Mighty Milers Club
Congratulations to all of the participants of the Mighty Milers Club. We spent four weeks running inside, on the fitness trail and around the school grounds. Students tracked their mileage using the EzScan App on an Ipad provided by the Twin Valley Community Education Foundation. After running each lap students would scan a card which tracks their mileage and uploads it to the EZ Mileage Club website. Combined, participants ran 108 miles!! Please be on the lookout for other running opportunities in spring of 2017. Hopefully, we will have several options for Pre-K through 8th grade here at Honey Brook and district wide as well. If you have any interesting in helping with running clubs or other running activities please feel free to contact me at any time.   Mr. Linsky  glinsky@tvsd.org

Honey Brook Elementary Center students who were the top fund-raisers in their recent
Math-a-Thon to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital with even coordinator Brian Emerich
and Principal Chasity Cooper.

Large St. Jude Donations "Calculated" by Honey Brook Students!

Recently, students at the Honey Brook Elementary Center participated in a Math-a-Thon, to benefit patients at the St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN. Altogether, more than $4,500.00 was raised to help pediatric cancer patients and their families.  St. Jude's is one of the leading cancer treatment centers for children in the world. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude's for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. The students at Honey Brook Elementary learned about St. Jude's and their mission. Then, they put their math skills to good use in securing sponsors and raising money for this worthy cause. Efforts like those at Honey Brook Elementary and from schools all over the country have helped St. Jude's to push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. The students at Honey Brook Elementary have done a great job in not only raising money toward these efforts but also in learning the importance of helping others.
