Community Building in the Cafeteria

Submitted by arlene.haymond on Fri, 09/28/2018 - 19:39

At Westside, our older students take turns serving in the cafeteria. The younger students enjoy seeing older siblings, neighbors, and friends in the lunch lines. Most students can't wait to be old enough to help serve during lunchtime. Several other students help keep the tables clean and help young students as needed. Along side of the best Lunch Ladies in the world, our student helpers keep our cafeteria humming with good food, cheerful chatter, and building community in the Cafeteria!

Thank You Fire Fighters

Submitted by arlene.haymond on Tue, 09/25/2018 - 06:45

Mrs. Harrison's second graders wrote thank you letters to the Fire Fighters battling the fires in our area. 

Mrs. Herrman's fourth grade class also made cards for the Fire Fighters.. They have a special connection with Mrs. Herrmann's parents being evacuated and staying with her.

The fourth graders in Mrs. Lane's class also participated in writing letters to the Fire Fighters.

We all appreciate their hard work and dedication they have provided for our area. Nebo School District delivered the letters and cards directly to the Fire Fighters.

Meaningful Math

Submitted by arlene.haymond on Tue, 09/18/2018 - 16:38

Mr. Bradford, our math specialist, presented math lessons to many of our classes. Mrs. Crook’s class learned about "Growth Mindset" and how we can all learn how to do new and hard things. Second graders experienced new ways to look at math problems. He finished by throwing marshmallows to students to catch in their mouths. Many who thought they couldn’t do it found that it wasn’t as hard as they thought.
