Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Wednesday, December 21. 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. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express".
Brockbank teachers and staff have lots of Christmas spirit. There were several elves spotted around the school!
Friday, December 9, Brockbank fifth-grade students having completed their Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) training taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt of the Spanish Fork Police Department graduated. Officer DeWitt taught the students several lessons on drugs and ways to avoid drug use. He stressed the influences that drugs can have and the potential dangers. As part of the D.A.R.E. requirements, students were encouraged to write an essay on what they have learned.
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.
Hello, Brockbank Families!
Three more days until the official holiday fun can begin! It is such a wonderful time of the year and today we were able to celebrate this holiday season by singing Christmas songs together as a student-body! There is nothing that warms my heart more, that to listen to children sing! It’s the best!
Monday, December 19, Brockbank's employees met in the library for a Christmas Ugly Sweater Party!

The PTA Christmas Trees: Outside of each classroom there are Christmas trees with ornaments on them with items that the teachers could use for their classrooms. If you are looking for ideas for Christmas gifts for your child’s teacher, this is a great way to take care of that need! Just take an ornament, then others will not duplicate that gift! Thanks so much!
Brockbank is happy to annouce the Bronco Best students for November.
