Art City Sixth-grade presented a program to students and parents on Thursday May 22, 2014.  "Let's go on an adventure!" Austin said to his friends.  They find reasons not to go, but Austin is determined to go out and "see the world".  As he journey's, he sees and experiences good and bad things, kind people, and a few "ruffians".  The students portrayed, through song and dance, many things Austin experienced.  A few things they sang about were Defying Gravity, being Alone in the Universe and How Lucy You Are.   Mrs. Gardener and Mrs. Cox helped the choreograph dances, which was much appreciated.  Thursday evening after the students performed for their parents they officially "graduated" from the sixth-grade.

Gandhi once said: “Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory.”  Well, there were 25 satisfied students with full bellies because of their own victories Friday morning.  Yes, Park students enjoyed another Victory Breakfast with special guests Julie Warren, Elementary Education Director and J. Lynn Jones, Federal Programs Director from Nebo School District.

 Mrs. Warren and Mr. Jones both shared how important it is to use Habit 5, Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood.  Listening to others and understanding people’s feelings is important in school and in life.  Mr. Jones also shared his favorite habit, Sharpen your Saw so you can keep balance in your life.

 Students shared their favorite habits and how they use them in school and at home.  Probably the most impressive thing students shared were their own class mission statements and a 7 Habits song.  This was impressive because students did not rehearse anything they said or did.  It came natural to them as they smiled their happy faces.

 Mr. Jones and Mrs. Warren both agree, “There is something different at Park, it is a special place.”  We know it is our wonderful students that are living the 7 Habits. 

 Congratulations to all our students that came to breakfast and to each student who earned a Golden Panther Paw this year!

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.
