Recently, Brockbank had two representatives from the Utah Water Van program come to visit. The Utah Water Van is an educational outreach program about Utah's wetlands and is offered by the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium to fourth-grade students throughout Utah. Fourth-grade students are allowed through the use of models, to see and better understand the importance of Utah's wetlands and about some of Utah's native wetland plants and animals. Students got to see a red spotted toad, tiger salamander, garter snake and a kingsnake that are found in wetlands.
Utah Farm Bureau Women recently held a statewide short story contest. The theme was "Agriculture - Our Future". All the winners from the Utah County level came from Brockbank Elementary and all from Mrs. RaDawn Anderson's fourth grade class. The students that entered spent lots of hours researching and writing their stories. The winners were Isabella Beecher taking first with her story, "A Visit to Grandma's Farm", she will receive $35 and her story will be submitted to the state competition. Second place was Bryden Sorensen with her story, "Agriculture My Future", she will receive $25.
SafeUT Awareness Days February 22 & 23
In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app. As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.
Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone.
Hello, Brockbank Families!
Thank you to all those who have taken the school survey! We appreciate your feedback. If you have not taken it, please do so. The Stake Holder’s survey can be found on the Nebo Website! If you have questions or concerns about our school, I hope you would come in and discuss those with me so that we can problem solve together.
Brockbank is lucky to have such great "GAINS" (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools) specialists that come and help train teachers and teach students the about the arts. Rachel Kimball is our dance specialist and she is awesome! She recently taught first grade students about different kinds of soil through dance. It is awesome how you can use a science core and learn through dance.
