At Brooks Global Studies, we prepare students to become active, knowledgeable participants in a global society. Our studies lead them to understand how their actions as individuals impact the larger community of their classroom and the school, just as the actions of a single country affects the world. Our children learn to genuinely respect and accept the differences that make people and their cultures unique.

During the year we have numerous Spirit Nights. 
Spirit Nights are a great way to help Brooks Global earn money for our PTA budget.
It's a fun evening at a restaurant (or store).
We earn a percentage of the proceeds and you don't have to worry about dinner that night. Your kids even get to visit with friends.

We need parents to help on October 26th beginning at 3pm in the Cafe to help unload and sort the Innisbrook delivery. We will also need some parents at drop off and dismissal for a few days to help get orders to people. If you can help, please email

Volunteers needed for Brooks Book Exchange!
Please arrive at 7:35 to set up as the students arrive.
 For each book brought in, give the student a card. They will return the card once they find a book they want. There is no limit on the number of books they can bring in. We ask that they are not board or activity books. Be sure to check for library books as well!
Start loading the cart when the 7:55bell rings and remind the children to hurry so they won't be tardy for class.  You can reach me by cell/text at 336-493-1661.
It will be helpful if you can sign up for the same time each month if you can.  Thank you in advance!  I will be there most mornings as well.

If you have a question about an event or to add something to the newsletter,
