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.

Brockbank fifth-grade students from Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson's class had a great time making Christmas presents for their parents or grandparents. Each student made a hand-stitched Christmas picture that took many hours of hard work. The students were so excited that many students asked to make a second or even third hand-stitched picture!

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 21, they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy.
