Thirty-six students from the Lower School, Middle School and High School attended the State Concours Oral, a French forensic-style competition, and earned 34 gold medals and two silver medals. French has been part of the Brookfield Academy curriculum since the school's founding in 1962. Students continue to excel in Spanish, German and Latin as well.

Brookfield Central

Brookfield Central sold doughnuts and discounted movie tickets to students to raise money for its Project Graduation, which will fund activities for students about to graduate.

Brookfield Christian

Brookfield Christian School third-grade classes presented a Living Wax Museum for parents and friends. The students came to school dressed as a famous person from history to share their projects, timelines and creativity with others. Parents, family, friends and students discovered that the statuelike person would come to life if they pressed the designated button. By pressing the button, a short speech was recited as third-graders "came to life," describing what it was like to be someone from the past.
