Sarah McMullin O'Gwin, Matt McMullin, and Candi McMullin come into Mrs. Kelley's first grade classroom on behalf of Agriculture in the Classroom sponsored by Utah State University Cooperative Extension.    They talked to the class about the importance of agriculture in their lives, and specifically talked about bees and their importance and how farmers depend on them.  The students learned how beekeepers keep the bees calm, and got to taste some honey.  The kids really enjoyed the presentation.  Some of the children even got to try on a beekeeper suit.  They also donated the book The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valeria Cis to the classroom.  What a fun learning experience!

How long does it take to make kettle corn for the whole school?

They stay in shape my warming up before dancing, eating healthy foods, and exercising every day!  They taught us how to talk without words, just with dancing; even a ball bouncing can communicate! Dancing keeps us fit and helps us see the world in a different way. They had the audiance participate with clapping in unison and with following patterns.They froze in interesting patterns. They taught us that we only get one body, so we need to take care of it.

Ursala  showed us a dance with moves like she was glad to be alive! Dan danced in ancient greek style! Jackie danced a dance of celebration and socialization. Effra did an ethnic dance that told a story of the past.  Laura danced a ballet of the royal courts.  Justin made up his own modern dance.  Tyler was full of surprises with a break dance and hip hop.  They invited all of us to make our ordinary moves into an extraordinary dance.

We had an awesome assembly! It was all about internet safety. The little kids watched a fun video about how to be safe using the internet.  Our special guest speaker was Josa Westover.  He told us about the bad kinds of things that people on the internet can do, and how these people can use information found on the internet against kids.  He taught us about a robot named Clicky.  We saw a video about Clicky; he caught the bad guys and put them in jail.  He told us to be careful and to tell our parents about anything bad we may see on the internet.
