Today Mr. Crockett's class received the supplies that were awarded from a Donors Choose Grant.  His class now has headphones to go along with their Chromebooks.  This allows the students to do even more with their Chromebooks.  As they are working on projects and need to add sound, or watch a video from a presentation; they can do so without interrupting their fellow students.  Students can now accomplish even more in class thanks to this generous donation from the Ripple Company and the donorchoose.org site that allows teachers to apply for grants and lets individuals help those teachers out.

Thanks to donorschoose.org and Ripple again for the wonderful gift for our class.

Sierra Bonita Scores a Perfect 100 by Energy Star!

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Tue, 04/17/2018 - 11:09am

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification. We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified. This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation. Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100. Sierra Bonita was one of the schools who scored a perfect 100!!

The certification process for Energy Star is not an easy one. Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Energy Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account. This data, along with many other data points, are used to compare our K-12 facility to other K-12 facilities throughout the country. We then receive a score based on the grading criteria outlined by Energy Star.

Out of those students, 2 lucky students will be drawn to receive not only 2 rodeo tickets, but a pair of  boots, hat and wranglers. So keep reading!

Sixth Grade Renaissance Fair

Sixth grade as well as the rest of the Brockbank family enjoyed a very special event on March 7, 2018: The first sixth grade Renaissance Fair was held as an all day event for students, parents, and teachers to enjoy! The festivities included the sixth graders dressing to represent a famous Renaissance person or country, an assortment of displays on their chosen countries and people, and two enjoyable Renaissance dances choreographed by a Nebo District dance specialist, Miss Rachel Kimball. She did a wonderful job and was extremely patient whilst teaching all three sixth grade classes both complex dances. “I learned a lot,” said Haya Swaidan, fourth grade, “And the dances were good, we liked them.”

 

Not only was there dancing and displays, but there were also tour guides who would bring groups of kids from their classes to the Renaissance countries. Countries included Spain, Portugal, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Poland, Switzerland, and England. Once a group was taken to a country, the one or two country representatives would tell about their land. They would also sign the group’s passports as the students listened to Renaissance figures talk about what role they played in the sixteenth century. “Okay, I liked one thing: the star stickers on my passport,” says Jerise Swaidan, kindergarten.

 

The walls were full of maps, flags, and fun facts. Sixth graders also did portraits of their Renaissance figure, or of themselves in the Renaissance, using oil pastel and other colorful material. They created their own coat of arms which included symbolic colors and animals that represented themselves. Both of these items were also hung on the walls. The students and teachers spent a great deal of time planning, preparing, and practicing to make the Renaissance fair come together. There were weeks of preparation and revision before any steps could be taken to do anything in the designated Renaissance area. But over all, the time consumed was worth all the work. The first Brockbank Renaissance fair will definitely be remembered by many.
