2020/2021 HSA BOARD ELECTIONS LETTER & APPLICATION

Dear parents and prospective volunteers, last week you received a letter and an open position descriptions document from the HSA.

Historically, the HSA has always been an organization run by the wonderfully dedicated parents at our school! The HSA is our school’s main means of fundraising to provide additional programming for our students as well as deliver to them above and beyond what the Bloomfield Board of Education provides to every Bloomfield student.

In the past we have fundraised for our playground, purchased iPads/Chromebooks with charging stations; our auditorium’s sound system, an HD projector, class room fans and Smartboards. Our fundraising also sponsors and helps organize the high quality/low cost on site programming for our After School Enrichment Program, Basketball Program, author visits, Mindfulness Yoga our Fun Fair and then some!

None of this would be possible without the dedication of parents like you!

In the midst of these uncertain times, Brookdale Elementary School needs you.  It is important for us to come together and continue planning for the 2020/2021 school year to ensure a smooth transition from our current board to our new one come July 1st.

Attached please find a letter from us as well as a volunteer application form. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

The Election Committee

CALENDAR RAFFLE UPDATE

Unfortunately due to the closing oF our school building we have lost access to the raffle tickets that are housed at the school.  At this point in time, we will be pausing the calendar raffles until access can be gained to the building once again. We will keep everyone informed and hopefully be able to pick more winners in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions please reach out to either Mary Spink or Laura Evangelista. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope everyone is safe and well!

HSA 2020/2021 ELECTIONS LETTER & OPEN POSITIONS

Dear Brookdale HSA membership and parents, we hope that this post finds you all safe, sane and well at this time!

Attached below please find an important 2020/2021 Elections related letter from the HSA  as well as open Board position descriptions for the 2020/2021 school year.

We currently have six (6) out of seven (7) positions that will be vacated come June 30th.  With the majority of the board members’ terms expiring, it is critical that we have candidates and that our elections take place next month so the HSA can continue to function beyond the pandemic. There will be further details and instructions to follow from us as well as the Elections Committee.

Please review and in the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to the HSA Board or the Election Committee.

Sincerely,

The Brookdale HSA Board

We’re happy to share that last Sunday the Brookdale HSA, along with Berkeley, Demarest, Bloomfield Middle, Bloomfield High, Carteret, Fairview, Franklin, Oak View and Watsessing HSA’s, as well as the Bloomfield Home & School Council partnered together and donated special Easter Baskets created by Holstens to the Mountainside Hospital staff.

Collectively just wanted to thank their hardworking staff for all they have done and continue to do during these trying times.
