Brooks Middle School is seeking local residents and business people who would be interested in a newly formed community partnership program known as “FANS” (Friends and Neighbors Supporting Students) of Brooks Middle School.
The FANS program, launched four years ago at Bolingbrook High School, is designed to bring community members into the school to spend some time with the kids and to see the good things our kids are doing. In the BHS program, each volunteer generally spends an hour or so in school visiting with students once or twice a month during peak passing times mostly before school, during lunch or after school.
Brooks is looking for parents to monitor the halls and cafeteria, assist office personnel and/or help with activities throughout the school year.
“Parent volunteers are a key resource and can provide a much-needed support base for our students. Their presence provides an example for our kids of how important it is for everyone to give back to their community, and provides an additional opportunity to strengthen the relationship between our school and the community we serve,” said Brooks Principal Dr. Keith Wood.
