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.

Hello Brooks Global Parents!
Thank you to all who have signed up to cover classrooms and donate food so far! There are still slots for food available, especially main dishes. We are still in need of classroom coverage for teachers for the following teachers:

Please consider helping out in one of these classes during lunchtime if you are able!"

Each year, the PTA holds two luncheons (a holiday luncheon and a faculty/staff appreciation luncheon in the spring) for our amazing teachers and staff to thank them for all they do for our children. This is a great way for us to show the Brooks staff how much we appreciate all their hard work and dedication.

We invite you to be a part of the holiday luncheon, which will be held in the Media Center on Thursday, December 15, 2016. To make this luncheon a success, we will need help with volunteers to cover classrooms during lunchtime so that the teachers can come eat, as well as contributions of food. Below you will see 2 links to sign up-genius to help out in one or both of these ways.

The Giving Tree will be up from Dec 5th - Dec 21st.
We are collecting new hats, mittens, and scarves for an elementary school.

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.

Anyone can join the PTA! Parents, Grandparents, Students, and Siblings
