We had a great Math Pumpkin activity!  We predicted, measured, weighed, and guessed how many pumpkin seeds there were in our pumpkins.  Then we counted out the number of seeds in our pumpkins by putting the seeds into groups of 10.  It is always amazing to everyone that just because a pumpkin is bigger than another, it doesn't mean that it is going to have more seeds that a smaller pumpkin.

PTA Cookie Dough Fundraiser

Rees Elementary News - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 11:44am

They say cookies make the world a better place. That is why the PTA is selling cookie dough from Pizza Factory this year. This is a great fundraising opportunity with a fun, quality product, and half the funds collected going to the PTA.  The money raised helps support PTA activities and sponsored events like: Book Fair, Teacher Appreciation Day, Family Activity Night, Box Tops, Reflections, SEP dinners and more! 

The cookie dough is $15 for a 3 pound tub.  The PTA is asking students to collect orders and money from family and friends (no door to door sales) in the manila envelope that was sent out.   Once the orders are received and money collected, the cookie dough will be delivered before Christmas Break. 

Cash and checks are accepted.  Please make sure checks are written out to "Rees Elementary PTA".  All orders are due November 10th!  

We are grateful for our PTA and the many wonderful things they do to support students and teachers.  Thank you for your support of our PTA and school!

Red Ribbon Week

East Meadows Elementary News - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 10:48am

Monday – “Love yourself”  Wear RED

  • You will receive keys for the students to each write a drug free pledge on.  Have them write the pledge, cut out the key and take your class set to the office before lunch.  The PTA will come in that day and hang them up at the front of the school.
  • The kids will each receive a key on a red ribbon to tie onto their backpacks. The national theme is, “Your Future is Key, Stay Drug Free”.
  • Spanish Fork police department will be here to do an assembly to kick off the week.  We will begin at 1:25.  Have your class cleaned up before you come.  The assembly will go to the end of the day. 

Tuesday – “Team up against drugs”  Wear your favorite sports attire

  • When your class goes to art this week they will paint a rock. We would like each child to bring in a small rock.  Each rock should be no larger than the size of an egg or the size of their palm.  This goes along with a book, Only One You, that the PTA has purchased. Plan a time on your art day that you can read the story to your class and we will pass it around. They will paint their rock and take it home to place somewhere as a reminder that they are important in making the world a better place. 

Wednesday – Internet Safety – Wear WHITE and THINK

  • T-is it Truthful
  • H-is it Helpful
  • I-is it Inspiring
  • N-is it Necessary
  • K-is it Kind

Thursday – “Turn your back on drugs” Wear your shirt backwards

Friday – School Pride – Wear your school shirt or school colors

  • Cougar Pride assembly at 1:45 – I am assuming 30-45 minutes but I haven’t heard back from them about the details.

The first school dance of the year for the Spanish Fork Lobos was this past Friday, November 3, 2017.

Students who brought their student ID were given 10 tickets upon admission to play their choice of several carnival type games: ping pong Gatorade toss, pumpkin bowling, disk golf, football toss, and a face painting booth (hearts were a simple but popular request among the girls).

Of course, what is a carnival without popcorn and cotton candy!  Both are a must and they were delicious.
Don't forget why we all went to the dance—to dance with our friends to awesome music!  Everybody loved the music that was played and enjoyed hanging with friends and jamming out to the music. Many people enjoyed the Fall Dance and the games and music. Make sure to thank the people who helped make the Fall Dance possible. Go LOBOS!

Seussical The Musical by the MMHS Fine Arts Department

Maple Mountain High School News - Sat, 11/04/2017 - 2:51pm
Attributions: Story by Bradley Moss.

The MMHS Fine Arts Department is gearing up for the performances of the Maple Mountain High School fall musical, Seussical. The show performs on November 10, 11, and 13 at 7 PM, with a 2 PM matinee on Saturrday, November 11 in the MMHS auditorium.

Based on the well-known works of Dr. Seuss, this musical tells the story of a young boy who doesn’t fit in so he uses his imagination to escape to places where he feels safe and “normal”.

The Boy, who becomes a character—Jojo (Chelsie Hawkes)—in his own imagination’s story, is a young person with a vivid imagination who tries to fit in with those around him. He never quite succeeds in real life, so he often uses his ‘thinks’ to escape into a world that he can watch in story fashion from afar. When the Cat (Anton Moss) pushes him into his own imagined story he learns that he is strong and good enough to be true to himself regardless of whether or not he is accepted by others. Not only does he grow in this personal knowledge, even the characters he has imagined—Horton (Nathan Austin), Gertrude (Sarah Savage), Sour Kangaroo (Cami Roberts), Mayzie (Cassidy Christensen), Mr. and Mrs. Mayor (Jason Metler and Kate Hoffman), General Schmitz (Talon Tippetts) and all the rest—develop a confident sense of self and awareness of others.

Seussical is a show is filled with wild imagination, fascinating, familiar, and beloved characters, as well as spunky music and exciting dance numbers! This incredible cast has been working since early in the school year to bring this production from imagination to reality.

Principal 200 Board Filled!

Riverview Elementary News - Fri, 11/03/2017 - 3:41pm

When a student writes his/her name on the Principal 200 Board it means that he/she is embracing challenge and sticking with it.  The ability to learn is very learnable. 'The Learning Pit' and 'Learner Powers' are actions that are intentionally taught at Riverview. The Learning Pit is about helping young students help themselves. The Learner Powers are about helping young students become better learners, developing learning habits, and preparing for a lifetime of learning.  Congratulations to these 200 fine students!  Follow us on instragram @riverviewelementary to view the Principal 200 Board Parade.
