On September 10, representatives from Nebo's Title VI Indian Education program came to share a little bit of their culture and contributions with us. They taught us to sing a song using our hands, showed us some of their weavings and baskets, and shared with us many of the words and foods that we still use today that came from the Native Americans hundreds of years ago.
Brockbank first-graders read the book, "Enemy Pie" written by Derek Munson about a boy whose summer is ruined when Jeremy Ross moves in and becomes number one on the enemy list. Fortunately, for the boy his father has a secret recipe for a pie that is guaranteed to help get rid of enemies. While his Dad works on mixing the ingredients and baking the pie, he explains that his son's role in the plan is that he needs to spend a day with his enemy. Even worse, he has to be nice to him. It sounds tough, but the boy decides to give it a try.
Hello, Brockank Families!I hope you had a great weekend! There is a bit of FALL in the air and I hope you will all remember to have your children dress appropriately! We never know if a storm will hit right before the bell rings, or if we will be hot from the warm sunshine! MAKE A CONNECTIONWe are learning more and more that we are losing connections with our youth! With texting, social media and such, we are losing some of the face to face interactions and conversations that are so vital to the development of our children!
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Tara Farr's class recently read "The Tortoise and the Hare". They talked about being a good sport and not giving up and that they can do hard things. As they raced the turtles in class they discussed the importance of being a good cheerleader to each other no matter if they win or lose. They also talked about how the turtle was able to persevere and keep trying until he reached his goal. This activity helped them realize that as a class they are a team and they support each other and encourage each other to do their very best even when it may be hard!
Friday, September 6, Brockbank students enjoyed a fun eventful "Pop into Reading Party". It was for those students who read more than 960 minutes over the summer. We are so proud of all of their efforts and hard work! The majority actually read well over a thousand minutes. There was bounce houses and popsicles! The students really enjoyed it! We are looking forward to increasing the number of participants next year. Summer reading definitely makes a difference! Plan on joining the fun by reading next summer. GO BRONCOS!!

We had our first BFF lesson today! We did a fun, get to know you activity and talked about the power we have within us that helps us help others, as well as ourselves! The students talked about their power and decided a power that they would like to work on as a BFF group! It was a fun time and I'm so proud of our students and the kindness they show to their buddies!
