Lead Singer, Brandon Flowers, & Ned Hansen The Killers band released their 11th annual Christmas single this month — a rendition of Bing Crosby’s, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”. This is a duet between lead singer, Brandon Flowers, from Payson, Utah, and his fourthgrade teacher in Nebo School District, Ned Humphrey Hansen. Brandon said, “That year, one teacher stood out from the rest. He didn’t just stand out from the rest, he sung out… On a frosty December morning, he explained to us the story of the old standard, ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’…” This is just another testament on how educators and staff can truly make a difference in a big way. You can buy the single for $1.99 from the album, “Don’t Waste Your Wishes”—The Killers.

Fifth Grade had the privilege of meeting with wonderful role models from Maple Mountain High School. They came to answer the students' questions about how drug use can impact a person's life in a very negative way. They passed on advice about choosing the best friends they can right now because of the impact it will have on each student in junior high and high school. The students laughed with them and had a twinkle in their eyes, looking forward to when they can be in high school learning new things that they can hardly imagine. It was a great last meeting

Wish Upon A Star - Message from our PTA

Hi Parents,

We know that with the holidays upon us, life can get crazy.  If you are thinking of getting your student's teacher a gift this year and wondering what they would like, we have made it EASY for you!  The PTA is once again sponsoring the Wish Upon a Star program.  We have asked teachers to let us know what things they need for their classrooms for the rest of the year.  Each teacher has a poster surrounded by tree ornaments outside their classroom door.  The ornaments have a specific item that the teacher could really use.  You or your student can choose an ornament with an item that you would like to supply for your teacher and then return the item to the teacher by December 16th.  That easy!

Look for the ornaments while you attend parent teacher conferences today.  If your teacher does not have their wishes out yet, feel free to ask them what they could use!

Thank you for your support of our teachers!

Integrating Movement into Learning

This past week 3rd-6th grade students and their teachers participated in the GAINS (Growing Arts in Nebo Schools) program.  The District Dance Specialist, Melanie Fillmore, has been visiting with students and teachers to help integrate more movement and into their day to day learning. They also worked on ways to use creative movement in their PE portion of the school day.

3rd, 4th, and 6th grade all enjoyed learning different kinds of locomotor movement. Locomotor movement is any kind of movement that takes you traveling through the space and is foundational to coordination skills. These grades were also introduced to the Braindance. The BRAINDANCE is a series of movement patterns that helps the brain to integrate and work more effectively.  

5th grade learned a folk dance from Colonial England times. We talked about how folk dance contributed to the society of that time.

Ask your student or your student's teacher for more information if interested.
