Brookland Elementary is excited to announce our next One Book, One School is "Clementine." See an introductory video by clicking the book cover below.
In this first book of the series, Clementine tries to help out her friend Margaret, but ends up in a lot of trouble for it. Things get worse each day of the week, until finally she's worried that Margaret is right: Clementine's parents might consider her "the hard one" in the family. They're up to something mysterious...are they thinking they'd be better off if they only had her little vegetable-named brother..."the easy one"? (excerpt from http://sarapennypacker.com ) We will begin reading our book the last week in March and continue through April. Also, voice recordings of each chapter will be accessible on the BES website. Our chapter schedule is as follows:
Trivia questions will be discussed during morning meeting after the assigned readings.
The Arkansas Commissioner of Education has granted Brookland Public Schools approval to implement Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) days during the 2017-18 school year. The approval of our AMI plan provides our district the opporunity to engage all students in relevant learning experiences on days when conditions prevent the schools in our district from being in session due to inclement weather or emergency circumstances. Review the following letter for more information.

The first award comes from the Northeast Arkansas Kids Directory. We were informed the Best Choice Awards for Kids & Families was a big success. People from all over Northeast Arkansas weighed in and they said that Brookland Elementary is the BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Northeast Arkansas. This is truly a special honor, as we have been voted BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in NEA for the second year in a row according to the readers of Kids & Families Magazine!
The second award recognized Brookland Elementary as one of the highest-achieving elementary schools in Arkansas. The Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas creates an annual report entitled the “Outstanding Educational Performance Awards,” highlighting the highest-performing schools in Arkansas. In the recently released report, Brookland Elementary received an award for Northeast Region Math High Achieving Scores. Awards are based on the OEP-created “school GPA,” calculated on the basis of the percentage of students that perform at each level on the ACT Aspire Math, ELA, and Science.
Congratuations! We are so proud of our teachers, students, and staff!
Susan Wise was voted Brookland Elementary's 2016-17 Teacher of the Year. Students, teachers, parents, and peers participated in the process. Congratulations!
