We gave our Brookside Elementary School garden an upgrade last wk! New w**d cloth & lots of walk-on bark. Worked around the truck getting stuck on the slope, had to dump the bark in the yard instead and haul it by hand to the garden. So tired, we forgot to take a photo (until today) and there was no pile left to climb for a Rocky Balboa style victory dance! 🤣 Big thanks to my A-Team! Mr Kurt, Mrs Julie, my boys and the hubs, who shoveled and barrowed and raked until their arms almost fell off! Oak Park Unified School District
COOL CAMP is here!!

Daily art, yoga, dance, theatre, social and physical fitness activities, all included in one fee. But we are so much more than that…Our motto is that we teach “Coolness through Kindness and Confidence.” Cool is a way of being. The main focus of Cool Camp is kindness, because kindness is cool. We encourage and reward random acts of kindness. Our teaching styles are grounded in confidence boosting practices. Everyone is talented differently. By finding the best parts of each individual student and highlighting them, we help create confident, kind humans. And we do all this through the arts, social skills and physical activity.

PLUS-Every week we will have a performance and a Special Fun Friday.

Congratulations to Maria Cross! You are an incredibly deserving recipient of the OPUSD Partner in Education award! Brookside and OPUSD are very lucky to have you.

A very wise woman said it best (Tina Sze Wang):
"Very proud to be on hand to see my dear friend, Maria Cross, our PTA President, be recognized with the Partner in Education Award tonight. So much of what she has done for our kids has been behind the scenes. She exemplifies the definition of a servant leader, the one who leads by example and is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty....literally. From cleaning up the icky PTA closet to cleaning up the books, she does it all with a beautiful smile and a beautiful heart. I wish everyone could see the tremendous amount of work she pours into our school on a daily basis; she truly embodies the definition of an ideal parent volunteer who selflessly gives for the benefit of all and leads with integrity. I'm so glad you were recognized this evening for all you have done. We love you!"

The rain postponed our annual Jog-A-Thon but that just means more time to get donations for the awesome student prizes!

This pool/beach towel will be awesome this summer or at our annual 5th grade Keystone trip!
