Boston Massacre Reenactment

In 5th grade social studies we've been learning about the Revolutionary War. Yesterday we were learning about the Boston Massacre where groups of colonists threw snowballs and rocks at British soldiers. We did a snowball activity where the students answered questions like "what do you do when you're upset" "How do you manage being upset" and "how did people during the revolutionary war manage being upset" and then got to throw their crumpled up paper across the room. We had a good discussion on how they managed their anger and how it affected the Revolutionary War.

Halloween Concert Anticipations

The Students of the Payson High School Orchestras have some amazing songs to perform for their upcoming Halloween Concert on Oct. 23, 2018! Gentry Stickney, the orchestra director of all the orchestra groups, said, “We are playing a great mixture of classical pieces, songs from movies, and original works for this concert. For the Halloween concert, I try to keep a spooky and quirky theme going throughout the evening.”

Stickney continued, describing the pieces her beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes have worked so hard on. “The Concert strings will start off by playing a piece called Stargazer by Robert Buckley, followed by a classical number, Night On Bald Mountain, written by Russian composer, Modest Mussorgsky, as well as a moody piece by Adrian Gordon called Apocalypse. The Philharmonic orchestra will be playing two pieces. One is from the Tim Burton film The Nightmare Before Christmas called This is Halloween. Their second piece is the classic by Edvard Grieg, In the Hall of the Mountain King. Chamber, the auditioned group will be playing a wide variety of pieces to show off their skills and versatility. They will perform two intense classical pieces. The first will be a rock version of Toccata and Fugue by J.S. Bach which will feature soloists on electric instruments. We will then be performing Giuseppe Verdi's Day of Wrath. The group will then take it down a notch with a beautiful medley from the 90's film, Edward Scissorhands, and finish off with a wild piece called Swamp Thang by Richard Meyer.

To end the night, all the orchestras will join together on stage with the advanced orchestra from Mt. Nebo Junior High to perform Michael Jackson's Halloween classic, Thriller. It will be an impressive display as we will have nearly 100 students performing on stage at once.”

When Stickney was asked how excited she was for the concert, she said, “I am incredibly excited for our first concert of the year. It will be a fun-filled night and the students have worked so hard. I love the Halloween concert because it is a great opportunity for the musicians and the audience to realize that there is exciting and beautiful music across all genres. It's going to be a party. ” In other words, come enjoy the music and show some support for the students of the Payson High School Orchestras as they perform their awesome pieces.

Eight-grade US History classes recently went to UVU and saw the Roots of Knowledge exhibit. 

The exhibit includes numerous stained-glass windows featuring important events, places, people, throughout history.  The windows convey how these historical elements have influenced our education, knowledge, and learning. 

Students were able to look through the windows and make connections to what they having been learning in class as well as understand how knowledge throughout history influences their daily lives today and into the future.

Sophomore/Freshman Lady Dons Soccer Team Season Highlight –

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 10/16/2018 - 6:00am

(more pictures available)

The Sophomore/Freshman Lady Dons soccer team consisted of 25 players - 12 of which were Freshmen from Spanish Fork Junior High: Ally Jones, Ashley Olsen, Bailey Pierce, Brooklyn Weight, Camryn Marshall, Delaney Hicks, Kate Fallon, Kaydenz Critchlow, Lucy Sloan, Miriam Pendleton, Julia Vasquez, and Olivia Irvine. Each of these girls brought unique talent and a positive attitude to the Lady Don’s Soccer Team. Our Season ended this past week with the conclusion of 8 wins and 5 losses. It was a very successful season for the team as well as the improvement of personal skill development.

The Lady Dons played a variety of different teams and even played some teams twice. Our games against Maple Mt., Salem Hills, and Wasatch were competitive and unpredictable of which team would come out with the win. We were asked by a few different schools if our Sophomore/Freshman team would play their JV teams such as ALA, Juab, and Waterford. We even played Alta who is a 5A school and won – at half time we were down 1-3, in the second half the Lady Dons fought hard for the win with the score finishing 5-3! 

The coaches couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls to work with. Some of these Freshmen played on the JV team and some even received playing time on the varsity team. These 12 girls are very talented and possess a great amount of potential that will be exciting to watch develop over the next 3 years. As long as these girls continue to work as a team, continue to be positive on and off the bench, and work hard to improve individual skill at practice, they will bring to the Lady Dons Soccer Team next year and in the years to come. They have set a great standard for next year’s incoming freshmen.

Playing with Economics

Utilizing a spirited game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors”, Ms. Terry’s 9th grade Geography classes learned about three different economic systems used in the world.  

Students were given “money” whose individual value equaled 1 M&M.  With this “money”, they competed in various games of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” following the economic rules of the various economic systems they had previously studied.  

The students had a good time competing against each other and even Mr. Larsen, our Administrative intern, joined in. Students were able to see how each system differed from each other and got a personal glimpse of how the economic systems of Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism work.

Riverview Elementary Weekly Newsletter

Principal Moment

Elementary school teachers are master code breakers.  As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy who figured out the hieroglyphic mystery on the Rosetta stone wasn’t at one time an elementary school teacher. 

Kids spelling mistakes never change: they will be thay, grandpa will be grampa, different will be difrent, every will be evry, any will be ene, and bow and arrow will be bowenairo.  In December, ornaments will be ordamnts.  Santa’s name can give kids trouble, too.   Children write about going to the mall and sitting on “Satan’s lap.”

