The 5th Grade Wax Museum was held on November 14, 2016. These fifth graders were asked to pick a famous American, read a biography, write a speech, memorize it and then present to the school and their parents. The students did an amazing job. For parents, that night, the student performed songs then froze and delivered their speeches dressed up as their famous American. They worked hard and it showed. Great job, fifth graders!
Thank you for talking to your children about the lock down procedures. Fridays drill went smoothly. On Wednesday of this week, our faculty and staff will be trained again by myself and David Gneiting, our district At-Risk specialist, of more items to be aware of as far as safety. We continue to practice and improve procedures so we will all have a peace of mind that children are safe and cared for while at school.
Today our 5th grade shared their Wax Museum with us. Thank you for helping your child put the time in to find a costume. They played the parts so well. There is also the 6:00 parent program tonight if anyone wants to visit. You will not be disappointed!
Our 6th grade has their Egyptian Musuem on Friday from 1:00-2:00. They have also worked so hard on their project. Yet another reason to thank you as parents.
Also, I'd like to thank the teachers and staff that work with all our students. We have an amazing group of dedicated adults that work hard every day.
It's time for another Box Top challenge. While you are buying items for your Thanksgiving dinner, watch for the products that have Box Tops. The Box Tops are an easy way for the PTA to collect money for the school.
This week is our Book Fair. Students can visit before school and after from 8:30-3:30. They will also be going in with their classes.
Next week is a short week with only school on Monday and Tuesday. Our Thanksgiving break begins Wednesday-Friday. Please have a safe and fun break with your families.
It only takes a little to do something BIG! Tiger Pride
This is the second year that the 6th graders have performed Thriller for the school. It is something they really enjoy doing and will remember forever. AWESOME performance 6th grade!!
Mr. Anderson gave an exciting lesson about germs. He showed them what happens when they don't wash their hands well. The students washed their hands once then he put a squirt of Glow Germ on their hands and had them rub it in. They inspected their hands under a light and they could see where they didn't wash well enough. Then of course, they washed a second time after being taught the correct way to wash. A little gross but very informative. I don't think his class will every forget that lesson. Nicely done Mr. Anderson!
A BIG shout out to our PTA for sponsoring our Drug Free week. Every day the students were able to dress up as a way to remember to stay away from things that may harm our body. Just in case you don't know, we have the BEST PTA! There is still time to join.
Just a quick reminder that our Halloween Parade will be at 2:00 out on the grass behind the school.
Parents can line up in the enclosed parent spot starting at 1:45. Take all the pictures you would like and pick up your child at in the classroom after.
Our 6th grade will perform their annual Thriller dance for parents right after the parade and K-5 have gone in. At this time parents can spread out on the grass to have the best view. Please stay off the asphalt as that is where the 6th grade will perform.
Brookside Elementary had an amazing assembly today, we got visted by Utah Opera Symphony. They are part of the POPS (Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools). It was impressive and very engaging for the whole school. They performed by using a game show that the whole school got to participate in. They would ask questions that had to do with music and open it up to the students for the answer first. I didn't see any students who were engaged and happy the whole assembly. We are so grateful they came to perform for us and hope they come back every year.
The fifth graders are working with division and recently we performed some reader's theater's script to learn how to interpret the meaning of remainders. We learned about dropping the remainder when it isn't important, sharing the remainder, and rounding the remainder up.
