BROOKWOOD FOR THE WINNNNNN!!! Last night, the Brookwood girls basketball team beat a conference powerhouse, Yorkville, 21 to 20 in the first round of the playoffs. Our girls will now be advancing to the final four of the playoffs. The Brookwood defense held Yorkville to 4 points in the 1st half! The scoring was spread out amongst the girls in a tremendous team effort. Taylor Palazzo made a 3 pointer to get the team started, and Tessa Coari beat the buzzer at the end of the first half with a basket. Lilly Villareal and Natalie Porras led the charge with aggressive defense and offense. Lilly Butinas sealed the victory by making a free throw with seconds remaining in the game. Congrats to ALL our girls on on huge playoff victory! We hope to see you at Yorkville on 12/3 for our next game to determine who heads to the championship game on 12/5! #BrookwoodsBest
Ms. Amelse's science class has been exploring light and sound. Students have investigated light through shadows, flashlights and reflections. They have also explored different types of sounds through hands on experiments. Students work through all experiments in partner pairs or small groups to learn how to effectively communicate their science findings with peers.

The past few weeks, 7th grade scientists have been learning about the properties of water. We learned water particles are attracted to one another and resist being separated. We dropped water on pennies, trying to determine how many drops would stack up on a penny. How many drops of water to you think can stay on a penny? The students are also learning about chemical formulas, and that each substance can be made of different types of atoms in different arrangements. We used marshmallows and toothpicks to build molecules of water, carbon dioxide, fructose (sugar), and caffeine - all ingredients found in soda. We were able to separate the water from the soda, using a process called distillation. The scientific principles of evaporation and condensation were used to explain how the water was removed from the soda. 7th grade science is awesome! #BrookwoodsBest
November is Native American Heritage Month and the students in Mrs. Powers and Mrs. Kanthack’s classes are learning all about Wisconsin and how we are connected to many Native American tribes. This week the students had Navite American stories told around a campfire, looked at artifacts from different tribes from around WI, and identified six different types of Native American’s that have lived in Wisconsin for thousands of years. Later in the unit, students will learn how to speak and write the Ojibwa language and hear the story, “We are Grateful” by Traci Sorell and Frane Lessac which is a cultural Native American book teaching us how to express gratitude. #BrookwoodsBest
