Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on December 22. 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; and received a bell to wear. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express". It was a great way to celebrate all of their hard work! Pictured standing by the "Polar Reading Express" train are first-grade students from Mrs. Marcy Noorda's class Bevan Jones, Maklain Shepherd, Macy Hullinger, Kami Holt, and Tiara Kubalek.
