Loose Change for Food

The second grade are doing their annual service project, Loose Change for Food.  They will be collecting loose change starting today, May 13 through Friday, May 17.  Why are they doing this?  The second grade social studies core asks them to identify and participate in a local civic activity.  They will be donating they earn to the loocal food bank. Each dollar they earn streches to more than two for the food bank.  For example, if they earn $200 then the food bank can buy $500 worth of food.  They will aslo be practicing math skills:  adding money and graphing.  Last year they earned $655.00 (can we beat that this year?).

Please have your child check through couch cushions, the car, under the bed or do some chores to earn some loose change and bring it in (they accept dollars, too).

The second grade teachers thatn kyou as they teach their students to think of others and provide food for those less fortunate.

The sixth grade orchestra performed for the fifth and sixth graders yesterday, May 7.  These students came every Monday, Wednesday, and every other Friday to learn how to play these instruments.  They have worked hard and they did an amazing job!

Dear Parents,

We have had some events rescheduled for different times. I wanted to make you aware of them. They are as follows:

  • 6th Grade graduation has been changed to May 23rd at 9:30 am. The 6th grade celebration will still be on May 22nd at 2:00, but because of Springville High School’s graduation and other factors the graduation has been rescheduled.

  • The 3rd grade track meet has been rescheduled for Monday, May 13th because of the expected bad weather.

  • Please let me know if you have any questions about these events. Thank you!

Also, our 2nd grade classes are doing a “Loose Change for Food” service project next week, May 13th through the 17th. The 2nd grade core curriculum asks students to identify and participate in a local civic activity. Last year they collected over $655.00 and donated it to the food shelter. If you have any questions, please contact Becky Jorgensen, Dustin Anderson, or Darla Stapel. Thank you!

Have a great day,

Dana Beckert

 

Speech

In Speech we have been working together to end the year positively! During speech sessions students have been asked to think of one thing that they like that day. They get to write that thing on a star that gets placed on the board in the speech room. When we get 250 stars collectively, all of the speech students will get a special prize! 

We love our speech teachers!

Venmo is BrooksidePTA. Please write "yearbook", your student's name, and your student's teacher's name on the memo line. Thank you to our PTA for providing this service for our school and making yearbooks possible.

Here is a message from our PTA President, Karmen Diaz --

We wanted to thank everyone for supporting our Tiger Runathon Fundraiser this year!  We truly have the best parents, students, teachers and staff at Brookside Elementary.  The kids had a great time AND our fundraiser was a great success. We didn't make our goal but we did make $7500.  

That is such a blessing for the PTA and will help fund lots of fun and much needed things for the school next year as well as paying for some of the items approved by the general membership.  We know we could never do any of it without each and every one of you!

THANK YOU! Have a wonderful day,

Dana Beckert
