Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! Thank you for taking the time to visit our web-site. I am looking forward to an outstanding year at Brookhaven Elementary school. I would like to start out by saying how very proud I am that we are a 2012 California Distinguished School! This level of recognition does not happen without an amazing teaching staff, hard working students, and supportive families. Thank you for all of your hard work. We are proud of this achievement and Brookhaven is ready to continue to offer a rigorous academic education that meets the needs of all learners.
At Brookhaven Elementary Every day Counts! For every day that a student misses school they are missing valuable lessons that are hard to make up. Overtime, a few long weekends can turn into weeks of school that are missed, which result in students falling behind academically. In addition, each day that a child attends school, we receive an allotment of money from the state. This can easily translate into thousands of dollars that our school misses out on over the course of the year. Please help your children and our school by making medical appointments after school and starting your vacations after 2:15 on Fridays.
As you know you are a vital part of your child’s education. My hope is that we can work together to make this a fantastic year. Contact your child’s teacher should you have questions. Also please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions, comments, or concerns. I will be happy to discuss your child with you and hope that we can work together to make this a wonderful learning environment for everyone.
Our PTA continues to provide us with funding for activities that enrich our students. They are always in need of volunteers to assist them with fund raising and other activities. If you would like to volunteer please contact our PTA through the school office. The biggest way you can make a difference is by becoming a PTA member.
I am very excited about the start of a new school year and am confident that it will be a great year for all of us.
Principal, Brookhaven Elementary
