Science Has Never Been This Much Fun!

Mt. Loafer's teachers know that students learn best "by doing" - especially in the sciences. 

Club Day involved students from K-6th in hands-on activites and each science club was different; rocketry, chemistry, flight, genetics, geology, and many other disciplines of science.  All the clubs were designed to capture children's natural curiosity, stimulate their interest in science and teach them important science topics along with critical thinking skills.

Mrs. Pruitt...Positive Energy and Kindness!

The secret is out...Mt. Loafer has the best secretary and now the whole district knows it!

Mrs. Pruitt was given the PEAK Award and was recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education on Wednesday, November 13th, at School Board meeting for "raising the bar" on providing exceptional customer service, both internally and externally.

PTO Expressions Contest

The PTO Expression program encourages Mt. Loafer students to explore their artistic talents. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students are encouraged to submit works of art in six arts areas:

  • Dance
  • Literature
  • 3D Art
  • Photography
  • Visual arts

Students were challenged to create art inspired by a specific theme.  The 2013-2014 theme is "Bring On The Bright..."

Honoring All Who Serve

Attributions: 

The signing of the World War I Armistice took place in a railway coach near the battle zone in France. The bugles sounded cease fire and the hostilities ended, marking a most significant moment in world history.

While Veterans Day is primarily a tribute to Americaʼs living veterans, and is typically observed more as a celebration than as a somber remembrance (Memorial Day), it is always appropriate to include a moment of respect for those who gave their lives for our country.

Hats Off to Our Heroes!

This week, students had the opportunity to celebrate Veteran's Day.  In honor of our heroes, the students were invited to wear hats to say, “Hats Off to Our Heroes!”  The students also had a bulletin board where they could write the name of their hero and tell why that person is special to them!  Thanks to all those heroes in our lives!

Books For Teachers!

Thanks to our wonderful PTO, the Mt. Loafer teachers were able to receive new books from the Book Fair for their classrooms!  The PTO set up a wonderful Book Fair and made $3,100.00.  Six-hundred dollars of that was used for books for teachers' classrooms.  The rest of the money went to purchasing books for the library.  Thanks to our great PTO for helping to promote reading at our school!
