Brookwood Elementary PTA offers two (2) $500 scholarships to graduating former students of Brookwood
Elementary who are CCISD seniors.
These scholarships will support former students who are focused on achieving
their career goals through higher education. The scholarship committee will consider the following factors
in evaluating applications: service and participation in school activities, community involvement, career
goals, work experience, a written essay, scholastic merit and overall impression. A completed application is due to the CCISD Career Counselor by April 1, 2015. For more information and the application, click here.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR
- Field day and Fun Run will be held on, March 13th which is the day before Spring Break. Coach Martin is coming up with a schedule that will accommodate all the activities.
- Our tug a war will be held on May 21st at 9 a.m. before the 5th graders leave for the pool party. The fifth graders usually leave for the pool around 11:30 am. They seem to have a lot of energy that needs to be released before walking to the pool.
- On May 22nd, we will host the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Day for the students. Oh what fun! Boots, sundresses and shorts.
- Career days are also slated for May.
