Preschoolers are so excited to finally get back outside after the long cold winter. They love being able to run around chasing friends as “monsters” and just enjoying the “park” as they call it. We look forward to a few more weeks of friends and outside time, before preschool ends for the year!
We’ve been having so much fun in PE. In addition to fun games, lots of exercising and loads of fun we’ve successfully completed the “cha cha challenge” where students do the cha cha slide from a push up position. It’s a very difficult challenge that requires a lot of focus as well as strength. It was fun to see the students push themselves outside of their comfort zones and more fun to see them succeed. PE is so rewarding :)
In Mrs. Nae’ole’s class, each of the students read 4 books in 1 month to earn a P-Party! We celebrated our reading accomplishment with pizza, puzzles, puppets, popcorn, and lots of other things that start with the letter “p.” We are so proud of our mustang students for working hard to reach their reading goals!
This week has been a very special week in Mr. Haslam’s class. Mr. Haslam’s students had the opportunity to write and thank a hero of their choice. Many of the students chose to write to their parents, grandparents, teachers and others who have had positive impacts in their lives. These were very heart warming letters with carful thought. We are so proud of these amazingly thoughtful little scholars.
First-grade think fourth graders are the BEST!! The fourth grade came and interviewed all of the first graders to get to know them better. Then they made the best surprise. They made each student in first-grade little picture books about each individual. The smiles it brought to first grade were priceless and the books were instantly treasures!!! Thank you fourth grade!!!

Our fourth graders got the chance to visit Provo's Pioneer Village and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum on Wednesday, April 12th! They learned so much about the way of life of the pioneers. In the museum, we saw many authenticated artifacts that were brought over by the pioneers to Utah when it was first settled. While there, students also got the chance to see how wool is turned into thread!
