Brockbank First-Graders Earn "Polar Express Day"!

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on December 20. They earned this day by meeting their classroom reading goals. Each first-grade class had to fill their Polar Express train car and in order to accomplish this, each student had to read at least six books. As a reward for meeting this goal, students got to wear pajamas to school; make Polar Express trains out of HoHo's, starlight mints, and chocolate bells; make engineer hats out of paper; and received a bell to wear. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express".

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

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

What is his favorite kind of cookie? Where do his elves come from? Can all reindeer fly?

 

Brockbank Holds Food Drive to Help Families in Need

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank Elementary recently got in the holiday spirit by holding their annual food drive. The student council sponsored the drive and worked hard to get all the students excited about it. To help get the students motivated, they decided to have each student decide if they wanted to be on team BYU or team University of Utah. Students brought in cans as a contest between red and blue to see who could bring in the most cans. It was a great success! Team BYU won but really everyone wins because all together Brockbank donated over 1,400 cans of food to the Utah County Food Bank.

Brockbank Kindergarteners Make Gingerbread Man

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

In Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten classes, they have been reading books about "Gingerbread Men". For a class activity they made a big gingerbread man cookie, decorated it, and baked it. When they went to get the cookie out of the oven to eat it, he was gone. The gingerbread man left the students clues around the school of where to find him. Finding the clues helped the students become more familiar with the school. The clues finally led the students back to where they started and they found the gingerbread man waiting for them.
