We are so excited to have our new principal, Jennifer Grant, at our school. This is her first year as a principal. She has taught second through fourth grade and worked as a district literacy instructional coach and a facilitator. We can’t wait to get to know her and see the amazing things that she will do for Brookside!<
Our fourth graders attended a performance of the Utah Symphony at Maple Mountain High School. We learned about different fairy tales and traveled the world listening to selections from a variety of tales. They started in Europe with selections from Beauty and the Beast. We moved to America and heard selection from Native American fairy tales. Then moved across the ocean and learned the story of 1001 Arabian Nights. Finally, ending back in Europe for the tale of the Nutcracker and some familiar classics.
At the student council conference last week we heard from many amazing speakers. They taught us a lot of great things that we want to bring back here to Brookside. A few of those things were to be kind to others, stand up for people who are being bullied, and to not judge a book by its cover.
