Bridge or Tower?

Kelsey Foster's Students

Today Miss Foster’s class had the choice of building a bridge or a tower in class to see how many pennies it could hold up in a cup. They had to meet the requirements of height and amount of items they could use.  We used an engineering process of trial and error. If the building fails the first time we are able to identify what is wrong and make a change in our design.

As the library finishes up it's year, the kids enjoy a popcorn reward party for returning their books. There was a lot of popcorn eaten and lots of fun Minute-to-Win-It challenges. Ms. Carr and Ms. Naylor's classes tied for the paper airplane challenge, a favorite of the students.

Fourth Grade Program

Swing your partner and do-si-do! The fourth graders put on quite the assembly for our students and parents. They sang songs about our great state of Utah and then our librarian, Cheryl Thurgood, was a great caller for some fun square dancing.

The fifth graders were able to participate in the Hope of America event. This event brings together thousands of fifth grade students to sing patriotic songs while wearing red, white, blue and gold and forming the shape of the American Flag.
