Elementary Career Day a Huge Success
Brock Elementary had Career Day on Friday, October 10th. Twenty-four presenters came into the classrooms, Kindergarten-5th grades, and talked for 25 minutes about their jobs. They stressed the importance of higher education, good work ethic, good character, and getting along with peers, as well as explaining what they do at their jobs. All but one of the presenters was a parent or grandparent of one or more of our elementary students. Teachers all said that the presenters were amazing and that the kids really enjoyed the day. Thank you to all the presenters and our elementary staff for making our 2014 Elementary Career Day so successful! Please click on the link below for pictures from the Career Day.

Vietnam Veterans Assembly at BHS
Brock High School had some very special guests on Friday, October 10th. Terry Garlock of Peachtree City, Georgia, and several other Vietnam veterans shared their knowledge and experiences of the war. Mr. Garlock and the others were all helicopter pilots during the Vietnam conflict. After being shot down, Terry was rescued by John Synowsky of Brock along with his crew. The group presented their story to all the juniors and seniors. The students learned about why the Vietnam War started, the politics of the time, what made it controversial and the sacrifices made by so many brave Americans who served. Plans for a Veterans Day Assembly in November, 2015 involving all of Brock's campuses is underway. These veterans along with our other Brock community veterans will be heard and honored.

A Year of “Firsts”
2014-2015 is a year of “Firsts” for Brock ISD; first football game in the new stadium, first UIL football district competition, first football homecoming, and the first opportunity of a possible football post season berth. It is certainly easy to overlook another “First”. Though small in number, The Mighty Eagle Marching Band made its debut this season and, not surprisingly, has produced a show using a series of intricate diagonal movements that lends itself to higher scores at UIL marching competitions, and thus UIL Lone Star Cup points. According to Corey Daniel, Band Director, “It’s an exciting time: the students are excited, the parents are excited. It is a fun time to be at Brock. We feel we are putting a quality product on the field.” The Brock ISD looks forward to many more performances at half time from these amazing students.
Continuing a Tradition of Excellence
The Brock ISD earned 6th place in the Lone Star Cup this year. This is the sixth year in a row that the district has earned a spot of 6th place or higher having received the coveted Lone Star Cup championship trophy twice. With two new programs at Brock High School that are a part of the Lone Star Cup competition, football and band hope to contribute to the school’s Lone Star Cup success in 2014-2015. The future looks bright for Brock ISD! Click here for the final 2013-2014 Lone Star Cup results.