Over the years teachers encounter pretty much every misspelling imaginable.  We read littel, speshl, butaful, grat, frist, rember, probly, and whith so many times that the misspelled versions begin to look correct.  Kids keep me entertained with their spelling.  I once had a student give me a love letter that read: “Mrs. Killian you are the beast!” Another was a card written to me many years ago before I left for maternity leave: “I am sad you r living.” 

Chalk-Walk FUNdraiser-Tuesday, October 16th

Tomorrow is our FUNdraiser.  Looks like the weather will cooperate; the temperature is to be 59 degrees and sunny. 

FAQ’S of a Chalk Walk

  1. What is a Chalk Walk? During each lap, the walkers will be celebrated with a splash of color (colored cornstarch which is 100% non-toxic and completely biodegradable).  The colors will be released from squeeze bottles managed by teachers and parent volunteers.
  2. How does this help Riverview Elementary? The Color Walk will raise money through sponsored pledges and laps walked.  In other words, the students are actively earning money for our school!  We are working towards purchasing chromebooks.  
  3.  Where will this take place and what will it look like? The track will be set upon the grass behind Riverview Elementary.  All grades will walk concurrently.  There will be music on site.  Additionally, water will be provided during the walk.
  4. How can I help? In addition to assisting your student(s) with pledges, you can sign up to volunteer or come and walk.  Cheer on the kids on the day of the walk or participate with us on Tuesday, October 16th from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  5. What if I’m concerned about the powder getting into the eyes, nose and throat of my child? Participants are welcome to bring bandanas or even dust masks.  We will guide our volunteers to aim below the neck.  Keep in mind that this is a kid-friendly event; the volume of color will be appropriate for fun, not overwhelming or scary.  If a student does not want to participate in the color element of the walk, that child is invited to walk on the inside of the track. 
  6. How permanent is the color, and how should I prepare? Participants should wear OLD white t-shirts, socks, shorts and shoes.  The color should mostly wash out of any item worn.  Of course, if your child wants to keep the colored t-shirt as a souvenir of the event, spray the colors with vinegar and iron it prior to washing.  Participants should also bring a towel or large garbage bag to protect the inside of a car or bus.

Funds raised at this event will go towards:

  • Mobile Chromebook carts: Currently each student in grades 4th – 6th has daily access to a Chromebook.  This year we would like to purchase labs for each 3rd and 2nd grade classroom.  Each lab is approximately $9,500; which includes 36 Chromebooks + 36 slot charging cart.
  • What will students and teachers do if everyone has a device? With the help of 1:1, teachers are more able to differentiate instruction; using both face to face and online instruction.

The walkathon represents all that is really great about Riverview.  Because all are participating, our students can be proud to contribute directly and individually to the school.  On this one day in October, we will come together to support and celebrate our kids. 

Families can come “set up camp” on the grass field and on locations along the course.  Plan to bring folding chairs or a blanket or old clothes and your walking shoes, depending on if you want to walk with us or watch.  No bicycles or pets. 

PTA Sponsored Events

Riverview Elementary Safety Concerns

We need your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY child’s safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority to ensure that students enter and exit cars in a safe and organized way. We ask everyone to correctly follow our pick-up and drop-off procedures. Failure to do so creates chaos, frustration and unsafe conditions. Each family should discuss these loading and walking procedures. Thank you for your continuing support in making Riverview a safe environment for all.

General Precautions:

  • Be your child’s best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety guidelines at all times.
  • No arrivals prior to 8:00AM. No supervision is provided.
  • Please DO NOT STOP in the left lanes of the loading zones. This is a very dangerous location in our parking lot.  No students permitted in parking lot without an accompanying adult.
  • Use crosswalks to cross streets and loading zone lanes.
  • Students are to use the yellow walking/bike path that is painted around the perimeter of the West Parking lot by the Kindergarten playground when leaving school at the end of the school day.  Students may not ride bikes or walk through the parking lot. 
  • Follow all directions from school safety personnel. They can see potential problems you may not.
  • Students are to be picked-up promptly at dismissal. 

Dropping Off:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Drivers may drop-off students along entire length of Loading Zone.
  • Students can unload from PASSENGER SIDE of vehicle only. The driver should remain in the vehicle at all times and all driver side doors are to remain closed. Do not exit your vehicle and enter the building from the loading zone; please park in a stall if you are going to enter the building.
  • Keep pulling forward and fill in all gaps in Loading Zone Lane.
  • Have all school materials including backpack and lunch ready before student exits vehicle.
  • Once your student has exited your vehicle you may exit the parking lot via the bypass lane to the driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Picking up from School:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Student pick-up is available from Loading Zone Lane only.
  • No cell phone use while waiting for your child.
  • Once your child has entered your car on passenger side of vehicle, please exit parking lot via bypass lane to driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Utah High School Athletic Association new rule:

Physical exams are required before you will be allowed to try out.  If you do not have a physical exam turned into Coach Carlson before tryouts begin, you will not be allowed to try out.  No exceptions. The papers that need to be filled out by your doctor can be found at the following link http://sfjhs.nebo.edu/Athletics

The only form that needs to be filled out is the Pre-Participation Exam Form.  If you make the team you will be expected to fill out the other forms.

Grades

Utah High School Athletic Association states that a player on a sports team will maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average and have no more than one F to be able to participate.  Please work hard and keep your grades up.

Tryouts

Tryouts will begin on Monday Nov. 5th immediately after school in the boys gym and will continue every night until the team has been selected.  Please do not schedule anything at this time. You will need to be at tryouts.

I look forward to another awesome basketball season.  If you have any questions please contact me at alec.carlson@nebo.edu

Thank you, Coach Carlson
