Brockbank students are excited to break-in a brand new playground! Back in the summer of 2009 Nebo District Patrons passed a bond and a portion of the bond money was set aside for improvements on existing schools. Brockbank's south playground was one of the first things on the list for improvement and students were thrilled with the news (teachers, too!). Throughout the 2009-10 school year, Brockbank's Staff, PTA, and Community Council reviewed proposals from various vendors and selected one that had all the components we were looking for. The new playground was installed in July.

Brockbank first-grade students learned about seeds and plants in class. They had the opportunity to plant seeds in cups and grow "hair" for their own "grass person". The student's cups are left at school for the students to make sure they have water and sunlight. After two weeks their "grass person" had long green hair. Before taking them home some of the students gave their "grass person" a hair cut. It was a fun way to learn about how seeds grow!
Brockbank Elementary recently held graduation for all sixth-graders advancing to Junior High School. Family and friends were invited to join the students in a fun evening showcasing the school year. After the students shared their singing talents, a slide show was shown of activities throughout the past year. Then after receiving their diplomas, and being introduced by their teacher, each of the sixth-graders told the audience a favorite memory from sixth-grade or their time at Brockbank Elementary.
