Salem Elementary's Christmas Assembly is a fun tradition that is always much anticipated by all students. Students sing Christmas songs as a grade level, and the fifth graders play their recorders.   This year the sixth graders performed a dance to Olaf's song "Summer".  This year students were thrilled when Santa dropped in for a surprise visit.  Definitly a great way to show school spirit and spread some holiday cheer.

Spring Lake Students have been getting together to sing Christmas Carols. Everyone loves singing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, and other songs. The highlight each year though is the montage of the teachers missing their two front teeth! Tradition is kept by singing Silent Night as the final song, which is Mr. Sainsbury’s favorite, and continuing to sing the song as we return to class.

Utah Water Color Traveling Exhibit in the Hobble Creek Halls

Select Watercolors from the Utah Watercolor Society Annual Exhibit

Now On View at Hobble Creek Elementary

 

Mapleton —― Hobble Creek Elementary presents, 2014 Utah Watercolor Society, a Utah Arts & Museums Traveling Exhibition, from January 5 through February 2 2015 at Hobble Creek Elementary  . The works in this exhibition illustrate the variety of ways that watercolors can be employed in painting.

 

The works selected for the 2014-2015 exhibition include a variety of subjects and representations, from the fresh, spontaneous, and transparent images typically associated with watercolor, to controlled images that have been created through carefully overlaid washes. To create these images, artists divorced themselves from directly recreating the objects of their gaze and instead concerned themselves with the abstract elements of a painted image: line, value, shape, rhythm and texture. Others utilized these same techniques and structural elements to construct recognizable images of Utah's landscape.

 

Utah Watercolor Society of Utah was founded in 1974 to "elevate watercolor and educate the public of the importance of watercolor as a creative, permanent art medium." The society encourages its members to develop artistically and creatively and to share ideas and techniques with one another while providing opportunities for exposure of their art in exhibitions. The society is a member of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, a collective of societies in ten western states that share the same goals and mission.

 

Each year the Utah Watercolor Society sponsors a competition juried by nationally recognized watercolorists. From this show, works are selected for the Utah Arts & Museums’ Traveling Exhibition Program. The 2014 exhibition will be located at Hobble Creek Elementary, 1145 East 1200 North Mapleton from January 5 to February 2. Hobble Creek is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 to 3:30. For more information on viewing the exhibition, please call 801-489-2863 or go to hobblecreek.nebo.edu.

Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Thursday, December 18. They earned this day by meeting their classroom reading goals. Each first-grade class had to fill their Polar Express train car and in order to accomplish this, each student had to read at least six books. As a reward for meeting this goal, students got to wear pajamas to school; make Polar Express trains out of HoHo's, starlight mints, and chocolate bells; make engineer hats out of paper. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express". It was a great way to celebrate all of their hard work!
