CHESS ENRICHMENT BEGINS
Session III starts on Mar 22nd. Register your student today! Classes run every Thursday for 8 weeks, Mar 22 - May 10, from 4:00 - 5:15 pm at the Brinker Library. The cost is $180 per student and all skill and grade levels are welcome.
KINDERGARTEN ROUND UP
Enrollment for 2018-19 Kindergarten students will take place on March 23 from 9-11 am & 1-3 pm. Getting an accurate number of students is very important in helping us plan for the number of classes and teachers we will need. A child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2018 in order to attend Kindergarten. Each child will need immunization records signed by a doctor, certified birth certificate, child’s social security card, if available, proof of residency (current gas or electric bill or lease agreement) and parent’s driver’s license in order to register. If you know children in your neighborhood who will be in kindergarten next year, please let them know about round-up!
BRINKER COLOR FUN RUN
March 23, 2018 from 5:00 - 6:00 pm
The Brinker Color Fun Run is an untimed run where Brinker students are dusted in different colors at stations around the lap course. The event is all about students running, walking or even skipping while family members and Brinker community cheer them on!
Please note students will not be collecting donations for laps, but there is an option to sponsor your student's run through the Color Run Sponsor Collection field below the Color Run Registration Fee if you choose to do so - this donation will go toward supporting Brinker PTA's Programs enriching and enhancing students' educational experience and their healthy lifestyles.
We hope you and your family can join us for this fun family event!
