The fifth graders received a visit from Discovery Gateway. The Reaction Time assembly taught the students about physical and chemical changes. Our presenter, Skye, showed the kids what would happen if they set certain chemicals on fire, different kids of acid and bases in cabbage juice, what goes on inside Mrs. Rudd's stomach, and introduced the students to Freddy. The student's also participated in a lab where they were able to mix solids and liquids to test the chemical and physical reactions.
Tigers of the Month for January were 1st Grade: Cash Bradley, Emma Beckstrom, Savannah Boyd and Jazmin Menjivar. 2nd Grade: Laura Ledford, Finleigh Lyman, Jeremy Franco, Lexie Antonino, Kamry Clement and Ethan Dover. 3rd Grade: Kaden Harris, Clara Mohlman, Aubrie Tranchell and Luke Killpack. 4th Grade: Sarah Mitchell, Connor Harding, Brooks Thorpe and Quinn Levengood. 5th Grade: Halle Fales, Ella Stewart and Jocelyn Linan. 6th Grade: Ammon Key, Nicole Fernandez, Mekenzie Rogerson and Brenna Carlton.

Second grade students have gained an understanding of gravity by reading books, watched video and perfomed experiments that allow them observe falling objects and identify things that prevent them from reaching the ground. They have communicated these observations that similar objects of varying masses fall at the same rate through class discussions and journal entries.
Students perfomed an experiment in which they dropped different objects from the same height at the same time to gain a deeper understanding of gravity.
Ronald McDonald has been bringing joy to children for decades and is actively involved in teaching valuable lessons to kids through a variety of programs and interactive skits. Ronald McDonald visited students at Brookside to share four important messages. They are :
- Books are our friends because they help us to learn.
- Reading is more fun when you read with excitement!
- The library is a great place to find all kinds of books.
- We should always take care of books
