Today we dressed to show our Christmas Spirit.  We saw elves, a gingerbread man and many dressed in pajamas.  We just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!

We have a tradition at Brookside every Christmas where we hold a Christmas sing-a-long.  We sing together several songs, each grade level performs a song and the teachers showed their talent on the boom whackers.  One of our favorite parts of this assembly every year is singing theTwelve Days of Christmas as a whole school. This year, we had a special treat.  Santa Claus and Mrs. Clause came to visit. We sang along with Santa and he told us a story. This is a fun tradition we all look forward to every year.

It Pays To Read

Submitted by susan.bird on Fri, 12/20/2019 - 15:51

Twice a year we hold an It Pays to Read Assembly where students get to play Minute to Win it games for cash and other prizes.  All semester the students are earning tickets by reading at home. They bring back a reading calendar, then put a ticket in their class bag.  Tickets are drawn at the assembly, a wheel is spun and a game is played. At the end of each assembly, grand prizes are awarded. Good job to all the students and keep reading!

Today’s dress up was Christmas Socks.  It’s always fun to see what kinds of socks the students and teachers will wear.  Thank you so much for the donations of gently used shoes. An employee from Tabitha’s way came to drop off more barrels today and was so impressed and touched with everything that is being donated.  Thank you so much!
