The second graders at BES will be traveling to the Lake Geneva YMCA for five Monday afternoons starting April 22 (ending May 20th). They will be in the water learning valuable swimming skills like Swim, Float, Swim; Jump, Push, Turn, Grab; and Moving Bobs to Safety. We will also learn water safety skills both in and out of the pool. Everyone is able to do this free of charge thanks to the YMCA. The Geneva Lakes YMCA Aquatics Dept., is ALWAYS thinking about water safety because they are very passionate about teaching kids to swim and be safe around water to help prevent drowning. In our communities, there are so many lakes & pools that this is a necessary skill for our kids to be learning. We are joining over 1500 kids and 13 schools in Walworth County and beyond that have already come to the YMCA to learn these much-needed life skills. *Families can check with their child's homeroom teacher for more information and details on these events*

Third grade students took their geometry to the streets! They took all the information they have learned about polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals to create incredible mosaic chalk art. This was an enjoyable and academic break from their Forward state testing.

Our 7th and 8th graders have an opportunity to be a part of the elective class: Entrepreneurship which gives students a taste of what it is like to run their own business.  They work in groups to study the demographics of a market, develop product ideas, make a plan and present it for approval to staff members. The entrepreneurs then bring their item(s) to market by creating and selling their products to students and staff.  The sale is an exciting day and we are excited to announce that special day is tomorrow! Items for sale range in price from $1-$2. BMS students wanting to purchase in this sale will be given the opportunity by their teachers to visit the sale at varying times on April 12th. Proceeds from this sale will be put into the student activities fund that helps to support activities and events for all students at both schools.

In the 7th/8th grade elective course: arduino programming, students build a variety of circuit while also writing the program's function with the circuit. Each circuit and program perform a specific function, everything from lighting up LED lights, to controlling servos, to playing different sounds, and displaying information on a lcd screen. Students need to pay close attention to the program they write because a single error will cause the entire program to not function. Arduino programming is typically a class taught at the high school level, but the class is available to Brookwood students who have successfully completed the learn to code programming class.

Last week, our 4th graders spent a chilly afternoon at the Seno K/RLT Conservancy in Burlington, WI. They learned about Maple Sugaring and Native American History. The traditions of maple sugaring have long been a part of Wisconsin’s history for many centuries. This program focused on the process of making maple syrup and the rich Native American history behind this tradition. Students also had lessons on tree identification, how to properly tap a maple tree, the process of sap-to-syrup, and traditional sugaring techniques.

Last week, our 4K students and their VIPs enjoyed exploring messy science projects like slime and oobleck at our family outreach night. They explored chemical reactions, solids and liquids, and sink/float. It was such a messy but fun night for all!
