Friday, November 11, Brockbank Elementary had some very special visitors come to our school to honor Veteran's Day. We are so proud of all of our veterans and enjoy having them come and talk to us each year. The program consisted of a slide show presentation, and the veterans introducing themselves and talking to the students. It was a very touching assembly reminding us all why veterans are so important and about all the sacrifices that they have made for us so that we can be free.
Recently Brockbank Elementary fifth-graders held their wax museum. The students picked a famous person in American history, they did research on that person, memorizing interesting and important facts, and then they got to dress-up like that person for a day. During the day, students from other grades were able to visit the museum and learn about these famous Americans. That night there was a program so that parents and grandparents could come and see what the students had learned. It was a very fun and educational experience for all that participated.
Hello, Brockbank Families!
This week is Red Ribbon Week and we look forward to a lot of great activities that will help us to remember to make good choices and live a healthy lifestyle! Here is what we have planned for each day:
Tuesday: Wear purple! OUR SCHOOL RULES-I TUNE OUT VIOLENCE!
Wednesday: Wear anything that represents a Super Hero! I HAVE THE POWER TO BE DRUG FREE!
Thursday: Wear any type of sports gear (hats are allowed this day) WINNERS DON’T DO DRUGS!
Brockbank students show their school spirit by wearing their school t-shirts or the school colors (maroon or navy blue) every Friday. The PTA decides each month the class that has shown the most "school spirit" and they get the traveling trophy in their class for that month. October's winners were first place and getting the trophy, Mrs. Camille Pearson's fifth-grade class. Second place went to last months winners, Mrs. Caitlin Dawe's second grade class. Tied for third place were Mrs. Marcy Noorda's first-grade class and Mr. Gregory Hunt's third-grade class.
Recently 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 especially enjoyed bouncing on the jumping pillows and the "big" rocking chair. 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!
Shasta Parry, along with her miniature horses came to Brockbank and gave a presentation called, "Say WHOA to bullying". Pony brothers, Rhett and Royal, came to Ms. Kristi Jensen's class. These 18 month old ponies have the same dad but different mothers and were born a day apart. The ponies were friendly and love to cuddle. Students in Ms. Jensen's class loved them and really enjoyed having them come to their classroom.
Friday, November 4, fourteen sixth-grade student officers had the opportunity to attend the Student Council Conference at BYU. Students heard from various presenters such as John Bytheway, Ryan Radebaugh, and Josh Hewlett who have all had a variety of leadership experiences to draw from and are experienced youth motivational speakers.
