November 2019 Newsletter


Diwali Flash Mob

On November 6th, festive colors, music, and dance exploded into one spectacular Diwali flash mob at Brookvale Elementary. Many people participated in making this event a huge, fun-filled morning for our school. A special thank you goes to the students who participated in the dance and the parents and grandparents who choreographed, taught the dance, and setup the beautiful decorations. A special shout-out to our teacher, Mrs. Bi-On, for her enthusiastic participation and for enabling and encouraging her entire class to participate!

Our PTA supports cultural experiences as part of our children’s education. We highly encourage all parents to come forward to bring more cultural events from different parts of the world to our school. If you are interested in exploring this further, please contact

Science Sunday is Back 

Brookvale PTA is very excited to continue our relationship with the Stanford University Chemistry Outreach Program. On Sunday, November 17th, from 3:30-5:30pm, bring your family and friends to the Los Cerritos Community Center for an afternoon of fun-filled, hands-on science activities, including: building a spaghetti tower, how magnets work, acids and bases, science behind chocolate, make your own slime, and more!


Coffee with the Principal
