The East Brook Blast - September 19, 2018

The East Brook Blast


Congratulations East Brook! Today we raised $1,368 during our Day of Gold!  All proceeds go to support pediatric cancer through Josephine Gardens.  Thank you to Lauren Capilli for organizing this great fundraiser!

Thank you for your participation at East Brook’s Back to School Night last Thursday night.  I enjoyed seeing familiar faces along with new ones!  I forgot to mention the positive impact Twitter has made the past few years.  With 409 followers, this social media platform gives followers an “inside look” at what happens during a school day.  The school’s Twitter handle is @eastbrookowls and many of our teachers have joined and tweet regularly.

Fun Fact: The boys featured in the photo this week has been an annual tradition since 2015. Evan always reminds me to take the photo!
