Our Day at Brooklet Elementary School Begins in a Positive Way!
Students arriving by bus between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. and car riders arriving between 7:18 and 7:50 a.m. are greeted by smiling staff members at the front of the school. All students go to the multipurpose room or cafeteria until 7:30, when they are dismissed to go to homeroom classes. Breakfast is available from 7:15 until 7:40. The tardy bell rings at 7:50 and is closely followed by school-wide announcements and character education mini-lessons, such as character education discussions, the Pledge of Allegiance, and Moment of Silence.
Every child receives language arts and math instruction for the bulk of the day, with science, health, and social studies alternated throughout the nine week grading period. The curriculum is based on Georgia Performance Standards and Bulloch County's Promotion Criteria. Appropriate objectives and test-taking skills are taught throughout the year and are based on standardized and Criterion-referenced tests. Every student also has opportunities to participate in the technology lab, physical education and music or art on a rotating basis. Every grade level has a total of 15 to 20 minutes for recess daily, as well as ample opportunity to participate in our Accelerated Reader Program (K-5).
The dismissal process begins at 2:15 p.m. for kindergarten and lasts until 2:30, when our day ends as it began, with smiles and waves.
