The Mustang Minute
Week of January 17th
FROM THE PRINCIPALS' OFFICES
Greetings Brookwood Families,
It is mid -January and with that comes the end of the grading term. Teachers are now working on finalizing reports cards, which will be sent home with children later this week. If you have any questions about your child's report card, please do not hesitate to reach out to their teacher.
In addition to report cards, January has brought us some swings in temperatures. Please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather. We send students out for recess when it is safely possible. Our threshold for outdoor recess is a windchill temperature of 7 degrees or warmer.
Thank you once again for your ongoing support. Have a wonderful week.
Mr. Braden and Mrs. Franz

What's Happening in Mrs. Mohr's 6th Grade Spanish Class?
BMS Academic Lab Revamp
A new semester offers an opportunity for us as a staff to evaluate current systems we have in place and make adjustments for the betterment of our students. That being said, we will be restructuring the Academic Lab for Semester II. Here’s the nitty gritty:
Academic Lab will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, when school is in session.
Students will begin their study time with one of their teachers, right after school in that teacher’s classroom.
At 3:30pm, students will then report to the Academic Lab in the library. A team of Academic Lab teachers will continue to help students in working on the tasks of focus, as assigned by their teacher.
Academic Lab teachers will also assist students with putting any unfinished assignments needing to be completed into their assignment notebooks, so that families are in the loop of tasks that still need attention at home.
Academic Lab will end at 4:30pm. Students will not be allowed to leave early unless a parent needs to pick them up sooner.
The Late Bus will continue to be offered as afternoon transportation home from the Academic Lab, and will depart promptly at 4:30pm. (Note: The Late Bus will also still be available on Tuesdays for students in athletics).
Families: We need your help in giving our students the attention they need and deserve. We hope that you will take full advantage of this resource when your student is in need of additional support.
