The 6th grade students put on a wonderful performance of Music through the Ages! The students and teachers worked really hard to put this program together, but the students really exceeded our expectations. The students came up with their own dances and actions to do during the program. It was a lot of fun taking a journey through the music of the different decades. We started at 1910 and went up until 2016 and it was fun to see all of the parents sing along with the songs we choose. It was a great year to end the school year!

Register for Orchestra

Orchestra Interest Form

Dear Students,

I am looking for students who love music and are looking for a fun challenge to join our 2016-2017 Brookside Orchestra. Our 6th grade orchestra meets every Monday and Wednesday and every other Friday before school from 7:50 until 8:45. The students learn the basics of their chosen instrument (violin, viola, cello or bass) and will play in three concerts throughout the year.

There are a limited number of violas and cellos for rent from the school but violins and basses must be provided by the student. There are several music stores in the area who rent instruments as well as options to buy. Summerhays in Orem and Boothe Brothers in Spanish Fork as well as a Rock Mountain Music in Springville next to Pier 49 Pizza are only a few. If you choose to buy online, however, I recommend you preview it with someone with some knowledge of the instrument before you buy. Some internet instruments aren’t very good and will just frustrate the student’s learning.

Costs: $75 tuition, $7 method book “Measures of success”

Optional: Shoulder rest for violins and viola, $100 school instrument rental fee for the year

If you think you might be interested in participating next year, please fill out the form below and return it to your teacher.

Hope to see you next year!


Dana Keller

(Please return this form to your teacher by Monday May 23rd. After May 23rd you can have your parents email the information below to This is not a commitment, just to see who is interested. We will do formal recruiting in August and begin practices in September.)



Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass

Brookside had an exciting visitor

Brookside was lucky to have Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company come perform April 25th. There was not a time that the students were not actively engaged. They had volunteers go up and dance with them on a couple of occasions. They also split the students in half and had them compete against each other. It was so much fun for the students. Many students went back to their classrooms and tried to do the exact same moves. Thank you so much for coming and putting on a show for our school.

Congratulations to Kathleen Evans for being chosen by her colleagues as Brookside's Teacher of the Year! Many of you have experienced Mrs. Evans classroom and found it to be a place of joyful learning. Students thrive in a literacy enriched environment by one of the our best. She reads aloud and discusses the classics and practices poetry and other forms of writing. The best things about Mrs. Evans in my opinion is her good heart. She loves and cares about every one of her students long after they've gone on to other grades. We are so proud of Mrs. Evans and gladly recognize her for the wonderful teacher she is. If you see her in the hall, be sure to tell her you love her too!
