It is Red Ribbon week at Brookside School. The students are learning how to keep their bodies safe and healthy. This week they had fun at an assembly where the Happy Valley Derby Darlings skated for the students and showed the importance of wearing the proper safety gear. Officer Mitchell from the Springville Police Department also came with his motorcycle and talked about safety on the streets.
6th Graders dusted off thier costumes to entertain the PTA with a blast from the past. Students performed "Thriller" which they learned for Halloween last year and are excited to polish it up for this year's holiday.
Mrs. Ewing's first grade class was visited by Mrs. Annette Bird's dad, Mr.s LeRoy Yorgason, who keeps bees. They saw the boxes, smoker, protective clothing, and some of the comb. They had many questions and learned a lot about bees.
Brookside students enjoyed the school carnival. There were bouncy toys, games, a rock wall, and toys and food. It was sure a fun time.
Brookside first grade learned all about not giving up just like The Little Engine Who Could. Mr. Gappmayer came in and taught them that when things get hard all they need to do is say, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can." Pictured are Jeffrey Gerhart, Miles LeSeuer, Jackson Washburn, Sky Giles, Sadie Crandall, Aizlyn Sauvageau and Mr. Gappmayer.
For the Excellence in Service Award this year, from Brookside Elementary, the PTA has chosen the head custodian, Mr. Rod Hall. He was chosen because sometimes those who are working hard behind the scenes don’t always get the credit they deserve. We appreciate all the hard work he does and the kindness he does it with. Rod keeps a clean, safe school and he loves children. It can be rare to have a custodian as loyal to both passions—keeping clean school and caring for students. He loves to interact with the children and make them smile and laugh. Thank you Mr. Hall for all your efforts to make Brookside a better place to be.
5th grade students from Brookside School did a musical presentation for Nebo School Board. They were directed by Stephanie Rigg.
