School bus drivers now earn more; Henrico Schools also seeking school nutrition workers, skilled trade workers, teachers
Henrico Schools is also seeking teachers in some hard-to-staff areas: Spanish, French, special education, math, physics, technical education, and family and consumer science. If you have an expired Virginia teaching license, are a retired teacher in one of these subjects, or hold at least an undergraduate degree in one of these areas, come talk to us. We need you, too.
If you still have library books or computers that you have been meaning to turn in we need them back so please stop by and we will get you checked off.
We still have a few yearbooks that we will sell for $25 cash in the main office.
Beginning June 18, 2018, we will be open from 7-5: 30 pm Monday thru Thursday, which is our regular summer hours.
As Brookland looks ahead to next year we want to share a change in our schedule that will start in the Fall. As we work to provide more social-emotional support and planning for the future of our Cubs, we will be introducing a 30 minute advisory period during the first part of the day.
Studies show that good readers naturally spend more time in daily reading. Exposure to reading is important in developing a vocabulary for fluency and comprehension and since we have read an estimated 16,000 books this year lets keep going.
As a result, students in Henrico County Public Schools will complete a summer reading assignment. Ask your Cub about the instructions they received in class.
Brookland will be collecting computers on Monday (6/11/18) and Tuesday (6/12/18). Please make sure both your charger and computer are with you for those days.
Parents: Please look in every nook and cranny for your students’ library books to get them returned instead of being billed for lost items. Thanks so much for your help in keeping our library well-stocked for our students!
