The Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission is sponsoring a poster contest for military-connect students in the first through seventh grades. We are providing you with details of the contest in the attached Word document if you chose to have your students participate. I understand it can be challenging know which of your students are military connected given that it’s possible that a child of a Hill Air Force Base sergeant might be attending school in Ogden or a Tooele Army Depot lieutenant’s child might be attending school in Salt Lake. If you would like to participate more information is available in the attachment.

 

If you have additional questions, please contact Benjamin Rasmussen, benjamin.rasmussen@schools.utah.gov or 801-538-7835.

Our younger students in grades 1-3 have been participating in their Artist in Residence rotations this week.  They will continue into next week with a parent showcase on February 2nd at 1:30 p.m.  Students were able to choose between photography, visual arts, dance and storytelling.  They have had a great time so far and are learning techniques and skills for their art medium.  Today in dance they were learning how to move with the mood and volume of the music.  In photography they learned how to look at objects from different angles such as under, through and over.   Visual arts was working on using shapes to make different patterns and designs, and storytelling was learning about using expression to tell stories.

Sixth Grade Students Attend Sports Hero Day at BYU

On January 18, 2018 approximately 1,000 sixth-grade students from across Utah Valley descended onto BYU campus for an exciting day to be spent with their local sports heroes. Brockbank Elementary made up 92 of all the 6th grade students. BYU calls this activity "Sports Hero Day." Its purpose is to provide sixth-grade students the opportunity to interact with BYU athletes, to learn about teamwork, and to observe their positive examples in academics, athletics, and social circumstances up close and personal. The sixth-grade students were given the chance to try many different sports with the college athletes by their side. Some of the student's favorites were football, track, and baseball/softball. Before the students went to BYU they wrote essays explaining, "Who Their Hero Is and Why?"  Brockbank's winner was Morgan Ivie. The culminating activity was a pep rally including the BYU cheerleaders, cougarettes, and Cosmo's own dunking team. They also listened to athlete's who spoke about staying mentally tough, being honest, keeping a good attitude, and balancing school and sports. It was a fun day that the students really enjoyed!

Penny Wars

Penny Wars is underway here at Rees Elementary, and will continue until Friday the 26th.  For those unfamiliar, every year we collect pennies to purchase shoes for the Warm the Soles organization.  Classes each have their own cans and are competing to see who can earn the most money.  Every penny dropped in the class can earns 1 point. The fun and trick of penny wars is to try and "bomb" or sabotage the other classes.  For every silver coin dropped in a class can, that counts as negative points.  For example, a quarter takes away 25 points from the class.  The students love this activity, so please gather up your loose change and send it in.  The student council is in charge of this and we appreciate their hard work.
