• The Brookhaven Elementary School Science Fair is finally here!  This school wide science fair allows your child to have hands on learning experiences with the scientific method.  You can research and experiment with a new topic, or dive deeper into one of your favorite scientific topics!  Can you think of a better way to learn about the scientific method?

  • Pennies for Patients Charity Fundraiser
    Brookhaven Elementary is currently raising money to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through our annual Pennies for Patients Fundraiser.

    The fundraiser supports our Character Counts Pillar for Caring.

    Our goal this year is to raise $800.00 (though we’re hoping to surpass that!)  The grade level that raises the most money will enjoy a special treat, compliments of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

    If you would like to donate online, you can use this link: Donate Here!!

    Otherwise, you can send in any dollar amounts (coin or bills) with your child and there will be a collection container in each classroom. We will be collecting through April 2, 2015.

    Thanks for supporting such an important cause!

  • Yearbooks: The Brookhaven Elementary PTA is now taking pre-orders for the 2014-2015 Brookhaven Elementary School yearbooks. Your child’s school photo, along with candid shots taken throughout the year will be published. Order forms can be found in February Virtual Backpack.

    Pennies for Patients

    Brookhaven Elementary School’s Character Counts! Committee is in the middle of their 3rd annual ‘Pennies for Patients’ fundraiser to raise awareness and money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  This campaign kicked off with an assembly for the entire school; Pre-K through third grade gathered in the gymnasium to hear how they can help raise money and awareness.  This campaign started on March 13th and students continue to diligently bring in their pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar bills to show their support.  The original goal for the 3 week period was set for $800.00. Through the hard work of Brookhaven’s students, staff and community members, this goal has already been surpassed and our new goal is $2,500.00. This goal is going to take a lot more hard work from all of our caring students and staff but we know that we can do it!   During this campaign, students and staff are showing their support not only through generous donations, but through participating in fun spirit days each Wednesday. These days have included ‘Put a Cap on Cancer, ‘Team Up Against Leukemia’ and ‘Sock it to Cancer’. Students and staff have had a great time wearing silly hats, favorite team jerseys and even silly socks to show their support. During the first week an exciting school wide estimation game took place where all of the students estimated how many coins were in a jar.  We had 2 students who had the closest estimation. For their win, the entire jar of coins was shared between their grades.  Way to go!

    Brookhaven Elementary School is striving to be named a ‘LifeSaver School’ again this year. We will continue to raise money for this great cause through April 1st.  Please continue to send in your coins with your children. Another way of giving is to access Brookhaven Elementary Schools website and click ‘donate here’ or go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s website to donate. You can find this page by logging onto and click ‘Donate Now’.

    Brookhaven Elementary School would like to send a big THANK YOU to all students, staff and community members that are participating in this great cause.

    Brookhaven Elementary School - Stand Up Stand Out

    The students (K-3) enjoyed a musical program presented by Theater Three, Stand Up! Stand Out! The Bullying Project. The program is aimed at teaching children how to respond to bullying through famous children’s stories. The musical teaches students to take responsibility by standing up and helping others. In one story a character, Peg witnesses the bullying of Nellie and how she comes to terms with her responsibility. Peg, like so many bystanders, is faced with the choice of standing up for Nellie or standing by. The students learn the difference between telling and tattling. Telling is to get someone out of trouble and tattling is to get someone in trouble. In addition to dealing with the theme of bullying the program is also geared to teach young audiences about live theater. The program included both actors, puppets and song to stimulate the students’ imaginations! The program was provided through a grant supported by the South Country Education Foundation!
