Character education is an area that all Brookside Place School staff members continue to expend much of their energies towards. Shifting from courage (mostly due to the many references to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) during the month of January to kindness for the month of February, literature selections continue to be at the forefront of what each teacher plans for to focus on a new monthly character trait.
PARCC Testing (Grades 3, 4 and 5) Notification regarding the upcoming PARCC testing for students in grades 3-5 will be forthcoming from Dr. Macaluso, Interim Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Curriculum. The first of two rounds of testing will take place during the weeks in March. Specific dates will be sent along following Dr. Macaluso’s initial letter.
