Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him.
Monday, November 13, Brockbank Elementary had some very special visitors come to our school to honor Veteran's Day. We are so proud of all of our veterans and enjoy having them come and talk to us each year. This year Brockbank students welcomed the veterans to our school by waving American Flags and giving them high fives while fifth grade students sang. The veterans introduced themselves to the students and showed a slide show presentation.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Bronco Best Students for October.

Hello, Brockbank Families!
We hope that you are enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. Students will be going outside unless it is rainy, too snowy or poor air quality.
Wax Museum: We are excited to see our 5th grade students as they come in character for our Wax Museum. It will be at 12:30 and at 6:30. The fifth grade students have worked hard and we are very proud of them!
Brockbank fifth-grade students as part of their D.A.R.E. program taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt have been learning several lessons about drugs and ways to avoid the many influences in their lives that might lead them down dangerous paths. One of the fun activities fifth-graders got to do was to see Officer DeWitt's patrol car and see all the equipment that he uses to do his job. He showed them how some of it works and how he uses it in his job. Students have really learned a lot this year and are looking forward to graduating from D.A.R.E.
Brockbank third graders were thrilled to receive dictionaries donated by Central Bank. Mr. Glen Roach, is a part of the Spanish Fork Rotary Club who has a goal of placing a dictionary in the hands of every third grade student. Each student put his/her name in the dictionary and is encouraged to use it during classwork and also at home. Mr. Roach has sponsored Brockbank Elementary for several years and we appreciate his continued support of our students. Third graders look forward every year to Mr. Glen Roach's visit and the dictionaries he brings.
Recently students in Mrs. Wendy Dimond's class went on a field trip to Rowley's Red Barn. There they got to ride a wagon over to the pumpkin patch, where they went down slides, rode tractors, climbed haystacks, and went through an apple crate maze. Each student got a donut and a coloring book. Everyone had a great time!
