Brockbank fourth-graders in Mrs. Cynthia Loreen's class were recently rewarded for meeting their reading goals by participating in a fun activity. The students divided into groups and had snowman relays and since there is no snow, one student was the snowman and the other students "built the snowman" as fast they could to beat the other teams. They had to wrap their snowman and cut out pieces of paper to make the mouth, nose, and buttons. It was a fun activity and a great reward for working so hard.

Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on December 20. They earned this day by meeting their classroom reading goals. Each first-grade class had to fill their Polar Express train car and in order to accomplish this, each student had to read at least six books. As a reward for meeting this goal, students got to wear pajamas to school; make Polar Express trains out of HoHo's, starlight mints, and chocolate bells; make engineer hats out of paper; and received a bell to wear. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express".

Third-grade students in Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, once a week, go into Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten class and help the students. Each kindergarten student gets a third-grade buddy to work with, whether it be reading to each other, practicing flash cards, or just helping the student with whatever they are working on. Whenever there is a holiday, or at least once a month, the students get to do a fun activity together. On December 16, they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy.

Recently Brockbank students had a special person come and read to them. Mrs. Santa Claus came and read to several classrooms. She read, "Mrs. Claus Explains It All" by Elsbeth Claus. It is a book about Santa, the elves, and the North Pole. In the book Mrs. Claus answers all the important questions all kids want to know; How does Santa get into houses that don't have chimneys? What is his favorite kind of cookie? Where do his elves come from? Can all reindeer fly?
