School Site Council PTA meeting The Greenbrook School School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents and community members entrusted with the task of academic goal setting. This school based management group gives the entire school community a voice in making important decisions which directly affect the quality of education in our school. The School Site Council acts as a liaison between parents, teachers, administrators and Board of Education members. It consists of six parents, five teachers and two school administrators. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month. Some projects which have been developed by the Council are Author's Night, K-2 Bedtime Story Hour, and Math, Science, and Technology Night.

January 13, 2009 Nancy Blanes welcomed everyone to the meeting. December’s meeting had been cancelled due to snow.

Dr. Speesler gave the South Brunswick Board of Education report.
The annual budget cycle will be starting soon. It’s going to be more challenging this year because the board has not received a preliminary estimate of the amount of state aid the district will be receiving. The report is not expected until the beginning of March. Without this number, funding of existing programs will be much more challenging but will not be cut unless absolutely necessary.

Mrs. Holliday mentioned that School Board recognition had been held at the School Board meeting on Monday, January 12th. All of the South Brunswick schools participated in recognizing the work that our School Board does for us.

Mrs. Holliday gave the Principal’s Report.
The 4th and 5th grade Winter Concert was held at the school on Thursday, January 8th.
Monday, January 19th is Martin Luther King Day – there will be no school.
Tuesday, January 20th is Inauguration Day. All of the classes are integrating this event into the school day to some degree. The older children will be watching more of the day’s events than the younger classes.
Last week was the school run-off for the National Geography Bee. Greenbrook had three finalists.
The next workshop in the South Brunswick Parent Academy will be held on Thursday January 26th at Crossroads North. The topic is how to help your child deal with bullying and harassment. Mrs. Holliday encouraged all parents to attend.

There has been an outbreak of head lice in the school. A notice was sent home to all parents on Monday, January 12th. The school has a nit-free policy; a student must have his/her head checked by the nurse and be deemed free of eggs before being allowed back in the school.

Mrs. Gordon reported that the after-school Operation Bookworm has begun with 11 high-school volunteers and 22 kindergarten thru 2nd-grade students participating. The program will run through February.

Mrs. Waxman is starting her boys’ book club on Wednesday, January 14th. There are 9 boys signed up so far.
Mrs. Waxman also reported that the Science and Technology Night is being rescheduled to March 12th. The fifth grade class will be having a bake sale the same night, and the Multiple Intelligences workshop may be linked in as well.

The school newsletter is still in progress; the committee has been working hard to get the first issue out.
