December 6, students that met their reading goal for the previous month got invited to attend a reading reward activity. The students got a cup of hot chocolate, a cookie and got to listen to Principal Nelson read Christmas stories! Each month Principal Nelson invites students that have met their reading goal to a reading reward activity. Please encourage your child to read and to turn in his/her reading calendar!
Brockbank kindergarten classes read books about "Gingerbread Men". For a class activity Mrs. Tara Farr and Miss Clarissa Putnam's classes each made a big gingerbread man and decorated it. When they went to get the cookie out of the oven to eat it, he was gone. The gingerbread man had left the students clues around the school of where to find him. Finding the clues helped the students become more familiar with the school. The clues finally led the students back to where they started and they found the gingerbread man waiting for them. They enjoyed eating the cookie!
Friday, December 8, Brockbank fifth-grade students having completed their Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) training taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt of the Spanish Fork Police Department graduated. Officer DeWitt taught the students several lessons on drugs and ways to avoid drug use. He stressed the influences that drugs can have and the potential dangers. As part of the D.A.R.E. requirements, students were encouraged to write an essay on what they have learned.
As part of our “Building a Community,” Brockbank is having a sock drive! We are collecting new socks to give to the homeless shelter. All types of socks are needed and can be turned in to the office or your child’s classroom. This sock drive will go until December 15th. Thanks for your support!
Hello, Brockbank Families!
We are getting excited for upcoming events in December! Please make note of the different activities coming up!
PTA Giving Trees: Our great PTA has been hard at work putting up the “Giving Christmas Trees” outside each classroom door. The ornaments on the trees are gift ideas, if you would like to give a gift to your child’s teacher. If you want to give one of these gifts, please take an ornament off of the tree so that others know that, that gift is being given. Thanks to our PTA for doing this fun project!

Recently Brockbank Elementary fifth-graders held their wax museum. The students picked a famous person in American history, they did research on that person, memorizing interesting and important facts, and then they got to dress-up like that person for a day. During the day, students from other grades were able to visit the museum and learn about these famous Americans. That night there was a program so that parents and grandparents could come and see what the students had learned. It was a very fun and educational experience for all that participated.
Brockbank kindergarten students in Mrs. Tara Farr and Miss Clarissa Putnam's classes have been learning about the letters in the alphabet. Recently while learning about the Letter P and since pigs start with the letter P, the students put on the play, "The Three Little Pigs". Each student had the opportunity to act out a part either as the wolf or one of the three pigs. It was a fun way to learn about the letter P.
