Ever since we have been back from Christmas break, all the 6th graders talk about now is how excited/nervous/anxious/happy/terrified they are about going to the middle school next year. The 6th grade teachers have been working really hard trying to prepare them for what's to come. Some of the discussions we have been having are: having A LOT more teachers than just one, having shorter class periods, having different schedules/classes after each semester, having more homework, being more independent/responsible, having more freedom, and of course, how to get into their lockers.

Most of you are likely aware that the Utah Legislature recently passed a law that effectively ends the face mask mandate in Utah on April 10. However, you may not be aware that the “the mask requirements for K-12 schools REMAINS IN PLACE until June 15. Additionally, local officials, like a school board, do NOT have legal authority to end the school mask requirement before this date.”
Exciting things are happening in Computers! We have been learning how to code for the last 8 weeks. The First and Second Graders have used Fuzzies to help learn how to code in Kodable the next week we became a monkey collecting bananas in Code Monkey. We also had a water balloon fight in Code Spark Academy. Breathe a sigh of relief, no one got soaked!

PE has been fun this moth. It’s warming up so we’ve been able to enjoy some time outdoors. We’ve been staying active with fun Star Wars games, ninja turtles, kick ball and having fun working on some jump rope, hula hoop and basketball skills. The kids are been so great and enthusiastic about all the games and learning to work together as a team, be supportive to one another and most importantly having fun. I feel so luck to be surrounded by such amazing kiddos that teach me just as much if not more than I teach them. Meadow Brook is such a great place with such a great community.
