The Scholastic Book Fair is coming with something for everyone.
We will open during the school day from March 31 to April 4 from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM. All proceeds from sales of books helps fund the purchase of new library books. Parent volunteers needed. Call Mr. Rodgers @ 206.393.4145.
If you are not able to come to the Book Fair, you can order online and our school will still get credit for your purchase. Online ordering available Mar 26 - Apr 15 only!
We will be having a BKS Traffic Safety Forum April 1st at 7 p.m. Principal Kathryn Noble, Kevin Rodgers, and Mayor Mary Jane Goss will be attending. We are waiting to hear back from the Chief of Police of LFP, City Administrator and the City Engineer of LFP. It will be an opportunity for parents, school and city administrators, tax payers, and BKS staff to address concerns and hopefully open up dialogue to put the wheels of change in motion. We invite you to attend and ask that you please invite your BKS peers.
Congratulations to Brookside’s Global Reading Challenge team.
Parkwood Elementary was the winner out of the 11 teams represented at the district challenge. BKS did great though. The BKS Book Thieves team answered 19 out of 24 questions correctly. We are so proud of our readers!
Thank you to the teachers, parents, Mrs. Noble, Mrs. Miner, and coaches for all of your support!
We hope that the fourth graders will want to participate again next year and we will be even better!

Dear Brookside Parents,
I recently announced that I will retire at the end of June. This is my 36th year here in Washington as an educator. I taught for seventeen years before coming to Shoreline to be Principal of Sunset Elementary and then Brookside.
Looking ahead, let me explain the selection process for the next Brookside Principal. It began with a public posting on appropriate job listings. The posting closes in early March. In the meantime some district administrators will elicit feedback from faculty and parents to determine the desired qualities of your next principal.
In mid, March District administrators will review the applications of all candidates, and select a few to be interviewed. The typical interview team includes a district administrator, a principal, a few staff members and 1 or 2 parents.
Opportunities to provide feedback on the desired qualities will be advertised via email, and on our website. If you want to be considered for the interview team, please contact PTA at http://brooksidepta.org/contactus
I hold you, the Brookside community, in high regard for your integrity and commitment to your school. Serving you as Principal has been an honor.
Art For the Sky is a unique, team building activity for schools and festivals that helps dissolve the boundaries that often exist in our daily lives. These enchanting creations are a whole-body way of stimulating our imagination to see the elusive “big picture” and help us understand our interconnection with one another and all life. With our “skysight” awakened, we can access our highest creative potential and better solve the problems we face as individuals and as a society.
