Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Thursday, December 19. 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.

Utah Department of Transportation recently presented their SNAP program to Brockbank Elementary students. SNAP is a catchy, snappy curriculum designed to help students walk and bike to and from school school safely each day. Students learned basic bike maintenance, the importance of wearing a helmet, how to look "left, right, then left again" before crossing a street, and how to safely navigate through a construction site when walking or biking.

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