Life Cubby!
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.


The third grade students spent a few hours on Tuesday visiting WETLAB (Western Environmental Testing Laboratory) in Sparks. They got to see water separated into its elements, and then watch as various elements of the periodic table were set afire (to see the different colors that they burn). It was an amazing science lesson and we thank Mrs. Sherven for inviting the classes to come see her lab! Thank you to our parent drivers!

Brookfield School
The 3rd grade classes are holding a food drive to help local families during this holiday season. Beginning today and going through Thursday, December 15th, we are asking for each student to bring in at least two non-perishable food items.

Each bear has a slip for you to fill out and leave in a collection box and a reminder slip with what to purchase. Please bring your gift (and bear reminder slip) back to the office by your morning drop-off on Friday, December 9th.
