A few odds and ends…

Hello everyone,

Over the last few days your child has been sent home with a few important papers.  The first one is the 4th grade science review topics.  They will be testing on these things in the next week or two, so it would be a good idea to have them refresh their memories on those things. Secondly, May 3 is Better World Day.  The 3/4 Community will be assembling hygiene kits for the Family Support Center in Brigham.  Our class has been assigned travel sized shampoo.  We need all donations by May 2. If you can donate more than one, that would be great! They must be new and unopened.

Here are the fliers that were sent home:


An exciting opportunity…

Hello Everyone!

On May 9, our class has been given the honor of singing at the Corrine City Celebration for the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike.  We will be the “opening act.” We will perform at 7:00 p.m. Parents will need to bring their children to the performance.  This is not a fieldwork situation. We will not be meeting at the school at all. I do not know all of the details yet as far as what to wear, etc.  I will let you know as soon as I can.

Calendar Pictures are DONE!

Oh my goodness, what a crazy whirlwind it has been getting our pictures done for the calendar.  Thank you so much for supporting your students with costumes.  We had plenty of costumes so that most people could be more than one character.  The kids worked hard and did an excellent job of working with our photographer.

Student Led Conferences begin tomorrow! If you haven’t made an appointment, please go to the scheduler on the Promontory website to schedule a conference. Just a friendly reminder…this is your student’s time to shine. If there are issues to bring up, please schedule another time to meet with me so we don’t take away from the positive environment that exists when students share their learning.

Tomorrow and Thursday are BOTH early out days and there is NO SCHOOL on Friday.


Here are a few sneak peaks at some of our calendar pictures. Enjoy!

Great Day out at the Golden Spike!

Thank you to everyone who helped transport students out to the Golden Spike today.  That was such a fun learning experience for the kids! I will try and post the photos on this site sometime this weekend.

Just a heads up….

We have extended the due date for the calendar costumes to March 15th.  Letters were sent home on Monday. If you haven’t seen it, check your kiddo’s backpack. Let me know if you have questions!!!!! I am more than happy to help you if you need ideas.

It’s Fieldwork Time Again!

On Friday, March 8th, our class will be visiting the Golden Spike National Monument.  This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Image result for golden spike national historic site

Railroad. What a great time to learn about it for our spring Expedition!  I will need parent volunteers to drive students.  Please let me know if you can help us out.  Fieldwork forms will be sent home today with your kiddos.


More drivers needed!

Good Morning,

Thanks for helping your student make sure they got their permission slips turned in for snowshoeing on Monday afternoon. I only have enough drivers for 19 of the 27 students that are going.  If you can help transport students, please let me know.  We will leave the school at 11:30 at be back by 2:45.  Thank you!

Simple machines and force and motion

Over the last week, we have been working on our science topics. We have learned about simple machines such as levers, pulleys, and inclined planes. We also learned about gravity, inertia, and force. To solidify these concepts, we had a couple of days to do some hands on activities.

Roller coaster day!

Students used pipe insulation and marbles to experiment with gravity and inertia to create their own rollercoasters. We had some pretty amazing designs.

Catapult day!!

Today the kiddos used rubber bands and craft sticks to make their own catapults. Their creation had to include a lever and a fulcrum. We ended by having a “punkin’ chunkin” contest (we used tape balls). Thanks Michelle Flynn and Kristi Bowles for helping with the madness!

Vocabulary Test on Friday

Good Morning!

On Friday, we will be having a vocabulary test.  The students copied the words from the board, but I am posting them here so they can practice at home. The words are related to force and motion. This week we are studying simple machines. Please help your student learn them. The link for the list is below. Please excuse my crooked writing, straight lines are not my strong point.
