    Hello Parents!

     

    Happy New Year!   We are looking for someone interested in running the Talent Show that is scheduled for January 27, 2017 from 6:30-8:30pm.  3rd-5th graders will have the opportunity to try out and Teachers/staff have also been asked to perform if they would like.

     

    We will need someone to coordinate the Talent Show, organize the line -up, etc. as well. We will have a separate person in charge of the audio system during the show.   

     

    We are also looking for 5 parents to volunteer for Concessions. 

     

    The PTO will assist you in any way that we can. We want this to be a successful event since we were not able to do the Talent Show last year. Your help is greatly appreciated.

     

    Looking forward to hearing from you with ideas!   As always, if you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me by email or call me at 737-226-2370.

     

    Best,

    Brookhollow Elementary welcomes our families back from the winter break, holidays and festivities. We hope that each of you spent some time with your families, friends, had plenty of laughter and took a moment to reflect on those things that are most important to you.

     

    As we get back to our business at hand, we remember that the development of the children at Brookhollow Elementary School is our first priority.     The second half of the school year is well underway with staff and students once again actively engaged in teaching and learning.  We are excited about the educational challenges that lay ahead of us and know you will continue to assist us in our efforts to make our school district the best it can possible be.

     

    Appreciative,

    Mrs. Harris

     

    Community News

    We will be following a cold weather dismissal plan when the temperature is below 30 degrees such as today.  Moreover, in the future our students will be dismissing from inside front area of the building, but this will not affect the way you normally pick up your child. If your child is a car rider, we will bring your child from inside the main building out to the pick-up line.  This process will, however, slow things down a little so please be prepared for longer wait times.  Please be patient during this process and be sure to have your pick-up sign clearly visible to help us keep the process moving – Mrs. Harris 

    Chick fil a cancelled -We were scheduled for a Chick-fil-A spirit night on April 27th. However, just got word from them that their restaurant will be closed from 4/11-5/18 so ours has to be cancelled. Rescheduling is in process we’ll let you know.

    Greetings Brookhollow Families,

     

     

    4th and 5th grade students will perform tomorrow evening @ 7pm  after PTO meeting.  Students should wear black and white ( per the note sent home) for the 1:45pm school performance as well – thank you Ms. Garza.

     

     

     

    "The PTO Meeting scheduled for 11/15 has been moved up to 6pm due to the 4th & 5th grade concert that night. We hope you will still come out and join us to hear about all the exciting things we have planned and then stay for the concert."

    Thanks,

    Nara

     

     

       This year the PTO is going to have the Penguin Patch Holiday Shop at Brookhollow. It will give the kids (and maybe yourself) an opportunity to buy holiday gifts for their family while the PTO raises money.

    The store will be open December 7-9th and December 12-14th from 10am-3:30pm.

    Each Teacher will get an opportunity to take their class to view the holiday store so the kids can see what there is to buy. Viewing dates will be December 5th and 6th.


    I have put a signup sheet on the door to the Teacher's lounge. If you can please sign up for a day and time no later than Wed (11/16), it would be appreciated.

    We will be providing letters and envelopes to go home as well as volunteer letters.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Nara

    p.s. the PTO Meeting on 11/15 has been moved up to 6pm due to the 4th & 5th grade concert. Please let your parents know of this change. We will advertise it too.

     

     

    "The PTO would like to congratulate Mrs. Silvus' 4th grade class for having the most parent volunteers for for a single class during the Fall Carnival. The grade with the most parent volunteers at the Carnival is 4th grade.

    Mrs. Silvus and the rest of the 4th grade teachers will get first pick of the Thanksgiving desserts next Friday.

    Congratulations and thank you to all our volunteers!"

    Greetings Brookhollow Families,

     

      As I walk around our school these past few weeks, and visit each classroom, I am so proud of our teachers and students. It is wonderful to see how much effort they are all putting forward. Each classroom is busy throughout the day creating memorable moments of learning with a clear focus on student success. We have had a seamless transition through the second nine weeks of school and look forward to the next few months of learning – Mrs. Harris.

     

    Attached are updates involving our music program events from Mrs. Nancy Garza

     

    Attendance – we celebrated perfect attendance and had drawings for students who were here every day including being tardy.   We want to continue to encourage are families as much as possible. Moreover,  students who arrive on time are able to have a focused start to their school day. While these may not seem as significant on the surface level, just a few minutes of lost learning can have a large impact over time. You probably already know this, but the state funds school districts based on our average daily attendance. Each percentage point on our average daily attendance is worth approximately 1.8 million dollars in PFISD. If our attendance drops from 97.2% to 96.2% the district could lose increased dollar amounts.  Please help your child and our school by making good attendance a priority.

    Good Morning All, 

    I wanted to remind you about photo retakes.  This will be happening this Thursday starting at 8:30.  Please remind your students if they want a retake photo they will need to return their original packet.

    If you are wanting to retake your photo you may do so. I know a lot of you were wearing your red Brookhollow school T-shirt.  FYI  spring photos will be in early February which are groups and individuals with different background choices. More information to follow as we get closer to that date.  If you have questions please let me know.

    Thank you
