Brimhall Elementary School students in Falcon Heights will return to school in January ready for challenges after two weeks of holiday break. Sixth-graders will ski Afton Alps on Jan. 15, and the first spelling bee in recent Brimhall history will be held on Friday, Jan. 17, for grades 3-6. Brimhall’s gym will be packed with young researchers eager to educate their guests at the 2014 Achievement Fair on Thursday, Jan. 20. The fair is for students who have opted to do independent research on a topic of their choice, from volcanoes to Victorian fashion.
