KIDS have the power to make a positive difference.  Please join the Kid Power committee at Brockbank Elementary to change the world.  Our project this year is to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.  This is the type that mostly affects children.  There are children in our school that deal with this disease.

Each grade will bring money to donate. All paper and silver coins in their cans will count for that grades total.  All the pennies put in that grade level can, will subtract from their total.  So put pennies in another classes can to stop them from beating your grade.  Put the silver and paper money in your class can to increase your total.  This is called a Penny War.  Our penny war will help find a cure for juvenile Diabetes.

We will start our penny war on February 20 and go through March 9 .  The grade level with the heaviest can on Feb 23 will get to have a dance party.  The grade level with the heaviest can on March 2 will get to run someone through their whip cream gauntlet.  The grade level that raises the most money by March 9 will get to have a flour bomb war. Start earning money to make a difference.

Congratulations to Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson for receiving "Brockbank's Teacher of the Year". Alexandra teaches fifth grade at Brockbank. She and her husband live in Spanish Fork. They have three daughters, one son, and four grandchildren (with one more on the way). 

 Alexandra is an awesome teacher. She loves teaching and it shows. She goes the extra mile in her teaching. She has a great sense of humor and makes learning fun! Her theme days are talked about by former students years after being in her class.  In her spare time Alexandra loves shopping, making homemade cards, watching her son run track and cross country, but most of all spending time with her family! She combines two of her loves by shopping for her grandkids!  At Brockbank Alexandra is considered our "Christmas Elf". She is obsessed with Christmas including watching all the Hallmark Christmas movies.  Alexandra has been teaching for 33 years, 22 of those years here at Brockbank. She also taught for 11 years at Brookside before coming to Brockbank. She has taught first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades and for nine years she helped students as a reading recovery teacher. She is a great teacher and so fun to work with!  She is retiring at the end of the school year and she will be greatly missed!

Discovery Gateway came to the school and taught us about chemical reactions. The presenter did several experiments that showed us examples of chemical and physical changes. Each class had a session of their own where they were able to conduct experiments and determine if their reaction was physical or chemical. Check out live videos on our Facebook page.
