Party Guidelines for This Year

The Brookdale staff and nurse have created new guidelines for class parties this year. Class parents will primarily work to ensure these are followed within each class, but we wanted to share them with everyone else as well. The intent is simply to make sure we minimize the risk of any allergic reactions.

If you have any questions at all please reach out to the HSA or the school nurse.

Minutes from the June Meeting

It seems like a good way to start out the new school year is by remembering how last year ended. To that end, here are the minutes from the meeting this past June:

BROOKDALE HSA Minutes – June 11, 2014 (pdf)

A few highlights:

  • We elected a new co-president. Congratulations to Rafael Jimenez!
  • After a great year of fundraising we approved a multi-item annual gift to the school that included: a set of 25 new iPads, a charging cart for all of the iPads, new parts for a problematic SMART Board. It was a great cap to all the effort everyone put in all year.
  • We also voted to fund the purchase of a new refrigerator for the kitchen and a dance program for the 4th grade.

All the details are in the document above, and we’ll be posting some information for the upcoming school year shortly. We hope everyone has had a great summer!
