To celebrate the end of the school year for our 4K students and their families, they celebrated by having an end of the school year 4K Olympics. They had a blast and we can't wait to see them all here in the fall for all day 5K!

Not only are our students celebrated at the end of the year but so are our staff! The end of the year staff luncheon was with great food and great company. It’s a time where we acknowledge milestones with years of service. Congrats to: Mrs. Fonk for 5 years of service, Mrs. Soto, Mr. Dittner, & Mrs. Denecke for 10 years of service, and Ms. Cottrell & Mrs. Collins for 15 years of service. We also celebrated Mrs. Sireno for her retirement and her 24 years of service at Brookwood. We are so thankful for our staff and their dedication towards our schools, students, and community. Happy Summer, Mustangs. #OnceAMustangForeverAMustang

Last week, our 1st graders took their field trip to Veterans Park and the Badger High School greenhouses! The students had a lot of fun playing together at the park and then learning from high schoolers about how to care for plants. Our students even had a chance to plant their own flower! This was a great way to finish their unit learning all about plants!

Congratulations, Bella! Bella guessed the closest date and time for when the first chick would "pip" at BES. Pipping is when the chick first cracks a breathing hole in the egg shell prior to coming out. As of right now, there are 3 chicks and a duck for the scientists to observe before they go to their forever coops/pens.
