In Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten classes, they have been reading books about "Gingerbread Men". For a class activity they made a big gingerbread man cookie, decorated it, and baked it. When they went to get the cookie out of the oven to eat it, he was gone. The gingerbread man 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.

Brockbank fifth-grade students recently completed and graduated from their Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) training taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt of the Spanish Fork Police Department. 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. Outstanding essay winners had the opportunity to read their essay at graduation.
Brockbank third graders were thrilled to receive dictionaries donated by Central Bank recently. Glen Roach is a part of the Spanish Fork Rotary Club. The Rotary Club has a goal of placing a dictionary in the hands of every third grade student. Each student put his/her name in the dictionary and is encouraged to use it during classwork and also at home. Mr. Roach has sponsored Brockbank Elementary for several years and we appreciate his continued support of our students. Third graders look forward every year to his visit and the dictionaries he brings.
Congratulations to Brockbank's Hansen Heroes for November!

Brockbank Elementary recently got in the holiday spirit by holding their annual food drive. The student council sponsored the drive and worked hard to get all the students excited about it. To help get the students motivated, there was a contest between the classes and also grades to see who could bring in the most cans. If a grade brought in over 350 cans they qualified for an ice cream party for their grade. It was a great success! Four grades reached that goal; kindergarten, first, fourth, and fifth-grades will all get ice cream parties. Mrs.
November 23, 2010 Brockbank kindergarten students celebrated Thanksgiving by having their annual Thanksgiving Feast. Each student has a specific job to do to help put the meal together and they learn the importance of working together. The students really enjoyed eating a meal that they helped to make!
Brockbank Elementary is happy to share some fun ways on "How to Cook a Turkey" according to second graders. Students had a creative writing assignment which lets the students use their imagination with no prompting from the teacher as far as content, they are able to write their own ideas. Below is some ideas of "How to Cook a Turkey" by Brockbank second grade students in their writing:
Jeronimo Perlaes - First go find a turkey. Next Drive home. Then Stuff the turkey with salt. Last take the bones off and eyes. Finally put it in a pan and in the oven.
