Opinion Writing in Fifth Grade

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 01/09/2020 - 12:14

Students in Miss Whites class are focusing on opinion writing. They learned the difference between facts and opinions, read an article about unique Oreo flavors, taste tested different flavors of Oreos, and wrote about which flavor was their favorite and why. Yum!

We will be having a boxtop compition from January 15 - January 31.  Things are changing with boxtops.  Mrs. Beckert sent out an email early with a letter addressing the changes.  Also, a flyer was sent home with your students about the changes.  Please help us by scanning your receipts and sending in ALL your boxtops (this is the last year they will be accepting physical boxtops, so go through your cupboards and cut the all out!)

Here is the letter that Mrs. Beckert sent out earlier this week.

Ornaments for Mrs. Miner

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 01/08/2020 - 12:03

For more than 20 years, Mrs. Marge Miner gave the gift of love at Christmastime (and always) to each student at Brookside.  She would spend her personal time, outside of school, making a small Christmas gift to give to every student. Students remember her knitted stockings, candy sleighs, felt Santas, reindeer with a red Tootsie Roll Pop nose, and bells.  One year she gave all the students a Santa hat. The students would all line up and file by Mrs. Miner to get this Christmas gift from her. But it was always more than just a present, Mrs.

Outstanding Employee - Mrs. Lamb

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 01/08/2020 - 11:59

Mrs. Sandra Lamb, one of fabulous technicians was given the Outstand Employee award  this week. Mrs. Lamb works in Skill Building and works with kids every single day. Mrs. Lamb is a valuable part of our staff, helping students and teachers with anything you ask to support us here at school. She does an amazing job and doesn’t complain.  She works so well with students. She took on a group of 6th grade boys that needed a little more supervision last year without complaint. Who knows how many times she’s been in her room with a kid throwing a tantrum.

STEM Project

In fifth grade today, Miss Bird's class was givent he challenge to build the tallest snowman.  The student had about 15 minutes and could use only paper an glue.  The students worked had and in the end, some panicked to finish in time.  In the end, we had two snowmen and four piles of paper.  Some of their strategies, use lots of paper, use lots of glue and stablize it by using paper to support the snowman.  This project was fun with a lot of laughter.
