Service By Color!

Submitted by larraine.nelson on Mon, 10/29/2012 - 14:01

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.

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!

Mt. Loafer Elementary's Art Specialist is Mrs. Kris Bluth. Kris is an important part of the students education experience. She is teaching that artistic education is part of being a well-rounded person. The discipline, creative problem-solving, patience, and productivity that must be used in order to create a piece of art are life skills that anyone can benefit from learning, particularly at an early age.

Mt. Loafer students had a fun day, Friday, wearing their pajamas to school!  This day was the last day of our Red Ribbon Week and the students got  to just relax, wind down, and watch a fun movie in class!   The students were given popcorn for a treat, thanks to our awesome PTO!  Our students have learned that there are much better things to do than to do drugs!  Thanks, Mt. Loafer students, for finding better things to do than drugs and for making a difference by saying "NO" to drugs!
