Greetings, fellow members of the Brooklin School community! I am delighted to be stepping into the 3rd and 4th-grade teacher role. I’m known around here as Ms. M! My journey in education has taken me on a fascinating path, from facilitating workshops on the seamless blend of humor and leadership effectiveness and the essential art of humor and stress relief to my roles as a dedicated special education, and life skills teacher. As we come together in this vibrant learning environment, my primary goal is to foster a classroom where the principles of Responsive Classroom shine. Understanding each of my precious students and their families is at the core of my mission, and I am wholeheartedly committed to ensuring that this journey is as smooth and enjoyable as possible for all involved. Let’s embark on this exciting adventure of growth, connection, and learning as we cultivate a nurturing space where every child can thrive.

Drop Off and Dismissals
Buses will drop off students at 7:30 each morning. Parents may drop off from 7:35 AM to 7:45 AM. If you arrive before the buses have finished dropping off, please wait till they leave. Then parents drive up and drop off your student in a single file in the front loop of the school. Do not pass any cars for the safety of students. Pick up in the afternoon will be done very similar. Buses will load, and parents will line up behind the buses. Do not park in front of any buses. We will dismiss the bus riders and buses will leave. Parent pick up will be called one student at a time in order of the parents in the drive-up line.
Student Dismissal Notes
Students are expected to have a note at the beginning of the day indicating where they will be going after school. No bus changes will be allowed daily due to preparations will need to be made in advance.
Students are tardy if they are not present at the beginning of the school, which is 7:45 AM. Tardiness is disruptive to other student’s learning and the teacher’s instruction.
Forms Sent Home Today
All the forms will be sent home the first day of school. Please read, fill out, make corrections to emergency forms, emergency contacts, phone numbers, address etc. and return to school ASAP.
Handbooks will be coming home later. They will be sent digitally. If you need a paper copy, please contact Louanne.
School lunches will be free of charge for all students under the age of 18 this school year. Free and reduced forms will be coming home to fill out; fill out and return even if you do not qualify. These numbers reflect on State monies for Brooklin School to receive.
Breakfast will be served when students arrive at school. Menus are on the Brooklin School website, Facebook Page and will be emailed home to parents.
The newsletter will be sent home via e-mail this school year. Please e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 359-2133 with any changes in your email.

School Board Meeting – September 12th
The School Board meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the school. Please come to these meetings and make your important contributions to the school.
Brooklin School is a Nut Sensitive School
What does this mean? As a school community, we will work together to ensure the safety of all the children in our school. We are asking the entire Brooklin community to assist in this effort to keep children with food allergies safe. The menu in the school cafeteria will feature nutritionally appropriate substitutes for peanut and tree nut products. All staff members will share in the responsibility of keeping children safe in our school.
How can I help? You can help by talking with your child about food allergies and supporting the efforts taking place at school to make all children aware of the nut sensitive policy at Brooklin. Some of our efforts will include the importance of hand washing throughout the school day and not sharing food with other students. You can also help by cutting down whenever possible the peanut and nut products your child brings to school for lunch or snack as is reasonable for your family.
What if I have further questions?
Please do not hesitate to call Jil Blake, Principal, or Louanne Munson, the Administrative Assistant, at 207-359-2133 with any questions you may have.
