Principal Moment

When I was in teacher school, I learned a lot about how to teach the different subjects.  But most of what I know about teaching reading, I’ve learned from students.

My students taught me that when inviting children to the reading rug, it is much more exciting when the teacher hides a book behind her back than when she pulls it off the shelf.

They taught me that after gathering kids on the carpet – no matter how many times you say crisscross applesauce – someone in the front row will always sit on her knees.

They taught me that when the teacher shows her class a picture from a book, she must always move the book very slowly in front of them or they will whine, “I can’t see.”  And when the teacher is finished showing the picture, she will always have to show it again to one person who says, “I didn’t see it.”

My students taught me that whenever the teacher reads the word knock aloud, she should hit the desk at the same time.  When she reads yawn, she should make a good loud stretch.  And when she reads cleared her throat, she should accompany it with lots of noise in the back of her throat.

Students taught me that a child can read an entire page out loud and not pause at one single period. That same child will remember exactly who sat on the beanbag chair during silent reading time yesterday, last week, and two months ago but they won’t remember what they just finished reading two seconds ago.

They taught me that when I am reading a book to the children and ask them to make a prediction about what will happen next, it is entirely possible that one child will disregard my question completely and announce that I wore the same shoes yesterday and that my legs are hairy.

They taught me that if an ant crawls onto the cover of a child’s book during reading time, she will not flick it off-but carry the book carefully to the front of the room to show me.  When hearing that their lucky classmate has an ant crawling on her book,  the rest of the class will jump out of their chairs and run over to see our new visitor.  Reading will only assume after the dazed little guest has been carried outside to safety by all twenty-four children.

It is cool being a teacher.   It is also cool to go to school at Riverview!

Thank you for attending SEP Conferences!   When teachers and parents work together to try and provide the best learning environment for learning; the child is the one who benefits the most.  We appreciate your support!

PBIS Assembly and Good Citizen Reward

The student body reviewed the PBIS rules last week.  Students re-learned that PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support.  Students are learning to ‘Make their Mark and Make it Matter’ by being a R.A.M.  Ask your child what it means to be a R.A.M.  I also encourage you to visit the Riverview website at and familiarize yourself with PBIS at Riverview elementary.  Check out the fun videos!

This week, students joined in a 2nd term Good Citizen Reward...The Riverview Winter Olympics!  The games were opened with the Olympic Theme song.  Students had participated in a torch lighting ceremony.  They competed in speed skating, hockey, and figure skating.  Every student received a Riverview Gold Medal.  Thank you to all Riverview students for being great citizens!

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King!

This week we celebrated Mr. King's birthday. We learned that his voice and dream was the most important for equal rights. Our class made a collage by using oil pastels and then traced our hand prints. The signed hand prints symbolize that we will strive for love and peace. We even discussed how we can bring love and peace into our classrooms and homes. The students came up with fantastic ideas. Such as, helping others, saying you're sorry, don't argue, include everyone, fill someone else's bucket, and last, leave the last treat in the fridge for someone else.
Thank you Mr. King for your dream and voice. Our second grade class will try to use our voice, love, and peace as well.

Mrs. Sabrina Huyett and Mrs. Sherry Plaisted recently received grants from the the Nebo Education Foundation. The Nebo Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students.  

Brockbank Elementary – Sabrina Huyett
“Thank you so much for your generous grant to our class! We are beyond thrilled to have new science materials. These funds will enable us to hatch chickens, explore static and current electricity, and experience magnetism. Before receiving this grant, we only had one type of magnet. The Utah science core lists several types of magnets that students need to be familiar with, and now our students will have hands-on experience with all of them! This will make such a difference in our science exploration. Many thanks!” exclaimed Sabrina Huyett, fifth-grade teacher at Brockbank Elementary.

 Brockbank Elementary – Sherry PlaistedSherry Plaisted, facilitator at Brockbank Elementary, said, “Nebo Foundation does such an excellent job of supporting our school with the reading materials we need. These books will give our lower readers, just right materials that look more advanced with age appropriate themes and ideas. Thank you so much for the many ways you help schools all over the district. I have worked in other states and I would have loved having a Nebo Foundation when I was teaching in other places. You do such an amazing job and make grants so easy to apply for. Thanks again!!!”

Seniors for the Yearbook

Maple Mountain High School News - Fri, 01/19/2018 - 12:24pm
Attributions: Story by Tyler Lewis.

It is time to start thinking about congratulating your senior for completing high school! Crazy, right? One way to congratulate your senior is to get a senior ad placed in the yearbook. Senior ads are available to purchase at Maple Mountain's finance office.

These are the important dates and prices to consider:

  • February 9, 2018 is the FINAL DEADLINE to buy an ad.
  • $20 if purchased before February 2.
  • $30 if purchased after February 2.

4 things are needed for a senior ad:

  1. ONE photo of your senior.
  2. A few sentences congratulating your senior (if it’s too long, it will be shortened).
  3. A self-addressed envelope so your photo can be returned.
  4. A copy of the receipt from the finance office. 

Give the envelope with the photo, sentences, and receipt to the main office secretary. Digital photos and sentences may be emailed to but the ad will not be created until a copy of the receipt is received.

The yearbook staff will create the senior ads to fit the design of the yearbook, and all senior ads will be the same size.
Questions? Call or email Mr.   801.794.6740 ext 1563

Nebo School District’s teacher Shareka Gregory, was nominated and WON the KSL Teacher Feature.

Mrs. Gregory was nominated by parent, Ashley Atwater. She said in part:
“When my daughter was able to turn in a request form last May, the first teacher on her list was Mrs. Gregory. I knew nothing about her or her teaching style, but my daughter was drawn to her. As this school year approached, she celebrated as she found out who her teacher was. She was so excited to start school and be in Mrs. Gregory's class.

“School starts and from day one, my daughter has loved going to school. When she has to stay home because she is sick, my daughter cries because she will miss out on all of the awesome things Mrs. Gregory has planned for them. Mrs. Gregory has an Instagram for her fourth-grade class. On there, she takes pictures and videos of the kids and things they are working on at school. As a parent, I love this! I cannot be there every day to see all the amazing things she is doing, but I feel like a part of it because Mrs. Gregory takes the time to do this.

“It doesn't stop there... we received our monthly newsletter in our child's folder, and it read at the top something similar to this, ‘Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Then she explained that when her heart is aching she just wants to serve. She adopted a class and was in close contact with a teacher in Texas effected by the hurricane and was collecting and mailing supplies and donations to them. This just shows you what kind of a person she is. We think she is just amazing, and I know I am not the only parent that feels this way!”

KSL NewsRadio and Zions Bank are proud to honor Utah's best teachers with the KSL Teacher Feature Awards! Since 1994, Teacher Feature has highlighted outstanding teachers throughout the State of Utah. Winning teachers are announced every Tuesday morning, September through June, on Utah's Morning News with Brian & Amanda.

Each winning teacher is honored with a plaque from Zions Bank, an overnight stay at Anniversary Inn, a gift certificate for dinner at the beautiful Roof Restaurant at Temple Square and a pair of season tickets from Hale Centre Theater!

All winners are also invited to attend an end-of-year banquet at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in their honor. In addition, one lucky teacher will win the grand prize 2-year lease on a new car courtesy of Burt Brothers Tire and Service.

A panel of judges from Zions Bank, the State Office of Education, and KSL NewsRadio judge the hundreds of nominating letters. The letters can be sent in by anyone - students, peers, former students and even relatives. If you would like to nominate a deserving teacher, go to is external).
