Goodbye Mrs. Oldham!

There has never been a Canyon with no Mrs. Oldham, and sadly she  will be leaving us! For students who have only attended Canyon, Mrs. Oldham has been their only librarian since kindergarten.  

Mrs. Oldham has been a librarian for 24 years, and at Canyon for 18 years, since it's been open.

She shared her love for books and stories, and inspired students to find information on research papers, find a fun picture book, or to simply escape with some non-fiction. She was very knowledgeable about all books, and also helped teachers find whatever they were looking for!

She always had fun lessons with the students that included videos, information about authors, art lessons and more!

Students and faculty alike are sad to lose such a wonderful librarian, and we wish her luck in the future!

“Hands On” Science Learning at Barnett Elementary

Barnett Elementary’s mission statement is: “Making THE difference in lifelong learning”  We are proud that over one hundred of our school’s students from K-6 entered our school’s science fair on February 10th.

Surprising to some, a science fair project is one of the best learning experiences a student can undertake.  Preparing a science fair project is an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or inquiry (also "hands-on" learning). It is a very effective instructional method and is recommended as a cornerstone of successful science teaching. Our society relies on science every day, and science fairs are a great way for students to become more knowledgeable about how the world around them works. Every citizen needs sufficient science literacy to make educated decisions about what he or she reads in the media, about health care, and about other every-day problems. Barnett students are proud to be “hands-on” learners and problem solvers!

The winners in the 5th and 6th grade division were:
Grand Prize - Adam Warner, 1st Place - Ethan Manuta, 2nd Place -Mark Peterson and Carson Caines, 3rd place - Quinn Christiansen, 4th place - Luis Sion.  

Our top 10 winners are eligible to advance to compete in the district science fair on February 24th.  Adam Warners project was “What gas station (or company of gas) gives us the best gas mileage?”, Ethan Manuta’s project was “Does decreasing the air pressure in a football make it easier to hande and catch?” just to name a few.

3-4 grade division winners: 1st place - McKenzie Mitchell, 2nd place - Kristen Harris, 3rd place - McKenzie & Katelyn Pugmire, 4th place - John Humphries,

K-2 grade division winners: 1st place - Tori Harris, 2nd place - Addison Pugmire, 3rd place - Taylor Humphries, 4th place - Abby Harris

All of our students did an amazing job and the caliber of projects get better every year. Congratulations to all the students who entered the science fair at Barnett!

In November the First Grade held their Literacy Night for all First Grade students and parents.  They had a remarkable turnout.  Parents were given tools to help improve their child's reading and writing.  After the mini classes, the students sang songs for their parents followed by a drawing for prizes.

All the students in attendance went home with a new book.  One student from each class won a backpack filled with school supplies, and one student from each class won a reading bench, made by Mr. Argyle and Mrs. Ellis, filled with books.

Who's Who Wednesday

Santaquin Elementary News - Wed, 02/18/2015 - 3:33pm

Mr. Kern was born in Fort Ord, California, which was an army base.  He enjoys hiking and going to movies.  One of his favorite movies is the recently released "Into the Woods".  His favorite color is aqua marine, and blueberries are one of his favorite foods to eat.

At Santaquin Elementary we all enjoy listening to Mr. Kern read.  I asked him to choose a favorite book.  If you know Mr. Kern that was a hard task because he has so many favorite books.  But he came up with "Out of the Dust" by Karen Heese and "Knuffle Bunny" by Mo Willems.

We sure appreciate having Mr. Kern at our school.  He always makes everyone feel important, and is the life of the party.  Thanks for all you do!

What do ski planes, penguins, and deserts have in common? ANTARCTICA! After studying the article, Life On the Ice, in the their Journeys books, 3rd Grade students were privileged to learn about the finer points of actually living in Antarctica from Dr. Byron Adams. Dr. Adams recently returned from his annual scientific adventure in Antarctica where he studies the "wildlife" a.k.a. nematodes. Dr. Adams encouraged his enthusiastic audience to always be full of wonder, ask questions, and search for answers. He also explained that everyone, regardless of race or gender, can be a scientist or explorer. Moreover, he encouraged the students to prepare now to answer the questions they come up with. The students sat spellbound for over an hour. Thank you Dr. Adams.
