The first grade traveled around the world this month to learn about other customs and cultures. Mexico was their last stop and so they got to celebrate with a Pinata!

Also they had a Polar Express day just before Christmas break. The kids came in jammies and got a ticket to board the train where elves served them hot chocolate. While watching the movie they recieved a mysterious box from the North Pole. Inside was a bell necklace and a personalized letter from Santa for each kid. It was a magical fun day!

Hello Students and Families - 

My name is Kylee Dixon and I am thrilled to be the newest faculty member and 4th grade teacher here at Mount Loafer. I grew up in Mapleton Utah, and I just graduated from Utah State University (Go Aggies!) with a double degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and I love what I get to do everyday.

STEM stands for the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Our six graders have been working on some great STEM projects this month. 

1. Build a Boat that can hold the most golf balls.... The students were given tinfoil, cardstock, paper clips and tape and they had to work in groups and engineer a boat.  Once their boats were completed, we had a contest to see whose was able to hold the most golf balls.  The winner held 36! We talked about strategies, volume, and surface area.  

Holiday Traditions

Attributions: 

In Mrs. Wilson class, they talk about different holiday traditions. The first week of December they talked about Hanukkah. Next they talked about the Hispanic tradition of Las Posadas, topping off the week with a piñata. You can see this event in the few clips. Of course, this week they have talked about Christmas.
