Greetings and happy new year from the Milford Brook School family! The end of November and the short month of December proved to be very busy and productive for the Milford Brook students and staff.
On November 28th, the second graders were able to experience the “Bee Man Assembly,” a highly educational and engaging presentation about the importance of bees to our ecosystem. By the end of the assembly everybody was participating, including staff, students, and parents!
The 29th brought the Milford Brook talent show “Kids on Stage.” With over 50 students participating under the guidance of Mrs. Magenheim, the show truly proved what talented students walk the halls of Milford Brook.
As we rolled into December first grade students had their exciting “Holidays Around the World” activities. This exciting day gave students the opportunity to learn about and experience a variety of cultures, including food, from around the world. Our talented students continued to be on display throughput the month of December.
On December 10th our Winter Choir Show was held at Milford Brook. With over 75 students participating, the show was full of energy and excitement. The students performed for their peers during the day and to a packed gymnasium later that night. December 12th brought the band and orchestra performances at MEMS.
The Milford Brook students, along with students from around the district, performed a variety of holiday-themed songs and did so wonderfully. The students’ hard work and dedication was evident with every song. The last week of school in December brought the Student of the Month celebrations along with a school wide pajama day on December 21st.
Students remained academically focused throughout this busy month but did take time on the 21st to appreciate the school, one another, and the importance of community. A special congratulations to Ms. Fisher’s class for winning the first quarter Study Island competition as well as to Mrs. Alboum’s and Mrs. Gannon’s class for winning the first quarter bucket filling contest.
