In less than 96 hours, you will all be at Sneak-A-Peek :O and then school begins the very next day! We are so excited about this new school year and can’t wait to get started.
Remember, all you need to start a great school year, is your wonderful presence and a great attitude. You will meet your teacher(s) and get details at Sneak-a-Peak, but paper, pencil, and a lunch is all you have to worry about for Wednesday, it will be a great day!
We look forward to seeing you Tuesday as you check out the new building and the upgrades to the original building! See you then! 🙂
We also raised $1,870 from the Facebook #GivingTuesday donation campaign. Unfortunately, we weren’t fast enough to receive any of the matching funds, but the donations are well appreciated regardless!

As you are making your end of the year tax deductible donations…
TODAY ONLY Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. CLICK HERE to donate using the donate button at the top of our page.
Whether you have $10, $100, or $1000 to give, it all adds up! Especially when being matched! This is also a great way to maximize an end of year tax deduction.
WE need your help to reach our goal of raising $20,000 to furnish the new building and the Science Lab! Here are some ways to engage your friends, family and co-workers:
* Share information about #GivingTuesday on your social media accounts.
* Send an email challenging your co-workers, family and/or friends to give up the money they would spend on coffee and make a donation to Brookwood Christian! You could do the same with giving up lunch or dinner out. Stay home and play board games with your family instead of going to the movies, etc.
* Email your families, friends & contacts an email to encourage giving to Brookwood Christian.
Please go vote for our story here. You can vote for as many stories as you want, but only once per story per day through Nov 30. 15 finalists will be chosen to be judged with 1st place receiving $10,000, 2nd receiving $5,000, and 3rd receiving $2,500.
Feel free to write your own #MyGivingStory and name our nonprofit as the award recipient!
We are a private school that serves students who have not been successful in public or private schools due to their unique learning needs. Many of our students are diagnosed with a language based learning disability such as dyslexia.
The current campus was established in 2008 by current Principal/Director, Kim Wigington, in order to better serve her two daughters’ reading comprehension concerns, one with dyslexia and the other an English language learner, adopted from Latvia.
While we are extremely proud of the achievements of our students, we would like to be able to help more students in need of the same services. We have outgrown the current building and are in the process of expanding our campus, costing approximately $675,000, which is why we are eternally grateful to Lake City & Acworth Animal Hospitals for their support in our continuing fundraising efforts.
