Among the highlights were:

  • The huge effort that Stanley Williams and his family put into the Innisbrook fundraiser. Read the minutes to see just how much they raised for the school.
  • Approval for us to fund the replacement of 5 broken fans inside the school.
  • The release of BrookdaleBuzz.com, a one-stop shop for all things Brookdale online

If you have any thoughts or questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Board. Agenda for the November meeting will be posted shortly.

Minutes from September and a (Brief) October Preview

We had our usual fantastic turnout for the first HSA meeting of the year. We recapped the summer and laid out some of our key goals for this year: improving our processes, making better use of technology, beating last year’s fundraising total, and getting as many of you involved as possible.

Our next meeting is just around the corner this coming Wednesday, October 8th, at 7pm. We’ll meet in the library to, among other things:

  • Give final approval to the budget
  • Discuss the replacement of several fans within the school
  • Review the successes of our first few events of the school year
  • Get a series of important updates from the Principal

We hope to see you there!

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:

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!

Minutes and More from the May Meeting

The minutes from the May meeting are now available via the PDF link below. For those who missed the discussion, a few highlights of note:

  • Principal Fleres reviewed the potential sections for next school year but indicated nothing is likely to be fully finalized until later in the summer.
  • The group discussed options for the annual HSA gift, which will be voted on at the June meeting. The focus is on a fleet of iPads to be used in the classroom and new equipment for the lone suboptimal SMART Board in the building.
  • An intro to our two candidates for HSA Co-President. They will present and the membership will vote at the June meeting as well.

Just two days until the next HSA meeting on Wednesday night, and here are the minutes from the March meeting:

BROOKDALE HSA Minutes – Mar 12, 2014 (PDF)

If you don’t get a chance to read them through, here are a few tidbits:

  • Mrs. Jaffe won Brookdale’s 2013-14 Teacher of the Year Award. Congratulations! In other teacher news Mrs. Luca is officially out on maternity leave with Mrs. Orrei taking her place for the rest of the school year.
  • The talent show, which was scheduled for April 4th is now set for this coming Friday, April 11th, at 7pm. Hope to see you there.
  • We came upon some old, handwritten minutes from the Brookdale HSA that date back to 1937. Pretty amazing to see that we are part of something that has been around a LONG time.

Hope to see everyone on Wednesday night. We’ll get the agenda posted for the next meeting later today.
