No School - October 10, 2022 Professional Development Day for Staff
October is Fire Safety Month. We are excited to be partnering with the Bloomfield/Genoa City Fire & Rescue Team on educating our students at all grade levels about fire safety. We are excited to welcome our firefighters to BES on Oct. 13th and BMS on Oct. 14th! This year's slogan from NFPA is "Fire won't wait, plan your escape." Students in all grade levels will enjoy a special presentation about the ins and outs of fire safety and also have the opportunity to check out an ambulance, fire engine and various safety gear. HUGE thanks to the Bloomfield Genoa City Fire and Rescue for partnering with us to keep our students and families safe!
The 4K students continued learning about apples. They tried to build apple towers and used apple scented play dough as "glue". Students enjoyed listening to many apples stories and also got to make their own apple counting book. They strengthened their finger muscles and cores by rolling apple play dough into apples, ripped paper and glued it on to an apple picture, Q-Tip painted apple pictures, and helped make applesauce by tearing the apple slices into pieces. Students discussed the parts of an apple and then used two different kinds of food mills to separate out the skins and seeds from the applesauce. The 4K students explored if an apple would sink or float in the sensory table and enjoyed washing the apples that the Jumes family donated to our classroom. They also researched how apples get from the orchard to the store and how applesauce and apple juice are made. After a lot of research, students enjoyed apple juice and applesauce for snack! 4K had an "APPLE" solutly awesome two weeks exploring apples!
Anyone else out there missing the fun from this past Friday?! ....because we sure are when we look over these newly submitted pictures!! We also wanted to give a couple more shoutouts of thanks!!! Thank you to all the parents and families that volunteered to make the Glow Run so fun....from the registration table, to the snack table, to the clean up crew, and especially to those that donated all the snacks for the snack table! Without your help and support, the BFO wouldn't be able to continue to hold these great family events. We also wanted to thank the custodial staff for getting all of our tables and chairs together for the event and overlooking the fields after the event. We truly have the BEST Brookwood Family around!! We need YOUR help in planning of these fun events!! Attend the next BFO meeting on October 4th at 6:30pm at BES! Questions? Contact: email@example.com
In guidance class at BES, students in kindergarten learned about the importance of being helpers and 1st grade loved learning about the golden rule. They were so intrigued when they learned that the golden rule is known all around the world. They are also working on a golden rule activity related to the book, Do Unto Otters that they read. 2nd grade and 3rd grade learned about the importance of having a growth mindset - how to grow their brain (by trying hard things, by not giving up, by practicing...) and that mistakes and failures are part of being successful. Students also did a movement activity that helped them see that even when they make mistakes, if they keep trying, they can be successful. 3rd grade students also enjoyed learning about famous people who failed many times before becoming successful - ask your 3rd grader about Michael Jordan or Dr. Seuss!
