It Pays To Read - January

Once again the students piled into the gymnasium to see if it was their lucky day to win a bike.  I'm sure the City office could hear the excitement!  Even though there are only two bike winners per assembly, many other prizes were given away.

During the Kindergarten to Third grade assembly, 57 students won books, free passes to Classic Skating or Hang Time, or other prizes. The bike winner was MaKylah Gracie!

In the Fourth to Sixth grade assembly, 68 students won books, free passes to Classic Skating or Hang Time, or other prizes.  The bike winner for this assembly was Aubry Hinckley!

During this assembly Mr. Argyle tried an experiment.  He called five winners to the front of the assembly and asked them to stand together and face their classmates before they could pick thier prize.  Then he asked the other students to cheer really loud for them.  The facial expression on each student changed from somber or embarrassed, to a SMILE.  It just goes to show what happens when we cheer for each other.

Good job to everyone who read!  Keep it up.

On January 22, the 4th Grade held their second annual "Write Nite."  It was a huge success with about 80% of students and parents in attendance.  Information was given to parents about how to make reading and writing more fun at home.  Everyone  who came had a wonderful time and many prizes, books, and materials were given away.  To go along with our Utah history curriculum students performed pioneer dances and songs for their parents.  They did an amazing job!
