Spanish Fork is hosting the 2020 Fiesta Day Reading Challenge.  To help promote the rodeo and at the same time to encourage students to read, the city is offering a Reading Contest. The goal is for students to read more this year than last year.  

Students are reading the month of March so they can meet their reading goal to get his/her name in a drawing. One student from each grade will receive two tickets to attend the rodeo. Out of those students, 2 lucky students will be drawn to receive not only 2 rodeo tickets, but a pair of  boots, a hat and wranglers. So get reading!

Brockbank sixth-grade students participated in a science fair. Students learned about the scientific process and were then challenged to go home and conduct an experiment that answered a scientific question. The sixth-grade teachers were amazed at the quality of work done by the students. The students worked really hard on their projects. Parents and students from younger grades had the opportunity to go into the gym and look at the projects and ask questions.

Kindergartner raises $450 for breast cancer research by selling cookies

SPANISH FORK — One kindergarten student from Brockbank Elementary raised almost $500 to help with breast cancer research with the help of friends, family, total strangers and some homemade cookies.

None of that would have been possible without a big goal and an even bigger heart.
