I thought I would send out the Monday Message a little early this week so that you could make the necessary arrangements for the early out on Monday. Here are just a few reminders:
Monday, March 5th, will be a half day. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon. AM Kindergarten students will be dismissed at the regular time, 11:15. There will be no PM Kindergarten.
Tami Evans has decided to open the spring choir to 3rd graders. So the choir which will begin rehearsals on March 8th will now be for 3-6 grade students. Registration forms are in the office for any student who would like to participate.
Dads and Doughnuts will be on March 9th at 8:00. If Dad can’t make it, any loved one can attend with your student.
The PTA is extending the time for you to be able to purchase yearbooks at the reduced price of $13.00. After March 9th, the price for a yearbook will be $15.00.
Thank you for your support! Please watch for the March Newsletter which will be sent out on Monday.
In P.E. we did our own version of the Winter Olympics. The first game we did was the bobsled. Students were in groups of three and each sat on their own scooter. They would link themselves together with their legs. Students used their arms to push themselves around a course in the gym as fast as they could. Other students would cheer on and encourage their classmates. It was a lot of fun to participate and work together with classmates in this Olympic game!

On behalf of Mayor Rick Child and the Springville City Council I would like to congratulate the PTSA students; Deagan Rosenlof, Brynn Jones, Molly Hunter, , Madoc Jones, Gavin Jones are students at Brookside Elementary. Levi Palmer and Kevin Pau Rojas attend other schools. All were nominated for a Springville Mayor’s Recognition Award. The students were nominated by several community members and teachers. We would like to thank them for making a positive impact on our community, congratulations!
These students have been involved with several service projects like; Jaker's Jack-O-Lantern. They picked pumpkins for several hours. For their hard work, Jake Harward gave each student a pumpkin. These students then gave their pumpkins to a peer, friends or family members who may have been experiencing bullying, medical issues, financial hardships and more. Also, these students volunteered at the Farmer's Market with the Children's Play Area with Minute To Win It Games and they attended the Student Leadership Committee for the "Souper Bowl Of Caring."
Brookside students were treated to a visit from Ballet West, a Salt Lake City based ballet company. They picked some students to come up on stage and taught them some ballet steps and demonstarted ballet technique. They also performed selections from The Nutcracker in full costume. We would like to thank them for coming, they are truely amazing professionals in their art.
