Eighteen Upper School students were recognized at last week’s School Meeting for their achievements in this year’s New England Math League Contest (NEML). Congratulations to sixth graders Max M., Constantin A., Kishan P., Charlie D., Andy G., George H.; seventh graders Henry D., Elaine I., Reeve S., Alexa G., Troy M., Conor W.; and eighth graders Annika S., James R., Peter Z., Hunter Z., Elise C., and Alex D.
Congratulations to Jess C. and Conor W., the recipients of the 2014 Sonia Schreiber Weitz Upstander Award. The recognition by the Holocaust Center, Boston North, pays tribute to Holocaust survivor Sonia Weitz, a poet, author and spokesperson whose work put a face on Holocaust history.
President Barack Obama: "You've got Alex Emerson, who showed us how his 8th grade class at Brookwood School in Massachusetts changed the definition of "pen pals" by video chatting with students in Uganda. And one of the things they did was collaborate on cookstoves that help families in rural areas cook safer and with cleaner energy."
Brookwood's Administrators - John Peterman, Barb Liston, Nancy Evans, Lisa Johnson and Evan Diamond - are now on Twitter.
One day each week (Barb on Mondays, Nancy on Tuesdays, John on Wednesdays, Evan on Thursdays, and Lisa on Fridays), the thoughts and comments of one of these five are featured on the @BrookwoodSchool Twitter feed.
