Welcome to Brookside Elementary

Early Out day is now on MONDAY

Today, January 3, 2017, is NOW a 2-hour delay start. That means we will begin at 11:00.  Our AM Kindergarten has been cancelled.  If your child has already been picked up by the bus, we will gather them and keep them safe and busy.

Good Morning Brookside Tigers,

I wish this weather would cooperate so we could get students outside for recess.  Please send your child with a coat because we will go out as much as the weather allows.  You should hear the cheers from the classrooms when we announce it's an outside day.  They are missing their time to play and be kids.

6th Grade Field Trip

On Friday, January 27th, the sixth grade got to go on a field trip to Clark Planetarium. When we arrived the students got to explore the building and play with all their interactive equipment. They could play on mars, control robots, take quizzes, act like they were news reporters, and so much more. Then we went and ate lunch at the gateway mall. When we came back we went into the DOME theater and learned all about constellations, moon phases, and how the earth rotates. After that we went to a show about why we have seasons on earth.

Best Handwriting in Third Grade!

These two third graders, Dominick Mortensen and Raegan Walker, received a certificate for the best handwriting, along with their own pen and journal. This should encourage them to keep on working on their handwriting. Keep up the good work!

This year, the 3rd grade students learned about different Christmas traditions celebrated around the world. Some of the countries the 3rd graders studied were; Germany, Mexico, Japan, holland and of course, America. Students had fun learning about various cultural traditions, while incorporating drama, dance and music in their Christmas program. A big thanks to the amazing 3rd graders who made the program a success. A big thanks also goes to mrs bird, who wrote and directed the program.
