Principal Message

Dear Brooks Elementary Families,


Welcome to J.H. Brooks Elementary School! My name is Lucas Furlow and this is my eighth year as an administrator at the Moon Area School District. I attended Penn State University and earned a B.S. in Secondary English Education, a M.Ed. through Edinboro University, and Principal Certification through Gannon University. My wife and I have four children and reside in Ben Avon.

Brooks has roughly 372 students and serves grades K-4. The school has two life skills classrooms and contains three Allegheny Intermediate Unit programs: D.A.R.T., Pre-K Counts, and a Primary Expressions Classroom.

We pride ourselves in providing a warm and caring environment in order to promote the social, emotional, and academic growth of all children. This growth comes through thoughtfully planned learning experiences that establish a solid foundation for every student. We are excited that you are interested in our school and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the experiences awaiting at J.H. Brooks!
