Brookwood Elementary School has been busy raising money to provide assistance to the people of Haiti. The first donation to the school’s “Half Dollars for Haiti” came minutes after the red buckets from the Salvation Army arrived. Three students, Meg Flynn, Aly Vyfvinkel, and Nicky Lu Vyfvinkel, also raised $285 selling hot chocolate. On Monday, the girls presented the Salvation Army with a check for the total amount raised by Brookwood students $3,638.63. At the event, which was a fundraiser organized by the Brookwood PTA, the fifth grade played “We Shall Overcome” on recorders. The fifth-grade students were under the direction of Miss Katie Dewey.
