Attributions: Mrs. Jennifer Frahm

Here at Brookside on our tree in the office area are hand ornaments with a gift suggestion for a refugee child. We are doing this with Lifting Hands International which ships donations directly to refugee children in Jordan and Lebanon. The process is simple: Choose a hand off the tree, bring the gift back by December 20 and share the word with friends and family. Needed items are baby wipes, diapers, fleece blankets, boys underwear and girls underwear, socks, pants, and sweaters. You can visit: www.liftinghandsinternational.org for more ideas on how to help. Any additional questions can be answered by Jennifer Frahm 206-353-1064.

Thanks for your support and help with this in advance.

Dear Parents --

It seems like December is in full swing. Here are just a couple of reminders:

  • The 4th-6th grade choir concert will be this Wednesday, December 6th at 4:00 pm.

  • The tree in the school front foyer will be our angel tree this year. We will be collecting items for Lifting Hands International, an organization that collects, sorts and packs humanitarian aid which is shipped from Utah. Needed items will be listed on angel ornaments hung on the tree. If you would like contribute, please take an angel off the tree and bring in the item(s) printed on the ornament. There will be bins in the office for items brought in. The ornaments will be hung on the tree after December 4th and items will need to be returned by December 18th.

  • December 21st will be a half day. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon. There will be no PM kindergarten.

  • Christmas break is December 22nd--January 1st. School will resume on January 2nd.

Thank you!

Have a great week!  Dana Beckert

Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday full of family and good food!

With the holiday season upon us, I just wanted to remind you about the Amazon Smile program where you can sign up and Brookside receives a small portion of your purchase price as cashback for our PTA. The link to sign up is   https://smile.amazon.com/ch/87-0451045   or you can find it on the PTA’s Facebook page at   https://www.facebook.com/springvillebrooksidepta/ . It’s still your same Amazon account but you have to make sure you go to the Amazon Smile page for it to work. Thank you -- every little bit helps!

I also wanted to let you know that starting today during lunch we have asked students to put any uneaten, unopened food items from their school lunch (applesauce, bananas, fruit cups, milk, etc.) on the “sharing table”. If other students would like an extra milk, for example, they are welcome to get one off the sharing table at no additional cost. We are hoping this helps cut down on the food wasted each day at lunch time. Students are also welcome to stop in at the office after school and get any leftover food items to take home.

Thank you and have a great week!

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!

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!
