Brockbank faculty recently put on a Marvin & Jessie assembly for the students on the topic of responsibility. Marvin and Jessie is a character education program where two "students" (Mr. Ryan Murray and Mrs. Kristel Peterson) experience difficulties and how they overcome them. Other teachers on staff take turns in the plays as supporting characters. The students enjoy these plays because they get to see their teachers acting like students on the stage and they can relate to the dilemmas Marvin and Jessie experience.
