1st grade students learned about the life cycles in science this spring. All of the scientists at BES watched as chicks and ducklings were incubated and hatched. All together there were 9 chicks and 6 ducklings that went to good feather-ever homes!

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.

BES Kindness Squad is very excited about their last service project of the year! They have set their minds to preparing and running a donation drive for the Lakeland Animal Shelter. Kindness Squad needs the help of our Brookwood families, friends and the community to make their donation drive a success. Here is a video they have helped to prepare to get the word out about Lakeland Animal Shelter and their donation drive that runs from May 15 - May 29th! Following the donation drive, they will be hand delivering the donations to the shelter and providing some hands-on service work while at the shelter. Check out their video here: https://youtu.be/1bIA9_3-hLA Questions: April.Fitzsimmons@gcj2.k12.wi.us or Kristina.Nast@gcj2.k12.wi.us

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!

This morning, the 3rd grade Kindness Squad (with the help of their families) put on an amazing breakfast for the BES teachers! There was everything from biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, yogurt with granola, waffle bar, beautiful fruit, yummy pastries, and desserts. The students were beyond excited to be able to serve the teachers breakfast. We are so proud of their dedication to kindness and serving others.

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.
