To show their appreciation for the faculty and staff at Branch Brook, the PTA bought each person a hibiscus tree to remember their years of service to the school.
Students from Branch Brook Elementary School were welcomed with open arms by their new principals, teachers and future classmates at Mt. Pleasant and Tackan elementary schools during their visits on April 21.
In an effort to ease the transition to their new schools next year, students from Branch Brook visited the school they will attend next year when Branch Brook closes its doors. Branch Brook Principal Ireen Westrack was on hand for both building tours.
At Mt. Pleasant Elementary School, Principal Joseph Ierano shared a slideshow presentation of all the fun-filled annual events that happen at the school, giving them a sneak peek of what they can look forward to when they start in September. Mt. Pleasant’s fifth-grade helpers offered tours of the building and Branch Brook students spent some classroom time in their respective grade levels.
At Tackan Elementary School, Principal Dr. Allyn Leeds welcomed the new students for a tour of the building and spent time visiting each classroom. After the tours, students gathered back in the gymnasium for a question and answer session and received a Tackan T-shirt. A parent meeting was held on April 24 in each building to provide an opportunity to meet the staff, tour the building and answer questions.
First-graders at Branch Brook Elementary School recently participated in a hands-on activity using light for Project Lead the Way. Students investigated the results of putting a variety of objects in the path of a beam of light. Students were able to describe the effect that different materials have on a beam of light, including reflection, refraction, and the creation of shadows and colors.
