4th Grade Makes Over 100,000

Park View Elementary News - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 5:54pm
(more pictures available)

In fourth grade, we jump from working with numbers in the thousands to working with numbers in the millions!  Those are some big numbers!  To help us better conceptualize large values, we used thousands cubes to show the framework of a million.  We discussed how each row of ten thousand cubes was equivalent to 10,000.  We found that ten rows of ten thousand cubes equaled a million!  This activity allowed us to explore the concept of the power of ten (10 ones = 1 ten, 10 tens = 1 hundred, 10 hundred = 1 thousand, etc.), and practice creating three forms of a number.  Using these manipulatives helped our students have a concrete visual of number value, which we will continue to use as we work on breaking down and building numbers.

Weekly Parent Newsletter 9/4-9/7

Mt Loafer Elementary News - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 5:06pm

Parent Newsletter   9/4/18

Early Arrival for Students:Please note that the school will be accessible to ALL students beginning at 8:00am. We do not provide direct student supervision until 8:30. If your student arrives early we will ask them to play on the playground or sit in the office until appropriate supervision is provided. At 8:30am all students will be allowed to access classrooms or play outside with direct supervision. And as always, we kindly ask kids not to run, play or wander the hallways or other classrooms in our building. Students are our top priority and we want them all the have a great experience each day! 

Bus Lane Pick-up/drop-off: Some clarification of where to access your students before or after school. Please be courteous and follow the painted lines on the curbing. 

Yellow painted lines = parent pick-up and drop-off zones (North & South ends)

Green painted lines = bus zone (Center East side)

We invite you to drop your student off or pick them up in the correct locations. The flow of traffic though tricky at times is critical to helping students arrive and leave safely. If you choose the North end of the building please pull through from the South end and leave on the North end. This will help us all do our best to get our grizzlies here and home. 

Please do not pull in to the green busing zone. Even if you do not see a bus we currently have 8 buses to transport students at Mt. Loafer and it is not an approved area for parents to park or pull through.

Mrs. Beckert's Monday Message

Brookside Elementary News - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 3:33pm

Dear Parents,

We are off to a great start for a wonderful school year. We bagan by welcoming the students back to school with a red carpet, balloons, and excitement. Thank you to everyone who helped provide this lively welcome.

Here are a few items of business as we begin our second week:

  • On September 12th, Brookside students have the opportunity to perform at the Nebo School District Board Meeting. Tami Evans has volunteered to put a choir together for that performance. They will practice each Wednesday afternoon until the performance date. This choir is for 4th through 6th grade students but 2nd and 3rd grade students are invited to join as well if they have an older sibling participating in the choir. We appreciate Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Gallagher for helping with this event and we appreciate your support.

  • This Friday at 2:45 pm we will be having our first fire drill of the year. I know this can be a frightening experience for our younger students so I wanted to make you aware of the drill in case you wanted to talk to your student prior to the drill. The office staff and teachers will help students understand that it is just a drill and that everything is OK. More information about our emergency drills can be found on the school’s web page in the parent handbook. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Be watching for September’s Parent Newsletter. I will be sending it out toward the end of this week.

Have a wonderful evening and, again, thank you for all your support!
