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 also got to experience being in a pioneer school where they learned about the Deseret Alphabet, how to mind their manners, and that they better come to school on time, or they may find themselves wearing the dunce cap. They got to ride the train around the park and visit the Saddlery, where a skilled leather worker explained how a deer or cow hide becomes a fine leather pouch or a saddle. It was a fun field trip and the students really enjoyed it!

Lights On Event

Park Elementary News - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 9:45am

Park Elementary has been "sorted" (if you have seen Harry Potter you'll understand) and has been chosen to represent the Gryffindor House!  Gryffindor is the house which most values the virtues of Courage, Bravery, and Determination.  That definitely describes our school.  Three other schools have been sorted to represent Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.  All Four Houses will be competing against each other to see how many wizards/witches or muggles come to the District Lights On Event.  You are welcome to dress up as your favorite wizard or witch or just come as a muggle (non-magical person). There will be activities and games for the whole family, so come make a night of it! Monday, October 29, 2018 at 6 pm Located at the new Advanced Learning Center 161 E. 400 N. in Salem.  More info on Lights On Events:

Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates media coverage across the country each year.

 The Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.

 It's called "Lights On", because the lights are left on after school to run the programs.

It's for everyone!!!

This week we celebrated National School Lunch Week. This is a time we can share with the students just how important it is to eat a healthy lunch each day. Though it was a short week we had a few fun things happen! Students were able to share what they love about school lunch and it made the lunch ladies super happy! Our very own local Mountainland Apple growers in Santaquin donated apples for students to try out at lunch. We also had an art contest asking students to share what healthy lunch they have brewing in their pots! The lucky winners were Ava White in Mr. Barber's 4th grade class and Andy Rogers in Mrs. Hall's 1st grade class.

We have been learning about density. First we checked to see what things were more dense than water. We found those things would sink. If things were less dense than water they would float. Next we made density towers with different liquids. The more dense liquids would go to the bottom.
