Wednesday, December 18th – “Warm the Soles”  -- Wear your favorite Christmas socks! And bring in any slightly worn, old shoes to donate to a local thrift shop. Again, bring these to the office.

Thursday, December 19th – “Toys for Tots” -- Bring gently used toys to donate to local charities and local thrift shops! Drop these off at the office! Dress from head to toe in red or green!

Friday, December 20th – Christmas Spirit! -- Christmas dress up day! Come as an elf or maybe Rudolph. Wear your favorite Christmas pajamas. Let’s celebrate this last day before Christmas break!

Please note that Friday is a full day. Students will be in school until 3:15 pm.

"Can" You Fill Santa's Hat

It is spirit and service week here at Brookside Elementary.  Each day we will have a theme for our dress up and donations to go along with it.  Today was “CAN you fill Santa’s Hat.” We asked students to fill a santa hat with canned goods and drop them up in front of the office, then they could wear their Santa hat the rest of the day.  It was fun to see all the hats and to watch our bins get full. All the donations will be sent to Tabitha’s Way to help those in need.

Geology in Fourth Grade

We have started our geology unit. We have learned about weathering, erosion, and soil.  We learned about mineral being the building blocks of rocks. This day we made our own rocks. Just like the rock granite is a mixture of the minerals: mica, feldspar, and quartz, our rocks all contained three or four unique minerals. We had some pretty great names for our rock too.

Who was your favorite teacher?  Why? Ms. Moon because she made us Green Eggs and Ham in first grade.

Who or what inspires you? People who do hard things inspire me. Positive people with great attitudes inspire me. People who don't give up inspire me.

Share a Memory of school: I remember silent reading in the loft. It was this cool area like the top bunk bed where you could go up a ladder and read with pillows and stuff if you earned the privilege. Wish I could have one in my own classroom! So cool!

What is your favorite thing to teach every year? I love teaching them to have a great attitude and to do hard things. I also love guided reading (Genre Activities)!

What is the best thing about your job? I love being around the incredible kids and seeing them keep working even when they are in THE PIT. I love watching them serve and love one another. I love seeing the light in their eyes when they finally get a concept we have been working on for a while.

The 6th graders got to be "set decorators" and help set the scene for Christmas in our school!  They helped to design a gingerbread house, candy canes and "street signs" to help make our halls festive.  The 3rd and 4th graders made candy cane ornaments for the tree and everyone in the school will make a gingerbread man for the halls!  Merry Christmas!
