Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him.
AddaLee Williams picked a strawberry for her turkey. She said on her paper, "I could be a strawberry. I could lay in the sun. "Sh Sh," said the turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a strawberry."
Stela Youd picked a cat for her turkey. She said, "I could be a cat. I could sit. "Meow Meow" said the turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a cat."
Stetson Parker picked a spider for his turkey. He said, "I could be a spider. I could hang. "Sh Sh", said the turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a spider."
Bridger Olson picked a lizard for his turkey. He said, "I could be a lizard. I could lay in the sun. "sh, sh" said the turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a lizard."
Students in Mrs. Wendy Dimond's kindergarten class made necklaces and hats for Thanksgiving.
Thank you, Superintendent Nielsen, for the visit ... Be Kind, Show Respect and Work Hard at Spanish Oaks!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Riverview kiddos have been writing what they are thankful for. There’s nothing more real than asking a student a serious question to see what their response will be. Kids don’t have to try very hard to be funny-they just are.
“I’m thankful for guys!…like Spiderman guys, like Superheroes!
“I’m thankful for my family and Thanksgiving and even you, teacher!.”
“I’m thankful for X-Box and everyone who brings food.”
After spending time with Riverview students, I have come up with an unconventional gratitude list.
- Smiles-I am thankful that I can visually see the happiness that happens every day. Smiles change moods. I am grateful to see the beauty of a child’s smile.
- Teeth-Dentist appointments, orthodontist appointments, lost teeth, loose teeth…all are regular occurrences at school. I am grateful for my choppers.
- Pizza and Chicken Alfredo-The lunch room is full of happy diners on pizza and alfredo chicken day.
- Hugs-A life without hugs would be a lonely life to me.
- Laughter-It cures heavy hearts and tired minds and sick bodies. It is contagious and happiness-inducing. I recommend it. Lots of it.
- You-I am grateful for this community. Riverview is a great place to learn and grow and seek inspiration and motivation and acceptance and love.
I want to wish all Happy Thanksgiving! There will be no school Nov. 22nd – 24th.
Food Drive-Cans for Kids
Riverview Afterschool program and Riverview Student Council are pleased to announce the eighth annual Food Drive service project. This service project will run until Wednesday, Dec. 20th, our goal is to BEAT last year’s total of 3,000 cans of food! The food will be donated to families in our school, Nebo Pantry, and the Utah Food Coalition.
The Nebo Pantry is for homeless and transient students in our district. The District currently has over 1,700 students in this situation.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students about service and being grateful for the things we have. All cans should be brought to your student’s classroom to be counted and recorded.
PLEASE make sure the cans have not EXPIRED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!! LET’S ALL WORK TOGETHER FOR A GREAT CAUSE!!

Monday, November 13, Brockbank Elementary had some very special visitors come to our school to honor Veteran's Day. We are so proud of all of our veterans and enjoy having them come and talk to us each year. This year Brockbank students welcomed the veterans to our school by waving American Flags and giving them high fives while fifth grade students sang. The veterans introduced themselves to the students and showed a slide show presentation. It was a very touching assembly reminding us all why veterans are so important and about all the sacrifices that they have made for us so that we can be free.
Brockbank is happy to announce the Bronco Best Students for October.

COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS
We have started our CCR's (College and Career Readiness Plans) with our 8th grade students. We will be calling students down to meet up with their parents and counselors. This is a great time for our students to start thinking about what they want to do in the future.
TERM 1 BY THE NUMBERS
Our current enrollment is 1254 students
902 students earned a spot on the honor roll. This is the highest number of student we have ever had! Last year, first term we 825 students earned that spot.
399 with 4.0 Academic Excellence
357 with 3.7 or above, High Honors
144 with 3.5 or above, Honors
Thank you to the students for their hard work and to all of the parents, teachers, and support staff that support them!
DRESS CODE REMINDER
The idea behind a dress code is that appropriate student dress and grooming promotes an effective learning environment free from unnecessary disruption or distraction. We are seeing an increase in jeans with holes above the knee. The school policy states “no torn pants above the knee”. We do not send students home for a dress code violation. If a student’s clothing or grooming interferes with the normal education process, he/she will be asked to change whatever is in question.
HALF-DAY ICE SKATING TRIP
Any 7th, 8th or 9th grader that has an “S” in citizenship is invited on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH --- 8:30am-11:30am
We will be ice skating at the Peaks Ice Arena in Provo! There is a $10 fee, which includes transportation, admission, and skates.
YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE AND TURN IN THE PERMISSION FORMS IN ORDER TO ATTEND! Sign up with Coach Denter today.
