Brookfield News

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we have lost a dear member of the Brookfield Family. Ms. Judy Carney passed away over the February break. Ms. Carney truly loved spending time with your children and had become their favorite adoptive grandmother here at school. We send our thoughts and condolences to her family. We will have a special tree-planting ceremony in her honor this spring and will invite all parents and students to attend. If any child or parent needs grief assistance, please contact the office.

Hopefully you haven’t put away your shovels and snow blowers yet, because it looks like a significant winter storm is coming. Please monitor your texts and emails from the school each morning.

We do not always follow the Washoe County School District decision on closures or delays. If the Washoe County School District is closed or delayed for any reason, (snow, wind, rain, fire, or flood), we will not automatically be closed or delayed. We will consider all of the information available and notify our families as soon as the decision is made, with the goal of informing everyone by 6:00 am that day. We may implement a 2-hour academic delay, but if possible, student care will begin at 7:30 am. If there is a 2-hour academic delay on a Friday, we will hold a full day of school at the Elementary and Middle School Campuses. Regardless of the school’s official decision, please travel only when you and your family can do so safely. We understand that our families come from near and far, and that the conditions at your home may be drastically different from ours at school. Please use caution in and around the school campus, including the parking lots and walkways.

Please be sure your email, cell phone, and home phone are current in our School Messenger automated system; call the office if you have not received previous school notices.

Mount Rose has offered to extend their youth lessons for Brookfield School students for another 4-5 weeks at the same price of $250 (the amount will be prorated depending upon start date). However, we need a minimum enrollment of 10 children registered in the program in order to make it happen. We currently know of 8 students who are willing to join; we need at least two more students. If you are interested in enjoying the late snow, please contact Mrs. Stanton BY THIS FRIDAY, March 2nd at 775-849-0704. Thank you to Mrs. Stanton and Mrs. Rogers for spearheading this Session 2 campaign!

Bricks 4 Kidz kept our Ski Week Vacation Campers busy and happy last week!

Art / Invention / Science Night

There is an exciting event coming up for all of Elementary and Middle School in which your Brookfield student will be participating. All families are invited to join us for our “Art, Invention, and Science Night” on Thursday, March 22nd from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Brookfield’s Annual Expo combines many skills your child learns at Brookfield. All students will be displaying their inventions or science experiments and reports. Mrs. Reid is also joining this wonderful night, and the students will be displaying their artwork. The event will take place at both the Elementary and Middle School campuses. Artwork, wine, and refreshments will be in our Art Gallery at Middle School, and the inventions and science projects will be at the Elementary School.

Classes who chose to do inventions will become junior inventors, expanding their creative problem solving skills by creating their own inventions. The inventions are created to solve every day problems. Problem solving skills are vital in today’s world. The invention process helps students develop these skills at an early age.

Other classes have chosen to explore the scientific process by running their own experiments. The students have already begun working on their experiments and will be presenting their findings. Look for information coming home from your student which will explain the step-by-step guide to creating his or her own invention or science experiment. Please go over this information with your child to make sure you, your child, and your child’s teacher are on the same agenda regarding timelines, expectations, and deadlines. If you have any questions, we recommend you ask your student’s teacher for clarification as early as possible.

Your support and encouragement are necessary for a successful completion of this project. However, these inventions, reports, and experiments are to be completed by the students. We ask parents to allow their children to own all facets of the project and help only when adult supervision is necessary. Remember, some of the best ideas come from what may at first seem like a silly concept to an adult, but is of serious concern to a child! The projects which garner the most attention and consideration at the expo are the ones clearly assembled by the students, and little imperfections and improvising is expected. If you make a model, it does not have to work.

Each student will submit a three-sided display board except Pre1st and 4th Grade. Pre-1st will present on one board and 4th Grade projects are provided by the school on life-size sheets of paper. We have a limited supply of science boards for sale in the office for your convenience of $5.00 each. These boards can also be purchased at Target, Wal-Mart, and Michael’s.

Please feel free to ask us if you have any further questions. We hope your child really gets into the creation of his or her invention or science experiment. These projects can be fun and full of learning not just for your child, but also for the entire household! We hope you can join us on Thursday, March 22nd, but we ask that you please leave your display boards at school for everyone else to enjoy for the remainder of the evening.
