Our 1st through 3rd grade art students worked on a collaborative project inspired by quilter Corrine Sovey. Corrine is a quilter from Texas who is known for her vibrant colors and geometric shapes in her quilts. Every art student made a square for the "Community Quilt" using brightly colored triangles, rectangles, squares and 1/4 circles. Way to go, Mustangs! #BrookwoodsBest

Our Brookwood Community Garden is coming full circle to compliment our middle school lunch program. The beans & tomatoes were sweet and our tomatillos added to our nacho/baked potato menu yesterday. Look at the beautiful fresh food we provide! Thank you to all the families who gave up time to help weed, water, and pick at the community garden. Eating well rocks! #BrookwoodsBest

Brookwood Schools continues to demonstrate our commitment to the health and well-being of all students and families in our communities. We are fortunate to be involved with a program called Fuel Up to Play 60. Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school health & wellness program launched by National Dairy Council and the NFL, in collaboration with USDA empowering youth to make sustainable changes in the areas of nutrition and physical activity within their schools and communities. We are pleased to announce that the middle school received a grant of $1,100! Part of this money will be used for our Family Fun Night in January, where families have the opportunity to learn about how to keep their family physically active over the long winter months and how to fuel their bodies with various healthy foods. The other portion of this grant will be up to our students in our Physical Activity Leaders (PALS) and Wellness Group to decide how the money will be used to help revamp our recess time at the middle school! #BrookwoodsBest

For the past four years, Jennifer Mosansky, who is one of our 6th grade regular and special education teachers, has been our Community Zumba Instructor. Not only does she offer community classes for all ages but she has also offered various classes for our staff as well. Her love of Zumba began when she decided to offer a Zumba class for our summer school academy students. When she saw the excitement and fun the students were having —— she knew it was something that she wanted to pursue further. From there, Mosansky attended a training class in Milwaukee to become a licensed instructor! What Mosansky loves most about Zumba is that it really is for everybody! It doesn't matter if you feel like you are a "dancer" or not, or if you feel like you have no rhythm- Zumba is for YOU! As long as you are moving your body and having fun, you are doing it right! The music is so upbeat and engaging that you really can't help but move to it! She knows a lot of people feel intimidated when they see the class for the first time, but once they do it 2 or 3 times…they get over that feeling of intimidation very quickly and realize they are there to just have fun! Mosansky loves being a part of a plethora of events for our District but Zumba is one that is at the top of her list. She wants to allow everyone a chance to try it out — so she’s offering to all new participants to trial it by offering their first class FREE of charge with the mention of any of our social media posts! So you’ve got nothing to lose!! Come out to a Zumba class now!! The next class is September 5th at 6 pm at the middle school.
