Reflex Math Fact Fluency

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:15

Reflex Math is a fun, engaging game that focuses on math fact fluency. The program adapts to the individual student through an initial assessment and through continued practice. Mrs. Peck's 5th grade class has implemented the program in recent months, and it has been such a success that Mr. Duncan has purchased full licenses for each classroom to implement by the beginning of next year. The students love it and enjoy using the program. See what some of Mrs. Peck's students had to say about Reflex:

6th Grade Orchestra at the Monster Concert

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Fri, 04/21/2017 - 08:37

Last night, our 6th grade orchestra participated in Nebo's annual Monster Concert. Orchestras from all over the district come together for a night to showcase all of their hard word. These 6th grade students have come to school early every week to learn stringed instruments, and it has paid off. They performed beautifully!

3rd Grade at the Tulip Festival

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Tue, 04/18/2017 - 17:12

Thankfully, the rainy weather held off for our third graders to visit the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point this morning. Small groups split up, navigated the huge park with their maps, and saw so many types of flowers! Not only were there flowers, but waterfalls, animals, and sculptures to see. They had a wonderful time!

2nd Grade Goes to Harward Farms

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Fri, 04/14/2017 - 16:05
Our second grade classes had a wonderful time at the farm today! We learned about bees, baby animals and even saw a sheep being sheared!We learned that meat gives us Z.I.P. Zinc is good for our minds; iron is good for our blood; and protein is good for our muscles. Each student was given a small snack with all foods from ChosseMyPlate.gov to show us what we should be eating each day: fruits, vegetables, protein, grains and dairy. We learned that crops need five things to grow: water, air, food (fertilizer) soil and sun!
