Book Talk Tuesday

Submitted by alicia.rudd on Mon, 09/14/2015 - 23:49
Hey Brookside Bookworms! If you love books and you love to talk about them as much as I do then I challenge you to read a book from my all new Principal's Library in my office. Starting next week, September 21st to be exact. Before school, students can come to my back door which is across from Mrs. Bird's class in the 3rd grade hall. But be prepared and forewarned....if you check out a book from me I expect you to write up a Book Talk that I can hang on my office wall and put your Talk here on Tuesdays. Yeah!! The book I'm reading this week is: Circus Mirandus Psst...this book is not even in our school library yet so be the first to read it (besides me, of course) If you like magic, fantasy, adventure, friendships, and love of family then this is a book you'll enjoy. My favorite quote in chapter 16 is by grandpa to Micah, "just be yourself and that's more than enough. " I'll see you next Monday from 8:30-8:55. Mrs. Rudd

It's hip to clip! That's right! By clipping and collecting Box Tops for Education you can earn money for the school by buying products with the symbol on them. Simply clip and turn in to your child's teacher. PTA will gather them all up on Friday. The class with the most will earn a special prize.

Submitted by amber.hobbs on Fri, 09/11/2015 - 08:21

Brookside 2nd graders have been reading stories about Henry and Mudge.  Henry is a little boy and Mudge is his dog.  On Tuesday, September 8th our  2nd Graders had a very special visitor.  It wasn't Mudge, but it was a four legged friend.  Dr. Stapel brought his poodle to school.  Her name is Kista Noelle Stapel.  She is a very cute and talented dog.  She came to show off her many tricks.  Kista had a lot of fun as she showed off all of the things she can do.

The fifth graders were learning about the thirteen original colonies in social studies.  Students were asked to research a colony and then, together, as groups of two or three, they created a colony balloon and presented their findings to the class. They had so much fun and they turned out great!

Visiting Mrs. Broussard's class

Submitted by alicia.rudd on Fri, 09/04/2015 - 20:26
What a fun day to drop in on Mrs. Broussard. She was teaching students how they can recognize how others make them feel. But even better she taught them how to make themselves feel better when they get their feelings hurt. The students were so excited about the experiments and so engaged in the book and activity.

Classroom Drop-Ins

Submitted by alicia.rudd on Mon, 08/31/2015 - 15:23

I love being a principal! Do you know why? It's because of the children and their wonderful teachers.  I love to drop-in on classes to see what they are doing and to share in their learning.  Today I dropped in on Mrs. Pulley's AM class who were practicing writing the number 2.  Mrs. Gallagher's class was writing in their journals about something they did this weekend.  One boy went camping, another was writing about the lightening storm, a little girl wrote about playing soccer.  In Miss Christensen's class she was reading aloud and working on vocabulary words from the story.  Mrs.
