There are a few things happening this week that you may need to know:

Tuesday: Mrs. Tami Evans and class will have their poetry day.

Wednesday: 4th grade track meet will begin at 9:30

Thursday: 5th grade State Floats are available to view in the 5th grade hallway

Friday: Our PTA Fun Run fundraiser.  Thank you for participating in helping to raise money for our school.  This year we have been able to purchase Chromebooks and iPads for the classrooms from the money you raised last year.  Our hope is to finish purchasing for all grades.  We now are 1-to-1 in 6th, 5th, and 4th with Chromebooks and K-3 have 5 ipads for each class for small group use.  Planning to add more with this money.

Thank you

This year at Brookside Elementary we have 6 faculty members retiring and Principal Rudd is leaving for another job opportunity. 

Mrs. Evans  has taught for 21 years. 17.7 years was working as an aide in first grade and then 10 years as a full-time classroom teacher in third grade. Her favorite thing about Brookside is the kids of course!!!!

Mrs. Bird has taught for 29 years. Her first year was in Provo School District. She took a few years off to spend with her children. She had substituted at Brookside for a few years and loved it. When an opening came up she took it and has been there for the past 28 years.  She loves Brookside, the teachers, principals and students that I've worked with. This is part of her family.

Mrs. Clements has worked at Brookside for 40 years as a couple of different positions. She has been the secretary for Brookside for 30 years! 

Mrs. Channel has been a speech therapist for 30 years.  All of those years have included some time at Brookside.  As the schools have grown and changed she went from working at multiple schools to only Brookside.  Her favorite thing about Brookside has always been the great faculty and how willing they are to be flexible to allow students to receive speech help.  The students have also made it a fun place to work.

Mrs. Clark has taught for 36 years and 27 of those years were at Brookside Elementary. Her favorite thing about working at Brookside is First the amazing kids and second the Supportive and caring parents.

Mr. Hall has been a custodian for 19 years for Nebo School District. He has spend 7 of those years at Brookside Elementary. His favorite thing about Brookside was the weather not being terrible for him to maintain. 

Mrs. Rudd has been an educator for 12 years, a principal for 9 years, and has been the principal at Brookside for 5.5 years. Her favorite thing about Brookside is the relationships with the students, teachers, and parents. 

Brookside will miss all of these wonderful faculty members, it will be very different next year without them.

Brookside was spoiled by the PTA during teacher appreciation week. Everyday the students got to participate in dress up days like crazy hair, crazy socks, dress up like a star, and hat day. The teachers got served treats everyday during lunch as well. The theme was if you give a mouse a cookie and that is how they decided what treats to give us. Also, all of the teachers got their doors decorated. Thank you PTA!!

Dear Parents,

It's the time of year when we begin to think about student placement and registration for next school year.  Attached you will find a copy of our Student Placement form and our registration form.  

If you would like some input please fill out the Student Placement form.  Our regular registration will be August 1st but many of you like to check this off your list before summer begins.  That is still an option, so come into the office and either turn in both forms by printing them off at home or we have them available in there office.  They are due by May 25th, which is the day before school gets out.  I will be helping Mrs. Beckert with class lists so please, please have them to us by the due date, otherwise you will miss your chance.

A few things to know this week:

We are having a Sonic night in Spanish Fork this Wednesday.  If you happen to be in Spanish Fork for baseball, softball or soccer, stop by.  Twenty percent of sales that night come back to our school.  You don't need to make a special trip but just in case you're in the area.

Second Grade has a field trip on Friday to Harward Farm Days.

Also on Friday, we will practice an Earthquake drill.  Teachers will be talking with their students and practicing but it may also make a good dinner conversation.

Hope you enjoyed your Spring Break!

Fifth Grade Field Trip

The fifth graders braved the rain on March 31 for their field trip to Camp Floyd.  Students learned about what it was like to live in 1865.  They started with a presentation about Johnston's Army coming into the Salt Lake Valley.  They saw a real musket being fired, then they got some hands on experiences.  They became riders in the Pony Express, they visited a museum and the Stagecoach Inn, learn to fire muskets, made adobe bricks and candles, and they got to see what it was like to be a student in 1865.  The students had a blast.
