Extra Materials for PA

Hello Brookdale Families!  As the school year is about to begin, I wanted to let you all know that there are two extra things that I will need the kids to bring when they come to PA.  I'd like each child to bring a one inch three ring binder and one pack of loose leaf paper (lined and three hole punched) that will stay in our classroom.  We will keep copies of short stories, poems, essays, research materials, graphic organizers, notes, as well as insights about the texts and topics we will investigate in the binders.  I will periodically send these home for parents to review, but most of the time these will be kept in the PA room so kids can stay organized and have everything they need for learning in one spot.  Please do your best to have these binders ready to go by the Tuesday after Labor Day.  I am so excited to begin the school year and hope to meet you all on the 21st at the Meet and Greet. The PA classroom is now in the computer lab…I hope the transformation will be completed by the 21st!
