Come Support Buddy Benches at Brookside

Dear Brookside Parents,

My name is Jake Roper. I am doing an Eagle Scout Project to benefit Brookside students. I am raising funds to purchase and install two 8’ Buddy Benches.

 

A buddy bench is a very helpful tool at recess time. If a child cannot find his or her friends, needs a friend, or is new to the school, they can take a seat on the Buddy Bench. The school children will be taught to invite anyone sitting on the Buddy Bench to play with them.

Want to know more about the Buddy Bench? Find out more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFqxqzI71Ic

This system has been used in many schools and has delivered great results. This is why I want to give this same opportunity to Brookside students.

After the Buddy Benches are installed, at the beginning of the school year, the school children will be educated on how to use the Buddy Benches to make friends and include others.

Fundraising events (held at Brookside Elementary School parking lot):

Tuesday, August 9th, 11 am – 6 pm

Wednesday, August 10th, 9 am – 2 pm

Donations can also be made via a GoFundMe campaign at:

http://www.gofundme.com/brookside

Our goal is to raise $2,000 to cover the cost and installation of 2 Buddy Benches. Any funds donated above the cost of the Buddy Benches will be donated directly to Brookside Elementary School.

 

Thank you!

Jake Roper

Music through the Ages

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!

Sincerely,

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 Dana.keller@nebo.edu This is not a commitment, just to see who is interested. We will do formal recruiting in August and begin practices in September.)
