Recently the Student Council at David Brewer Elementary sponsored a food drive to collect canned goods for the food pantry available for students at Warren Middle School. The drive was so successful it took two van trips to get all of the food from Brewer to Warren. Thank you to the students and staff who participated.
The week started off with a bang for students at David Brewer Elementary. As a reward for showing a substantial decrease in the number of recovery room visits during the month of November, one student from each grade level was selected to throw a whipped cream pie in the face of principal Craig Idacavage or assistant principal Kevin Warner.
Fourth graders from David Brewer Elementary had the chance of a lifetime when they visited Kauffman Stadium for their recent field trip to learn history, science, and math through baseball. Students learned about how the angle in which a baseball bat hits the ball decides where in the field the ball will travel with the help of a video featuring Eric Hosmer. They were able to test this theory with a table top baseball field. Students learned about the history of baseball equipment by comparing old equipment with modern day equipment. Students also learned about all the muscles in the body that help a baseball player play their best and had to come up with exercises for each muscle they learned about. After the classes and lunch, students got to take a tour of the stadium where they saw such places as the Diamond Club, the press box, the visitor's locker room, the press room, and the Royals' dug out box.
David Brewer Elementary students and staff were proud to welcome some new faces to their school. Several members of the United States military will serve as "Military Mentors," spending time with students during lunch, recess, specials, and other parts of the school day. This week, a few of the mentors were at the school to meet everyone.
