In February the Water Van from Loveland Living Aquarium visited Art City Elementary School sixth grade classes.  They talked about ecosystems and what happens when a nonindiginous species invades an area and what happens to the environment (the invader eats all of the food and there is no food left for the fish or animals that are native to the area).   They also had the opportunity to meet a very large lizard, a hedgehog and a snake.

We do Friday Fun Day in 5th grade for the students who get their homework done. Since there are three 5th grade classes it works perfectly. If you get your homework done you get to play capture the flag. If you do not get your homework done you go to one of the 5th grade classrooms to read or do math. It helps the students begin with the end in mind and want to get their homework done so they can have a chance to have extra fun.

Brookside Elementary Has Earned The U.S. Energy Star Award

Brookside Elementary News - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 3:04pm
Attributions: Mrs. Dana Beckert

Brookside Elementary uses 35% less energy and generates 35% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar buildings across the nation!


  • For more than 20 years, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program has identified the most energy-efficient products, buildings, plants, and new homes – all based on the latest government-backed standards.
  • The program was created in 1992 to help businesses and individuals save energy and fight climate change. Today, every ENERGY STAR label is verified by a rigorous third-party certification process.

What does ENERGY STAR certification signify?

  • ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy performance and many other metrics, including occupancy, hours of operation, and more.
  • ENERGY STAR is the only environmental program in the United States that certifies energy efficiency based on actual, verified energy performance and objective measures of performance, providing a guarantee of savings.
  • ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use an average 35 percent less energy, cause an average 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers, and they also meet strict requirements regarding occupant comfort.
  • ENERGY STAR is recognized by more than 85 percent of the American public and tied with the Good Housekeeping® seal as the most influential consumer emblem in the nation.

What are the benefits of ENERGY STAR certification?

  • Lower operating costs: ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use, on average, 35 percent less energy than similar buildings nationwide. The cost savings can be substantial. For example, ENERGY STAR certified office buildings cost $0.50 less per square foot to operate than their peers. In 2015, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants saved $1.7 billion, or an average of more than $250,000 per building.
  • Connect with your community: Americans are big believers in doing the right thing, and they expect the same of the professionals in their communities. More than 65 percent of adults like to do business with environmentally responsible companies3. More than 80 percent of workers are attracted by an employer with an environmental reputation. Roughly half of workers said they would forgo higher pay or a promotion to work for an organization with a good reputation4.
  • Higher occupancy rates: ENERGY STAR certified buildings have higher occupancy rates when compared to similar buildings. A 2008 study conducted by the University of San Diego's Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate showed that ENERGY STAR certification gave a roughly 4 percent boost to occupancy rates.2
  • Increased asset value: Maintaining high energy performance over time increases the likelihood of higher building valuation due to higher net operating income from energy cost savings. Experienced managers of large portfolios of ENERGY STAR certified buildings interviewed for one study1 confirm that ENERGY STAR helps increase building value. ENERGY STAR certified buildings generate more income when compared to similar buildings.2
  • Lease to federal tenants: If you want to lease your space to a federal tenant, your buildings must be ENERGY STAR certified. (Executive Order 13514 mandates that Federal Agencies may only lease space in ENERGY STAR certified buildings.)
    • Hedge against future mandates: Numerous cities and states have passed legislation containing energy efficiency mandates for commercial new construction projects and existing buildings. The vast majority of them incorporate ENERGY STAR and Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR. The trend is growing every year as more cities and states seek ways to reduce costs and emissions. By earning the ENERGY STAR now, you’re in a better position to respond to any future laws or mandates. See the list of legislation and campaigns leveraging ENERGY STAR.
    • Protect the environment: A building isn’t environmentally friendly unless it’s energy efficient. ENERGY STAR is the government-backed program for certifying energy-efficient buildings. That’s why green building rating systems across the nation include ENERGY STAR. Whether you’re pursuing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Green Globes, or the U.S. Guiding Principles for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings, ENERGY STAR certification will ensure your building uses less energy and leaves a smaller carbon footprint.

On Tuesday, March 13, Springville High hosted the first tri-meet of the season against both Provo and Wasatch.   Springville has not had a home meet for two years, so it was exciting for the athletes to finally compete on their home track.

Springville’s girls team had a first place finish by Emalee Osborn (100m hurdles), Heidi Sumsion (400m), and Marlynne Deede (Javelin and Shot Put).

The Red Devil boys track team had a first place finish by Michael Eifert (3200m), Sean Holloway (200m), Springville's 4x100 relay, Chase Clements (Javelin), and Chris Ohman (High Jump).

Of course there were many other great performances from this first meet; Red Devil track and field members are excited for the start of the season.
