Mt. Loafer was full of spooky, scary, and funny students on October 31st! Parents came to watch the ghouls and goblins parade around the school, led by one frightening and scary witch! The students also enjoyed a lot of fun activities, thanks to parents and teachers! The students were also given some Witches Brew at lunch time! It was a fun Halloween Day!

Most Creative Costumes: Aisha Paxton, Anna Marie Barton, Josie Wright, Olivia Andrus, Stone Cushing, Lily Christensen, Jordan Moulton, Omaya Tyler and Aubrey McCarthy.
Friday marked the end of our first term and also was the day to celebrate the good citizens of Mt. Loafer! Elaine Brewster came to our school and presented some wonderful stories centered around Halloween for all those students who didn't have any tickets! Ms. Brewster showed some cool instruments and had some students help her with music for part of the stories. She had great costumes and kept the students mesmerized with her fun tales!
Friday was a special day for Andrew Heaps! Andrew won the drawing for a bike from Ken Garff. All those students who have been reading and have met the monthly goals were able to put their names into a drawing for a bike. Andrew's name was drawn! Congratulations, Andrew! Thanks to Ken Garff for supporting our readers! Keep reading Mt. Loafer Grizzlies!
This month, Mrs. Killian brought a gigantic pumpkin to school that she grew in her garden. She had a contest to see who could guess the weight of the pumpkin. The winner got to take that pumpkin home and Paige Paxton was the lucky winner! Paige's guess was 108 pounds which was the exact weight of the pumpkin! Congratulations, Paige!
Students at Mt. Loafer have worked extra hard this month to do kind acts of service for others. On Friday they showed what they did this month by wearing the color that represented the kind act. Students wore black if they did something kind, purple if they spoke kindly to someone, and orange if they kept their kind act a secret! Here are a few things that students did:
Evelyn Bushman helped her brother with his homework.
Paige Youd gave a friend a hug.
Kiki Wallentine helped his mom with her broken leg.
Angelica Nelson tried to speak kindly to others.
Our first grade students were able to celebrate Pumpkin Day on Friday! They did many fun things with their pumpkins, such as reading books about pumpkins, making food with pumpkin, drawing faces to go on their pumpkins, but best of all they got to carve their pumpkins! Thanks to our first grade teachers for making this a special day!
One of the many ways Macey's Grocery in Spanish Fork gives back to our communities is through their School Cents program. Schools are preselected by each store location and students and families are asked to turn in their Macey's receipts. The more receipts the schools collect, the larger the donation. This year Macey's donated $100.00 to Mt. Loafer Elementary. Thank you, Macey's, for supporting and encouraging the educational pursuits of Mt. Loafer's children!
On Tuesday, October 16th, our school celebrated a special day just for our principal-Mrs. Killian! Mrs. Killian has done such an awesome job leading our school! Many students had some fun things to say about her:

Katie Baker said, "She is always willing to help."
Lincoln Van Tassell said, "She's fun!
Luke Reynolds said, "She's really nice!"

Wednesday, October 17th, the students and many of their parents came early to school to read books and eat a doughnut together.
