Principal's Message:
Upcoming event for Parents--We will be holding a Parent/Principal Night on Wednesday, February 20th.  It will take place from 6:00-7:30 at Homer Brink.  This will be a great time to come learn more about our school, your child's learning, and how you can support your child from home.  A flier will be sent home soon.
 
A huge thank you to the high school students that come down to Homer Brink to volunteer with our students. Our kids really enjoy the time they spend working together.  Our Mural Club, Math Challenge Club, and a STEAM Club continue to be successul.  Students have enjoyed participating in these new opportunities!  
 
Character Education:
Our Morning Program and Think Tank are important parts of Homer Brink's Character Education program.  These are times when we get together as a school community to discuss ways we can be good Homer Brinkers and Maine-Endwell citizens.  Please feel free to stop by anytime to see these programs, it's a fun time for kids and adults. Contact the main office for times/dates.  We also have a recognition wall we call SPARTAN NATION.  If your child comes home with a certificate it means thay are being recognized for being a good leader in the building!

Are you registering a new student? We now have a central registration area.  It is located at our District Office at 712 Farm-to -Market Road at our High School campus.

Daily Homework-
READING & MATH FACTS.....................Reading and practicing your math facts daily are very important to the academic development and readiness at school. Please make sure your child reads at least 20-30 minutes each night, and practices their grade level math facts for about 10-15 minutes.  This is an important nightly routine for all of our students. 
 
Recess Information:
The weather is beginning to warm up a bit: (Please remember to send your children dressed accordingly for the weather as students will go outside most days for recess.  We will usually go outside if the "Feels like" temperature is 20 degress or more.  If a child doesn't have a proper jacket or is wearing shorts they may not be able to go outside for recess.  Call me with any questions.
