Operation Care and Comfort
Brookwood Middle School is conducting "Operation Care and Comfort" for our family members that are stationed here in the U. S. and abroad. We would like to send as many care packages that we can so all of our BMS family members serving in the military know we are thinking about them. If you have a relative currently serving in the military and would like for them to receive a care package, please return the following information to your Social Studies/History Teacher by this Thursday, November 20th. He or she may be serving in any Branch of Service.
Information to include:
- Relative's Name (including rank)
- Address of where relative is stationed
- Contact number in case of questions
Mrs. Hyche Wins "Sarver School Smiles" Contest
Sometimes wishes do come true! Mrs. Hyche has been in need of a new printer for her classroom. She is always doing innovative and high-interest lessons in her 6th grade science classroom incorporating STEAM concepts into her lessons. One idea she had was to "post" pictures of her classroom activities on her door using an Instagram type display. In order to do this, she has had to use printing services at local department stores to publish the photos of her students' work. Now, thanks to one of her students, Katie, and the orthodontic office of Dr. David Sarver, her wish has been granted. Katie posted a photo of Mrs. Hyche on Sarver's Facebook page in a contest called "Sarver School Smiles". It is a contest only for teachers to be recognized for their great work and have a wish list item granted. In order to be in the final drawing, a teacher had to have at least 25 'likes'. Mrs. Hyche was the lucky teacher who had her name drawn in the final drawing for a brand new HP printer/scanner! Congratulations to Mrs. Hyche and to all the students that this big win will impact! And a special thank you to Dr. Sarver for rewarding teachers!
On Tuesday, October 28th, Rich Wingo and Bill Searcey were featured speakers at our Red
Ribbon Week Assembly. Both are former football players for the
University of Alabama and played during the '70s for one of the most
famous college coaches of all-time, Paul "Bear" Bryant. Mr. Wingo played pro football for the Green Bay Packers and now resides in Tuscaloosa. Mr. Searcey played pro football for the Detroit Lions and has written a book called High Tide: A Story of Football, Freefall, and Forgiveness,
which describes his glory days of football, as well as the low points
of his life involving drug addiction, and ultimately his triumph over
drugs. Searcey shared his personal testimony with our students and faculty. What a powerful and moving experience!
