More Fossils in Fourth


Fourth-graders are learning even more about fossils!  One type of fossils they have learned about are fossils in which the organism is fully preserved in ice, amber, or tar.  To demonstrate students used a pipe cleaner and hot glue to represent an insect getting stuck in amber.  


Mrs. Van Ausdal

Kindergarten has been learning about penguins. We measured ourselves to an Emperor Penguin and practiced keeping an egg on our feet as daddy Emperor Penguins.



In fourth grade, students learn about fossils.  They learn about the different types and fossils, how they are formed, and where these fossils can be found in Utah.  

The first type of fossils students learned about was imprint fossils.  After learning about them, students made their own mold and cast fossils using clay, sea shells, and plaster of paris.  




Fifth-graders thrill the kindergarten with a recorder performance.

Happy New Year!

What a wintery welcome we had coming back to school today!  We appreciate your patience with the schedule change and hope you all had a safe and wonderful Christmas break.  Here are a few pics from our Christmas Assembly.  We had SHHS choir come and sing, who were truly amazing.  We thank them for sharing their talent with us.  We also had each grade level take a turn singing a Christmas song.  A big thanks to our music teacher, Miss Priday, for all of her hard work in teaching and preparing our students for this fun school tradition.
