Third-grade students in Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, once a week, go into Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten class and help the students. Each kindergarten student gets a third-grade buddy to work with, whether it be reading to each other, practicing flash cards, or just helping the student with whatever they are working on. Whenever there is a holiday, or at least once a month, the students get to do a fun activity together. One fun activity is they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy.
Wednesday, December 20, Brockbank students had a special visitor come and read to them. Mrs. Santa Claus came and read to several classrooms. The students enjoyed the stories that she read to them. While there Santa came to visit too! What a treat to have Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus visit!
Second-grade students at Brockbank Elementary celebrated the Christmas season by presenting a special program on Friday, December 15, to their parents and grandparents. The students enjoyed entertaining their families by singing several Christmas songs. After the program, the students and their parents returned to their classroom to decorate gingerbread houses. It was a fun day!
Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Tuesday, December 19. They earned this day by meeting their classroom reading goals. Each first-grade class had to fill their Polar Express train car and in order to accomplish this, each student had to read at least six books. As a reward for meeting this goal, students got to wear pajamas to school; make Polar Express trains out of HoHo's, starlight mints, and chocolate bells; make engineer hats out of paper. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express".
Brockbank fifth-grade students had a great time making Christmas presents for their parents or grandparents. Each student made a hand-stitched Christmas picture that took many hours of hard work. The students were so excited that many students asked to make a second or even third hand-stitched picture!
Brockbank third-grade students all through the month of December filled the halls of the school with cheery Christmas music. On Thursday, December 14, the third-grade classes put on a Christmas program for the rest of the students and then that evening for their parents and families to enjoy. It is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit. The students did a great job!
Hello, Brockbank Families!
Thanks for your support for our sock drive! We had such great support and were able to help out the homeless shelters!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas break! I hope you will be safe in your travels and will be able to spend time with friends and family! There is really such magic when you spend special times of the year with children!
This year, Brockbank's faculty and staff decided instead of having a Christmas party they would donate gifts to give to children in local hospitals. With the generosity of everyone we were able to fill several boxes and bags to be taken to Mountain View Hospital, Utah Valley Hospital, and Orem Community Hospital.
