Brookwood PTA
Lunchbox Parent Program
Monday, April 13th
11:30 a.m.
Rm. 213

Encourage Your Child to Think!
Thinking is the key to learning.  If a child learns to think at an early age, school will become easier and more exciting.  Thinking is also the key to self-directed learning.  Come and learn how to encourage thinking skills and metacognition in your child.  This is open for all parents at Brookwood.
 Bring a lunch, questions and a friend!


The Box Tops for Education contest will end May 1, 2015.  To help your class win, please bring your unexpired and neatly trimmed Box Tops to school in a Ziploc bag marked with your teacher’s name. Thanks you for supporting PTA in this effort.

 The 5th grade pool party is scheduled for Thursday, May 21st.  The rain date is May 29th.  We are currently collecting cash donations ($5-10 per student) to help cover the cost of the event.  Please put donations in an envelope marked "Pool Party" and return to your homeroom teacher by April 22.

 Each year a slide show is created to commemorate the elementary school years of the 5th graders.  Please send up to 5 pictures for the slide show.
Please keep the following guidelines in mind when choosing pictures:
  • Limit is 5 pictures
  • Pictures should be of school related activities such as field trips, class parties, carnival, field day, class activities, robotics, chess club, fun run, student council, etc.
  • Group shots are better than individual
Send pictures to 5thbrookwood2015@gmail.com.  Please include your child's full name along with pictures in the email.  Deadline for pictures:  April 22, 2015.

NOTE:  Please help out the person creating the slide show by turning in your pictures soon.  Please do NOT wait until the last minute!


In addition to our paper recycling, Brookwood Elementary is now recycling cans, plastics and cardboard.

Thanks to Girl Scout Troop 7318 for providing the school with posters, a PowerPoint presentation, and a promotional video to kick off this new recycling program.

There are blue recycling containers in several locations around the school including the cafeteria.  Please do not put glass products or garbage in these containers.

Thanks for helping to make our school green!
