Dear Parents,

It has been a wonderful beginning to the new school year. Thank you to those who were able to attend the Brookside’s Open House on Monday afternoon. There is always so much excitement in the air as teachers and students meet each other and relationships are formed.

On the first day of school, the student body came together for an opening assembly. We recognized students and teachers who were new to Brookside. We also introduced this year’s theme, “BEE a Leader”. Students will learn about a specific leadership skill each month. We will recognize those students who put the skills into practice and they lead out at school.

Planning time, specialty classes also began this week. We welcome two new specialty teachers so our staff:

  • P.E. – Heather Child (new)

  • Library – Trisha Olsen (new)

  • Fine Arts – Jill Tolley

  • Computers – Becky Williamson

This week we welcome our kindergarteners to school on the 29th! We are excited to have them and I look forward to getting to know them. Our kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Gallagher and Mrs. Broussard, are ready for a great year!

Thank you!

For the Strength of the Pack

Barnett Elementary News - Tue, 08/29/2017 - 10:51am

Along with brag notes this year students can also earn points for their Bulldog Pack! Last week every student spun the Pack Picking Wheel and was put into either the Blue, Red, Yellow, or Green Pack so each pack is made up of different teachers, different staff members, and students from all different grade levels. When a student is making good choices and shining as a leader in our school they may be awarded a point for their pack. The pack with the most points at the end of the term earns a Pack Dance Party. The packs spent some time together Friday afternoon creating a pack name and cheer, and getting to know each other through some team building activities.

Hello, Brockbank Families!

What a great beginning to the BEST year ever!  We had a great first week and we are ready for many more!  Thanks for having your child ready each day, on time, and with good attitudes!  Brockbank is such a wonderful place to be!

We want to welcome all of our new kindergarten students to school tomorrow!  We look so forward to each of them coming to Brockbank!  It will be a very special day!

Marquee:  We are thrilled with our new marquee and appreciate your support in having your child bring in Box Tops!  We had a special ribbon cutting ceremony on the first day of school and it was fun to have all of our students be a part of that celebration!  (We are still working out the bugs in learning how to work the marquee, and we plan to have the lights dim at nighttime.  Thanks so much for your patience!) Please continue to send your Box Tops, as you can see the wonderful things they can provide for our school!  At the end of last year, your child was given a sheet of paper to fill up with Box Tops.  Please send those sheets back to school!  We will start collecting them again!  Thanks for your support!

T-Shirts:  If you would like to order your child a Bronco T-shirt, we will take orders until Friday.

Picture Day;  Picture Day will be Thursday, Sept. 7th, all day long.  Please watch for picture packets to come home! 

Pop Into Reading Celebration: We are hoping that your child read all summer long and kept track of his/her reading on the summer POP INTO READING Challenge!  Help your child remember to bring in his/her reading calendar from summer and turn it into the office.  We are planning our party on Sept. 8th!

As you know, we have a new theme and mission statement this year!  We hope you were able to get our parent letter at the Open House, along with the school magnet.  If you didn’t, please come and get them in the office.   The letter explains some safety policies that we want to make sure you know about.  PLEASE go over them with your child.  We want your child to be safe coming and leaving school.

We also invite you to LIKE us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram, and Twitter, as well as our own Brockbank website!  Follow us on Instagram--#Brockbankbest, #Lookatbrockbank, and #BrockbankBFF

Thanks for your support and for sending us the BEST students ever!

Sierra Bonita 4th graders had the opportunity to participate in "ABC 4 Weatherbug" with meteorologist, Dan Pope, sponsored by Arbys. This broadcast was done on LIVE TV.  I will post the Broadcast once ABC 4 Utah posts it on their website.

What a fun opportunity for these students to see behind the scenes and maybe one day, they can be a meteorologist just like Dan Pope.  Students also sang the Sierra Bonita Song, some students were interviewed by the meteorologist, Dan Pope.

A HUGE Thank you to Arbys and ABC 4 Utah Weatherbug for allowing our students with this opportunity. A Thank you, Terena Anderson, for putting this all togther! 

Dan Pope, was so incredible, he took time out of his busy schedule to take pictures with those who wanted them.

Meet Our New Teachers: Mrs. Cornaby Kindergarten

Mt Loafer Elementary News - Mon, 08/28/2017 - 2:11pm

My name is Nancy Cornaby and I'm excited to be teaching at Mt. Loafer.  I went to Utah State University and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in education.  This is my 13th year teaching and I love it.  I have taught kindergarten, first and second grades.  I grew up here in Salem and still live here with my family.  James and I have four children – 8 year old Nikale, 6 year old Jake, 5 year old Tate, and our Lucy is 2 months.  They make life exciting!  I had horses growing up so I enjoy riding and I’ve competed in a number of rodeos and horse shows.  I still love riding in the mountains gathering cattle with my family.  I also enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family.
