Sierra Bonita Scores a Perfect 100 by Energy Star!

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification. We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified. This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation. Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100. Sierra Bonita was one of the schools who scored a perfect 100!!

The certification process for Energy Star is not an easy one. Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Energy Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account. This data, along with many other data points, are used to compare our K-12 facility to other K-12 facilities throughout the country. We then receive a score based on the grading criteria outlined by Energy Star.

Congratulations Brandi Wayment--Hobble Creek's Teacher of the Year!!

Spirit of the Mustang Recipient - Justin Johnson

As I thought about whom to give this to, all the faces and names of everyone who have influenced me in some way obviously came to mind. I could give this to anyone of you honestly. But the name that just kept coming back time and time again was Justin’s, because he has done so much for me over the last 3 years.

Justin is the type of person who will drop everything they’re doing to help you out. 100% selfless. I remember as a first year teacher, he would check in on me all the time to see how I was doing. I don’t remember what we even talked about, but I do remember every time he left, I felt like I was a freaking awesome teacher, because he always made me feel that way, and still does whenever he checks in on me.

I remember my first time going to grade-level collaboration. I was looking over the printout of students who were struggling, listening to teachers voice their concerns over discipline issues they were having, how to get so-and-so engaged more, how to get so-and-so to come to class, or stop being so belligerent. As I listened to the names being brought up, and as I looked over this list, I realized that I didn’t have a single student on this list. What I also noticed was that Justin had every single one of them. I realized then that the subjects Justin and I taught, thanks in part to certain stigmas attached to them, attracted very different types of students. The only discipline issues I have are students wanting to talk too much. Other than that, 99.9% of my students want to get good grades and want to work hard. Justin, deals with a whole slew of issues that I don’t, and yet, he makes it work, without complaint, without pessimism. He is so dedicated to his students, wanting to challenge them, help them take accountability and responsibility for their success. He does such a good job with these students, that they come back and visit him all the time. The students that seemed to hate everything about school and teachers, coming back to visit Johnson, because he was able to connect with them, and helped them feel something while here at school.

Justin, your dedication to your craft and to the students you teach is exemplary. You’re the man and I appreciate you brother.

Penny Wars!

This week, we will be participating in Penny Wars. Here's how it works: 

Each grade will be competing to earn the most money by the end of the week. They can ADD to their total value by adding pennies and dollar bills (any amount) into their grade's bucket. They can SUBTRACT from another grade's total value by adding any kind of silver coin into their bucket. This is a great opportunity to get rid of all that loose change!  The money raised will be used as a college scholarship for a Sierra Bonita alumni that will be graduating from Maple Mountain High School this year.

Hobble Creek Elementary Second GradeFarm Field Day at Harward Farm in Springville, April 12, 2018. This is an annual event only for second graders and specifically geared to our curriculum. The event is sponsored by Utah State University Extension and Utah County Future Farmers of America.

We got to watch a sheep being  sheared. We pet calves, lambs, pigs and goats. We learned about the food pyramid and had a healthy snack.

Attention for Show Choir Parents

We have been invited to sing at Maple Mountain High School’s Music at the Mountain, April 11, at 7:00 P.M. In order to be ready for this, I would like to have some additional choir practices for JUST the Show Choir kids.

One more practice tomorrow, Wednesday, April 11th, at 8:30 a.m., so we can make sure we have everything ready for that night.

The kids will need to wear Hawaiian/Tropical/ bright clothing, Flip flops/sandals, sunglasses, beach towels, etc. Don’t go and buy anything. Just have the kids let me know if they need to borrow some of my things for that night.

Our call time to do our number on the stage is at 5:45I would like all of the kids there around 5:30 to be ready to go on stage. We will then leave the stage and have an hour before the performance. The kids can bring a snack to eat after our practice.

We are the opening number for the program. This is a wonderful concert for the kids to listen to.  Encourage them to stay for the whole program. However, I do understand that a lot is going on that day.  If you need to leave after that, please let me know when you pick up your child. We will be sitting in an assigned area.

Thank you so much for allowing us to work with your children in choir year. We love it, and we hope it shows!

Thanks for all of your support!
