This week in Mr. Dittner’s 6th grade math class, students have been working on writing and solving proportions. They were given a recipe that makes 6 sugar cookies. They were required to use proportions in order to figure out how much of each ingredient they would need in order to make enough cookies for the entire class. We’ll see how their cookies turn out!!! #BrookwoodsBest

For the past 10 years, our district has had a strong connection with the School Leaders Advancing Technology in Education (SLATE) Conference. We have not only been consistently sending teachers to learn and grow in their technology advancements at this conference but have also had the opportunity to be consistently chosen to lead and present there as well. At SLATE, our educators are able to share and network with other professionals the great things that our district is doing to move our students and the world of education with the use of technology forward. This year, the team of presenters were Heather Stanley, Caitlyn Kiefer & Helen Xiong. #BrookwoodsBest #slatewi

Students in Ms. Lind and Mr. Herman’s classrooms were challenged to solve a string of lights problem after studying series and parallel circuits. Students were to design a string of lights to solve a company’s customer issue to use the least amount of wire and the least amount of energy sources, so it would be the most profitable to manufacture. Teams were to simulate a burned out bulb and design and test different circuit designs that would make the customers happy with the company’s product. Here are some pictures of what the design teams came up with. #BrookwoodsBest

BROOKWOOD FOR THE WINNNNNN!!! Last night, the Brookwood girls basketball team beat a conference powerhouse, Yorkville, 21 to 20 in the first round of the playoffs. Our girls will now be advancing to the final four of the playoffs. The Brookwood defense held Yorkville to 4 points in the 1st half! The scoring was spread out amongst the girls in a tremendous team effort. Taylor Palazzo made a 3 pointer to get the team started, and Tessa Coari beat the buzzer at the end of the first half with a basket. Lilly Villareal and Natalie Porras led the charge with aggressive defense and offense. Lilly Butinas sealed the victory by making a free throw with seconds remaining in the game. Congrats to ALL our girls on on huge playoff victory! We hope to see you at Yorkville on 12/3 for our next game to determine who heads to the championship game on 12/5! #BrookwoodsBest
