Welcome to Brockbank
Thursday, October 21, for Red Ribbon Week Brockbank students and faculty dressed up in western clothes to "Give Drugs the Boot". They also ate licorice twists to represent, "Don't Get Twisted up in Drugs"
Red Ribbon Week continues at Brockbank. On Wednesday, October 20, it was "Play Hard, Play Clean!" The students had the opportunity of dressing up in their favorite activity or sports uniform. The students learned how important it is to remember to stay healthy and stay active, physically and mentally. A healthy mind is less likely to take drugs! For a fun activity the students and teachers went outside and walked laps around the school. The students also received a red pencil symbolizing the fact that "Brockbank Students are Too Sharp to Take Drugs!"
Brockbank Elementary Red Ribbon Week continued on Tuesday, October 19, with "Sock it to Drugs!" Students and faculty wore silly socks to school.
October 18-22, 2009 is Red Ribbon Week at Brockbank Elementary. Many exciting events have been planned for the week. Monday, Oct. 18, was "Join Hands to Take a Stand Against Drugs!" The students were encouraged to wear red and were given a red wristband to wear and pledge to stay drug free. To go along with the day's theme of joining hands together, each student made a paper hand where they then wrote or drew a pledge on it to not take drugs. In the afternoon, all the students joined hands to make one long chain around the school.
Brockbank celebrates students' birthdays in a super way this year. When it is a student's special day, he/she comes to the office and selects a book out of Pricipal Alison Hansen's basket of books. Students love choosing a book of their own and Mrs. Hansen enjoys signing each book and wishing each child a happy birthday. Funds for the books have come from hosting such successful book fairs each year. Our next book fair runs Oct 22 through Oct 28 with a special kick-off Dads & Donuts on Oct 22 at 7:40 am.
Kindergarten students at Brockbank Elementary recently celebrated Apple Day at school. The students participated in several different activities including tasting apples in several different forms; cut in slices, applesauce, pie, and juice; deciding which color of apple they like best, doing math and science activities involving apples, and illustrating their own apple books. It was a fun educational day that the students enjoyed.
