Brockbank Elementary News - Mon, 01/29/2018 - 11:26pm

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Happy 100th Day of School!  We are so excited to celebrate 100 days of school!  Some of our classes celebrated this day by doing some fun activities,  counting to 100 and displaying some cool posters with 100 items arranged on them!

Science Fair: The Science Fair takes place on Tuesday, February 6th and is open to all Brockbank 5th and 6th graders. The fair will be open to parents and students from 10:00 -11:00 and 12:30 - 1:30.  Judging for those wishing to advance to the district level will begin at 9:30. Students should follow the guidelines they received from their teacher during SEP's. If there are any parents that can assist with judging, please contact your student's teacher for details.

Penny Wars:  Feb 20 – March 9
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 project on February 20th and go through March 9th.  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.  This war is for good and we will have a lot of fun.  Start earning money to make a difference.

Math Lab:  Just a reminder that we have our Math Lab opened in the mornings before school, at 8:30.  Any student is welcome to come and practice math facts, use the online REFLEX program, or get help with math assignments!

Keep collecting those Box Tops!

We invite you to LIKE us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as our own Brockbank website!  Follow us on Instagram--#Brockbankbest, #Lookatbrockbank, and #BrockbankBFF

We are so proud of our East Meadows Chess Club!  First of all, we got 4th place overall, out of over 20 schools! (They only had trophies for 1st-3rd for this one, which kind of bummed the kids.)  We are so proud because of what great sportsmanship these guys showed.  You didn't even know if they had lost because they were smiling so much.  It was cool to see them encourage each other and cheer each other on.  What great kids we have!  Thanks again for all the support we recieve!
