Susquehanna Valley


Hello from our new principal, Mrs. Hatton!

Dear Brookside Families,
Please let me humbly and excitedly introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Bobbi Jo Hatton and I am the new principal at Brookside Elementary.  As some of you know, I came to Brookside last school year as a 3rd grade teacher.  Over the past year and a half, I have gotten to know many of our students, families, and community members.  It has been a privilege to become a member of this wonderful school community.  From the moment I stepped onto SV campus, it has felt like home.  
For those of you who have not met me, this year will mark my 30th year in education.  I was a teacher in Vestal for 25 years and an assistant principal for almost 3 years, before coming here to Brookside.  I have always been a fully engaged member in every school district that I have worked.  I am passionate about kids, books, dogs, learning and teaching!  I never get tired of helping a struggling student, sharing the successes big or small, or the thrill of seeing a student find a shining moment!  
I pledge to give you nothing less than my very best, each day.  I am committed to the kids and to our entire school community.  I am dedicated to creating nurturing, positive and engaging schools for all.  I consider each and everyone of you important to our school family.
I look forward to working with you in supporting our kids!

Kristen Gilbert invites ukelele players, beginner to advanced, to "Uke it Up" at a free presentation/workshop 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. There will be instruments to borrow at the workshop, but you may feel free to bring your own uke if you have one!

diagram of brookside bus loop New traffic patterns at Brookside
For many, opening day of the 2019-2020 school year September 5 was the first look they've had at the newly redesigned traffic patterns at Brookside Elementary School. Extensive site work over the summer has brought wholesale changes to the vehicle routes. These changes are designed to streamline the flow of cars and buses during the busy student drop off and pick up times. THIS DIAGRAM shows the new patterns in more detail. We anticipate some confusion as we all get used to the changes and we very much appreciate your patience and understanding.
Some things to keep in mind:
• All students (Pre-K through grade 5) not transported by bus will be dropped off at the newly redesigned drop off area. Please follow the arrows. The monitored entrance door at the drop off area opens at 8:30 a.m. Students dropped off prior to 8:30 a.m. may either wait at the door or walk around to the main entrance to get in.
• Parents/guardians picking up students for appointments or at the end of the school day should use the school bus/faculty entrance and park in the main parking lot and enter through the main entrance ONLY to sign out students.
students head into school New year off to a great start!
The 2019-20 school year is off and running at Brookside. Students, parents and visitors got their first look at some of the improvements that have been made as part of our continuing capital project - most noteably the site work outside the school designed to improve the flow of traffic around the building at drop off and pick up times. Inside, a lot of work took place over the summer to modernize and upgrade our classrooms. It's good to have students back for another year of learning! OPENING DAY PICTURES ARE HERE!
