Brockbank first-graders in Mrs. Lisa Bird's class recently read the book, "Growing Vegetable Soup". The students then got the opportunity to make their own soup. One of the most important things they learned when getting ready to make the soup was that you need to make sure and wash your hands with soap and water. When it was their turn to help the students were told to recite the alphabet to themselves while washing their hands. The students learned how important it is not to spread germs so they wore gloves on their hands and hats to cover their hair.

Recently Brockbank first-graders went on field trip and walked to the fire station. Fireman Ryan Baum, who is also first-grader Kaleb Baum's dad, gave the first-graders the tour along with fireman Pat Sorensen. They showed the students the fire engine and fireman's equipment. Ryan put on the firefighter suit that he wears to fires and told the students if there ever was a fire in their house that the most important thing is not to be afraid and hide under the bed. Firemen are their friends and are there to help them.
