Congratulations 2021 Gifted Student of the Year,
Menna Gebregziabher!

Menna Gebrgziabher pictured with her gifted teachers, Mrs. Moon and Ms. LaPerre. Brookwood Elementary would like to give a big congratulations to the 2021 Gifted Student of Year, Menna Gebregziabher! Menna is a 5th grade student in Mrs. Phillip's class, and this year has been in Mrs. Moon's Gifted Language Arts class as well as Ms. LaPerre's Accelerated Math class.

During this challenging school year, Menna says one of the most challenging parts has been separation from the classroom, but she says staying motivated is the key to her success. She says, "What I have done to succeed in the 'classroom' is working hard and staying motivated. When you really, truly work hard, you set your mind to something and you do it! It does not matter whether it is doing stats, or a quick write, the possibilities are endless." She says that with motivation and hard work you can do great things and reach your goals.

Menna's focus teachers, Mrs. Moon and Ms. LaPerre surprised her with the announcement during her Zoom gifted language arts class.
