We want to send a special THANK YOU to PTA and the parent volunteers who made the Fall Festival such a fun time! They braved the wind and rain to host the amazing event! Thank you Mr. Sherven, Ms. Apollon, Mrs. Morrow, Mrs. Sekhon, Mr. and Mrs. Brady, Dr. Hovenic, Mrs. Kingston and all the others who came to help out, and to everyone who bid on the auction items.

Great job to all of our Chautauqua performers! Brookfield parents, including TLC parents, are welcome to join us at the All-School Chautauqua Assembly on Friday, November 4th at 8:30 am. A representative from each class will present his/her Chautauqua speech. This assembly will last approximately one hour.

If you have any great pictures of school events that you take throughout the school year, we would love to have them for our yearbook (it's never too early for us to start working on it)! If you took any shots during the first day of school, Friday assemblies, Jog or Trike-A-Thon, please send them to for Elementary and Middle Schools and for TLC. You can also drop off a labelled USB storage device (we will return it to you). We will definitely be looking for Fall Festival pics from all of our families. Thanks in advance for sharing!

As you plan your holiday travel schedule, please note that our holiday calendar differs from Washoe County. We are in session Monday through Wednesday of Thanksgiving Week (November 21st-23rd), with full days Monday and Tuesday, and a 12:00 pm dismissal on Wednesday, November 23rd.

Life Cubby!
We just wanted to let you know that we are all becoming quite comfortable with Life Cubby and you should all be seeing updates from your child's classrooms. There are been a few questions about sign in and sign out times that are showing up on Life Cubby. If a teacher is with another student or parent, their sign in and sign out time may differ slightly from the time that you actually drop off or pick up. This variation in time will NOT result in your account being billed, so please do not worry. We should have most of the kinks were out with this new system in the next week or so. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to see Mrs. Jacobson.
