October 9, 2017 Congratulations to Miss Bird’s class for bringing in the most Box Tops! They were given an Amazon gift card to buy something for their classroom. The PTA brought in $362.00 from the Box Top competition. Please keep saving your Box Tops. We will be having another competition soon and every little bit helps. If you log onto the Box Tops website,  https://www.boxtops4education.com, there are coupons for participating products. Also, there is a Box Top app,  https://www.boxtops4education.com/bonusapp 

which allows you to scan a product’s barcode and get double the earnings for the Box Top. Thank you for supporting this program.

We will be having the Reflections assembly Friday, October 13th at 2:00 pm.  You will be notified if your student’s entry has won in its category. Thank you for supporting this program and encouraging the arts.

The Halloween parade has been rescheduled for 2:30pm on October 31st. Our sixth grade classes will be performing “Thriller” at 2:15 with the parade starting immediately after. Please park in the school’s parking lot or on side streets. Please do not use Reams parking lot. Students will be allowed to wear masks during the parade, but they will not be able to wear them during school.

Brookside Elementary Had A GAINS District Dance Specialist Visit Last Week

Mrs. Melanie Fillmore
6th grade teachers, Mrs. Wirfs and Mr. Craig, show up to the GAINS Dance training with their headbands donned, ready to go! Tuf

"Brookside Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Brookside will be working with Dance Integration this school year.  3rd grade students used dance and movement to represent the characteristics of all LIVING THINGS.  4th grade students used white scarves to represent water droplets and moved their way through the different parts of the WATER CYCLE.5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students used mirroring and flocking movements to emphasize the important qualities of RESPECT, COOPERATION, and TEAM WORK.

The Special Needs unit danced as well, using props such as scarves and giant elastic bands to enhance their dance ideas.

Dance is a great way to make learning fun and to help students remember concepts more deeply."
