Using movement to demonstrate meaning and emotion, students were introduced to the world of dance with the help of the Ballet West company from Salt Lake City. During their engagement at Meadow Brook, students were invited to join the dancers in their warm-ups, learning intricate spins and jumps to practice and exercise. In their performance of Sleeping Beauty, the ballet dancers used the whimsical music of Tchaikovsky’s waltz to showcase in grand costume the story of fairies, a cursed princess, an evil king, frisky kitties, and the power of an awakening kiss from a handsome prince.
This week in 4th grade students have been learning about sound. They have learned that sound is a vibration and that it travels in waves. Students learned that higher the sound the more oscillations. Students demonstrated their understanding of waves by using jump ropes and showing how sound waves travel.

This week in First Grade we have been exploring adding adjectives to make our writing more exciting! We first began by using adjectives to describe lovable Olaf. We took a noun, such as his arms, and added adjectives to describe it and make it more colorful, such as brown, short arms. Then we had the chance to create our own snowman and write sentences with adjectives to describe them to our friends. We can't wait to see how many adjectives the students use in their writing!
In Kindergarten we learned the importance of being a responsible citizen in all of our different roles which included our homes, communities, and our planet. We used our knowledge to complete a shared partner writing. We loved helping and supporting each other with this task!
Fifth grade had a fantastic time at the Utah State Capitol this week! They were excited to watch the House of Representatives and Senate vote on new bills. Representative Whyte was able to step out of the voting session to speak with our class for a bit. It was amazing to see our Utah Government at work!
