Tuesday, May 23, Brockbank Elementary held graduation for all sixth-graders advancing to Junior High School. Family and friends were invited to join the students in a fun evening. To start off students shared their singing talents, after which each student was introduced by their teacher and given his/her diploma. Many of the students began attending Brockbank in kindergarten, and have many happy and fun experiences at our school. It will be hard to see these students leave for junior high, but we wish them the best. We will miss them next year!
To go along with the sixth-grade world history curriculum, students chose a country that they wanted to learn more about and do a report on. Each student researched pictures and interesting facts about his/her assigned country. Each student made a visual display representing their country. Some presented on a poster, some dressed up in clothes typical of their country, and some brought artifacts. All students shared facts about their country at their sixth-grade graduation for family and friends to see. It was a great way to learn about the many countries in the world.
We want to keep your child reading! Summer reading loss is real! Research has proven that the impact of summer reading loss can be significant.
The more time a child spends reading, the better reader they become. So the best thing you can do for your children is to read to them, reading with them, and providing them opportunities for more reading.

We are excited to offer a summer reading program this year at Brockbank. The goal of our program is to keep students reading in the summer. Summer school runs for eight weeks, beginning the week of June 6, and running through July 20. If you decide to participate your child will be assigned a 45 minute class that meets twice a week on a Tuesday and Thursday morning. There is forms in the office if you are interested in participating in this program. The tuition for summer school is $30 per student. We are excited to offer this wonderful opportunity.
