The Mustang Minute
Week of May 16th
FROM THE PRINCIPALS' OFFICES
Greetings Mustang families!
It's MAY-hem here at Brookwood...and in a GREAT way! Last evening, our BMS students shared their musical talents with us in another fabulous Spring Concert. HUGE thanks to all of the families who came out to support them and to Mrs. Collins and Ms. Bullock for their leadership. Ms. Skalecki and Mrs.Nast brought our 3rd Graders up to BMS for a visit on Friday. Students enjoyed a tour of the building with Mrs. Franz, meeting some of the staff, and Lunch/Recess with the 4th and 5th graders! Tonight is THE NIGHT - the BFO Family Fun Fair! We hope you'll all join us from 5-8 for some cotton candy, games, inflatables, and more! There are still MANY more exciting events up ahead in the coming weeks. Please read on for details.
Have a fabulous weekend, Mustangs!

WSMA State Solo and Ensemble
Congratulations to 8th grade student, Myles Derickson for receiving a "Superior" rating on his classical guitar solo at the WSMA State Solo and Ensemble festival at UW-Parkside on Saturday. Myles has been playing guitar for many years, but became more serious about practicing in 5th grade. For the competition, he played Capricho árabe by Francisco Tárrega, and it was a phenomenal performance! Congratulations, Myles! We are so proud of you!

From the Classroom...
What's Happening in Mrs. Horak's Art Classes?
It’s clay time for 3rd grade in the BES art room as well as the 4/5th graders in Mrs. Horak’s BMS art class! Third grade artists made a turtle sculpture out of red clay, pressed pencil holes on top of the shell and created their own clay turtle pencil holders! It has been a fan favorite for 3rd grade artists. Fourth & fifth grade artists put their sculpting skills to work creating a pinch pot monster. Each student began by making a pinch pot. After learning to slip and score to attach clay pieces together, their imaginations went wild creating fun monsters out of clay. They added crazy hair, eyeballs, horns, hats, and one artist even put braces on her monster’s teeth! As their art teacher, I have to say this is one of the most creative batches of clay monsters to have come out of the BMS art room! Brookwood artists love working with clay!
