Mrs. William’s Monday Minute-January 13, 2020

January 13, 2020

We have been reviewing the school expectations after returning from winter break. The students are doing a great job of remembering the rules and being friendly with everyone. I am very proud of every student for the great things they do learning in their class and their great behavior throughout the school.

We will be reading the book “The Runaway Wok” about the Chinese New Year. The story is about a boy named Ming. His mother sends him with some eggs to trade for a bag of rice they need for the New Year’s feast and celebration. Ming meets an older gentleman on his way to trade the eggs for rice. Ming makes a trade for a wok instead of rice. The story is about sharing all of the great things we have with everyone. It also teaches us about this significant holiday for the Chinese people that lasts from about mid-January until early February. Everyone eats their favorite foods, they play games and have fireworks. This story is a great way to learn about important traditions and sharing what we have with others.

Monday Minute – Dec 9, 2019

We will be starting Tech Troupe for fourth and fifth grade students in January. Miss Winter will be teaching the course.  Students will learn computer science and technology skills.  The application is due Friday, December 13th.  The classes will be on Wednesdays starting January 8th until February 26th.  There will be 25 students selected to participate.  Students need to be able to attend on a regular basis and be picked up promptly at 4:00 PM.  

The fifth grade had their N.O.V.A. graduation last week. Officer Wekluk from the Sandy City Police Department is our school resource officer. He teaches fifth grade students about life skills that will help students be successful. N.O.V.A. stands for Nurturing Opportunities Values and Accountability. We appreciate all of the support the Sandy City Police Department provides us as a school.

Check out our PTA bulletin board encouraging us to learn about human rights during the month of December.

We also encourage students to provide service sometime during the month!
