Mustangs, help us welcome our new school psychologist Ellen Carpenter who will be working at both of our buildings and is working 40% of her time with Williams Bay. Here is more information about Carpenter: She is originally from Michigan's Upper Peninsula and majored in psychology at Grand Valley State University in Michigan and got her masters in Educational Psychology from UW-Madison. In between those degrees she's worked as an Americorps VISTA for the Madison Metropolitan School District as a family liaison, participated in fundraising and advocacy for affordable housing while cycling across the country with Bike and Build, and served as an education volunteer in the Peace Corps in Indonesia. Now Carpenter has geared up for the move to the Lake Geneva area along with her two Indonesian-born cats. As far as her interests go, she likes to stay active with running, ultimate frisbee, cycling, hiking, and yoga. She also likes to dabble in art, board games, potlucks, house plants, and cooking. Carpenter is very much looking forward to getting to know the teams at both Genoa City and Williams Bay, as she'll be splitting her time as a school psychologist intern between these two wonderful districts. She had spent a day visiting Brookwood and was very charmed and impressed with how welcoming and helpful everyone was. She can't wait to meet everyone and get started on this new adventure! Welcome, Ellen Carpenter, to the Brookwood Family!!
Please help us welcome to our Brookwood Family....Kelly Cassaday!! We are SO excited that Cassaday will be joining our 1st grade team!! Here is a little more about Kelly....if you have a chance at Open House...stop by and say, "Hi!" Cassaday is SO excited to be starting her 8th year of teaching at Brookwood Elementary School! She grew up in the west suburbs of IL with her loving parents and 4 siblings. They became a foster family when she was in middle school and had the privilege of adopting 4 children. She graduated from UW-Whitewater with a teaching degree from birth through 6th grade. She has a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful daughters. Cassaday also has two energetic black labs and a 1 year old hedgehog. She loves watching her daughters swim during practice, so she became a swim official for their swim club! Cassady really enjoys spending time outside and doing things like hiking, camping, swimming, and even sledding! Above all she loves to spend as much time as possible with her family. Cassaday cannot wait to start this school year, meet her students and families, and grow more as an educator with her first grade friends! Please help us welcome Kelly Cassaday to our Brookwood Family!!

Our District theme this year is "HELPING ALL CHILDREN GROW INTO GREATNESS." We are looking forward as a staff to fine-tuning our ability to support ALL of our kids as they develop academically, socially, and emotionally. And, there is sure to be a lot of FUN in the process! We plan to use this, our Mustang Minute, as the main vehicle to showcase all of the great things happening in our schools and as a way to deliver to you important information. You can expect to receive this newsletter weekly once the school year commences. Here's to making the MOST of the rest of your summer, Mustangs! We seriously can't WAIT to see you!
