On April 1, we had an assembly from the Champions' Challenge Rodeo that is coming to Spanish Fork on Saturday, May 31.  The assembly was hosted by Randy Munns, the rodeo clown,  along with members of the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Royalty and members of the Rodeo Committee.  Randy Munns dressed up one of our students Cameron Rose, like a rodeo clown and taught him how to jump in the bull-fighting barrel.  He also taught Mr. Andersen what it was like in the barrel!  During the month of April we will be doing a Champions' Reading Challenge where the students will be eligible to win two tickets to the rodeo.  There will be two tickets available on each grade level for reading.  So lets READ READ READ!!!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!

After the third and final week of collecting "Pennies for Patients" to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Brockbank students brought in another $637.19 with a total of all three weeks of $2,029.72 . Brockbank's goal was to raise $1,000 and to teach students that each of them has the power to make a difference by bringing in their quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, so with the combined efforts of all the students we doubled our goal raising over $2,000. The money raised will be used to care for cancer patients and to help with research. The winning class for the third week was (again), Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson's fifth-grade class. Mrs. Dedrickson's class won the first and third weeks bringing in a total of $266.96 earning a silver pennant! Five classes brought in over $100 earning a Bronze Pennant- Mrs. Amberly Kariuki's afternoon class, Mrs. Lisa Bird's class, Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, Mrs. Kristel Peterson's class, and Mrs. JaNae Wilson's class.  Brockbank students can really make a difference!

Mr. Myles Peterson’s 6th grade class presented an extraordinary performance of Life in a Jar.  This student-produced drama began as a project for four 9th grade students from Kansas.  They discovered the story of a Polish Catholic woman named Irena Sendler who saved 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust.  The Kansas students researched Irena Sendler and wrote a script depicting her story. The story became so well-known because of these Kansas students that Life in a Jar has been performed over 285 times all across the United States, Canada, and Poland. Mr. Peterson’s class did an excellent job of portraying Irena Sendler’s story and message of love and heroism.  Well done 6th graders!
