Back to School  Special Blast
From the Principal 

Back to School countdown! 1st day of school is on Monday, 8/8/16! The new school day is from 7:40-2:20 to allow 15 extra minutes for math instruction.

Knock, Walk, and Talk
Hello Briarlake Community!

I am engaging the community in an outreach event called Knock, Walk and Talk on Friday, August 5, 2016 to take place anytime between 10 and 12 noon. The Briarlake staff and parent leaders are looking forward to spending time walking the community knocking on doors to share information and listen to suggestions.  We will focus on the Silvastone and Blackwood area.  If you see us out, don't hesitate to join the walk!  See you soon.

Huge Thanks to  Our Volunteers and Teachers 
Open house was a huge success thanks to all the parent volunteers and Committee Chairs, Emily Mason & Allyson Martin! Thank you so much to everyone that volunteered to make this event such a success.  

If you were unable to attend open house, please visit the front office on the first day of school to complete registration information for your child(ren). 

Additionally, thanks so much to the PTA's Hospitality Chair, Liz Bradley, for coordinating the BES staff welcome back breakfast on Monday and the BES staff lunch today following Open House.  

Welcome Back, everyone!  We are excited for a great year!
