Congratulations to Kathleen Evans for being chosen by her colleagues as Brookside's Teacher of the Year! Many of you have experienced Mrs. Evans classroom and found it to be a place of joyful learning. Students thrive in a literacy enriched environment by one of the our best. She reads aloud and discusses the classics and practices poetry and other forms of writing. The best things about Mrs. Evans in my opinion is her good heart. She loves and cares about every one of her students long after they've gone on to other grades. We are so proud of Mrs. Evans and gladly recognize her for the wonderful teacher she is. If you see her in the hall, be sure to tell her you love her too!

On Friday March 25th, the sixth graders went on a very educational field trip to Clark Planetarium. The students got to explore the museum which had a lot of exhibits that were interactive. They also went to two different shows. Our firat show they got to experience a solar system show in the dome room. Then we got to watxh a 3D movie about what it takes to be an astronaut. The students and teachers had so much fun!!
On March 17, 2016, the fifth grader traveled to Salt Lake City to visit the Natural History Museum. They explored the museum to learn about dinosaurs, the Salt Lake Valley, Landforms and earth changes, and geckos. Thank you to all the parents the who volunteered and braves the bus ride. Everyone had a fun time.
Mrs. Jorgensen is an outstanding passionate teacher with a positive attitude who cares deeply for all of her students and fellow teachers. She is always willing to mentor and take time with new teachers. Becky is quiet, happy, kind, steady and patient. She cares deeply for all her students and stays several hours past contract time to research ways to reach a struggling student and refine her lesson plans. Mrs. Jorgensen makes sure that ALL the needs of her students are met. She created a job in her classroom called ‘The Friend-Shipper.’ The job of the Friend-Shipper is to choose a child they don't normally play with or doesn't seem to have many friends and invite them to participate in an activity. This makes both students feel special, while creating a sense of community in her classroom.”
The sixth grade had the opportunity to go see Springville Junior High school's performance of the musical, "Crazy for You". We had a blast! It was so fun to see the musical, plus a couple kids and myself had siblings who were in the cast! The kids are getting excited for Junior High and this was an excellent opportunity to briefly see parts of the school. Quite a few of our sixth graders are excited for the opportunity to try out for the Junior High Musical next year!!Miss Stapel
The third graders at Brookside worked hard under the direction of Mrs.Bird to put on the program this year. They spent a lot of time learning and practicing songs about the history of our Country. Each student had a special line they worked hard to memorize and say during the program. We had fun learning more about our country as we proudly sang songs about it. Their hard work paid off and they did an awesome job performing!
It is such a fun tradition to have Dad's and Donuts at Brookside! We had a wonderful turn out this year. It was hard to get down the halls with all the parents and grandparents reading to their students. We love having such wonderful parent support!
