Mrs. Provstgaard's Class Celebrates Their Love of Reading

Taylor Elementary News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 10:14am

Each year, students in Mrs. Provstgaard's class read Newberry Award winner,  "Miracles on Maple Hill" by Virginia Sorensen.  As part of this students celebrate the book by making it come alive. A few of the activities the third graders did were creating dioramas to show how they visualized Maple Hill to look in their mind. Students also  wrote an opinion essay about whether they would like to live on Maple Hill or their own home.

Third grade student, Victoria Liddle, says, "My favorite part was making the diorama because it was made out of candy. It was fun to show the class and share with other people.   I liked the book when they were traveling in the car and Marly was telling her mom to repeat something over and over again and her mom wouldn't."  

Student, Parker Cowley, said, " I liked the part in the book when they met 'Harry the Hermit'.  My grandpa used to know a hermit.  He sounded nice.  I also want to live in Maple hill because I like maple syrup."

Thank you Mrs. Provstgaard creating a love for reading in your class!

Taylor Elementary News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 2:05pm

Students in Mr. Hansen, Mr. Richins and Mr. Wilson's fifth-grade classes recently were involved in Discovery Gateway's "Reaction Time" presentation.  As part of fifth-grade core, students study states of matter as well as chemical and physical change.  Demonstrations and experiments took place to help solidify the students' understanding.  This was a great hands on learning opportunity because students actually performed the experiments themselves.   Fifth-grade student, Jason Flinders, said, " My favorite part was doing the experiments because you got to see colors changing, things shooting out of the vials, and we got to wear awesome goggles!"

Brockbank Collected "Pennies" for Shriner's Hospital!

Brockbank Elementary News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 1:20pm

Brockbank Elementary collected "Pennies" for Shriner's Hospital by bringing in $824.53. Every penny raised will go to help Shriner's Hospital to help make a difference in a child's life. Shriner's provides specialized care to children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.  The "Kid Power" sixth-grade student council members along with their adviser, Mrs. Terri Jensen wanted to teach the students that " kids can make a difference in the world". The students were encouraged to donate their quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. The object was not to go door-to-door and solicit money from family or neighbors but for students to bring in their own pocket change that they could earn by doing chores at home and then donating it to a worthy cause. To make it interesting a school wide competition was held and the winning classes were first place-Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson's fifth grade-class, second place - Mrs. JaNae Wilson's sixth-grade class and third place - Miss Stephanie Benson's fifth-grade class.

Students at Taylor Elementary were recently delighted by the magical skills of magician Lance Nielson!  Lance not only taught the students about magic, he showed the students that bullying is wrong.  Lance turned to magic as a youth to distract others from the things that made him different.   He encouraged students to look at each other as friends and find the good in one another.  He even revealed a secret or two about his magic tricks!   Thank you to Taylor's PTA for inviting the students to be a part of such a great assembly!

Comedy,  Entertainment, Illusion!   On January 23,2015 we had a magic show. Mr. Magic Man did a bunch of magic tricks. He had a coloring book. First, there were no pictures in the book.  Then he flipped through the book and pictures appeared.  When he flipped through the book again, the pictures were colored.  Then the pages would be blank again.   How did he do that?  He made a snowman appear.  He said if we all thought of a snowman, it would appear.  But it appeared in pieces, because Mr. Wright thought of parts of a snowman instead of a whole snowman.  A hat, black buttons and a carrot nose was all that we could see. He pulled a big colored string out of his hand, a long candy cane out of a hat, magically made snow out of blue liquid, and made a necklace disappear and appear in a different place.  He made a snow flake disappear and it ended up on his back!  He even pulled a rabbit out of a hat with the help of Bianka.  The Magic Man did lots of great trick’s.   Kid’s really liked it.

On January 28, 2015 our school was privileged to see an amazing Opera Assembly presented by the Utah Opera School Program. Our school was chosen out of many Utah Schools to see these talented performers. Their names were, Lindsay, the pianist, Jessica, a soprano, Will, a base, and Tyson, a tenor.  They had very powerful voices. They taught us opera definitions such as soprano, duets, and trios and all sorts of things about opera.  Utah Opera School Programs give students opportunities to develop skills in music as identified in the state core curriculum while they are being introduced to the basic elements of the art form of opera; this program also shows audiences that being involved in the art form can be moving, thrilling, and fun. They hope to inspire promising young artists and give them experience with the variety of artistic activities and careers involved in the creation, development, and production of opera. .  Students were asked what they thought of the assembly.  Maya Sorenson said, “It was better than I expected it to be.’’  Karli said, “It kept getting better!’’ Lucy Rice said that if she rated it on a scale of 0-10, she would give it a big 9.  Brielle Shirley said ‘’ It was good, better than I thought.’’  Thanks to the Utah Opera School Program for allowing Park View to see this great performance.
