On Friday, April 26, kindergarten students at Brockbank Elementary entertained their parents and grandparents with a fun program. They showed them what they have learned this year by each student memorizing a small speaking part and by singing songs. The students worked really hard practicing and performing this program and all of them did a great job!
Friday, April 19, ten Brockbank Elementary students represented their school in the Utah State Elementary Debate Tournament held at Jordan High School in Sandy. Students spent months and months preparing and reseaching for this opportunity. These ten students earned the right to go to state by debating and placing earlier in the year at the District Debate Tournament.They have worked in partnerships preparing arguments for either the affirmative or the negative. All elementary students statewide receive the same topic.
Brockbank's Penny War, "Pennies for Pets" was a success. Sixth-grade student council members known as "Kid Power" moviated students to bring in their change to help pets by earning money to give to the South Valley Animal Shelter to be used to care for animals and get them ready for adoption. Each grade had a girls can and a boys can. The object of the "penny war" was to get more penny points than the other teams. Pennies were each worth 1 point. There was a catch - if students put anything other than pennies in their can, it subtracted points from their total.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Hansen Heroes for March! Hansen Heroes are students that make good choices and set good examples for their classmates!
