Brockbank Kindergarten Students Make Gingerbread Men

Submitted by brenda.johnson on Mon, 12/21/2015 - 23:07

Brockbank kindergarten classes read books about "Gingerbread Men". For a class activity Mrs. Tara Farr and Miss Clarrisa Putnam's classes each made a big gingerbread man and decorated it. When they went to get the cookie out of the oven to eat it, he was gone. The gingerbread man had left the students clues around the school of where to find him. Finding the clues helped the students become more familiar with the school. The clues finally led the students back to where they started and they found the gingerbread man waiting for them. They enjoyed eating the cookie!

Tuesday, December 15, Brockbank students enjoyed a Christmas sing-a-long. Kindergarteners, first, second, and third graders got to perform a song for the rest of the school. In between each grade the whole school sang songs led by Mrs. Terri Jensen and accompanied by Mrs. Beverly Shepherd. All of the students did a great job! We want to thank Beverly Shepherd for coming and playing the piano for this fun activity!

On Wednesday, November 18, the fourth-grade students at Brockbank Elementary celebrated their Utah Heritage with a pioneer program.
