Yesterday the fifth graders participated in their annual track meet at Springville High School. The weather was chilly but the kids ran hard (and long jumped and threw softballs as well!) and everyone had a great time!
Springville Jr. High School
Fourth graders enjoyed taking a step back in time last Friday at our pioneer day. We trekked to the Civic Center park for a day of games and past times enjoyed by the pioneers. Students learned to sew buttons, made rag dolls, hammered nails into wood, made buzz saw toys, and listened to tall tales, along with many other fun activities. We ended the day by trekking back to school and making our own ice cream! Students had a lot of fun living like pioneers for the day.
Last week our sixth grade students participated in their Springville track meet. The weather was a little rainy, but it was a great day!
Last week the sixth grade students went on an awesome field trip to The Leonardo museum in Salt Lake City. The Leonardo is a museum with hands-on science activities to create and explore. The kids were able to see a lot, do a lot, and had a great time!
During the month of March the students at Westside worked just a little bit harder than usual on their reading. This week we had several assemblies to honor such outstanding work. Each assembly was attended by two to three grade levels, and at each one names were drawn for kids to choose prizes or to shoot baskets, with money awarded for each basket scored. Three grand prize winners were also chosen to receive $50 savings bonds. We are so proud of all of our Westside kids who work hard to improve their reading and have fun with it each day!
This morning the kids at Westside were treated to a wonderful assembly put on by Marcia Knorr. The kids learned all about American history through music as the group played various instruments and sang songs that had to do with events such as the Gold Rush, the Civil War, and the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. For each song one or two students also came up to help with the performance, and the rest of the students kept the beat or sang along. The assembly ended with a fun twist as two teachers were called up for the last song to portray a cowboy rounding up her steer.
This week we are having our Buy One Get One Free Book Fair! The fair will be open today from 4:30 - 6:30 with a Family Reading and Activity Night from 5:00 - 6:00. It will also be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 - 3:45. We hope to see you there!
Today the kindergarten, first, and second grade kids who participate in the Spanish Immersion program put on a fantastic assembly. Each grade performed a song or a dance, and then all three grades combined to perform one last song. The kids did a wonderful job!
