Johnny Appleseed Celebrations in Second Grade

Kathy Kelley, Sharilee McMullin

Second grade also had fun Johnny Appleseed celebrations this week! 

Mrs. Kelley's Class: We celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day on Friday.  We added 3 digits using apple seeds, read about apples, tasted apples, and made applesauce.  The students had a fun time while learning through reading, math, and science.

First grade celebrated Johnny Appleseed's birthday on Wednesday! They had a visit from Johnny Appleseed, himself! They also did a number of apple themed activities, including apple volcano science, bobbing for apples, apple art, peeling apples, and writing about how to cook applesauce and apple pie. They even got to eat homemade applesauce at the end of the day!

Reflections 2018

Melissa Nielsen

Reflections is an awesome program our school takes part in every year, where students can submit original works of art based on a certain theme. This year's Reflections theme is "Heroes Around Me." Students may create an original work of art from six categories: visual arts, photography, literature, music composition, dance choreography, and film production. Entries should be turned in to the office by October 17th. See the video link below, the attached flyer, or the information pages in the office for more details. We can't wait to see your entries!

Utah Opera Assembly


Some members of the Utah Opera came to our school today for an assembly! They taught us many different things about music and opera, and we also got to see some fun performances. Thank you, Utah Opera!
