On Friday, April 24, 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!

Brockbank Elementary participated today, Thursday, April 16, in the "Great Utah Shake Out" that was held throughout Utah, by holding a school wide earthquake drill. The purpose is make sure everyone is ready if a big earthquake hits the Wasatch Front. Brockbank believes it is important to be ready by having monthly fire, earthquake, or lockdown drills throughout the year. It is important to know what to do if anything were to happen, we want our staff and students to be prepared.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Nelson Heroes for March!
