The fifth graders have been working hard researching and learning about a state. Students were assigned a state several weeks ago and have been hard at working hard researching all about their states. In class, they have put together a slide show to teach about the state and then they have created a float to represent their state. These students did an amazing job creating their floats to represent their state. Great job, Fifth Graders!
These floats are on display this week in the fifth grade hallway.
Last week, 3rd graders from Brookside, ventured on a walking field trip to the Springville Art Museum. They walked through the museum and learned about some of the paintings. Students were given a piece of paper and pencil, and sketched/copied from paintings that evoked various feelings or connections. It was educational and a lot of fun.
Thanks to our volunteer parent helpers! We appreciate you!!
We are so excited to announce that our Teacher of the Year for the 2021-2022 school year goes to Mrs. BrynLee Pickering. Mrs. Pickering is an amazing teacher. She works hard everyday to help her students and grow. You can tell that she loves and cares for each of her students and everyone at Brookside.
Mrs. Pickering has been teaching at Brookside for six years. She has taught on year in fourth grade and five years in first grade. She has mentored a lot of teachers coming onto the first grade team and always has good advise for anyone looking for some help.
This past week our PTA hosted Teacher Appreciation week. The theme was "Teachers plant seeds that grow forever." It was an amazing week filled with treats and gifts that spoiled the staff at Brookside. We were greeted Monday morning to sidewalk chalk in front of the school as we walked up to the building.
We are so happy to celebrate these students who went above and beyond this week to show their Tiger Pride. Janae Papa and JT Papa stopped to help another student, after school, to fix their bike chain. Jack Niu helped another student to finish his work. Anika Thompson helped Mrs. Petersen, her student teacher stay on schedule throughout the day.
Brookside's Outstanding Employee of the Year is Mrs. Sandra Lamb. This award is very well deserved. Mrs. Lamb works in our Reset Room. This is where students can go to reset. If they are struggling, having a hard day or need to calm down, they are sent to Mrs. Lamb who helps them reset and return to the classroom. Mrs.
