What a lot of fun we had at Brookside yesterday celebrating our 100 days of school.
January 29, 2018
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.
This is a great group of students this week that have gone above and beyond in praiseworthy acts. Joshua Talbot put all the chairs up without being asked, Cole Levengood is working hard at being polite and following directions, Baylee Sampson helps her neighbors, Caleb Salmond tries to do hard things, Kaelinn Haglund took down all the chairs in the classroom, Madi Fay helped a classmate with math, Derek Huerta has worked hard on his reading, Mckinley Bartholomew
Make sure to come in today and wish our fantastic secretary Mrs. Bills, a happy birthday. She has worked here at Brookside for 11 years and we LOVE her!
