Recently the junior high schools held their job shadow day. Seventh-graders had the opportunity to go to work with a parent or someone and job shadow them for the day. Brockbank was lucky to have several students come to our school and do their job shadow. Kylie Eichler from Diamond Fork Junior High and Jessica Mitchell from Spanish Fork Junior each helped in the office at Brockbank for their job shadow. It was fun to have these two former students come and help out and hopefully they learned something about working in an office.
Recently five wives of local dentists came to Brockbank as part of the Dental Alliance to educate first-graders about the importance of brushing their teeth and oral hygiene. To make it a fun learning experience they put on a fun puppet show for the students.
Brockbank students showed their creativity and artistic talents by creating Valentine boxes. There were some very creative boxes and it was fun to see all the different ways students use their imagination.
Brockbank librarian, Mrs. Peggy Rothaug just finished hosting a book club for grades 3-6. Students interested signed up and then names were drawn to see who would be in the book club. Because of the availability of books it was limited to 10 students from each grade, each grade read a different book. One day a week during the students lunch hour they would meet in the library, students were given approximately three weeks to read the book. To get the students excited they watched trailers about the book. Then each week they would meet and talk about the characters and interesting parts.
Brockbank kindergarteners recently celebrated making it through "100 days of school". To celebrate this achievement they had a fun filled day of activities centered around the number 100. They earned an official "100 Day" certificate by completing the following activities; counting 100 objects, taking a 100 step walk, doing 100 exercises, completing 100 seconds of silence (at least tried to), having a 100 day magic trick, discussing what they could eat 100 of, and there was a 100 drops of water test.
Brockbank Elementary recently celebrated "100 Days of School!" Students celebrated this day in several different ways. First-graders used the number 100 in math skills like counting and place value; they wrote down 100 words that they have learned how to read and write this year; they drew pictures of what they would look like if they were 100 years old; they made cool glasses to wear; and they named 100 things you can eat and 100 things you cannot eat.
Recently some members of the Spanish Fork High School PTSA (Parent Teacher Students Association) came to Brockbank. PTSA is a club that helps students get involved in their community by performing services. For one of their service projects they came to Brockbank and interacted with first-graders. The first-graders really enjoyed spending time and connecting with these students. Out of the 23 members that came 13 of them attended elementary school at Brockbank. It was fun to see these students come back to Brockbank!
Brockbank Elementary is happy to announce the Hansen Heroes for January.
