Brookside Elementary Had A GAINS District Dance Specialist Visit Last Week

6th grade teachers, Mrs. Wirfs and Mr. Craig, show up to the GAINS Dance training with their headbands donned, ready to go! Tuf

"Brookside Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Brookside will be working with Dance Integration this school year.  3rd grade students used dance and movement to represent the characteristics of all LIVING THINGS.  4th grade students used white scarves to represent water droplets and moved their way through the different parts of the WATER CYCLE.5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students used mirroring and flocking movements to emphasize the important qualities of RESPECT, COOPERATION, and TEAM WORK.

The Special Needs unit danced as well, using props such as scarves and giant elastic bands to enhance their dance ideas.

Dance is a great way to make learning fun and to help students remember concepts more deeply."

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce our box top week has started! Please collect box tops and send them with your students. The PTA is sponsoring a competition this week – the class that brings in the most box tops will receive a reward. The box tops program is a great way for the PTA to earn extra money that will directly affect our students. 

Also, the PTA has extra school t-shirts. If you would like a school shirt please contact our PTA president, Rachel Orme, or talk to the secretaries in the office. Each Friday is spirit day and it is fun to see everyone in their Brookside t-shirt.

6th grade orchestra started this week but it is NOT too late to join. If your 6th grader would like to participate, come into the school office and sign up. Please feel free to come to orchestra on Monday morning at 8:00 in room 19. If you don’t know what instrument you want to play, you can try some out and decide. 

Looking forward, next week is no screen week. During this week, students are encouraged to decrease their screen time and increase other fun and creative activities in their free time. There will be more information coming next Monday!
