Science Sunday in Pictures
PTA-sponsored Science Sunday was a HUGE hit with many Brookvale families and friends participating. Kudos and thanks to the stellar Stanford Chemistry Department Outreach team for putting together yet another afternoon of fun-filled, hands-on science activities for our community! Parent donations and support to the PTA made this possible, and we seek your continued support to bring such amazing events to our children and families. We also thank our 14 high school students from American High School who volunteered at the event.
