Turning 15 On the Road
to Freedom

     Lynda Blackmon Lowery and Susan Buckley will be visiting with seventh grade students on Friday, March 31. Lowery, the youngest marcher in the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, shares her story, which demonstrates that young adults can be heroes. In her riveting memoir, as told to Susan Buckley and Elspeth Leacock, Lowery tells readers about her experience working alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. and how it felt to be a part of changing American history.

     On Thursday, April 6, Brookwood will hold Art Celebration Day to honor the creativity and incredible work done by our students. 
     This year there is a new format to the celebration. It will be a daylong event from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Artwork by our PreK through Grade 8 artists will be displayed throughout the school, and students will view the artwork with their Buddies throughout the school day. There will be a short presentation at School Meeting, a special "art-themed" lunch, and three mini-workshops for students will be offered from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
     Students need to sign up for these optional mini-workshops in advance. There is a limit of 16 children for each workshop:
1) Paper Marbling, Paste Paper, and other creative paper surface techniques, for Middle and Upper School students; 
2) Printmaking and Design, for Lower and Middle School students; 
3) Plastic Buildables, for Lower and Middle School students. 
     Parents and families are encouraged to view the exhibit after School Meeting from 10:30 -11:00 a.m. (and of course either before or after school).
     We hope to see you on April 6 from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. to honor and view the amazing work done by your children. Your encouragement and support of your child or children's creativity is greatly appreciated.
     If you have questions, please feel free to contact Kathy Stewart at either kstewart@brookwood.edu or 978-526-4500 ext. 6315
Thank you,
Kathy Stewart, Suzanne Kelsey and Annabel Wildrick
