Being Prepared for Anything

Throughout the month of November students at Brookside have been learning about things they can do to prevent and prepare for a disaster.

The Brookside PTA partnered with The American Red Cross to promote "Get Ready Utah."  A program designed to educate and prepare students for the many types of disasters Utah could face.

During an assembly on Monday, November 18th students were shown different items they should include in an emergency kit, the damage a house could see during an earthquake and the importance of being prepared for any type of disaster.

Students were surprised when the "Be Ready Utah" Bumblebee showed up.  He awarded "Master's of Disaster" diplomas to all the teachers.  

Students were given "Be Ready Utah" backpacks to help start their own 72 hour kits.  Each pack included a Family Communication Plan, a "Be Red Cross Ready" checklist, a "Be Ready Utah" sticker, a pocket first aid kit and a color changing pencil.

Mrs. Sayers 5th and 6th graders are practicing persuasive writing. For November their assignment was to write a persuasive letter to the principal encouraging the celebration of Veterans Day.

After Mrs. Rudd read the letters the class was given the assignment to follow through and celebrate Veterans Day. They made a purple heart and filled it with hugs and kisses.

 Local veterans were invited and the students presented a recitation of The Lighthouse and presented a card to each veteran. The Veterans shared their experiences with the students and everyone had a great learning experience.

 

 

Working Together

Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Wilber's 5th grade classes are learning how to work together as a team to accomplish a goal. All of the team members had to use their fingers to get the stick from chest level to the ground. They found that if the don't work together, help each other, and concentrate the stick goes up instead of down. The classes are working each week on a character building activity to promote respect of self, others and property.
