May Updates

Hello Brookside Families

As we welcome the month of May we want to extend our sincere gratitude to all of our students, families and staff for their continued support and efforts as we pivoted to learning from home once again. 

This week in Ontario we recognize Education Week as well as Children's Mental Health Week.

Education week is an annual event celebrated by school boards and schools across the province. It is a time for students, teachers and parents to celebrate teaching excellence and student achievement. We have so much to be proud of in terms of the learning and student growth and progress we have seen despite the different models of learning we have had this year.

Children's Mental Health week has the theme of Resilience.  Each day we will highlight one of the 5R’s of Building Resilience

Monday - Routine

Tuesday - Replenish (self care) 

Wednesday - Relationships 

Thursday - Regulation

Friday - Reaching out 

On Wednesday we will participate in Green Shirt/Green Ribbon Day - Attached is a ribbon if you want to print off and colour or draw your own.  Click Here - Green Ribbon 


We are so proud of the resilience and determination that everyone is showing.  This is far from ideal and we know it is tough on everyone but we will be one day at a time!
