Our first spotlight this week is Chelsie Bergera, one of our kind and caring kindergarten teachers! Mrs. Bergera loves being a teacher at Cherry Creek because she loves the staff, students, and parents she gets to work with. She has always been inspired to be a teacher because of the teachers she had growing up. Mrs. Bergera attended UVU and SUU to earn her master's degree and endorsements in ESL and Early Childhood Education. She loves teaching writer's workshop. If Mrs. Bergera could have a perfect day, it would include camping with her family and eating chips and salsa from Los Hermanos. She has been married to her husband, Wes, for 8 years. Mrs. Bergera loves receiving treats and gift cards.  Thanks for being so awesome, Mrs. Bergera!

Fourth-Grade Prepares To Go To The Symphony

Art City Fourth-grade Students have an opportunity to go to a Symphony on September 30, 2016.  We ask that the students dress nicely--symphony dress. (If you're not sure email your students' teacher).

Each school year the Utah Symphony provides an outreach program for all 4th-grade students in Nebo District. Classroom teachers receive materials to help students prepare for this formal concert experience. These materials are based on the Utah State Music Core Curriculum, as is the performance itself.  Before attending, the fourth-grade teachers give students a little introduction to the music and the composers.  Students will listen for mood created by a musical passage, expand their vocabulary of adjectives and adverbs that might describe a mood, and incorporate those into a short story inspired by Bernstein’s Overture to Candide.

This week Miss Wilzbach's second-grade class learned about what characteristics are. They learned that all characters have characteristics that make up who they are. They are on the outside and the inside. Outside characteristics are what a person looks or sounds like. Inside characteristics are who they are and what they have on the inside. Both kinds of characteristics are important because they make us who we are! ​

Brockbank Bulletin

Brockbank Elementary News - Mon, 09/19/2016 - 6:15pm

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Thanks for your support with our minimal day today! 

We want to congratulate our great secretary, Brenda Johnson, for receiving a PEAK Award from Nebo District!  Brenda works so hard as our secretary and loves each student here.  She is helpful to everyone and makes sure our school is ready to go each day!  Congratulations, Brenda!

We are still in need of parents for our School Community Council.  This council meets once a month and helps plan goals for the school.  Your voice is so important in this process!  If you are interested, please contact the office. 

Sept. 22 will be our first Chick-fil-A school night.  This year we have partnered with Chick-fil-A for 4 nights where they will give us a percentage of what they make from Brockbank patrons.  Your child will be bringing home a flyer that you can take to Chick-fil-A, from 5:00-8:00.  Last year we earned over $1000.00 from our family partnership night, that helped supply our classrooms with Chromebooks, Kindle Fires, and IPads.  We appreciate your support and Chick-fil-A for making this happen!

Please keep collecting Box Tops.  At the end of the month we will collect them.  Your child may bring them glued to the given paper, or just in a baggie or some other container.

Your child may be bringing home some “Studies Weekly” newspapers.  The teachers in our school will use some of these newspapers and may send some home.  This program gives the opportunity for students to vote as if they were in a real election.  At the bottom of the first newspaper, it explains how our students can be a part of reading these lessons and helping to contribute to a statue that will be built near the Statue of Liberty.  In the article, it says that our school will receive a portion of the money.  While we think this is a great opportunity and provides excellent lessons that we hope you and your child will take advantage of, we will not be using this as a fundraiser.  Please watch for the newspapers and enjoy the valuable information!

Thanks for all you are doing at home to help our school!  Brockbank is the best!

Thanks for your support!

Mrs. Nelson
