Brockbank fourth-graders went on a field trip to, This Is The Place Heritage Park. There students were able to take part in a ‘hands-on learning’ experience that complements the state curriculum for fourth-grade Utah History. Students participated in "life in Pioneer Times" which consisted of pushing a handcart. The students discovered what it was like to come West with a handcart. They got to ride the train around the park and visit the Native American Village.
November 29, a representative from Discovery Gateway Children's Museum, visited the fifth-grade students at Brockbank. The students enjoyed a fun science lesson on chemical and physical changes. After a demonstration the students were then able to conduct their own chemical reactions. It was a very fun way to learn!

Brockbank kindergarten students celebrated Thanksgiving by having their annual Thanksgiving Feast. Each student had a specific job to do to help put the meal together so they would learn the importance of working together. The students really enjoyed eating a meal that they helped to make!
Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him.
Students in Mrs. Wendy Dimond's kindergarten class made necklaces and hats for Thanksgiving.
Monday, November 13, 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. This year Brockbank students welcomed the veterans to our school by waving American Flags and giving them high fives while fifth grade students sang. The veterans introduced themselves to the students and showed a slide show presentation.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Bronco Best Students for October.
