"Read Across Brooks” (Monday, February 27- Friday, March 3)
This year, we will be exploring different Dr. Seuss books that are themed around positive lessons or ideas. We would also like to do a school-wide service project to show how much Brooks Elementary School cares.

Brooks Elementary Pre-K blasted off into a study of space. The pretend play area was turned into a space station. Our astronauts made sundials, shadow/fading art, and paintings from our galaxy. We simulated Earth’s revolution and rotation, moon bounced, and even graphed favorite planets. Click the link below to view a few photos from this exciting unit.
BES helped the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by raising $2,583.80! This was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about working together and impacting our community.
