On March 17, 2016, the fifth grader traveled to Salt Lake City to visit the Natural History Museum. They explored the museum to learn about dinosaurs, the Salt Lake Valley, Landforms and earth changes, and geckos. Thank you to all the parents the who volunteered and braves the bus ride. Everyone had a fun time.
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.”
The sixth grade had the opportunity to go see Springville Junior High school's performance of the musical, "Crazy for You". We had a blast! It was so fun to see the musical, plus a couple kids and myself had siblings who were in the cast! The kids are getting excited for Junior High and this was an excellent opportunity to briefly see parts of the school. Quite a few of our sixth graders are excited for the opportunity to try out for the Junior High Musical next year!!Miss Stapel
The third graders at Brookside worked hard under the direction of Mrs.Bird to put on the program this year. They spent a lot of time learning and practicing songs about the history of our Country. Each student had a special line they worked hard to memorize and say during the program. We had fun learning more about our country as we proudly sang songs about it. Their hard work paid off and they did an awesome job performing!
It is such a fun tradition to have Dad's and Donuts at Brookside! We had a wonderful turn out this year. It was hard to get down the halls with all the parents and grandparents reading to their students. We love having such wonderful parent support!

On February 2nd we learned about Groundhog's Day. The students predicted if the groundhog would see his shadow or not and wrote a paper on it. Then for math we made a picture graph of the predictions. The majority of my students predicted he wouldn't see his shadow and spring would come early. They were right! The groundhog didn't see his shadow, so we hope spring comes early this year.
