A tradition we are building at Brookwood Middle School is an annual collaboration between art and band. The photography classes learn about composition, lighting, and backgrounds, this helps our students when taking the photos. 7th and 8th grade band students come to the art room for a series of formal portraits; one holding their instrument, one playing their instrument, and one photo of a close up of their hands playing their instrument. This project was inspired by a quote that Mrs. Collins shared "As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others." -Audrey Hepburn "The beauty of music-making is that you do both simultaneously." Students take home their photos at the end of the spring concert. All photos are taken and edited on the school ipads. Thank you to Callie C, Alyvia S, and Allie B!

7th & 8th grade students in Life Skills class had another guest career speaker, our very own Mr. Dennis! Before becoming Broodwood's 7th grade math teacher, Mr. Dennis was a microbiologist. Students learned how his interest in science during high school turned into pursuing a college degree in biology and chemistry. Mr. Dennis shared that he enjoyed how he was able to directly apply his college education to his work in a lab testing microorganisms. Students asked questions and also reflected on how this career would interest them or impact their future career choices.

If a picture says a thousand words, just check this out!! Our spring forest outing last week offered a variety of activities for all ages. Students across the district spent some time in our school forest. Groups spent time doing various activities such as removing an invasive species to save the forest, use binocular-hand lenses-viewers to observe off trail, collect and make bookmarks & bracelets, scavenger hunts, and see the community garden. For some groups, another part of the day was spent doing eco-art projects, playing predator-prey tag, and beginning their units on children's mental health. It was a day packed full of exploration, observation, learning and creativity!

The schools were a sea of green today as staff and students showed support for Children's Mental Health Awareness. K-3 students have learned what mental health is, how to practice self care, managing big emotions and understanding that it's okay to ask for help when their mind doesn't feel healthy and happy.
