WALK TO SCHOOL DAY - WEDNESDAY, MAY 6TH - See below for details . . . .

On Wednesday, May 6 we will hold our Spring Walk to School Day. This will be a celebration of the return to warm weather and the opportunity to enjoy our great neighborhoods with the company of our friends. We will be asking children to record how they arrived at school on Tuesday May 5, and Wednesday May 6 on a large poster board in front of the school. 

Though this is a one day event we hope to encourage walking to school everyday possible. Of course walking is not practical or possible for every family, but even if you drive your child to school, please think about parking several blocks away to reduce traffic congestion and provide a short breath of fresh air
If there are any parents or 5th grade students who would like to arrive at approximately 7:45 am to help children with their stickers that would be appreciated, please contact Mustafa Varoglu at

For more info on the Brackett Safe Routes to Schools program please contact Mustafa Varoglu via or .

Announcement: Dr. Nora Shine's "The Talk" - Tuesday, May 12th, 6-8 pm, at Brackett - - LEARN MORE!

DR. NORA SHINE'S," THE TALK": Talking to Adults, Listening to Kids/ Realistic Strategies for Promoting the Sexual Safety of Young Children
Tuesday, May 12th 6-8 p.m. at the Brackett School
proudly sponsored by the Brackett PTO

Dr. Nora Shine, a Child Psychologist and parent of two young children, has created a two hour workshop in which she shares realistic strategies that parents (and teachers/counselors) can use to promote the safety of their young children, especially in regards to child sexual exploitation. Dr Shine draws upon her knowledge as a Child Psychologist, her experience as a parent, and her training as a facilitator in sexual abuse prevention from two nationally renowned organizations (D2L and StopItNow), to teach what really works to protect children from sexual abuse. Designed to reduce anxiety surrounding this topic, Dr. Shine uses an intentionally warm and light manner. With the goal of inspiring a sense of informed confidence, and a commitment to behaving responsibly, you will learn:

- Facts about child sexual abuse that inform effective prevention strategies
- A framework for integrating abuse prevention into good parenting practices
- Facts about which adult behaviors should raise concern ( and how to avoid unnecessary panic!)
- Language that adults can use to calmly and confidently address observations that raise concern
- Ways to increase communication with children, so they feel supported and protected by adults
- Begin to overcome our own embarrassment and hesitation about all things sexual, so that we are able to 
protect children from those who would exploit our discomfort
