Art City Elementary school has a tradition to sing holiday songs every year. Students sang their hearts out as well as danced with a Just Dance "Crazy Santa" video. Even teachers were doing the "Crazy Santa". The students were really surprised when, who should walk through the door? Santa! Some may say that Mrs. Muirbrook was just as excited for this special visitor just to see the excitement on the students faces.
Students of the Month at Art City Elementary are students who are recognized for going above and beyond school expectations.
"Stand Strong" Students of the Month demonstrate"Stand Strong" behaviors which are: Safe, Respectful, Responsible.
Monday Message for January 8, 2018
Happy New Year! 2018 is off to a great start here at Brookside and we appreciate your support and help.
We have some great things happening this week:
SEP conferences are Thursday, January 11th. You should have received an invitation to sign up with your student’s teacher. If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you!
1st-3rd grade choir also begins on Thursday, January 11th. Permission slips were sent home last week students. The choir will meet on Thursday mornings in room 19 at 8:00 am. If your student would like to participate in the choir, there are additional permission slips in the office.
There is no school on January 12th for teacher development day and also, no school on January 15th for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Have a great week,
Mrs. Terri Jensen, our school counselor, is very talented. Not everyone knows that she plays the guitar and sings. Ms. Alyson Tobler's class recently got to enjoy Mrs. Jensen's talent. She visited their classroom and taught the students about the guitar and how the strings work together to play music. The students got to play their own instruments and sing Christmas songs.

Coming back from any vacation and starting work again is challenging, but returning to school after Christmas break is tough. Children are trading their holiday bliss…shiny new presents, staying up late, and plodding around the house in warm flannel pajamas to the reality of being back to school. One to two weeks is a long time in the life of most children and some (many!) rules of school are often forgotten over a long break. Some kiddos think that the fun of the vacation will continue while they will be missing it once they are back to school. It’s stressful.
There all kinds of tips to reduce stress:
- List all the stressors in your life…I can write down several – all names of people under the age of ten.
- Remove your stressors whenever possible…if I removed my stressors, some children would be sitting out on the playground.
- Peppermint aromatherapy…”Mrs. Killian, it smells like marker breath in here.
- Calming sounds of rain…that just makes me want to use the restroom.
Last week I found it; the best way to remove stress. It arrived in a small box from Amazon. SNAP! List your stressors, remove your stressors, aromatherapy, calming sounds, my foot. I plopped down in my chair and stared at the bubble wrap in my hands. Slowly a smile spread across my face. Then I squeezed one bubble.
SNAP! SNAP. SNAP. SNAP. SNAP. SNAP.
Way better than peppermint.
SEP Conferences will be held this week, Wednesday, January 10th from 3:30-5:30 and Thursday, January 11th from 3:30-8:30. You should have gotten an email invite through SignUpGenius. This email allows you to visit the website, find your child’s teacher (s), and sign-up for the time that is most convenient to your individual schedule. Parents, if you find a need to change your appointment the day of conferences, please contact the teacher so he/she is aware of the change. Thanks so much!
The PTA has made me aware that they are looking for a few more people who would be willing to help out with the dinner on January 11th. If you would like to get involved please click on the following link:
Please remember there will be no school on Friday, January 12th and Monday, January 15th!

Riverview third graders and sixth graders met Officer Cory Grover after reading and discussing the story “Aero and Officer Mike.” Officer Grover brought his police dog and talked with the students about the training that he and his dog went through together. Officer Grover explained how his police dog is a loyal partner and they work together every day. Students had a great time making connections from reading "Aero and Officer Mike" and meeting Officer Grover and his police dog. Thank you for your service!

Nebo School District will be hosting a series of Parent Awareness Nights. The topics of discussion will include mental health and safety planning with youth. Several community service providers will be present to answer question and help individuals to access services. Hope to see you there.
Once again, in conjunction with this year's school food drive ... we are bringing back our competition leading to the Super Bowl called “Tailgating for Tummies”. We will work to see which class can bring in the most “touchdowns”, and the grade-level with the greatest total will win the Super Bowl Tailgate Celebration.
How to get a touchdown: For every 100 items (representing 100 yards on a football field) a class will earn a "touchdown". Student Council Members will come by each morning to collect the food drive items. Our School Food Drive is: January 8, 2018 - February 2, 2018. Thank you, everyone!!!!
