Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Thursday, December 18. 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. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express". It was a great way to celebrate all of their hard work!

Third-grade students in Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, once a week, go into Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten class and help the students. Each kindergarten student gets a third-grade buddy to work with, whether it be reading to each other, practicing flash cards, or just helping the student with whatever they are working on. Whenever there is a holiday, or at least once a month, the students get to do a fun activity together. Recently they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy. It was a fun activity for the students to do together. The best part was they got to eat their trees.

Brockbank kindergarten classes read books about "Gingerbread Men". For a class activity Mrs. Tara Farr and Miss Clarrisa Putnam's classes each made a big gingerbread man and decorated it. When they went to get the cookie out of the oven to eat it, he was gone. The gingerbread man had left the students clues around the school of where to find him. Finding the clues helped the students become more familiar with the school. The clues finally led the students back to where they started and they found the gingerbread man waiting for them. They enjoyed eating the cookie that they had all helped to make.

This year's Crystal Apple Award went to Lindsay Miller. 

Lindsay is a wonderful member of our faculty… She is so friendly, and helpful to everyone.  Lindsay is easy to work with and contributes to our school as a whole. She is always willing to share great ideas with others.

Some of her teammates, both previous and current, have mentioned that she is very energetic in her teaching, and her life in general. We hear she is amazing with transitions in her classroom, that they are really something to watch!

 She has an amazing rapport with her students. It is very apparent she finds joy in teaching, and in life. She spreads that joy around.

Lindsay is an avid traveler, and has visited many fascinating places, including one year when she took a break from teaching here to go and teach in China.

Lindsay has a wonderful sense of humor, and all around fabulous personality. We are all so lucky to have Lindsay as part of our Spring Lake faculty.
