Brimhall Elementary School news
Great Brimhall Get-Together
The Great Brimhall Get-Together (formerly the International Festival) on Friday, April 25, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., will be a fitting celebration of a lively and productive 2013-14 year and a homecoming for Brimhall alumni. Thank you to Diane Kaphing for her tireless leadership; Tangled Roots for the musical entertainment; the dozens of parent, staff and student volunteers; and to the cake, raffle and silent auction donors.
Sixth-graders performed “Cinderella, Cinderella!” as two separate casts for school and community audiences the last week of April. The performances featured much laughter as well as community-building themes. Thank you to the directors, students, Roseville Foundation grant and parent carpools that made this new initiative possible. Many future Roseville Area Middle School students are excited about future theater projects.
Scholastic Book Fair
The Scholastic Book Fair in April was a great chance for students to exercise both personal finance skills and a great selection of literature. Thank you to media specialist Anna Zbacnik and the kind volunteers who help students count piggybank coins as well as scan credit cards. PTA meets May 5 The Brimhall PTA business meeting of 2013-14 will be held Monday, May 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s music room. Members will vote on a 2014-15 budget, elect all four officer positions and plan ahead for the next school year, which will see many transitions for key volunteers. Thank you to Scott Roste, PTA president, for his leadership the past two years, during which fundraising, programming, and parent and staff teamwork have remained strong for the school of more than 700 K-6 students. Volunteer breakfast The annual Volunteer Recognition Breakfast will be held Thursday, May 29, in the school’s multipurpose room at 8 a.m. All 2013-14 volunteers are invited to attend and be honored for their hard work. “Bengal pride” means there are always plenty of volunteers to recognize.
