Oh my goodness! Students who read all summer enjoyed some fun at our Reading Rodeo. Mr. Goudy is always up for some real rodeo with his horses and the PTA was so good to provide other activities and parent helpers to run those activities. Thank you students and parents for efforts to read ove the summer.

First grade went to the Red Barn pumpkin patch and learned about different fruit trees. They got to pick their own apple and then enjoyed jumping on air pads, riding pedal carts, and sliding on gunnysacks. We ended the day with a warm donut that we enjoyed on our hayride back to the school.

Second grade also had fun Johnny Appleseed celebrations this week!
Mrs. Kelley's Class: We celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day on Friday. We added 3 digits using apple seeds, read about apples, tasted apples, and made applesauce. The students had a fun time while learning through reading, math, and science.
Mrs. McMullin's Class: Mrs. McMullin’s husband joined the festivities and came to talk to her class. He’s a fruit farmer from McMullin Orchards and the class loved learning all about apples. He gave them each a honey crisp apple and we celebrated Johnny Appleseed in style!
First graders practice the song "Big Old Storm" in the Cougar Den!
First grade celebrated Johnny Appleseed's birthday on Wednesday! They had a visit from Johnny Appleseed, himself! They also did a number of apple themed activities, including apple volcano science, bobbing for apples, apple art, peeling apples, and writing about how to cook applesauce and apple pie. They even got to eat homemade applesauce at the end of the day!
We love farm field day! It is put on by Utah State Extension. Each class is assigned a different farm field day symbol. The students get the opportunity to go to several different stations. Some of them include: farm safety, eating healthy, washing hands, sheep herding, and a talking tomato. We also enjoyed eating our lunch at Discovery Park. The students loved wearing their awesome tie dye shirts they made at school with parent volunteers.
Mrs. Kelley's class have been using spiders to learn about adjectives, and had this special visitor last week to make it real!
