As the popular song from the Peanuts movie states I feel better when I'm dancing, Park students sure can relate.  Students enjoyed a presentation from our 3rd grade students as they prepare for the upcoming Leadership Day.  They danced to the hit song  I feel better when I'm dancing  and did not disappoint.  We are excited to see them perform again in a few weeks.

We were also privileged to watch some traditional Navajo dancing presented by our very own Mrs. Beyal and her family.  Students were in awe at the beauty and grace these dancers performed.  It was an honor to learn more of the Navajo culture.

If you take a peek inside Ms. Harmer’s 7th grade Utah studies class, you might see something unusual.  Students use graham crackers to help them learn.

Ms. Harmer gives students grahams to help them learn about the three geographic regions in Utah.  Check out the students’ work.  Crackers are shaped into the state of Utah then decorated to represent the regions.

What a yummy way to learn.

What makes you different from everyone else? 
I was born at home (on purpose). Not in the hospital. If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them? My brother Brandon, "When is my sister going to have a baby?"What is your favorite subject in school and why? 
Math, because there's always a right or a wrong answer. 

Jacob Scutt
What is your favorite quote, and why? 
"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand." Randy Pausch. Life may not give you its best circumstances, but it's still your choice on how much you get out of it.  I'd say life has given me a good hand; however, I still try my best to achieve more. Where do you want to see yourself in five years?

In relation to being the student of the month, I actually don't find myself any smarter than the average person, but that doesn't stop me from trying my best.  I believe anyone can get good grades as long as they try.  No one told me I needed a 4.0.  I challenge myself by seeing how long I can stay straight A. If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them? 
I don't really have a specific someone.  William Wallace has fascinated me with his leadership, and I'd like to ask Hitler "why". I's also like to see what Jesus thinks of all the different christian religions.  What is your favorite subject in school and why?
