It is always more fun to read with a buddy!  Once a week, fourth graders visit their kindergarten reading buddies.  Kindergartners look forward to hearing stories read to them by their buddy, and fourth-graders absolutely enjoy reading to them.  Its hard to tell just who enjoys the experience more; pretty sure it's a win-win for both.

Starting this week, we will spotlight a few teachers on our website to help you get to know them! 

Kristi Suguturaga, or more commonly known as "Mrs. Sugu" is our first spotlight teacher! She is one of our fabulous first grade teachers. She has been married for 11 years and has 5 kids, some of whom attend Cherry Creek. Kristi went to BYU-Hawaii and loved spending hours of time in the art studio. She loves endless days on the beach, biking, yoga, and did you know she can touch her nose with her tongue? Mrs. Sugu says she loves Cherry Creek because the students are "just the coolest kids to be around!" Her favorite teacher gift she's ever received was a hand drawn picture of a unicorn. Thanks, Mrs. Sugu for helping Cherry Creek be a great place!

Brockbank Bulletin

Brockbank Elementary News - Mon, 09/12/2016 - 10:04pm

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Another great week is ahead of us!  Tomorrow we will be having our BFF activity.  This year we are talking about a “Growth Mind Set,” and how we can strengthen our brains and learn new things, even if it takes time.  After school tomorrow,  ask your child what the power of YET means.  We hope to have a few articles and other information for you on the Growth Mindset, so that you can be involved with this important concept!

Please watch for the PTA envelopes that will come home with your child.  These envelopes are for you to sign-up for PTA.  When your child returns the envelope he/she will get a treat from his/her teacher. Also, even if you don't want to participate with the PTA, signing up will help give our school a voice. Thanks so much!

Our school tee shirts have been distributed, so please check your child’s backpack if you ordered one.  Please encourage your child to wear his/her shirt, or the school colors every Friday!  We have a cool bronco trophy for the class that has the most students wearing school colors!  Thanks to Amy Engle for helping with the tee shirts.  She does have a few extra shirts if you didn’t order one.

We are 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 Chick-fil-A school night.  Last year, you may remember that we partnered with Zupas for our family nights.  We earned over $1000.00 that helped supply our classrooms with Chromebooks, Kindle Fires, and IPads. This year we have partnered with Chick-fil-A and hope for another great year!  We appreciate your support so much!

We are having quite a few people park their cars along 300 West at the end of the day.  PLEASE do not park and get out of your cars along this road.  This is a pick-up zone and cars need to be continually moving forward. 

Just a reminder that next Monday, Sept. 19th, will be our minimal day, which means that the students will be dismissed at noon.

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

Thanks for your support!

Mrs. Nelson

Brockbank Bulletin:

Sept. 19-Minimal Day-students will be dismissed at noon.

Brockbank is excited to participate again this year with the character ed program called BFF Groups. We will be working together to create unity in our school! BFF stands for "Brockbank Family Friends" and our pledge is "We Stand Up for Our Friends!" It is exciting to see students making friends with students from different grade levels and to see the "big buddies" go pick up the "little buddies" to go to their groups. The groups meet once a month and cover a different situation that students might encounter at school or in life. Last month the students were divided into their groups and participated in activities which enabled them to get to know each other. They each signed the pledge "We Stand Up for Our Friends". Students look forward to getting to meet in their BFF Groups each month and making new friends..
