February is off to a great start! Here are just a few reminders:
You should have received and email from the district regarding a stakeholders survey. This is an opportunity for stakeholders, namely parents, students, and other employees to give input concerning Nebo schools. I invite you to give your feedback about Brookside teachers and administrators. We value and welcome your feedback. Thank you!

These students are awesome and did praiseworthy acts this week.
In the library this week we had a fun lesson on experimenting with different kinds of books. By sitting at a table with a group of 3-4 students, each student had a few minutes to sample each book at the table as if at a restaurant sampling different courses of a meal. There was a video of a fireplace going, soft music playing and Mrs. Olsen teaching about different kinds of books and what makes them appealing and enjoyable. The students loved the fun way the librarian brought the books to life for them for a day.
What a lot of fun we had at Brookside yesterday celebrating our 100 days of school.

At this time of year, we see an increase in student absences. As a school, we support your decision concerning sending your child to school or not. If your child is sick and contagious, we would encourage you to keep him/her home to accelerate the healing process and get better.
We have a great group of students this week who did a lot of praiserworthy acts.
This week we are excited about having the district dance specialist, Melanie Fillmore, here to work with our teachers and students. This will be our third experience this year working with her and we are excited to have her back. Previously, she has worked with 3rd-6th graders and this experience will include 1st and 2nd grades. She will be training and teaching our teachers ways to integrate arts instruction, specifically dance, into other content areas as well as helping teachers know how to teach the specific Utah core fine arts curriculum.
