This week at Brookside elementary is the PTA's Red Ribbon Week "PROUD TO BE DRUG FREE". Today everyone wore as much red as they could. The student from each class that wore the most read are pictured here. Tomorrow is wear your costume day, Wednesday: Internet safety  is no joke-wackiest hairstyles, Thursday: Pedestrian safety is up to me-wear helmet or hat, Friday: Be a hero, not a bully-dress like favorite superhero.

This is a great week to talk together as a family about your goals and expectations to be drug free, commit to safety on the internet and on the road and to look for ways to be kind to others.

The fifth graders had a visit from Kimball Arts Center.  Heather came to teach the fifth graders about the artist Jimmi Toro.  She shared his artwork and interesting facts about him.  Then, she visited each of the fifth grade classes to create a Jimmi Toro inspired piece.  They stated by drawing a blind contour, then a continuous line self portrait and finally a final copy where they added color and ink.  The students had a blast!
