KIDS have the power to make a positive difference. Please join the Kid Power committee at Brockbank Elementary to change the world. Our project this year is to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. This is the type that mostly affects children. There are children in our school that deal with this disease.
Congratulations to Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson for receiving "Brockbank's Teacher of the Year". Alexandra teaches fifth grade at Brockbank. She and her husband live in Spanish Fork. They have three daughters, one son, and four grandchildren (with one more on the way).
Alexandra is an awesome teacher. She loves teaching and it shows. She goes the extra mile in her teaching. She has a great sense of humor and makes learning fun! Her theme days are talked about by former students years after being in her class.

Brockbank kindergarten students celebrated making it through "100 days of school". To celebrate this achievement they had a fun filled day of activities centered around the number 100. They enjoyed counting 100 objects, taking a 100 step walk, doing 100 exercises, completing 100 seconds of silence (at least tried to), and discussing what they could eat 100 of. One of the funniest activities of the day was the students got to use their imagination and bring a poster with 100 collections to share with the other students. There was some pretty creative posters.
Brockbank had some outstanding reflection entries this year with six students moving on from the district level to the region level. They were Emmalyse Beecher - 3D visual arts, Adilyn Hanks - 3D visual arts, Aleah Hermansen - literature, M'Kayla Adams -visual arts, Kensington Shepherd - photography, and Chloe Beecher - photography. Great job girls!
Brockbank Elementary celebrated "100 Days of School!" Students celebrated this day in several different ways. First-graders used the number 100 in math skills like counting and place value; they wrote down 100 words that they have learned how to read and write this year; they drew pictures of what they would look like if they were 100 years old; they made cool glasses to wear; and they named 100 things you can eat and 100 things you cannot eat.
