Sometimes change is difficult but it helps us grow in ways not yet known. We are experiencing a change of leadership at Mt. Loafer and are prepared to move forward with this change.
We are so grateful for the time we spent with Mrs. Rudd and send her our love and best wishes as she embarks on her new adventure as principal of Brookside Elementary in Springville. We will miss you, Mrs. Rudd.
Miss Dolman's third grade students are bound to love reading! Her students become excited and enthusiastic about reading when they are presented with the opportunity to participate in Readers Theater. Readers Theater is an activity in which students, while reading directly from scripts, are able to tell a story, perform in groups, and practice using their voice to depict characters from texts.
Students and faculty have had an enjoyable December remembering the events that occurred under Mrs. Rudd's leadership. Thank you, Mrs. Rudd for all the fond memories and friendships.
Students in grades 4th-6th presented the annual Christmas program on Friday, December 16th. The music program was entitled "Sing of Joy" and included both traditional and new Christmas songs. The students performed under the direction of our fantastic music teacher, Mrs. Robin Brown!
On December 9th, both of Mt. Loafer's fifth-grade classes explored historical figures of the world by transforming themselves into a live wax museum.
Each student picked a figure from any genre of fame, whether it was a business figure like Steve Jobs or Milton Hershey, a sports star such as Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan or an historical figure like Betsy Ross or Jackie Kennedy. Each student had to research and write a brief biography to help explain their figure's childhood, their rise to fame, and what they are doing now or when they died.
The student of the month program is meant to promote success in and out of the classroom. The student of the month is chosen based on character, leadership, and citizenship, not necessarily academics. The student of the month shows character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism, and loyalty in creating a positive school environment. This award is designed to nominate and select students who promote and take pride in Mt.
The treasures of Ancient Egypt are the temples and tombs. They serve as a constant reminder of the power and glory of Ancient Egypt. Mr. Applegate and Miss Duvall led 6th grade students into exploring all the mystery and magic of the land of the Pharaohs - ancient Egypt and its civilization, customs, and treasures and culminated the unit with a program full of movement and costumes, and a fun rhyming story. The program was presented to the student body and then again to parents on December 2nd, 2011. Thank you, Mr.
As we all know, Mrs. Rudd will be leaving Mt. Loafer. I also think we are all familiar with the Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas." There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given on one of the twelve days of Christmas.
Beginning on December 6th, we have chosen twelve topics that Mrs. Rudd is passionate about. As a faculty and studentbody, we will spend 12 days focusing on her knowledge, talents and gifts.
The twelve days for Mrs. Rudd will go as follows:
We are at the end of another month, time for the Grizzly Buck Store. Friday, December 2nd is the store. Please return all November reading calendars to school prior to Friday. Each student has the potential of earning three bucks; one for reaching the grade level requirement, an additional buck for each hundred minutes beyond the goal (limit of three). This month there will be an additional reading reward. Spanish 8 Cinemas in Spanish Fork, now called "Water Gardens," is offering a movie ticket to each student who reaches his/her monthly reading goal.
