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.

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
It's Easy! Fill out a Membership Form and Return to Brooks with cash or check
