SNACK BREAK: Just a reminder that all students have a nutrition break every morning. Please be sure to send your child with a healthy, nut-free snack every day. Don't forget about Pizza Days and Fridays, when you may not typically pack a lunch.

Some parents have inquired about the Mount Rose Youth Lessons that begin in January 2018 for children of ages 4-12. Mount Rose will be offering Friday afternoon youth lessons again this year, but they are limiting this day's availability to just 2 or 3 schools (including Brookfield). While this makes the parental process much easier and the lessons more enjoyable, the positions are limited to the first 60 students who sign up. In approximately two weeks, Mount Rose will provide us with a link to register for this class. We will pass this along as soon as we can and we urge all families to register upon receipt of the link. You must register online with this link through Mount Rose; Brookfield cannot take registrations.

As the cold weather approaches, students will be wearing more layers and accessories. Please label your child's sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, coats, hats, gloves, and scarves. We prefer first and last name, but whatever identification you can fit on items will help you retain your clothing. We are now going through last year's Lost & Found and will be donating all unlabeled items to charity on Friday, October 6th. If you feel as though you may have items in this collection, please take a moment to go through it.

Elementary CAMPUS/MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS


By now, you should have received your email with the images of last week's Fall Picture Day. If you have not, you can contact the photographer at (775) 682-4309 or email him at sam.baugh@tssphotography.com. Sign up in the office for make-ups if necessary.

BASKETBALL: If your 4th-8th grade child is interested in playing basketball this season and you have any questions, there will be a mandatory basketball meeting on Tuesday, October 3rd in the Middle School Great Room at 5:00 pm. All information will be given out on this date; it is very important that you attend. There will be a fee for players, exact amount to be announced soon.

EARLY RELEASE: The Elementary and Middle School campuses have Early Release on Friday, October 6th for teacher training. Please pick up students at 12:00 pm.

ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER CARE: After-care is available from school dismissal until 6:00pm. After-care is at an additional cost and is charged per family, not per student. If you plan to use after-care on a regular basis, you can save money by contacting the school and have the monthly after care bundle added to your bill. If your student is picked up prior to the end of their Homework Club, there is no charge for after-care. All students remaining after their Homework Club ends will be signed into After-School Care and charged starting from the dismissal of school.

FRIDAYS AFTER-SCHOOL CARE: All students remaining on campus after 1:15 pm on Fridays will be signed into After-School Care, even if a parent or caregiver is present. To avoid any charges, please be off campus by 1:15 pm. Students who participate in a specific club will not be charged for after-school care while in the club. Thank you for your cooperation so we can staff our After-School personnel correctly.

PIZZA THURSDAYS: Pizza Thursdays will be offered every Thursday when school is in attendance. You may purchase one or two slices of pizza with a side. Please return the order form by 3:30 pm on the Wednesday before the Pizza Day, as we place the order that evening. Payments can be done via FACTS or by check. We still have several students who did not sign up for the additional Thursday on November 30th. We will be ordering our average number of pizzas that day, so if your child does not have lunch, we will supply him/her with his/her usual order and bill your account. If you have any issues with this, and would rather not toss your dough away for 11/30/17, please let us know!

LUNCHTIME WARM-UPS: While we are happy to warm up student lunches at lunchtime, we ask all parents to label your containers. This will not only enable lost containers to make their way back home to you, but will significantly expedite your child receiving his/her lunch!

Please clip out all non-expired Box Tops and place in a Ziploc bag with your child's teacher's name on it. You can turn them in to the office or to your teacher. We will be holding the collection beginning now and will collect through the end of 2017. The classroom with the most Box Tops collected will win fabulous prizes!
