Submitted by brenda.johnson on Wed, 10/30/2013 - 23:14

Tuesday, October 29, the first-grade students at Brockbank Elementary spent the day at Cornbelly's Corn Maze at Thanksgiving Point. They enjoyed all the activities learning about farming and agriculture. The first-graders enjoyed bouncing on the jumping pillows, the "big" rocking chair, riding on the hay wagon, but especially liked walking through the corn maze. Each of the students got a small pumpkin to bring back with them. It was a fun day! Brockbank first-grade students and their teachers really appreciate the Herbst family for allowing them to come and enjoy the day!
