Remember that resilience may be the only thing that gets our students through these challenging times.

It is critical that we do all we can to help our students enhance their resilience during these challenging times. This is an opportunity to celebrate the resiliency skills that have been taught in our schools and to give parents guidance on things they can do to build resilience in their children.”

Mrs. Pickering gave her first graders a cool assignment.  They read the story Not a Box by Antoinette Portis. Their assignment was to create something new from a box so that it was “not a box”. They came up with some pretty cool things.

Dear Parents, 

Here are just a couple of reminders as we head into the weekend. Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you to our PTA for organizing this opportunity to thank and show our appreciation for Brookside’s teachers and staff members. We would love to share out all the great things students do to celebrate their teachers on social media. You can share out on instagram -  @brookside.tigers or email Susie Bird (susan.bird@nebo.edu) and she will get it posted. We would love students to share out and connect in this way. I have attached a flyer with the daily themes or you can visit Brookside’s website for the information. Thank you!

We will also be returning student belongings on the 12th and 13th. 

Tuesday, May 12 

8:30 AM-10:30 AM  -- Kindergarten and First Grade

12:30 PM-2:30 PM   -- Second and Third Grade

Wednesday, May 13

8:30 AM-10:30 AM  Fourth and Fifth Grade

12:30 PM-2:30 PM   Sixth Grade

Please remember to enter the bus zone on the West side of the building. We will have teachers and staff members positioned along the bus zone. Please see the May 4th Monday Message for more detailed instructions. We are excited to see everyone! 

Today I came across this saying and it seemed to be very fitting for this time and the situation we find ourselves.

 "Your mind is a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds." (Rita Ghatourey)

This is a difficult time and I hope you are able to find some “silver linings”. Please know how much we appreciate you and the opportunity we have to work as a team for the betterment of our students. 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Brookside Elementary Teacher Appreciation Week May 11th - 15th

Dear Parents,

The PTA would like to honor our teachers and staff members next week, May 11th-15th. This will fit nicely with our activity to give out student belongings and provide an opportunity for students to see their teachers. The original teacher appreciation week was scheduled for the last week in March and things were even crazier then. The PTA did not want this school year to end without letting the teachers and staff members know how much they are appreciated! Here is a Virtual Teacher Appreciation Week flyer from the PTA. I am so grateful for this opportunity to show our staff how much we appreciate them and the work they do to help our students. They are AMAZING and we love them! Thank you to our PTA for providing this opportunity!

Thank you!

Principal Beckert’s Monday Message

Dear Parents,

We are ready to provide a plan for students to come and pick up 

their belongings. We tried to take into consideration all the guidelines and variables involved. 

We have been asked to create a plan that involves students and parents remaining in their cars to help us adhere to the social distancing guidelines. If students walk and come without a parent 

they can still receive their belongings, they will just be encouraged to follow the guidelines.

Here is the schedule for Student Belonging Pick-up:

Tuesday, May 12 

8:30 AM-10:30 AM  -- Kindergarten and First Grade

12:30 PM-2:30 PM   -- Second and Third Grade

Wednesday, May 13

8:30 AM-10:30 AM  Fourth and Fifth Grade

12:30 PM-2:30 PM   Sixth Grade

We will have teachers and staff members positioned along the bus zone on the west side of the building. We ask that cars enter the bus zone and stop to talk with the staff member positioned there. If you have several students in different grades and don't want to come during their designated time, you can notify that staff member when you pull up and they will send someone to gather their belongings from their classrooms. Teachers of the assigned grade levels will be positioned along the bus zone so you can drive up to the teacher and she/he will bring the belongings to the car. 

School will continue until May 22. For this reason, computer devices that have been checked out from the school will not be collected until the week of Memorial Day. I will be communicating the procedure to return devices as we get closer to that time

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Dana Beckert

Brookside Elementary
