On the night of May 4, sixth grade hosted a "Star wars" night.  It was a great activity to complete our week of science and space studies.  Students came to the school from 8:00-10:00 pm to enjoy Nachos, treats, music and a little football.  When it became dark enough, students were divided into three groups and went to stations designed for real-world exploration of the night sky.  Station One had students looking through telescopes at Jupiter.  Station Two had students looking for and identifying constellations in the spring sky. Station Three had students looking at the moon with binoculars and discussing the maria "dark marks" and the rippling effect of the craters.  Students had a fantastic time!

Teacher Spot Light Of The Week-6th Grade Team

Today we are spot lighting our Hobble Creek 6th grade team. Every student at Hobble Creek looks forward to their 6th grade year and the teacher they will get. Since all the teachers are equally fantastic it is never a dissappointment and all 6th graders enjoy being king of the hill so to speak! This being said, we are so sad to say good bye to Mrs. Snow, Mrs. Nissen and Mrs. Smith. Each are being taken in different directions next year and they will be missed. Mrs. Corfield will be staying! Yay!! Here are some interesting fact on all of them.

Mrs. Lisa Nissen says, "I'm a California native who feels like flip flops should be the only shoe to wear.  I have four children and all of them are Hobble Creek Hawks.  I love this school and wanted to give my two cents to the community by teaching.  I've been teaching sixth grade for seven years.  I graduated with my bachelors in elementary education in 1995 from BYU.  I love spending time with my husband and kids.  Some of my favorite trips include four-wheeling up at the Nissen family ranch in southeast Idaho." Mrs. Alisa Corfield says, "I have enjoyed teaching here at Hobble Creek for the past 2 years. Previously, I taught for 6 years in the Provo School District.  I grew up in Provo and now live in Springville.  I enjoy watching my students and own children learn and grow.  I am a BYU fan and enjoy traveling to exciting places with my family.  I have been married for 24 years and have 3 children.  I am excited to be returning to Hobble Creek next year." Mrs. Jayme Smith has taught sixth grade at Hobble Creek Elementary for all nine years of her teaching career. She has taught an estimated 250 kids over the years, and can still remember all of their names and loves hearing from them as they have grown older! Sadly, this will be her last year teaching at Hobble Creek so she can go and be "mom" instead of Mrs. Smith.  She is sad to leave, but is excited to start this new chapter of her life!" Some of Mrs. Smiths favorites are the color Black, Harry Potter, football and soccer. She loves to sleep in and would love to learn to hula dance. She likes all things cheese and going on vacation with her hubbie. Mrs. Alison Snow says she has enjoyed her time teaching children at Hobble Creek for the last 7 years.  She will be leaving Hobble Creek this year and wants to thank all who have been so kind and helpful throughout all the years spent here.  "It has been a joy to learn and grow with my students.  I will cherish many memories of amazing times had with awesome families, students, & faculty at Hobble Creek.  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!" Mrs. Snow likes the colors blue and black, Harry Potter Illustrated edition, volleyball and vanilla cake. She loves soup, is really good at baking and cooking, loves to travel and visit new places. She would like to learn how to make blueberry pie and loves when people are nice to each other. Thank you to all of our 6th grade teacher who really have a hard job and work really hard each day to make sure the 6th graders will be ready to leave the nest!

Retirement Open House Held Honoring Craig Draper

Thursday, May 4, an open house was held at Brockbank Elementary honoring Mr. Craig Draper. Craig has been the custodian at Brockbank for the past 10 years.
 Him and his wife live in Payson and have two sons, two daughters, and seventeen grandchildren.  His wife, Annette, is the librarian at Wilson Elementary in Payson. Craig likes golfing, horse racing, and watching his grandkids play softball, baseball, and basketball. Besides Payson, Craig has also lived in Spanish Fork, Salem, and Hurricane. When Craig was young his family had race horses and he helped to train them. Before coming to Brockbank, Craig worked at Geneva Steel for 32 years, was unemployed for 2 years, and was the custodian at Spanish Fork Junior High and Payson Junior High. Craig's job was not always easy and we appreciate all that he did to keep our school clean! Cleaning bathroom messes, the lunchroom after lunch, and throw-ups is never a fun job but he never complained (at least not a lot) and was always willing to lend a helping hand. We wish Craig the best in his retirement and will miss him very much!

The fourth graders had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the Santaquin Museum and to learn a little bit about where they live.  Looks like they got into a little trouble while there since many of them are "Wanted."  Be on the lookout for them.  Looks like there's a great reward if you find some of those fourth graders!

Lynn Smith moved to Santaquin in 1977 with her husband, and they moved into his family house. She served on the Zoning, Planning and Variance committee. She was on the Library board, and active in the Santaquin Theater. During this time she had eight children, attended UVU, and earned an associate’s degree. She worked part time for the Post Office for three years, and at the same time worked at Santaquin Elementary as a skills coach and office technician. She was hired as the full time secretary, and has held that position for the past 18 years. She has worked with principals Kim Barlow, Scott Carson, Rodger Bushman, Susan Huff, Rob Keddington, and Chad Argyle. She has enjoyed working at Santaquin Elementary School and getting to know many of Santaquin's families and loving their children.

After raising 8 of her own children, Lynn now loves being Grandma to 20, soon to be 21 grandchildren. Grandma's house is the favorite place to be for all her sweet grandchildren. Lynn will both miss and be greatly missed at the Elementary School. Her family is excited to get more time with Grandma, and she is looking forward to spending more time with her husband, Dave.
