6th Grade Diamond Fork Field Trip

Written by Kristen and Lacy

On Friday, September 11, 6th grade went on a field trip to Diamond Fork Canyon.  One of the games we played was the ¨A¨ game. This was a teamwork game. There were ropes attached to a giant letter A.  We got in a circle and people grabbed the ropes and pulled the letter A up.  The object of the game was to get the water without touching the ground.

6th Grade Hot Air Balloons

Article by Mila, Justice and Dallin

A few days ago Mrs. James and Mr. M’s class made hot air balloons for science.  Some of them were a success, others were not. Some went very far, to the train tracks! Others only went a couple of feet. Most of them went really high like over the school! Some only went high like over the fence.  Some of the balloons had a great shape but others not. We found out that the best shape was a light bulb shape and the rectangular prism shape. The rectangular prism one went to the train tracks. All the kids had a great time and enjoyed flying them over and over again.

Family Movie Night


To say thank you to our wonderful and supportive parents, the school held a family movie night on Friday, September 11, 2015.  Students and their families were invited to the school to enjoy an outside movie on the ‘big screen’.  The lawn filled up quickly with blankets, chairs, excitement and laughter.  Popcorn was gobbled, books were given away, water bottles were chilled, and delicious fry bread was served (talk about a long line!).  It was so fun to see parents from our community with their families (and even teachers with their families) come together to kick off the new year.  Thank y

Maple Mountain High School football players made an appearance to several classrooms last Friday.  The players read to students and threw a ball around to show off their skills.  Students enjoyed interacting with the big high school kids.

Thanks to an Eagle Scout project, our school has a bright colorful map of the United States out by the playground.  The students are loving it!





The Sorting Hat

Miss Ledingham

Miss Ledingham's class in 5th grade has the theme of Harry Potter. 26 people got invited to Hogwarts. We did the sorting hat and everybody had a blast. There are four tables in our class room and the names are...... Gryfindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin.  Gryfindor's are brave.  Hufflepuff's are loyal.  Ravenclaw's are smart. Slytherin's are ambitious.  Ask your child which house they are in.

All Quacked Up But keeping His Word


It was promised that if the school met their goal for raising more money for the American heart Association than they did last year, then Mr. Pitcher would put on a duck and strut ....or waddle during lunch.  As you can see, our devoted principal kept his word!  We are proud of him and the students and parents for working together to raise $7000 for a worthy cause!

Fourth Grade Adventures

April Smith's Class

We went to Heritage Park on May 11, 2015.  We went to the park and started by riding the train and seeing the buildings that they have there.  Then we went to the school and acted like we were back in the time of the pioneers.  The school was only one big room.  One of the main rules was that ladies always go first.  The girls had to curtsy and the boys had to bow and then say their names.  In the pioneer school, if you were being disobedient or rowdy, you would have to stand in the corner with your arms help up behind your back.  If you continued to be rowdy, you had to hold books, and the
