Former Students Visit Brockbank

Fri, 09/29/2017 - 12:20pm

(more pictures available)

September 28, 1992, Mrs. Janice Nelson's third grade class buried a time capsule to be opened 25 years later. Student teacher at the time, Stephanie Richards was over the activity. The problem is no one expected that during the past 25 years changes would be made to the outside of the school and where the time capsule was buried is now a sidewalk. Custodian, Alan Clark tried to locate the time capsule with no luck.

  We apologize to the students from the 1992 third class that we couldn't open their time capsule as planned but a nice ceremony was held.. It was nice to have the principal, Mr. Ronald Bills, teacher, Mrs. Janice Nelson, and the student teacher, Mrs. Stephanie Richards from 1992 attend the ceremony along with 5 former Brockbank students.  

Current third grade students recited trivia from 1992 and told the audience what they thought might have happened to the time capsule. Students from the 1992 third grade class introduced themselves, told students some of their memories of school and what it was like when they were in third grade.

We are sorry to announce that we have not been able to locate the time capsule buried on Sept. 28, 1992. We have dug and dug. 25 years is a long time and things have changed here at Brockbank. We are still trying to find it but are having no luck in finding it. We apologize to the 3rd grade class of 1992. If you would still like to come tomorrow we are planning on having a small celebration.

We would like to honor a very special lady that was part of our Brockbank family for over 23 years. Marie Hansen was a foster grandma in Mrs. Marcy Noorda's first-grade class and before that was in first grade with Mrs. Elaine Burnham. Marie was a remarkable lady, at 94 years old. She enjoyed crocheting, tying quilts, and collecting nutcrackers (which she loved showing off) she had 326 nutcrackers.  At school Grandma Hansen listened to students read count, do arithmetic and helped them with  their classroom centers. Marie was honored in the Deseret News in July of 2016. She was the oldest and longest-serving volunteer with the Utah County Foster Grandparent Program. Marie loved kids having raised 5 of her own, she had 19 grandchildren, 48 great grandchildren with one on the way, 8 step great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Marie was very dedicated and loved working with all the first graders throughout her years at Brockbank. We are going to miss her very much!

Fifth Grade Students Enjoy Learning About Science

Fifth grade students in Miss Sabrina Huyett's class recently got to do a science experiment with Miss Huyett's dad, Mr. Steve Huyett. He is a chemist and he taught the students the scientific method of using the "methylene blue" experiment. 

 The blue bottle experiment as it is called, is a chemical reaction. An aqueous solution containing glucose, sodium hydroxide, methylene blue and some air is shaken in a closed bottle; it turns from colorless to blue and then decolorizes again after a while. With further shaking, the cycle can be repeated many times. The students really enjoyed learning about science!

Brockbank Kindergarten Students Learn Importance of Doing Their Very Best

(more pictures available)

Kindergartners in Mrs. Tara Farr's class recently read "The Tortoise and the Hare".  They talked about being a good sport and not giving up and that they can do hard things. As they raced the turtles in class they discussed the importance of being a good cheerleader to each other no matter if they win or lose. They also talked about how the turtle was able to persevere and keep trying until he reached his goal. This activity helped them realize that as a class they are a team and they support each other and encourage each other to do their very best even when it may be hard!

Brockbank Sixth Grade Students Enjoy Visit from Loveland Living Planet Aquarium

Brockbank sixth graders had a wonderful time learning about ecosystems with a visit from Loveland Living Planet Aquarium.  The Aquarium has furthered its mission to inspire students to explore, discover and learn about Earth’s diverse ecosystems and has launched a new traveling program, the Eco-Van, for sixth-grade students.

The Eco-Van program demonstrates how the stability of populations is affected by changes to an ecosystem.  Our sixth graders now have a better knowledge of how each factor in an ecosystem can affect many others.  We had some 'mixed reactions' from our visit! Lauren and Lora taught us about ecosystems. Everyone got to touch a hedgehog, armadillo, cockroach, and python! We had so much fun and learned a lot! Thank you Loveland Living Planet Aquarium for visiting our Brockbank Elementary sixth graders!

