Brookdale Elementary Honors Millionaire Reader
Brookdale Elementary recently announced its first Millionaire Reader for the 2018-2019 school year, Sarah Adams. Sarah is a fifth grade student that is very passionate about reading.
Brookdale staff and students came together to celebrate Sarah and present her with a basket of goodies that included several hardback books and an Amazon Fire tablet. Sarah was also awarded with her very own bicycle which coincidentally she has been hinting to her mother to get her for Christmas.

Pre-K Classes Get Guest Readers, Books
On Dec. 13, central office employees, board members and Superintendent Dr. Curtis Jones Jr. visited Pre-K classes across the District. Jayla Whitfield from WGXA also visited a classroom with Dr. Jones. These guests read "Snowmen at Night" by Carolyn Buehner to the students, led activities and gave each student a copy of the book to keep.
"Now that you've read this book with Dr. Jones, we want you to take it home and read it with your families," elementary coordinator Olena Floore told the students at Carter Elementary.
With Christmas Break beginning, we'd like to encourage students of all ages to make reading a part of your plans!
