Christmas Assembly Full of Cheer, Ho Ho Ho's, and Smashing Fun!

Santa visited Mt. Loafer Students who have been very good this year!  He judged the Ho Ho Ho contest and the winner was Eric Cheney. Students enjoyed singing and feeling the Christmas spirit.  To do a little service at Christmas, Mt. Loafer Students collected 876 cans of food to donate to Tabitha's Way.  Why were students so motivated to collect this much food?  Well, it was to help those in need, but also to throw pies in the faces of some very good natured student council members and our beloved Mr. Roberts.  Doing good for others feels great!

Shout Out to the Student Council!

Mt. Loafer Student Council members give regular service to their school.  Every Thursday council members collect paper from each classroom and take it to the recycling bins.  This is more work than you might think! It takes effort, organization, and dedication.  Thank you for helping our school!

The Utah Symphony is FANTASTIC!

The Utah Symphony performed for 4th graders in Nebo School district!  The music is outstanding, but it is even more fun because the conductor takes time to teach students a little about the symphony.  Students loved clapping some rhythms with the symphony accompanying them.  This is a great experience for our fourth grade students!

The Wax Museum is Wonderful!!!

5th Grade students bring history to life as they read books, write reports and then dress up with a historical figure.  This has become a treasured tradition at Mt. Loafer Elementary.  Years later students will remember 'who they were' for the wax museum.  This year the students were stunning!

New Music Specialist

A Mt. Loafer welcome to our new music specialist, Mrs. Jen Baker!  Mrs. Baker taught first grade in St. George for three years prior to having her family and settling in Salem.  Music is a very important part of her life.  She loves teaching children the joy of music.  We are glad to have her join our Mt. Loafer family!
