On Wednesday, Nov. 8th the student council had to opportunity to attend a leadership conference designed just for students like them in leadership positions at their school. The conference was all day long and held at BYU. There were several great talks and the student left feeling inspired and ready to become even better leaders for Brookside. Devon Anderson learned that “No matter how many times you fail, there’s always a way to get back in.” Ammon Anderson liked the quote “It is better to be respected than it is to be popular.” He feels this will help him as he tries to look at the big picture. Brooklyn Pugmire went away thinking of all the ways she can be sure to include everyone in what she is doing. Warrrick Small challenged himself to try to smile and say Hi to as many kids as he can. Liesel Scott felt the quote “The problem isn’t the problem, it is how you deal with the problem” would be great to remember when going through difficult times. Finally Edie Knoebel learned that you should not be afraid to stand up for what is right and stop bullying.  The whole student council is ready for action and to help Brookside become the best it can be!

Veteran's Day at Sage Creek

Sage Creek Elementary News - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 4:33pm

Sage Creek had a delightful Veteran's Day program.  Mr. Bill Wright, mayor-elect of Payson City, came and talked to the children about his life growing up on a military base as well as his career as a police officer and police chief of Payson.  His message was shared with the school as our 5th gr students sang multiple patriotic songs including singing and signing the national anthem.  Jonathan Young from Springville High School played taps for the students following a moment of silence.  It was a touching and moving assembly for all involved.  We especially appreciated our speaker was the grandfather of three of our students - Lizzie, Kathrine, and Daniel Wright.

Ms. Lund's 2nd gr class sure shows school spirit!  They are the class spotlight this week.  It started with 4 girls who helped Ms. Lund pick up some litter when she was on playground duty 2 weeks ago. Ms. Lund says, "We  picked up a few pieces of litter, and then found a big black trash bag on the ground. We filled it up before recess was over.  The next day, the 4 girls picked up litter again, with several more kids helping. They are still picking up bags of litter every day at recess, and are keeping our field litter-free. Now, if I can get them to figure out a better name than The Garbage Club..."  Way to go Ms. Lund's class!

Nobember 13, 2017

Dear Parents,

It is Book Fair week! I always look forward to the Book Fair. Students are so excited to shop for affordable books, fun posters, and other educational products. I love it when students stop me in the hall to show me the book they got at the Book Fair. The Book Fair is open everyday this week from 8:30-3:30 and is located on the stage. It is a perfect time for you to come and do some early Christmas shopping. Thank you to our PTA for helping us bring the Book Fair to Brookside.

Reading to your children is so important as explained in this quote from the Washington Post article, “Why It’s Important to Read Aloud to Your Kids and How to Make It Count”. Amy Joyce wrote, “One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves, and reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them and be empathetic citizens of the world.”

Thank you! Have a great week!

During the week of October 25 - 28 the 90th National FFA convention was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Students from Springville FFA had the opportunity to attend this convention and expo. While in attendance students expanded their knowledge by attending workshops and tours of local businesses. These tours included Jeptha Creed Distillery, Undulata Farm, KyBlueGrass Genetics, Schaffer Hogs and Abbott’s Candy Factory.

On Friday morning Springville FFA members participated in a “Day of Service” in which they filled boxes for a senior food program. Each box weighed 40 pounds and contained items such as canned fruit, vegetables and meat as well as cereal and shelf stable milk. During a two hour shift, students were able to package 588 boxes.

Kameron Talbot, Brooke Larsen, Cailynn Hackworth and Sadie Rasmussen also had the opportunity to represent the State of Utah for the Agricultural Communications Career Development Event. The National FFA Agricultural Communications CDE is a competitive event that tests students’ skills in all areas of the agricultural communication field and evaluates how well they can apply classroom knowledge to real life situations. Participants attend a simulated news conference and use the information gathered to complete individual practicums in writing, electronic media and design. Our team was awarded a silver ranking.
