Second Grade is super excited about our Flat Stanley project.  All second graders have sent their own Flat Stanley throughout the world to many different continents and many of our 50 United States.  He is now returning from his travels and is sharing with us about all of his adventures.  Flat Stanley is a pretty lucky guy!

Second Graders at Brookside Elementary have been researching all about animals.  Yesterday they had an Animal Report and Habitat Exhibition in their hall.  Their parents, grandparents, and families were invited to come see.  Also, the entire school was invited to come check out these awesome projects.  Here are just a few photos.

Fifth Grade State Floats

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 04/19/2022 - 10:13

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.

Third Grade Goes to the Art Museum

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 04/19/2022 - 10:05

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!!
