  • We Need Your Used Books!

    It's not too late to donate your gently used or new books for the upcoming recycled book fair. In honor of earth week, the Brookside PTA is collecting books (children's books through young teenage books). We greatly appreciate all the donations so far BUT WE STILL NEED MORE to make this event a success. So, take a peek in and around your house. We are sure you have some books that your children are no longer using. Drop the books off in the baskets in front of school. The Recycled Book Fair will be held April 14-16th (Tuesday-Thursday) at morning drop off and at every dismissal time. Please feel free to email the PTA Recycled Bookfair chairs at besbookfairchair@gmail.com if you have any questions or ideas.

Dear Brookside Families,
As the new Principal of Brookside Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the 2014-2015 school year!  I am very much looking forward to meeting all of the students, parents, and community supporters and getting to know you all as the school year progresses.  I feel very fortunate to be a member of the Brookside and Oak Park family and cannot wait to work with the staff and parents to continue the tradition of excellence at our school.  
I am very happy to be in a place where staff strives to recognize the potential in all learners and to translate that into performance. I have already witnessed the team approach to teaching and learning at Brookside that encourages the academic, social and emotional development of the whole child and I aim to continue this practice as a new member of this team.
Brookside is an outstanding place for learning. It is ranked as one of the top elementary schools in California. The year 2012 was the last time that the state published the Academic Performance Index (API) score for California public schools and Brookside is proud to have earned a score of 954. Out of more than 130 elementary schools in Ventura County, Brookside earned the third highest overall API in the entire county. The school has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education for meeting national standards for school excellence. We have also been named a California Distinguished School by the California State Department of Education and as a school with a well-articulated curriculum and an outstanding learning environment. As members of the California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll, we are recognized as a school with exceptional student achievement.
Parents and community members are encouraged to participate and become involved at our school. We actively ask for your support, ideas and suggestions. Our incredible PTA organizes and funds some of our most popular programs and activities. I encourage you to get acquainted and get involved. You will find the effort enjoyable and rewarding.
We hope you will find that Brookside Elementary School is truly a place where learning is joyful and children delight in coming to school. Come learn with us!
Sara Ahl, Principal
