What is the class size mandate?

The maximum individual K-3 class sizes will drop from 24 students to: K: 18, 1st: 16, and 2nd: 17 students. For a year round school like ours, imagine pulling 2 students from the K class as they graduate to 1st and then adding one back when they rise to 2nd. Children need some stability and consistency. Pulling one or two kids from a track and switching them year to year and possibly from track to track will have broad reaching implications for families with older siblings.

Events

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEKS

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEKS - Tracks 1, 2, & 4: May 7-11, or Track 3 is May 21-25.
Join us to celebrate all our teachers. As in year’s past each class will have a teacher pairing, so please honor both teachers. Sign up to help with school wide TA requests and get the details.

Spring Carnival - Friday, June 1st - Come One, Come All!

Brassfield’s first Spring Carnival will be held on Friday, June 1st in the Lower Field @ 5-8 PM. Bring the family out to enjoy inflatables, games, food, prizes, face painting, a cake walk, a dunk booth and more.

Graduation Committee Request

The 5th Grade Graduation Committee is looking for a wireless photo printer to borrow for the days of the event (June 7for Track 1 and June 29 for Tracks 2,3,and 4). We’d like to do a photo booth for the kids and then be able to print out the photos for them to take home. (We will provide the photo paper.) If you have a printer that you are willing to lend us for the event, please email Melinda Hemphill. Thank you!!

School Wide Volunteer Opportunities

We have many volunteer opportunities throughout the school year, and we welcome all help even if it's 1 hour, 1 day, once a month or once a year! Every little bit helps further our goal to improve the kids experiences at school and their educational opportunities. Next week, we'll be sending out a link and information regarding our PTA positions that are still open. Please click the heading to access volunteer opportunities available throughout the coming year, and we appreciate your service!
