Hello, Brockbank Families!

I hope you are enjoying all the things that springtime brings!  I love the blue sky and sunshine, and the green grass and tulips that are popping up!  It’s a beautiful time of year! 

Parents, this time of year is especially busy, as you well know!  Please read the bulletin carefully!  I think every day in May has a scheduled event!  We are excited as we begin to wind down the school year and have such special activities!

Track Meets:  Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be having our Track Meets for grades 3-6.  All the track meets will be at the Spanish Fork High School football field.  Here are the dates for those meets:
April 24-3rd Grade
May 1-4th Grade 
May 8-6th Grade
May 15-5th Grade
Please make sure your child has water, comfortable clothing, good running shoes and a jacket.  

Ms. Jensen’s Science Fair: We are looking forward to Ms. J’s class’ Science Fair!  This will be Friday, the 27th from 1:30-2:30.  This should be a lot of fun and we are excited to see what her class has to share!  

PTA Carnival:  We are so excited for our PTA school carnival that will be April 30th, from 5:00-8:00.  PRE-SALE FOR WRIST BANDS WILL BE WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND MONDAY, BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL!  Wrist bands will be sold for $7.00.  The night of the carnival the cost will be $10.00.  The wrist bands will let you participate in all the activities, including bounce houses, a dunk tank, fire trucks, pony rides, a train ride, and balloon art.   Food will be sold separately and includes pizza, nachos, cotton candy, snow cones, and drinks.  There will also be a bake sale!  More information will be coming home this week!  

Year-End SAGE Testing:  April 9th will be the beginning of our SAGE Testing in grades 3-6.  Teachers will be testing over the course of several weeks.  Your child will not be testing every day, however, it is imperative that he/she is at school, whether his/her class is reviewing and/or testing.  If your child is going to be absent during this testing period, please notify your child’s teacher so he/she can make arrangements for alternate days of testing.  First and Second grades will be testing April 23-May 11th, and the Kindergarten Assessment will be May 21-25.  

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!

PTA:  Parents, we need your help!  We need more parents to get involved with PTA!  This is such a great organization and the PTA does so much for our students, but we need all the help we can get!  We know it takes a village to raise a child, and PTA makes it possible to help make this happen!  PTA volunteers are there to support students make good progress with their academics, with activities, with needed items for our school, and with support for families.  Please come be a part of our PTA!  Contact Brenda Dudley for more information with how you can help!

On Friday, April 20, kindergarten students at Brockbank Elementary entertained their parents and grandparents with a fun program. They showed them what they have learned this year by each student memorizing a small speaking part, singing songs and watching a fun slide show. The students worked really hard practicing and performing this program and all of them did a great job!

Sixth Grade Renaissance Fair

Sixth grade as well as the rest of the Brockbank family enjoyed a very special event on March 7, 2018: The first sixth grade Renaissance Fair was held as an all day event for students, parents, and teachers to enjoy! The festivities included the sixth graders dressing to represent a famous Renaissance person or country, an assortment of displays on their chosen countries and people, and two enjoyable Renaissance dances choreographed by a Nebo District dance specialist, Miss Rachel Kimball. She did a wonderful job and was extremely patient whilst teaching all three sixth grade classes both complex dances. “I learned a lot,” said Haya Swaidan, fourth grade, “And the dances were good, we liked them.”

 

Not only was there dancing and displays, but there were also tour guides who would bring groups of kids from their classes to the Renaissance countries. Countries included Spain, Portugal, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Poland, Switzerland, and England. Once a group was taken to a country, the one or two country representatives would tell about their land. They would also sign the group’s passports as the students listened to Renaissance figures talk about what role they played in the sixteenth century. “Okay, I liked one thing: the star stickers on my passport,” says Jerise Swaidan, kindergarten.

 

The walls were full of maps, flags, and fun facts. Sixth graders also did portraits of their Renaissance figure, or of themselves in the Renaissance, using oil pastel and other colorful material. They created their own coat of arms which included symbolic colors and animals that represented themselves. Both of these items were also hung on the walls. The students and teachers spent a great deal of time planning, preparing, and practicing to make the Renaissance fair come together. There were weeks of preparation and revision before any steps could be taken to do anything in the designated Renaissance area. But over all, the time consumed was worth all the work. The first Brockbank Renaissance fair will definitely be remembered by many.

We are proud to let you know that our school was a recipient of the ENERGY STAR CERTIFICATION!  This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation.  Our Nebo School District average score was 99!  We want you to know that we are “energy aware,” here at Brockbank and do our best to conserve energy!

Parents, this time of year is especially busy, as you well know!  Please read the bulletin carefully!  I think every day in May has a scheduled event!  We are excited as we begin to wind down the school year and have such special activities!

Recently students in Ms Jensen’s class held a Gallery of Great Americans. The students chose a great American to research. They drew pictures and memorized facts. They dressed up as their great American and had their parents and students from other classes visit and learn about their great American.

Alan Clark Classified Employee of the Year

Mon, 03/19/2018 - 10:17am

Brockbank is happy to spotlight our Horace Mann classified employee of the year, Alan Clark.  

Alan is our head custodian. He has been here for almost a year. Alan and his wife live in Spanish Fork and have 3 daughters and one son. All of his children attended elementary school at Brockbank, his youngest daughter is in first grade.  Alan likes hunting, camping, traveling, going to MLB games, church sports, watching his girls dance and play the violin, and watching his son play high school baseball and football. He likes watching college football, his favorite team is the University of Notre Dame. Alan also enjoys snuggling with his family in the basement and watching a good movie. Some of his favorites are the color white, chocolate covered peanuts, steak and potatoes, listening to any old country music, the book, "American Sniper" by Chris Kyle, the movie, "Sandlot", and eating at Ruby River. His favorite vacation destination is Oceanside, California. Something not everyone knows about him is that he has 3 brothers and no sisters, and likes to take rides to Lake Shore so he can smell the fresh cut alfalfa. Before coming to Brockbank Alan was the head custodian at Salem Elementary School for 16 years.  

Teachers wrote, "Alan Clark has been such a great addition to Brockbank Elementary. Alan is always willing to help teachers and staff out. He works tirelessly to keep our school running in tip top shape. The students love him and you can tell how well he works with them anytime you walk by the lunch room. Whether it is helping us out or singing in his spare time, we are grateful to have Alan around! Our school would not be the same without him!"  

Congratulations Alan!
