At the elementary school, "Red Ribbon Week" will look a little different as we spend the week focusing on the building blocks of a healthy, drug free lifestyle - developing kindness/empathy, teaching tolerance, encouraging acceptance and inclusion and promoting positive character.

October 21st – Be your own super hero – you don’t need a cape to be a hero, you just need to be kind. (Super hero day)

October 22nd – Mix it up at lunch day – As a way to teach tolerance, Brookwood Elementary School will be participating in the international Mix It Up at lunch Campaign. Students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly—and harshly—drawn. So we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. Students will randomly draw a colored card from a box and will sit at the matching table. Meeting new students and possibly sparking new friendships. (Wear mix matched clothes). https://www.tolerance.org/mix-it-up

October 23 – Unity Day - Together against bullying. UNITED for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. (Wear Orange). https://www.pacer.org/bullying/nbpm/unity-day.asp

October 24th – Be Brookwood! All for one and one for all – (Wear Brookwood spirit wear or blue and white). Research shows that when students feel they belong to a group, a basic need is being met. This need promotes better learning, positive social-emotional growth and higher achievements.

Students in Mrs. Conrardy’s 4K class were engaged in four different focus areas during centers this week! The four centers included pumpkin investigation, building, and two dramatic play areas (kitchen and ice cream truck)!

In the pumpkin investigation, students made observations while picking out seeds (using our fine motor skills) and playing in the pumpkin pulp. They learned about the different parts of a pumpkin (seeds, pulp, rind, and stem) and discussed how using our five senses is important during an investigation.

In the other three centers, students engaged in social interaction. It is during this time that students learn to problem solve and resolve conflict all while pretending to cook or set a table and also build a structure while work at the ice cream truck. Students demonstrate understanding of rules during this time as well. Students work on taking turns, sharing and working together. These activities help to build a classroom community.
