Brooker Creek Elementary

Hello Brooker Creek Families,

It's been a busy but wonderful week at school. These December days seem to fly by! Below is a brief update from school for the week ahead. Please note that we have picture retake day on Tuesday, December 15th. This will be a chance for all students that need a retake or missed picture day. If you are a MyPCS family that would still like to have a picture taken, please contact Mrs. Jajuga in the front office to schedule a time on Tuesday.

We are taking a break from preordering breakfast and lunch for this week in preparation for the holiday break. Next week's school communication will include breakfast and lunch preorder links for the first week in January. Thank you to everyone that is taking a few minutes to preorder breakfast and lunch.

Next week, our Student Council has organized holiday dress-up days for our school. A graphic created by Emily Marchione is included below. We are excited to celebrate the holidays next week as a whole school community.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jenn Mekler, Principal

Picture Retake Day is Tuesday, December 15th.

Congratulations to Ms.Taylor and Mrs. Glezer!

Helen Taylor and Laura Glezer, teachers in our Pre-K 3 room, were awarded a mini-grant from the Florida Farm Bureau.

Their project will offer their students the opportunity to learn about how plants grow. They will introduce them to the needs of plants and grow various plants too. They will be planting flowers and vegetables, growing some from seeds and some from seedlings. Our goal is to send some of their plants home for them to continue care for and nurture with their family members. They will also create a small garden here and at harvest make a yummy salad for all to enjoy at lunch.
