Brockbank fifth-grade students as part of their D.A.R.E. program taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt have been learning several lessons about drugs and ways to avoid the many influences in their lives that might lead them down dangerous paths. One of the fun activities fifth-graders got to do was to see Officer DeWitt's patrol car and see all the equipment that he uses to do his job. He showed them how some of it works and how he uses it in his job. Students have really learned a lot this year and are looking forward to graduating from D.A.R.E.

Hello, Brockbank Families!

We hope you had a wonderful Fall Break!  It was a perfect weekend to do something special and I hope you got around to some of the fun Fall activities!

Thanks to all those who came to our Dads and Doughnuts morning!  We had a wonderful turnout and we appreciate you coming!  We also want to thank the PTA for their hard work to get that ready for us! 

SEP SIGN UPS:  If you have NOT signed up for SEP Conferences, please contact your child’s teacher!  We look forward to seeing you this Thursday to celebrate your child’s accomplishments! 

Book Fair: Our PTA Book Fair will be scheduled from Oct. 23rd-26th.  It is open each day from 8:15-8:45, 11:30-12:30, 3:00-3:15.  The night of SEP Conferences, it will be open all evening. We appreciate your support for the Book Fair, and appreciate all the hard work the PTA does in getting this ready! 

Box Tops:  Please remember to send Box Tops with your child this week!  Our goal is to bring in 4000 by Friday!  The top 2 classes that get the most Box Tops will get a reward!

Halloween: We will be having our Halloween Parade at 9:00.  The Ghosts and Ghouls will be walking around the outside of the school!  Please remember that nothing gory or bloody, or any type of weapon is allowed with the costumes or face painting. Masks are allowed only for the parade and not in class.

District Survey:  
Dear Parent:

Nebo School District sincerely appreciates your support of Nebo School District and the opportunity to work together with you to provide an exceptional education for our students. We would appreciate your input on the Bond Survey before October 31. Please go to www.nebo.edu to begin the survey.

Nebo School District is in the initial planning process for a Bond Election to be held next year on November 6, 2018. Bonding is the primary method school districts use to construct new schools and meet other facility priorities. Bond money cannot be used for salaries and benefits.

Based on previous community feedback of wanting to move to the middle school model, Nebo School District plans to ask patrons to approve a $298 million dollar bond in November 2018. This tax-rate-neutral (no tax rate increase) bond will be used for:

1.   Building three new middle schools for students in sixth and seventh grade. These middle schools will be located within the boundaries of Salem Hills High, Springville High, and Maple Mountain High. As the new middle schools are completed, Mt. Nebo Junior High and Diamond Fork Junior High will become middle schools;

2.   Rebuilding Payson High, Spanish Fork High, and Springville High; and

3.    Making improvements to existing buildings and sites. It is estimated that approximately $10 million dollars of bond funds will be focused on upgrades and improvements.

The Nebo School Board's decision on which projects to include will rely on public input and recommendations from parent committees.

In accordance with state law, the Nebo School Board will finalize all plans prior to the 2018 Bond Election so the voting public will know the specific plans before voting. In the coming months, please continue to look for additional bond information at www.nebo.edu and in meetings held throughout Nebo School District.

Again, Nebo School District sincerely appreciates your input and support of Nebo School District. Please go to www.nebo.edu to begin the survey.

Recently the entire sixth-grade participated in a Battle of the Greek Gods. This was an all-day activity at Swenson park where the students rotated and participated in many team-building activities. Each rotation included a task that required students to use strategies and work together to solve a problem. Brockbank sixth-grade teachers and students want to thank all the parents for their support and help! The students could not have had such a great experience without them! Many parents were able to come and help facilitate the activities as well as help with preparations ahead of time. Each activity was named to connect with Greek Mythology. Zeus’ Challenge obstacle course. Catch Hermes capture the flag. Demeters Towers building the tallest tower as groups. Chariot Races & Trial of Athena, trolley races, team activities. Olympic Events discus, javelin, shot put. Trojan War Escape Human-sized spider web. The culminating event was the much anticipated "Flour Bomb War." The students had a great time throwing flour bombs at each other and coming home covered in the white powdery flour. Many students commented that this was one of the most memorable field trips ever. The sixth-grade Battle of the Greek Gods is becoming a tradition that future students will look forward to when they are in sixth grade.
