Resources & Upcoming Events

It was certainly “A World of Beauty” at Briarlake on International Night! And a world of thanks to all who attended and participated. The “Global Potluck” was a never-ending and abundant feast of delicious flavors! We had an amazing multi-generational display of traditional apparel representing 22 countries in our Flag and Fashion Parade! And we collected a whopping 1,466 diapers at the Leaning Tower of Pi-Pee Diaper Drive to benefit the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The event was a testament to the beautiful and diverse environment at Briarlake. Congratulations to all the students that participated in the 3rd Academic Challenge in Social Studies! All the posters were great and a wonderful addition to International Week.
