Submitted by heidi.groneman on Thu, 12/19/2019 - 16:33

Third graders worked on building the tallest "Christmas Tree" for Fun Friday last week! Their building materials consisted of gumdrops, toothpicks, and three large marshmallows. It was a tricky challenge, but two teams tied for the tallest freestanding structure at 9 inches each. The winning teams were with Brikelle, Pressley, Danna, Esteban, CJ, Callen, Lizzy, Betzy, Kaden, and Jack. Nice work!

3rd grade was invited to visit Zion's bank and spread some Christmas cheer. Each 3rd grader made an ornament to hang on their tree, then they sang a couple of Christmas songs, and enjoyed some Christmas cookies. Merry Christmas everyone!

Mr. Mendenhall’s class was taught a Native American Unit by Shoshana Begay this past November, in honor of Native American Heritage month. Shoshana is from the Navajo tribe, and is a teacher in Nebo Title VI Indian Education. She loves teaching about her culture, and she wanted to teach other students about true Native American cultural as to avoid any misconceptions. Mr. Mendenhall’s class had the opportunity to learn about Native American contributions, clothing, music, dwellings, beliefs, famous individuals, and arts and crafts!
