We are excited to announce our box top week has started! Please collect box tops and send them with your students. The PTA is sponsoring a competition this week – the class that brings in the most box tops will receive a reward. The box tops program is a great way for the PTA to earn extra money that will directly affect our students.
Also, the PTA has extra school t-shirts. If you would like a school shirt please contact our PTA president, Rachel Orme, or talk to the secretaries in the office. Each Friday is spirit day and it is fun to see everyone in their Brookside t-shirt.
6th grade orchestra started this week but it is NOT too late to join. If your 6th grader would like to participate, come into the school office and sign up. Please feel free to come to orchestra on Monday morning at 8:00 in room 19. If you don’t know what instrument you want to play, you can try some out and decide.
Looking forward, next week is no screen week. During this week, students are encouraged to decrease their screen time and increase other fun and creative activities in their free time. There will be more information coming next Monday!

The Brookside PTA is getting ready to kick off the reflections theme for this year: WITHIN REACH. Please find the forms you will need here. This year you will only need one form for all the categories. All projects will be due Friday, September 29th. This is for all students here at Brookside: Kindergarten thru 6th grade.
Sixth Grade Orchestra Program
Objective: To teach each member of the class the beginning essential techniques necessary to play their respective stringed instruments well. Daily practice will assist each student to succeed. For beginning string players, 20-30 minutes 5-6 days per week is recommended.
Instrument: Violins, violas, cellos and String Basses can be rented through Summerhays Music (Orem) (801) 226-1760, Bert Murdock Music (Orem) (801) 225-7922, Mountain Rock Music (Springville) (801)489-3000, Bill Harris Music (Provo) (801) 374-1440, Charles Liu (Midvale) (801) 255-9636 or Boothe Brothers Music (Spanish Fork) (801)798-7650. Currently the district is very low on inventory so unless you’ve already talked to me about rentals, you will need to look elsewhere.
Keep your eye on KSL.com Online Classifieds or Craigslist as well. There are dozens of instruments being sold all the time, sometimes for the same price or less than a school rental. I am always on the lookout for good deals and can help you find them.
Parent/Student Meeting: A parent/student meeting will take place at 8:30 am on Friday, September 15, 2017. At least one parent should attend.
Other Purchases and Fees: Every student needs a copy of Method Book: Measures of Success, Book 1 for their chosen instrument. There is a one time tuition fee of $75 for the year.
Classes are every Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday. 8 am SHARP. The first day of class will be Monday September 18th. That week we will have a Friday class. The following week we will only have class on Monday and Wednesday. Please bring your Method Book and Instrument EVERY REHEARSAL.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me directly via email: Reyesnorton@gmail.com. I am SO excited to start this year with you!

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

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!
Every Friday, students who have demonstrated that they have what it takes to be a tiger, will be awarded a Praise Note. We encourage every student to work hard this year so they can receive one.
Being a tiger means: Trustworthy, Is always kind, Generous, Enthusiastic, and Respectful
Jeryck McCoy: Helped stack other students chairs, Taycee Anderson: For being kind and a great friend in class, Jack Beach: Picked up trash that wasn't even his at lunch time, Cole Levengood: put up chairs for his classmates, Charlie Smith: working hard at her cursive, Dominick Mortensen: Helped with a special acting project and is becoming an amazing engineer, Lydia Steiner: She took care of the classroom by working on special projects, Brayden Smith: Leading our class in being polite, and Samantha Steiner: Leading a special project to organize our classroom.
Great work students!
