Meet your 2015-2016 Student Council

Mrs. Hobbs

This year on the student council we have 16 wonderful students. They have been very responsible and amazing leaders already. On November 9th we went to a leadership conference at BYU to learn about being great leaders. Some of our keynote speakers were John Bytheway, Brad Barton,  Darroll Young, and Brent Burnham. The students had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Zack Antonino said, "John Bytheway taught him it's better to be respected than popular". Halle Fales said, "We learned to stop bullying and to not label people".

What is a Meteorologist?

Mrs. Wirfs

Our 4th grade classes have started a science unit on Meteorology. To begin, we needed to learn all about what a meteorologist is and does. We studied, read, and researched to gather information, then wrote reports. After that, we turned our meteorologist into US! They don their rain gear complete with hats, gloves, ponchos and boots.

The Bliss Squad

Ms. Sahlin

Brookside has a new group called The Bliss  Squad. Bliss stands for Brookside Leaders in Service and Spirit. The group is made up of 8 sixth grade students who strive to lead by example. They are a great group of kids.

The Bliss Squad recently participated in a service project in which they helped clean up trash at Wayne Bartholomew Family Park. They also helped clean out a hundred plus snow cone syrup bottles to prepare the concession stand to shut down for the season. The students really enjoyed serving the community.
