Friday, February 7, the junior high schools held their job shadow day. Seventh-graders had the opportunity to go to work with a parent or someone and job shadow them for the day. Brockbank was lucky to have several students come to our school and do their job shadow. McKinley Harrison and Averi Higginson from Spanish Fork Junior High came and helped in the office at Brockbank. Luke Jensen came and helped his mom, Mrs. Rebecca Jensen in computers, Kylee Crook helped her mom, Mrs. Louise Crook in second grade, Allison Wilson and Jentri Rozmea helped Mrs. Kristel Peterson and Mrs. JaNae Wilson in sixth grade, and Noah Runolfson helped his mom, Mrs. Janna Runolfson in first grade. It was fun to have these former students come and help out and hopefully they learned something about working in a school.

Reading Superbowl

It was a battle of the books as Mrs. Sorensen's class collided in  a Reading Superbowl that was held for two weeks leading up to the real Superbowl last weekend. The class was divided into two teams, the Broncos and the Seahawks.  Students read each night and turned in their minutes on a football the following day.  Whichever team had the most minutes read the night before, scored a touchdown for their team. It was a nailbiting event as the score went back and forth and ended up being a close game.  In the end the Broncos ended up winning by 1 touchdown. It was a happier outcome for these Broncos than the Denver Broncos last week.   

We are proud of the effort of both teams as the class synergized together and read over 7,200 minutes!  Students who participated and turned in the required number of footballs were awarded a superbowl ring.  Great job Mrs. Sorensen's class!

Bike Safety at Taylor

Taylor Elementary News - Mon, 02/10/2014 - 1:06pm

The students and staff at Taylor Elementary were favored with an assembly put on by Rich Wieber and his associates, Justin and Eric.  As part of a stunt group, these men demonstrated how to ensure a bike is safe to ride as well as finding a perfect sized helmet.  The stunt group also talked with students about how practicing and having a good friend group is essential in order to reach goals.   Students were taught it is important also to keeping positive thoughts and stay clear from harmful substances. A favorite part of the assembly is when the stunt group jumped over Mr. Richins, Mr. Lowe and Mr. Hansen!   Thank you to Rich Wieber and his group for visiting our school!

Taylor Elementary's preschool students in Ms. Norma Goddard and Mrs. Susan Goble's classes have been learning about building. They learned about different jobs, tools and equipment that can be used to make large structures.  Students made their own buildings at home and created a small town together.  Local town favorite, Bob "The Builder" Provstgaard, visited the preschool students and brought a large backhoe with him to show all the neat things it can do.  "Bob the Builder" even delighted the classes by letting students wear his hard hat!  Thanks to Taylor's preschool teachers as well as Bob Provstgaard for making building come alive for these kids!

On January 17th, the fourth grade students had a blast at the annual fourth grade Rendezvous.  The Rendezvous celebrates excellent student behavior during term two, where students worked hard to earn 'beaver skins'.  Students enjoyed learning all about Utah's Mountain Men.  Students were able to spend their beaver skins at various stations, including games, a Mountain Man photo booth, and a trading post.  The fourth grade teachers are especially grateful to the Rymer family for loaning us the beautiful furs students were able to use for the photo booth. All fourth graders had a 'skookum' time!

The sixth graders and a select few fifth graders participated in the annual science fair on Friday, February 7. Students had been working on the scientific process in class and were able to apply those principles as they spent a month preparing for the fair. All students were able to choose their own topic, usually something of interest to them, do some research, and text their hypothesis. There was a great turn out of parents, family and fellow students at the walk through of the science fair. Ten participants including some partnerships were awarded medals for their high scores by volunteer judges, who we appreciate greatly, and will be moving on to the district science fair. Thank you all students and parents and judges who helped us make this day memorable. See our Cherry Creek Facebook page for all the pictures.

Students at Orchard Hills enjoyed the Netsmart Assembly!  With the younger grades they brought up 4 points:

  1. If you see something that makes you sad, scared, or confused then tell a trusted adult.
  2. Don't share your name or address online.
  3. Do not meet anyone face to face offline.
  4. Netiquette--do not be mean or fude online. 

The netsmart assembly taught the upper grades how to be safe on the internet.  The students learned about how to keep private information off their online profiles.  Also, students learned about the importance of not meeting with people they meet online.  Cyber bullying was a huge topic discussed during the assembly.  They learned how it is a real problem kids faced today and what to do if they are aware of it happening.