Hello, Brockbank Families!

 It was great to see the skies a bit more clear of smog and smoke!  We hope you are aware that we watch the air quality reports and keep students in, if the air quality is poor.  We had our first BFF (Brockbank Friends and Family) Group today!  The students met and were assigned buddies.  That is my favorite part, seeing the older students take care of the younger students!  The students participated in a couple of activities that helped us get to know each other better, and also to teach us how to work together.  Our focus this year will be on the principles of our B.E.S.T. mission statement! Parents, we are still having parents and students cross the road in the middle of the road and not at the intersection after school.  PLEASE use the intersection where the crossing guard is.  We have students watch you and think it is all right to cross the road on their own.  We need to watch out for each other and keep our students safe.  Thanks for your help! District Minimal Day:  On September 18th, the students will be dismissed early so that teachers can attend school training.  Bus students will leave at 11:30, when the buses come, and walking students will be dismissed at noon.  We appreciate your support for these types of training. PTA Help:   PTA does so many great things for our school! Your contributions help fund so many wonderful projects for our students!  Parent helpers inside the classrooms, as well as at home, make such a big difference for our students!  The PTA will meet TOMORROW, at 2:00.  You are welcome to come and be a part of a great team! 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 Always remember to keep saving Box Tops!  Those little things add up in a big, big way! Thanks for being the BEST! Mrs. Nelson Brockbank Bulletin:9/12-DARE begins for 5th Grade students9/18-Minimal Day-students are dismissed at noon10/5-Vison Screening10/19-20-Fall Break

Friday, September 8, Brockbank students enjoyed a fun eventful "Pop into Reading Party". It was for those students who read more than 880 minutes over the summer. We are so proud of all of their efforts and hard work! The majority actually read well over a thousand minutes. There were relays, a dancing party, and all kinds of bubble and balloon activities. Besides "popping" activities there were tasty treats, popcorn, pop, and pop rocks. The students really enjoyed it!  We are looking forward to increasing the number of participants next year. Summer reading definitely makes a difference! Plan on joining the fun next summer. GO BRONCOS!!

Hello, Brockbank Families!

What a great beginning to the BEST year ever!  We had a great first week and we are ready for many more!  Thanks for having your child ready each day, on time, and with good attitudes!  Brockbank is such a wonderful place to be!

We want to welcome all of our new kindergarten students to school tomorrow!  We look so forward to each of them coming to Brockbank!  It will be a very special day!

Marquee:  We are thrilled with our new marquee and appreciate your support in having your child bring in Box Tops!  We had a special ribbon cutting ceremony on the first day of school and it was fun to have all of our students be a part of that celebration!  (We are still working out the bugs in learning how to work the marquee, and we plan to have the lights dim at nighttime.  Thanks so much for your patience!) Please continue to send your Box Tops, as you can see the wonderful things they can provide for our school!  At the end of last year, your child was given a sheet of paper to fill up with Box Tops.  Please send those sheets back to school!  We will start collecting them again!  Thanks for your support!

T-Shirts:  If you would like to order your child a Bronco T-shirt, we will take orders until Friday.

Picture Day;  Picture Day will be Thursday, Sept. 7th, all day long.  Please watch for picture packets to come home! 

Pop Into Reading Celebration: We are hoping that your child read all summer long and kept track of his/her reading on the summer POP INTO READING Challenge!  Help your child remember to bring in his/her reading calendar from summer and turn it into the office.  We are planning our party on Sept. 8th!

As you know, we have a new theme and mission statement this year!  We hope you were able to get our parent letter at the Open House, along with the school magnet.  If you didn’t, please come and get them in the office.   The letter explains some safety policies that we want to make sure you know about.  PLEASE go over them with your child.  We want your child to be safe coming and leaving school.
