Students in Ms. Mohr's 7th grade social studies class have been learning about the Revolutionary War. Ms. Mohr paired up with Mr. Guth to create an active game in the gym where spies ran across the gym -- trying not to get caught -- so they could deliver a coded message regarding the war. Can you decode the messages?

Here is this week's Mustang Morning Show: https://youtu.be/RuYeHTmhsH8?si=19pT0oIXX4QqWU3e
Throughout the month of January, 3rd grade guidance classes spent the month learning about acceptance. The first two weeks they focused on differences/similarities, prejudice, stereotypes, discrimination, fair/unfair and inclusion and the second two weeks students were immersed in disability awareness activities with a focus on acceptance and inclusion. They learned about braille, how to write their names in braille and were introduced to wheelchair basketball; They learned about physical, visual, speech and auditory impairments autism, adhd/depression/anxiety as well as cognitive and learning differences. To conclude the disability awareness portion, students really enjoyed having a guest speaker who came in and taught them about service dogs, how service dogs help support people who have medical issues or different types of disabilities, what they do to help, their training and what to do (or not do) if you see a service dog.
Attention 8th grade families: Another reminder about a helpful event for incoming 9th graders to Badger High School.
The District is truly thankful for support of our families and community. Earlier this week, a group of volunteers on the community Readiness Team joined to work as a part of the Design Team on compiling the beginning looks to our Portrait of a Mustang. The work is going to be brought back to the students and staff for feedback and edits to ensure all parties have a say in this work to ensure all Mustangs are career, community,…life ready.
Does your 3rd grade student enjoy helping others? Making a difference? Having fun? If so, Kindness Squad is the perfect opportunity for them! We will be doing things within the elementary building and within the community. We are excited to get started on Wednesday, February 7th! Meeting starts after school until 4:15 at BES!
Hello Brookwood Elementary Families, It’s time to celebrate Kindness Week! We will kick off Kindness week on Friday, February 16th with an all school kindness pep assembly. Kindness week will run through February 23rd. The purpose of our annual kindness week is to celebrate the importance of kindness, understanding, empathy and acceptance. We are excited to share two new events added to our annual kindness week - National Random Act Of Kindness Day Participation and Classroom Service Projects! National Random Acts Of Kindness Day is on Saturday, February 17th. At the end of the Kindness kick off assembly, students will be given a pink slip of paper to bring home. They will be encouraged to do a “random act of kindness” for someone. This can be something the student does on their own, with a parent or it can be something done as a family. Fill out the pink slip and send it back to school on Monday (a picture of the student/family doing a RAK emailed to Mrs. Fitzsimmons is a bonus!). RAK pictures will be put into a slide show for students to see and RAK (Random Acts Of Kindness) slips will be read throughout the week during morning announcements Classroom Service Projects In the past, during kindness week, we have always done some sort of donation drive. Though our donation drives have always been very successful (thank you!) This year, we want students to be more involved. Grade levels/classrooms will be coming up with a community service project or a way to provide a random act of kindness that their students can actively participate in. How we need your help to make this the best experience for our students: your child’s teacher may be reaching out for help with 1. supplies to be able to complete their random act of kindness/community service project and/or 2. Volunteers to help students in the classroom prepare/carry out their random act of kindness/community service during Kindness Week. Along with working on their community service project/random act of kindness during this week, classrooms will be reading stories related to kindness and doing academic activities around the theme of kindness. See attached flier for Kindness Week themed days. ~Mrs. Fitzsimmons and Mrs. Nast *BMS will be doing their Kindness week in March, stay tuned for more information from BMS*

Thank you to the Badger academic counselors and athletic representative for coming to Brookwood to visit with our 8th graders!!! So excited for these next steps for our 8th graders….but don’t forget…you’re #ForeverAMustang
Today, our 8th graders had the opportunity to tour Badger High School in preparation for next year! They learned about everything Badger offers, both academically and extracurricularly, and there is something for everyone! Students left feeling excited for their next step & prepared with some ideas on the classes they plan to take. They’re looking forward to tomorrow when the Badger academic counselors will visit Brookwood to prepare our students for the registration process. A representative from athletics will also be here to talk about all of the opportunities available to students at Badger. Please ask your child to share how their experience went!

The 7th and 8th grade band had the opportunity to travel to Badger yesterday! They worked on prepared music with other middle school students from LGMS and played with the Badger Wind Ensemble students. Together, they worked on musical concepts such as articulation, dynamics, and attention to detail. It was also wonderful to see some Brookwood alumni in the high school band! What a great morning of music!
