Principal Beckert's Monday Message December 16, 2019

Submitted by liz.porter on Tue, 12/17/2019 - 09:44

Dear Parents,

We had a great start to our Christmas Spirit Week. The students brought in over 4 barrels of food. Thank you so much for your generosity! Here is just a reminder about the remaining days:

Tuesday, December 17th – “Sweaters for Sweaters” --  Wear your best Ugly Christmas sweater and bring in any nice, gently used sweaters and other clothing to be donated to a local thrift shop. Drop off the articles of clothing in the baskets in the office.

"Can" You Fill Santa's Hat

Submitted by susan.bird on Mon, 12/16/2019 - 14:50

It is spirit and service week here at Brookside Elementary.  Each day we will have a theme for our dress up and donations to go along with it.  Today was “CAN you fill Santa’s Hat.” We asked students to fill a santa hat with canned goods and drop them up in front of the office, then they could wear their Santa hat the rest of the day.  It was fun to see all the hats and to watch our bins get full. All the donations will be sent to Tabitha’s Way to help those in need.

Geology in Fourth Grade

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 12/11/2019 - 14:04

We have started our geology unit. We have learned about weathering, erosion, and soil.  We learned about mineral being the building blocks of rocks. This day we made our own rocks. Just like the rock granite is a mixture of the minerals: mica, feldspar, and quartz, our rocks all contained three or four unique minerals. We had some pretty great names for our rock too.

Deck the Halls of Brookside Elementary

Submitted by susan.bird on Mon, 12/09/2019 - 15:21

The 6th graders got to be "set decorators" and help set the scene for Christmas in our school!  They helped to design a gingerbread house, candy canes and "street signs" to help make our halls festive.  The 3rd and 4th graders made candy cane ornaments for the tree and everyone in the school will make a gingerbread man for the halls!  Merry Christmas!

The fifth graders recently studied division.  In the division unit, we learn about interpreting the remainder.  Every year, we perform a readers theatre about what to do with the remainders.  The students practice and then perform for their class about whether they need to round up, drop it or share it.  The students do an amazing job and have fun learning about remainders.
