Kindergarten went on a field trip to Wild Wonders in Genola! They learned about different animal skin coverings with a hedgehog (hair), chinchilla (fur), bearded dragon (scales), and cockatoo (feathers). They also got to pet a skunk and a ringtail cat from Southern Utah, and meet Coco the bid and make feathers like his. It was a blast to ride the bus, learn about animals, and enjoy lunch on a beautiful sunny day.

Mt. Loafer Classified Employee of the Year

Mt Loafer Elementary News - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 3:33pm

Jessica is amazing with our lower grade students! She has a way of helping each child feel special and capable when she works with them. She is the data guru and is fantastic at updating and staying in touch with teachers about their student’s progress. I have been lucky enough to teach Jessica’s sweet daughter Elinor this year. Jessica is a fantastic mother and truly does love her children.

My first week here is an intern I was sitting at a lunch table all alone, Jessica noticed me and pulled up a chair and sat with me! We have eaten lunch with one another every day since then. She goes above and beyond even when no one is watching, I have found Jessica refilling the paper towel dispensers in the faculty bathroom, I have seen her wiping down our faculty tables and organizing the chairs. Not to mention she is THE most amazing crepe chef! I could honestly go on and on about my dear friend Jessica but I wanted her to hear how loved she is by the first, second and third grade teams. Here is what they said about her!

Sage Smith

1st Grade:

Jessica has been working with our tier 2 invention kids for the last years.  We love her. Here are just a few ways she has helped us.

  •  She goes above and beyond the expected.
  •  She genuinely cares about how the kids are doing
  • She checks in often with the teacher to see if she is being supportive with the goals we're trying to accomplish
  •  She's very flexible and can do just about anything!
  •  She's positive and we feel very much like she's part of our team
  •  We love the way she celebrates with us when children make progress
  •  She researches ideas to help kids that are stuck
  •  She takes pride in her job and it shows!
  •  She's dependable and very punctual

 2nd Grade:

Jessica is extremely consistent. She reports her findings which help us as teachers. She is positive and cheerful with the everyone she encounters. Jessica goes over and beyond with everything she does. She is always willing to pitch in and help where help is needed.

 3rd Grade:

Wow! What would I do without Jessica Barrett? She is simply amazing in every way. I love how positive she always is and how she makes my load lighter by helping out with my students. She is so knowledgeable in what she does and I’m grateful that she can help me reach my students that need extra support. She has had my back as a teacher in more ways than one this year.

Last Friday, our students came together to participate in our annual school-wide poetry slam. Students started by writing and performing their own poems in class. Some students then were invited to participate in the school slam. This year was the first year that we required all students in the school slam to perform their own poetry. Teachers agreed that overall the quality of the poems used was great and the performances were much better than years past. 

Students who performed in the school slam received a T-shirt and some prizes, and the top 3 students received awards.

Our judges picked their favorites who will now advance to the district poetry slam. Here are those students:

Marcus AhKuoi Aiden Bowden Gabe Shallenberger  Cassidy Haight Adyson Heap Spencer Fillmore Jared Kearns Camden Mead 3rd place: Mitchell Kimber 2nd place: Olivia Christensen 1st place: Katie Cook

History and English combine to discuss global issues

Salem Junior High School News - Thu, 04/26/2018 - 11:08am

Some might assume that with SAGE testing happening at school, students have already slipped into summer mode. That is definitely not the case here at Salem Junior High. Our 9th-grade history and English classes are working on a cross-curricular project that has them working hard and learning a lot.

Our students have been working on a research project that requires them to learn about a global issue of their choice and come up with a solution to fix the problem or at least mitigate the negative effects it is having on the part of the world that they have chosen to focus on. The final product will be a written speech that they will then deliver. This project has combined research practices used in English and history as well as writing, critical thinking, and creativity. It has been a complex project and the teachers are proud what their students are producing.

It has been a long project, but students are beginning to see the end. In the picture they are sharing the first draft of their speech, looking for peer feedback on ways to make their speech clear and compelling.
