Brockbank celebrates students' birthdays in a super way this year. When it is a student's special day, he/she comes to the office and selects a book out of Pricipal Alison Hansen's basket of books. Students love choosing a book of their own and Mrs. Hansen enjoys signing each book and wishing each child a happy birthday. Funds for the books have come from hosting such successful book fairs each year. Our next book fair runs Oct 22 through Oct 28 with a special kick-off Dads & Donuts on Oct 22 at 7:40 am.

Kindergarten students at Brockbank Elementary recently celebrated Apple Day at school. The students participated in several different activities including tasting apples in several different forms; cut in slices, applesauce, pie, and juice; deciding which color of apple they like best, doing math and science activities involving apples, and illustrating their own apple books. It was a fun educational day that the students enjoyed.

The students in Mrs. Noorda's class love having Grandma Hansen in their class and look forward to seeing her everyday.
On Friday, September 24, fourth-graders at Brockbank Elementary attended a fun educational field trip to Canyon View Park located at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon. Several parent volunteers helped out to make the day successful. The students were divided into small groups and each group rotated around the many stations that parents or teachers instructed. All of the activities focused on the environmental issues, particularly conservation of resources, that are part of the science curriculum in fourth grade.
Brockbank Elementary's Preschool and Kindergarten class are now the proud owners of 3 workable 'Steam Shovels'.
The HAPPY FACTORY located in Cedar City, Utah, donated the steam shovels along with several wooden toy cars, trucks, vans, and jeeps to the classes. Charles Cooley, Founder, stated, "We take some wood that would be wasted, mix it with some time that would be wasted, and make a toy to stimulate a mind so that is won't be wasted."
On September 17th, Brockbank students observed "Constitution Day" by participating in several activities. This September 17 celebrates the 223rd anniversay of the ratification of the Constitution. Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Cynthia Loreen's class divided into groups and made posters with information they found in the newspaper.
On September 14, fourth-grade students from Brockbank had the wonderful opportunity to attend a performance by the Utah Symphony, which is one of the leading ensemble groups in the United States, at Maple Mountain High School. The students had a great time listening to the different pieces of music played such as the theme from Harry Potter. They also had the opportunity to hear what the different sections of the symphony sound like. The students had a great time on the field trip learning about music.
Brockbank PTA along with Brockbank faculty recently held their fifth annual walk-a-thon fundraiser. It was a great success with lots of support from the students and parents. Students, along with many of their parents, walked laps around a track set up on the grass field as a way to exercise and raise money for the school. The funds will purchase projectors and document cameras for classrooms. The school currently has three classrooms set up with projectors and document cameras, and their goal is to equip every classroom with those items.
