In 'Community Walk,' Brooks School Officials to Visit New Students and Parents

Brooks Middle School Principal Keith Wood will again visit future students' home on Aug. 9.

Editor's note: The following is a press release from . 

Incoming  sixth-graders and their families can look forward to a visit from the principal on Thursday, Aug. 9.

That’s when Brooks Principal Dr. Keith Wood, his Assistant Principals Christina Sylvester and Jason Pascavage, and several Brooks faculty and staff members will take to the streets visiting the homes of every incoming 6th grader. National Junior Honor Society students will join them.

Wood and his team launched the summertime community walk last summer to “demonstrate our commitment to the families of Brooks Middle School.”

“For many, this is their first introduction to middle school which can be a scary proposition for any student,” he said. “This will help our students make an easier transition into Brooks.”

The community walk will begin at 9 a.m. and run until approximately 3 p.m. The Brooks staff will break up into teams that will be bused into various Bolingbrook neighborhoods where the teams will fan out to cover the students’ homes in each neighborhood.

Brooks staff members will spend several minutes at each home discussing the school day and answering questions.
