Brockbank Elementary recently completed their annual food drive. Usually the food drive is held before the holidays but this year Brockbank decided to have it in January. After talking to local food banks, they say this time of year food is especially in need because after Christmas they have a hard time building back up their supplies and there is significant need with all the cold, winter weather we have been having. The student council sponsored the drive and worked hard to get all the students excited about it. To help get the students motivated, they decided to have in school competition between the grades and classes. Students were divided into two groups kindergarten through third grade and fourth through sixth grades. Students brought in cans as a contest to see which class could bring in the most cans. It was a great success! Class winners were Mrs. Linda Argyle / Mrs. Whitney Munns' third-grade class (K-3) and the older grades (4-6) had a tie with Mrs. JaNae Wilson's sixth-grade class and Mrs. Sara Stout's sixth-grade class bringing in the most cans. Even though these classes won the school competition, really everyone wins because Brockbank was able to donate 1,398 cans to Tabitha's Way here in Spanish Fork.
