The Fifth Graders earned their way to the Provo Rec Center. The fifth graders had to work hard, complete their assignments, and show respect to others to attend this field trip. And, it was worth it. They played basketball, racquetball, pickle ball, and volley ball. They also rock climbed. Then, in the afternoon, they got to go swimming, slide, and jump off rocks. The students, parents and teachers had a blast!

The fifth graders in Miss Bird's class are learning about static electricity. They got to try several experiments with balloons. They rubbed the balloons on their hair, they raised little men off their desks, they made paper dance, stuck balloons to walls and much more
Students raiser over $10, 000 during the annual Brookside Read-A-Thon Fundraiser. Students were asked to read as much as they could for an entire week. Friends, family & neighbors made very generous donations based on the number of minutes read.
As an insentive to read and bring in donations Mrs. Rudd, the school principal, told student she would face her fear of holding a very large snake if the goal was met. Students exceeded everyone's expectaions and Mrs. Rudd kept her word. During an assembly to recognize top readers and earners, Mrs. Rudd held a very large python.
During this same assembly many students earned prizes (donated my community members) such as pogo sticks, movies, footballs, Studio C appareal. One lucky student even won a WiiU. Top reader's from each grade were rewarded with a special lunch at Magleby's with Mrs. Rudd.
Other special events that happened during the assembly:
- Several teachers were turned into toilet paper mummies. They then danced to YMCA in front of the entire school.
- Student council members were turned into ice cream sundaes.
- Two students from each grade "Pop for Dollars." Students popped balloons filled with cash.
The fundraiseer was a great success!
Second graders have been studying matter. They perfomed many experiments to investigate all the properties of matter. To demonstrate how matter can change states, students turned heavy whipping cream into butter. To investigate how heat can be used to change matter students popped popcorn using air, microwaves and a hot surface. Students learned matter can can state, but can never be destroyed.
