The East Brook Blast

September 5, 2018

Pull the plug on Fortnite, folks! We are BACK at East Brook! Nothing excites me more than the beginning of a new school year.

With the addition of our brand new Gaga Pit along with the renovated Media Center, I am enthused to see the children’s reactions tomorrow!

Saturday, September 8th, the East Brook PTO is hosting a Fun Family Picnic from 11am – 1:30pm. Bring your own food and drinks. Games will be provided – including the NEW Gaga Ball arena. Mr. Ostrow will be on hand to provide live music. Raffles and prizes – PRAA Free Registration & Ladies Night Out Tickets!


Our new staff has quickly adjusted to East Brook and I look forward to introducing you to them at Back To School Night next Thursday, September 13th.  Please remember that all parents will visit their child’s classroom first.  Next, we will meet in the multi-purpose room for the Principal’s presentation.  Then you will an opportunity to meet additional teachers (in the event you have more than one child).  There is a notice posted below.
