Target has launched a new teacher appreciation campaign, "Thanks a Billion," which gives everyone the opportunity to thank a favorite teacher, and for every message sent, Target will donate $25 to the school to help our teachers continue to help our kids!
So please take a minute to visit https://thanksabillion.target.com or click through the link on Target's facebook page (Thanks A Billion) to write a thank you note to one of our fabulous Brookwood teachers!

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be at Brookwood Elementary on Friday, May 22, to offer a great day of fun for our kids. Students are invited to dress in their Rodeo and Western wear (but leave the spurs at home). Grades PK-5 will rotate through stations during the day. All children will be eating lunch at the same time from 11:30a to 12:30p, so please pack a sack lunch.  Sack lunches will also be served in the cafeteria. The school needs volunteers to be with each class during lunch and also to help decorate the school on Thursday after dismissal.  Please email president@brookwoodpta.com if you are available to help.
