Brockbank Elementary participated Thursday, April 20, in the "Great Utah Shake Out" that was held throughout Utah, by holding a school wide earthquake drill. The purpose is make sure everyone is ready if a big earthquake hits the Wasatch Front. Brockbank believes it is important to be ready by having monthly fire, earthquake, or lockdown drills throughout the year. It is important to know what to do if anything were to happen, we want our staff and students to be prepared.
Mrs. Kristel Peterson's class has been working hard researching and learning about VIP's of the Renaissance! Mrs. Lisa Bean, our district drama specialist, taught a workshop on writing dialogue and students created hand puppets that they used to act out a "scene" teaching their classmates about their VIP. They did a fantastic job - Bravo!
Spanish Fork is hosting the 2017 Wrangler Champions Challenge Rodeo again this year on Saturday, June 3 at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds. To help promote the rodeo and at the same time to encourage students to read, the city offered a Champions Challenge Reading Contest. Students that met their reading goal for the month of March got his/her name put in a drawing where one student from each grade won two tickets to attend the rodeo.
Brockbank fifth and sixth-graders have been working hard the last few months preparing for the district debate tournament. Under the direction of Mrs. Kristel Peterson, students spent hours researching, dividing into affirmative and negative teams, and preparing oral arguments. At the district tournament out of approximately 100 overall students Brockbank students did extremely well with all their teams placing in the top 10. Students debated in teams of two, overall winners are in pairs. Ten total teams go on to state and Brockbank students make up four of those teams.
