With the help of many hands, we have revamped and redcorated two of the portables into an expanded game room for E-Time. A big thank you to Mrs. Katie Garner, a Diamond Fork mom and professional artist for her "Game Time" mural! Another big thank you to our awesome Diamond Fork counselors who man the game room! Students can participate in board games, card games, basketball shoot, ping pong, air hockey, Fooz ball, and more.
Students can join the Diamond Fork Chime CHoir as an afternoon club. Students get a snack and then get to learn from the best! Ms. Scott is a member of the Bells on Temple Square Bell Choir. No experience, no music reading needed! See Ms. Scott in Room 1515 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Davis, a Covered Bridge resident and Diamond Fork mom, got our thank you sign right to the firefighters! Thank you, Mrs. Davis.

Monday, September 17, Barnett leaders gathered together in unity as we celebrated Constitution Day as a school. Our hosts of the assembly were members of the Student Lighthouse. Barnett Elementary joined together in singing “You’re a Grand Ole’ Flag”. Three sixth grade students, one from each class, gave amazing speeches on what Constitution day meant to them. Barnett Leaders were inspired as they thought about the freedoms we have and how grateful we are to live in such an amazing country. The students then sang, “The National Anthem”. What a wonderful day to be a Barnett Bulldog!
Our students at Spanish Oaks took time this week to show their appreciation for the brave men and women who are fighting the Pole Creek and Bald Mountain Fires. Thank you, Adalee Campbell (5th grade), for spear-heading this wonderful service activity ... You are a "Go Getter" at Spanish Oaks!

This week, many classes from Orchard Hills participated in writing letters and drawing pictures for our brave firefighters who work so hard to keep our community safe. We are so grateful for them!
Students took a minute in class to share all the fun things they have learned or observed about Mr. Richins over the past month. Each class chose a saying or two among the many that were discussed.
We appreciate all that Mr. Richins does to make our school fun, safe, and a great place to be!
We are so happy that East Meadows has their Pride Squad up and running.
This is all of our 6th grade students. They are responsible for starting our assemblies, making our daily announcements, showing new students around our school and various other tasks that may be asked of them. We are so proud of them and the great example they are to other students!

Where You Look, Is Where You Go ... Aim High! Just like when you are riding a bike … where you look, that’s where you’ll go. If you are riding down the road and you focus on the tree, you will run into the tree! Instead focus on the place you want the bike to go to have a nice bike ride. Where you look, that’s where you go; where you focus your attention is where you will end up! Great job, students ... setting goals and going after them! At Spanish Oaks we choose every day to: Be Kind, Show Respect, Work Hard ... and Aim HIGH!
Only the 2nd day of school and the Landmark Dragons are busier than ever planting and harvesting their gardens. Poinsettias are planted and rulers are in place to track their growth; enabling the students to monitor their height and lateral branching. An important step now is monitoring insect control. Placing yellow sticky cards catches small insects, revealing the species of insects and quantity of infestation.
I grew up in Bountiful, Utah and graduated from Bountiful High School. I have two older sisters who are both married, and have 2 nephews and 1 niece that I love more than anything. I have a younger brother and a younger sister as well. I played sports growing up along with my older sisters, and played softball at UVU for two years. I love to play and watch sports, watch movies, be outside, play with my niece and nephews, read, go to Disneyland, and all things Harry Potter. Chocolate ice cream and M&M's are my two favorite foods. I'm a super picky eater and refuse to eat hamburger meat and bananas, among many other things. I have been married to my husband Taylor for a little over two years. We went to high school together but never actually met until the end of our senior year. We got married in August of 2016 in Salt Lake City. He is a cancer survivor and a Pre-Pharmacy major at UVU. I hope one day to travel the world with my husband and experience new things that I can come back and tell my students about! If you know if this teacher is, post her name on Brookside's Facebook page! Tiger Pride#
