Brooks is a fifth grader at Bixby
Hi I am Brooks. I am in my last year at Bixby and that is a very special time in our school! I get to write the 5th grade play with my classmates and then we perform it for the whole school and for our parents. We also get to go to Cal-Wood for two nights in 5th grade. We will hike and stay in a couple of really cool cabins. At Bixby I really like my electives. We have them two times a week. We can choose an activity or class that our teachers or parents are offering on top of our regular classes. I have done Dance Party, played Civilization, taken the Science of Food, completed the Sewing Course and even learned more about Tinkercad in our Maker Space!
My regular classes are really cool too. In literacy, I can choose books to complete my 40 book challenge and my teacher is really helping me become a better writer. In math and science we learn a lot about ways to use numbers and data to make sense of the world around us. Did you know that there are now four confirmed gravitational waves? If you joined math club you would! In art we get to use the 3D printers and I used one with the Tinkercad program to make propellers for my science fair project. We work hard but I always have my breaks because swimming, free time and lots of time to play in lower yard or on the sports field are part of my schedule too. My mom went to Bixby, and she says: “It was the place where I learned to love learning but I also got to become me!”
