water Water for Topene

Our BES 5th graders have begun a “Pay It Forward” fundraising project to build a well at Topene Primary school in Mozambique, Africa. There will be a variety of fundraising activities our students will participate in to help us raise funds until February 2018. We have already raised over $2,000 with our 5th grade Entrepreneurs Fair! This donation site will hopefully help us reach even more people to create awareness of the project.

The construction company needs approximately 90 days to complete the installation of the well. We plan to hold a school-wide assembly at the end of the school year in which our students Skype with Topene Primary and see the results of their efforts.

This project will allow us to help foster a culture of kindness and bring global awareness to our students. Statistics related to illness and death, as a result of unsanitary water, among children in Mozambique under age 5 are astounding (more than 14% of Mozambican children don’t live to age 5). To make a real-life connection with the texts we have read in class, we are attempting to teach our students that they can “Be The Change”. This project will provide our students an authentic learning opportunity in leadership, as well as a front row seat to witness that, with teamwork, they can truly bring about change in our world. We appreciate any support you may be able to provide! Please share!

Brookside Family Center

The Brookside Family Circle is available to all Brookside students and their families.  The center's focus is to remove barriers to student learning by assisting students and their families in meeting their needs.  We provide support to families by linking them with community and school resources that will assist them.  We work to promote and provide parent and community involvement in the schools, services to students and their families, prevention programs, recreational opportunites and referrals for basic needs.  The school nurse is also located in the Family Circle should you have health concerns.  The center is located next to the gymnasium and someone is available between 8:00 and 4:00. You can contact Debbie Richardson, Coordinator and/or Kim Powell, School Nurse at 887-9871.
