Candlelight Luncheon

Brookwood Elementary School will be having a special Candlelight Luncheon for our students on December 9th and 10th . Each class will have an assigned day where students get to eat in the decorated cafeteria. While we are not able to welcome visitors for this luncheon, we are excited about creating a special memory for the students.

Brookwood Elementary's Polar Express Day

On Friday, December 17th, Brookwood Elementary will be celebrating the arrival of Winter Break with a school-wide Polar Express Day! Students are encouraged to wear pajamas for this day of fun winter-themed activities.

A Message from the Clinic - Donations Needed!

The Brookwood Elementary clinic is in need of donations of pants or shorts. There have been a lot of accidents, milk spills, muddy clothes, and bloody noses. Unreturned clothes have depleted our clinic supply of extra changes.

All sizes of boys' and girls' athletic-type pants or shorts are needed. Donations can be sent in with students or dropped off at the Brookwood Elementary front office.
