Scott and the Mayhem Poets!
Last week our school was visited by the Mayhem Poets. These three young men entertained us with very cool poems. The poems sounded a lot like rap. Scott volunteered and was picked to go on stage. "It was great, someone put on my glasses and I put on someone's hat. I was proud to be on stage," said Scott.
Former Student Helps in Haiti
A former Brookside School student, Mikela Karevelis, was featured in the local newspaper because she was helping orphaned children children in Haiti. She has traveled to Haiti 3 times with her church to help these children. The children became homeless and sometimes orphaned in the 2010 Earthquake. What a wonderful thing to do. We are proud of our former student!!
