an elementary instructional coach, and taught upper grade elementary students in San Jose. As Sunnyside’s principal, I worked closely with the staff and community to build upon existing structures at the school enhancing student engagement and achievement. Our work together culminated in Sunnyside receiving the California Distinguished School Award in June 2014. I look forward to working with Brookside’s staff and community to further develop the instructional program here for the betterment of our school and students.

Supply List for 2014-2015

The Brookside staff has prepared the following list of recommended supplemental school supplies. It helps the school year get off to a good start if children are able to bring their supplies the first day of school. Please mark the large items such as backpacks, ring binders and crayon boxes with your child’s name in permanent marker.
All Grades (except 4th) are requesting hand sanitizer to keep in the classroom for use during the year – pump bottles or refills would be very much appreciated!

Two very important people at Brookside are leaving us for retirement this year. After 40 years of teaching (each), Mrs. Travis and Mrs. Noble will be riding off into the sunset after the last day of school.
Congratulations! You will be missed.
