Brooklet Elementary to Host 19th Annual Pumpkin Parade

15th Annual BES Pumpkin Parade Banner.jpgOctober is National Book Month, and Brooklet Elementary has been using this event, along with the other symbols of fall to promote reading and literacy.  For 19 years parents and the community have packed the streets of downtown Brooklet to see kindergarten through fifth-grade students bring their favorite book characters to life with costumes and elaborately decorated pumpkins.


Set to music and narrated by BES Media Specialist Belinda Davis, the parade gives students a chance to show their book-themed costumes while escorting their pumpkins on foot. As the students march down Parker Avenue, be sure to catch a glimpse of these transformed pumpkins begin pulled in little red wagons.


Details:  Friday, October 31, 10:00 a.m., Downtown Brooklet (Parker Ave.)

Teen Mazes Highlight Red Ribbon Week

Teen Maze 2014.jpgIllegal use of alcohol by teenagers is a local issue that is currently receiving increased attention; however, it is not the only unwise behavior choice that can affect children. That’s the focus of the Bulloch Alcohol & Drug Council’s (BADC) Teen Maze, an interactive prevention activity for more than 1,000 tenth-grade students from all local public, private, and charter schools. It is hosted annually at Bulloch County School’s three high schools as part of age-appropriate activities for national Red Ribbon Week October 23 – 27.  The first two Teen Mazes were held at Portal Middle High School and Southeast Bulloch High last week, and the third will be Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Statesboro High School.

Reward Schools Receive $11,500

School System Logo Blue for web.JPGBulloch County School's was notified by the state this week that its two "Reward" schools will receive a total of $11,500 in additional federal Title I funds due to their academic achievement.  Brooklet Elementary(BES) will receive $7,000 and Portal Middle High School (PMHS) will receive $4,500. Though it is up to the schools' principals to determine how the funds will be used, all expenditures must be for educational purposes and meet the guidelines set by the state.


In September 2014, the school system reported that BES and PMHS were designated as “Reward” schools by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) based on performance data collected for the state’s accountability system, the College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). This designation is reserved for the state's most accomplished schools. This is the third year in a row that BES was named a “Highest Performing” school, and PMHS’s second year as a “Highest Progress” school.
