Mt. Loafer students were able to learn a lot about the great state of Utah, thanks to the Fourth Grade! Each year the students choose a Utah county to research and present their discoveries at the annual county fair! They learn about the exciting places to visit, available resources, and fun facts from their county. Thanks, fourth grade students, for your hard work!
Gathered around tables, laying on the floor and hunched in corners in Mt. Loafer Elementary Wednesday were moms and dads and children sharing books and reading to each other for Parents and Pastries, part of the PTO bookfair. The purpose for Parents and Pastries is a chance for families to celebrate and communicate the value of reading and literacy. Thank you for attending!
Mrs. Olsen knows how to get kids to learn their sight words...make it fun!
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:
- 3D Art
- Visual arts
Students were challenged to create art inspired by a specific theme. The 2014-2015 theme is "Unlock the Mystery"
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.
Student council members have been busy advertising and preparing for the GRAND OPENING of the student store. It paid off and so far, has been a success! Store hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:40 - 8:55. Many school supplies (with our cool Mt. Loafer logo) can be purchased for just a dime. Visors are 25 cents and water bottles are 50 cents. Student council members work as clerks selling items, managers who restock supplies, and advertising agents.
Congratulations to some outstanding students!!

Each year Mt. Loafer 4th grade students learn about Utah government. Today, they were able to see where the branches of government do their work. Students were able to meet the leader of the executive branch of government, Governor Gary Herbert! He had fun with the students and asked them to show him a Mt. Loafer grizzly growl, which they gladly did for them. He also encouraged students to get as much school as they could...the goal being college or trade school. Next students saw where the legislative branches of our state government meet. And finally they sat in the Supreme court.
