Dear BES Families,
Welcome to a new school year! I'd like to introduce myself to you as your 2017-2018 BES Home and School President. I am new to the school as a parent, with my oldest child just starting grade primary this year. However, I have worked at Brookfield Elementary as the school Speech-Language Pathologist for approximately 8 years and have gotten to know the BES community in that respect.  I look forward to having these two new roles this school year!We had our first home and school meeting in September, at which time a new executive was elected! The new members of the executive are:-Denise Boulton – President,-Angela Reid – Vice President,-Natalie Brenton – Treasurer,-Erin Jamieson – Secretary,-Kari Furmidge/Heather Peterson – Fundraising Co-Chairs,-Hilary Paquet/Gail MacFarlane – Playground committee We would love to see more parents attend our home and school meetings!  For some (like me!), you are first time parents wondering ‘how it all works’.  Others of you may have known there was a home and school group but weren’t sure what the goals of the group were or even how you could be involved. Our goal as a home and school group is to give our children the best education possible.  Our primary objective is to raise funds to be able to provide our students with additional resources, technology, equipment, etc. that would not otherwise be possible without all of your support. The Home and School Committee always welcomes new members and new ideas, so please feel free and welcome to attend! We also have a group on Facebook – BES Home and School. There are often great discussions and updates on that site as well.The schedule of our meetings is in your child’s agenda!Thanks for your continued support! We look forward to seeing or hearing from you!
