Second-grade students at Brockbank Elementary celebrated the Christmas season by presenting a special program on Wednesday, December 18, to their parents and grandparents. The students enjoyed entertaining their families by singing several Christmas songs. After the program, the students and their parents returned to their classroom to decorate gingerbread houses. It was a fun day!
The Nebo Education Foundation meets each month to discuss submitted educational grant proposals for students in Nebo School District. One of the goals of the foundation is to fund worthwhile projects in the district that provide resources to enrich student learning. Brockbank's Robin Martin recently received one of those grants.
Monday, December 16, Brockbank students had a special visitor come and read to them. Mrs. Santa Claus came and read to several classrooms. The students enjoyed the stories that she read to them.
For a few weeks, Brockbank third grade students have filled the halls of the school with cheery Christmas music. On Tuesday, December 10, the third grade classes put on a Christmas program for the rest of the students and then that evening for their parents and families to enjoy. It is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. The students did a great job!
After all the classes voted for their favorite gingerbread house the winners were 1st place - #1 made by the office, 2nd place - #9 made by 1st grade, and 3rd place - #3 made by speech.
Brockbank's Wendy Dimond was recognized and received the PEAK (Positive Energy and Kind) Award for December. She along with five other deserving Nebo employees were honored Wednesday night, December 11 at the School Board Meeting. Congratulations Wendy!

December 11, students that met their reading goal for the previous month got invited to attend a reading reward activity. The students got a cup of hot chocolate, a cookie and got to listen to Principal Nelson read Christmas stories! Each month Principal Nelson invites students that have met their reading goal to a reading reward activity. Please encourage your child to read and to turn in his/her reading calendar!
To help everyone get in the Christmas spirit Brockbank's faculty and staff competed in the third annual gingerbread competition. The students decide the winner by voting for the gingerbread house they think is the best. Students each receive one vote placing their vote in one of the numbered tubs. Names will then be drawn out of each of the tubs and a lucky student whose name is drawn will get that gingerbread house to take home.
Make sure to check out all the creative gingerbread creations.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Bronco Best Students for November!
