Veteran's Day

Attributions: 

We had the privilege of honoring our Veteran’s yesterday in an assembly.  Mrs. Bradford invited a very special Veteran, her dad, and others to talk with the students about what a Veteran is and how we honor them.  The students honored these Veterans and members of their own families by singing a few patriotic songs and holding up pictures of these family members. We want to thank all the Veteran’s for their service.

Our teacher this Tuesday is Mrs. Christina Broussard.  Mrs. B is a valuable part of our team here at Brookside.  In her first three years, she taught three different grades, finally settling in at Kindergarten. We love Mrs. B!

Who is your favorite teacher?  Why? Mrs. B said, “My Mom, she taught me everything I needed to be prepared for life and backed up everything my teachers taught me in school. The teachings of my Mom showed me how to be not just me, but the very best me!”

If given $1000 - what would you buy? “Hands on science experiment tools for my classroom and glitter!”

What song would you sing at Karaoke night? A whole new world- Aladdin

Who or what inspires you? “Creativeness and thoughtfulness inspires me”

Share a memory or two of school: Mrs. B answered, “I remember being able to read the huge word on the board and got a bookmark for it. The word was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

Mrs. B’s favorite thing to teach every year is Manners and The first steps in reading.

What is the best thing about your job? “The smiling faces that look back at me.”

November 11, 2019

Dear Parents,

Happy Monday to you all! I hope you had a great weekend and that you have had the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful weather we are having.

It has been a wonderful Veteran’s Day at Brookside Elementary. Our Veteran’s Day Assembly is one of my favorites. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about the sacrifices that are made for freedom and for students to show their appreciation to those who have made the sacrifices. It was a great experience.

This week is also our Fall Choir Concert. It will be on Thursday, November 14th, at 4:00 pm in the auditorium. Students need to wear their Brookside t-shirts to the concert. Also, they will have practices that day before and after school. Thank you to those who are in the choir and to Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Gallagher for making this experience possible.

Have a great evening!

Dana Beckert, Brookside Elementary

Crystal Apple - Mrs. LeAnn Andrews

Every year, the teacher at Brookside choose one deserving teacher for the Crystal Apple Award. This award is given to a teacher who loves and cares about their students, works hard, is a team player and a faculty member and friend. This year’s award goes to Mrs. LeAnn Andrews.

A former teammate of Mrs. Andrews said, “LeAnn Andrews has taught hundreds of students over the past 30 years and I wouldn't be surprised if every one of them thought they were her favorite. Perhaps her greatest strength is her steadiness. She patiently works with all students be they shy, stubborn, withdrawn, or shall we say, feisty. Whether students enter her classroom as high achievers or with struggling scores she will find a way to gently guide them towards greater success.”

Another colleague said, “Mrs. Andrews always works to make learning fun. She approaches all the subjects with equal enthusiasm. She uses projects to help reinforce learning concepts. She is SUPER supportive of other teachers. She will share anything and everything to help others succeed. Mrs. Andrews is always positive. She is firm, fair, and kind. Everything any parent, or associate, would want in a teacher.”

Congratulations, Mrs. Andrews. We love having you here at Brookside!
