Food Chains Exploring

Mrs. Gonzalez

Mrs. Gonzalez 3rd grade is learning about food chains, with the questions: what does it eat? What is it eaten by? After learning about plants and different animal groups, the class is exploring how plants, and different animals interact. 

Brookside had an exciting visitor

Mrs. Hobbs

Brookside was lucky to have Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company come perform April 25th. There was not a time that the students were not actively engaged. They had volunteers go up and dance with them on a couple of occasions. They also split the students in half and had them compete against each other. It was so much fun for the students. Many students went back to their classrooms and tried to do the exact same moves. Thank you so much for coming and putting on a show for our school.

Brookside Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Evans

Alicia Rudd

Congratulations to Kathleen Evans for being chosen by her colleagues as Brookside's Teacher of the Year! Many of you have experienced Mrs. Evans classroom and found it to be a place of joyful learning. Students thrive in a literacy enriched environment by one of the our best. She reads aloud and discusses the classics and practices poetry and other forms of writing. The best things about Mrs. Evans in my opinion is her good heart. She loves and cares about every one of her students long after they've gone on to other grades. We are so proud of Mrs. Evans and gladly recognize her for the wonderful teacher she is. If you see her in the hall, be sure to tell her you love her too!

Mrs. Jorgensen received the PEAK award from Nebo school district for showing Positive Energy and Kindness.

Ms. Sahlin

Mrs. Jorgensen is an outstanding passionate teacher with a positive attitude who cares deeply for all of her students and fellow teachers. She is always willing to mentor and take time with new teachers. Becky is quiet, happy, kind, steady and patient. She cares deeply for all her students and stays several hours past contract time to research ways to reach a struggling student and refine her lesson plans. Mrs. Jorgensen makes sure that ALL the needs of her students are met. She created a job in her classroom called ‘The Friend-Shipper.’ The job of the Friend-Shipper is to choose a child they don't normally play with or doesn't seem to have many friends and invite them to participate in an activity. This makes both students feel special, while creating a sense of community in her classroom.”
