All Genoa City area Veterans are invited to Brookwood Middle School for a Veteran's Day Assembly celebration on Friday, November 11th, beginning at 9:30am.
This week, the first graders have been reading the books Creepy Carrots, Creepy Pair of Underwear, and Creepy Crayon by Aaron Reynolds. Each day they listened to the story getting read by the author and they have enjoyed it SO much. They have been writing using an adjective to describe the creepy carrots, if they would want a creepy pair of underwear, and what object they would turn creepy and what their book would be called. They also learned and filled out a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting Creepy Carrots and Creepy Pair of Underwear. The students have also completed a craft activity where they got to make Jasper Rabbit in a creepy pair of underwear as well. It was a fun week and the students really had a blast!

Students learned through classroom discussions, video clips and stories appropriate to their age. To wrap it up a unity tree of students' responses to bullying questions such as what is bullying, how can you help yourself or a friend and how to be a good friend. Students also signed an anti bullying pledge and received a badge for doing so. The tree and anti bullying pledge will be up through the month of October, don't forget to stop by and check them out when you are in for parent teacher conferences.

Way to go, Mustangs! Last week was a fun and spirited Homecoming week! From wacky hats and tie-dyes to snuggly pajamas and Brookwood swag, this was a fun way to band together as Mustangs across our District. On Friday, the middle school finished up the week with a pep assembly put on by the student council. The 6, 7, & 8 band kicked off the assembly and then the fall sports teams were recognized for a job well done. Our Mustangs really pulled together during this assembly...literally. It was a battle of the ages. There were tug-o-war competitions between homerooms and then cross-grade levels. Eventually, it was the aged that took the lead. The battle between Metcalf's homeroom and the BMS teachers was a tough one, but the teachers came out on top! Great job, Mustangs.
