Brookwood Goals for 2015-2016 School Year!
Brain Boosters are Coming to Brookwood This Year!
All students at Brookwood Elementary will receive weekly instruction in Art, Technology, Library/Media and PE/Playworks. We call these classes Brain Boosters. The Brain Booster schedule is as follows:
Kelso's Choice Conflict Management Skills program effectively teaches young children peace-making skills. It is a proven resource to increase confidence, reduce tattling and is a preliminary tool to prevent bullying.
The program is a powerful and timely tool to build a vital life skill for the young people in today's world. The program philosophy is simple: each child is smart enough and strong enough to resolve conflict.
Unlike some programs which tout peer mediators who are trained to intervene as conflict managers,Kelso's Choice assumes that all young people are capable of becoming peacemakers. Developed in 1992 and revised in 2007, it is a results driven comprehensive tool used successfully around the world.
