Mrs. Jorgensen’s and Mr. Andersen’s class play a cooperative song activity game at the beginning of the year. Students have to get out of their comfort zone and get partners they have not had before to win the game.
Nate Thompson scrubbed the desks and tables, Riker Zufelt helped his brother and stayed with him when he was hurt, Ben Smith is helpful in the classroom, Carter Barthalomew always sets a good example for everyone by silently reading, Jonas Benson picked up A LOT of trash from the playground, Charlie Smith helped a kindergartener with their pumpkin, Talia Sroufe makes sure her work is neat, organized and easy to read, Lincoln Tibbs played with someone that was sitting on the buddy bench, and Gunnar Weight also played with someone from the buddy bench.
The fifth graders had a visit from Kimball Arts Center. Heather came to teach the fifth graders about the artist Jimmi Toro. She shared his artwork and interesting facts about him. Then, she visited each of the fifth grade classes to create a Jimmi Toro inspired piece. They stated by drawing a blind contour, then a continuous line self portrait and finally a final copy where they added color and ink. The students had a blast!

This week the students are being treated to a surprise. Their teachers are serving lunch in the lunch room and having a blast doing it. We love our regular lunch workers and appreciate all their hard work all year long!.This week is National School Lunch Week.
Great job Brookside students on completing another successful No Screen Week sponsored by the PTA. Our classroom pizza party winner for returning the most no screen flyers is Mrs. Stapel's 2nd grade classroom. The 2 winners of the two grand prize's are: Haylee Marian and Korver Esplin.
We want to thank everyone who participated and want to encourage you to think about spending as much time doing healthy activities as you would in front of a screen.
We have a great group of students that were showing tiger pride and working hard at doing praiseworthy things this week.
