Brookside Blast 4/1/22

Happy Friday and Welcome to April!


Several sightings of robins this week and a turn of the calendar certainly signal spring. Thank you for continuing to send boots (mud or winter) and layers, as students continue to go outside in all conditions!


Speaking of gear, are you missing something? Please check out this Google Doc with our current inventory of Lost and Found items, specially curated by Bonnie Flanagan.


From the Nurses' Station

The nurse's office is in need of gently used elastic waisted pants sizes 5-8 and shirts that are sizes 6-10. If you have these sizes that your children have outgrown, feel free to send them in. It's a great idea for children to have a change of clothing in their backpacks.


Thanks so much!

Disney's Freaky Friday:

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another’s struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.

April 7,8 at 7:30 pm, and April 9 at 1:30 & 7:30 pm. The 1:30 pm Matinee will be specially geared towards kids, with a presentation from the orchestra, and a meet and greet with the cast on stage after the show.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students/children and will be available at the door.
