BYU Kinnect Dancers visited Art City Elementary on Friday May 16, 2014, and presented a program about Heros.  Kinnect is a student outreach performance dance company with a specific focus on developing teaching, creative, and performing skills in its members. This group is carefully selected, prepared, and mentored in order to effectively teach dance as a creative process to elementary- and middle-school-age children, following the U.S. National Dance Standards and the Utah State Dance Core Curriculum. Group members meet from four to seven hours weekly to help create dance “Lecture Performances” for local public schools and museums during winter semester and the first three to four weeks of spring term.
Not only did Arty City students enjoy watching the Kinnect dancers they also enjoyed particpating in the presentation.  After the assembly, a few classes had the opportunity to meet individually with the Kinnect dancers and explore movement.  It was a fun day!  Thanks for visiting our school!

Champions Challenge Reading

For the past two months, Park students have participated in a reading challenge sponsored by Spanish Fork City in connection with the Champions Challenge Rodeo.  This event is taking place at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds on May 31st.  Students that met the requirements for their monthly reading were entered in a drawing for two tickets to the Champions Challenge Rodeo.  Former Mayor Wayne Anderson and members of the Diamond Fork Riding Club drew one lucky name from each grade level to attend the special event.  Mayor Anderson added a little suspense to the drawings by having each grade stand all at once and eliminated students by saying the initials of possible winners.  It was a picture perfect moment when one boy looked around realizing he was the only one standing in the 3rd grade.  It was a fun celebration not only for the ticket winners, but for the students and the thousands of minutes they read.  Time well spent! 

Winners of the drawing from Park Elementary were: Mason Hatch, Landon Buchanan, Micah Kemper, Tesa Jensen, Madilyn Beattie, and Jordan Jackson

Art City's Black Belt Recorder Concert

All of the students that had earned a black belt in Mrs. Lisa Gervais music class at Art City Elementary were invited to participate in playing in front of the school on May 14, 2014. Mrs. Gervais the Music teacher, uses the program "Recorder Karate by Barb Philipak". 
            This year is Mrs. Gervais's second year teaching music at Art City Elementary School. Mrs. Gervais uses the book "Recorder Karate" By Barb Philipak it teaches students how to play the recorder with simple lessons and amazing motivation, using ribbons representing "belts" as they pass off songs they earn a "belt". White, "Hot Cross Buns; Yellow, "Gently Sleep"; Orange is "Merrily We Roll Along"; Green, "It' Raining"; Purple, "Old MacDonald had a Farm"; Blue, "When the Saints Go Marching In"; Red, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"; Brown, "Amazing Grace"; and Black, "Ode to Joy".  
             Recorders gained popularity in schools in the 1950′s and are still a great instrument to teach to young children today. Students learn rhythms, how to read music… and how to put those two together along with fingerings. They also learn phrasing, breathing, tonguing, melody and many other musical concepts. (Posted by admin on February 9, 2011 in Elementary Music Teacher Blog)  Some schools only teach the Recorder for one year, at Art City students receive Recorders in the fourth-grade and continue using them through the sixth-grade, when they get to keep them.

Leadership is becoming more prominent each day at Park Elementary.  It’s important for students to learn leadership skills now, especially when it applies to academics.  That is exactly what our Literature Leaders experience as they work to promote reading in the school.  Students at Park have the opportunity to find certain books in the library, read them, and report to a Literature Leader about the book they read.  And even more impressive, students discuss the Habits the characters used or did not use in the story.  This has been engaging for all students as they gain a love for reading.  Thanks Literature Leaders!

Excellent game! The teachers had the edge but the 6th graders gave them a run or 17 for their money. The All-stars made a great showing in the last inning—had Mr. Johnson not taken out Mrs. Moxon with a hard line drive to 3rd the 6th grades may have taken the lead.
