Hello, My name is Kristy Strong and I have been heading up the Sundance Ski and Snowboard School Program for Brookside Elementary for the last 2 years and will be heading up your school this year as well. Since this is not a school run program you will be contacting me for all questions regarding this program. You can reach me at 801-491-7262 (can text).
Our class has been working so hard to make good choices. As a reward, Mrs. O brought some furry friends to visit us. Everyone was so excited to meet Roger and Saturn, two Mini Rex bunnies. We learned all about bunnies. We learned that a girl bunny is called a doe and a boy bunny is called a buck. Special thanks to Lynda Williams at UVU for letting her bunnies come to our class for the day.
Some thoughts from students:
David: "The best part was that one of the bunnies liked me!"
Aiyana: "The best part was that they're SO cute!"
Mrs Peterson’s 2nd grade class has finished their first class read aloud chapter book, “Because of Winn-Dixie.” They we’re able to enjoy the famous ‘Dump Punch’ from the story!
Dump Punch Recipe:
Half glass of Sprite
Half glass of grape fruit juice
“My favorite part of Because of Winn Dixie is when he pulls back his lips, pulls back his lips, and smiles! Also it makes me laugh and it’s cute”, says Marley from Mrs. Peterson's class.
As part of the third grade curriculum, we focus on learning about the cultures, customs, languages, traditions, and communities around the world. To help students learn about these things, each month we have a “Culture Day”, where parents/grandparents/family members of our students volunteer their time to come in and present about a country they are from or have visited. Thank you to our volunteers that came to visit us in September!
On September 26th, 2017 the sixth grade went on a field trip to Diamond Fork Canyon in Spanish Fork. There, we did four different activities.
For the first activity, we talked about the characteristics of plants. We learned about the varieties of leafs, and the different types of trees. After filling out a paper, and doing a group discussion, we did a scavenger hunt for different plants. We were given a card describing the plant, then we went to find it, and bring back a sample to our guide.
This month we recognized many wonderful superheroes in our school and community. Congratulations to Mr. Johnson and Mrs. Dutson! We love them and they are truly superheroes in our school. We also want to congratulate all of our amazing student winners for making great choices.
A special thanks and congratulations to our community heroes. These men and women assisted with clean-up efforts in Houston after devastaing hurricanes! We appreciate you: Barrett Raymond, Raul Garcia and Vickie Murdock! Thanks for being superheroes in our community!
