We were so happy to have the Discovery Gateway Children's Museum come today to teach our fifth graders about chemical and physical changes. The program is called Reaction Time and is funded by our very own Utah State Legislature. Students were able to watch a fun presentation where the presenter lit different colors of fire! Changed liquids into different colors. Showed us what indigestion looks like! And talked about solids, liquids and gases. After the presentation each class was able to go to a lab where they had a hands on experience with chemical and physical changes! We are so happy to have had this awesome program at our school!

Pembroke which brought Utah Symphony musicians into the Salt Lake City public schools. With the great success of this project, by 1961 programming expanded to include all public schools in Salt Lake and Davis Counties. By the fall of 2016, all forty-one Utah school districts have experienced our programming, reaching more than 300 schools each year with professional arts and education programming. A.R.T.S., Inc. is a leading source of arts and education for the State of Utah, reaching more than 200,000 individuals annually. It is our goal to help a broad network of fine arts’ organizations to play an active role in children’s development. Working collectively we assist educators, parents, and communities to provide a teaching and learning environment, where children discover the joys of learning through the arts. A.R.T.S., Inc. provides Arts and Education programming that not only entertains and educates, but is an excellent support for the Utah State Core-Curriculum."

Brockbank fourth-graders went on a field trip to, This Is The Place Heritage Park. There students were able to take part in a ‘hands-on learning’ experience that complements the state curriculum for fourth-grade Utah History. Students participated in "life in Pioneer Times" which consisted of pushing a handcart. The students discovered what it was like to come West with a handcart.  They got to ride the train around the park and visit the Native American Village. The students learned about the 5 tribes that were in the Utah territory in 1847.  The Shoshone, Goshute, Paiute, Ute, and Navajo tribes all lived in this area.  They lived in caves, teepees, hogans, and wiki-ups.It was a fun field trip and the students really enjoyed it!

At the beginning of the year, each fifth grade class read the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio.  The students learned the importance of treating everyone with respect and "being kinder than necessary."  On Tuesday night, the fifth grade students and their families were all invited to go see Wonder together at the movie theater.  It was a great movie, with even greater company.

It was a WONDERful night for many Spanish Oaks 5th graders ...  The 5th grade classes all read Wonder as a read aloud and then planned a trip to enjoy the newly released movie together.  Students who were able to attend with their families joined the 5th grade teachers (Ms. Brown, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Sant) and Principal (Mrs. Brown) at the movies.  It was a WONDERful night enjoyed by all who attended!

Miss McKendrick's class loved learning about the brain through some hands-on science. Using the book "The Growth Mindset Coach", the class got into groups and put together their very own brain using Play-Doh. After each part was completed on their play-doh brain, they would test each other on the roles of each part: Pre-Frontal Cortex, Cerebrum, Cerebellum, Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Brainstem. Did you know your Amygdala helps you feel emotion? These kids do!

Barnett Bulldogs honored local Veterans in their Veterans Day Assembly on November 10. The Barnett Choir sang a series of songs that honored the Veterans. The whole school joined in on a song for the grand finale. After the assembly, Veterans went to classrooms as part of "Take a Veteran to School". They told stories, showed artifacts from their time in the service, and answered questions from the students. This is one of the most special days of the whole school year where we were able to meet fathers and mother, grandparents, uncles and aunts who serve and served our country.  Thank you to the men and women in the military for everything you do. We love you.
