The Utah County Stormwater Coalition, a county-wide education program who's goal is to protect our waterways and enhance our quality of life, visited Salem Elementary fourth-graders. Students had fun learning about the common water pollutants and what they can do to help keep our lakes and streams clean.
As part of the GAINS (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools) program, Salem Elementary 3rd-6th grade teachers have been dancing with their students! Dance Integration, as with all Arts Integration, is a growing field that employs the arts to teach core concepts in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. Nebo School District and Salem Elementary are honing their skills at Arts Integration! 3rd grade danced as they learned about angles, rays, line segments, and end points.
Students look forward to the stories that our principal, Mr. Welburn shares with us. This month he read Too Many Toys by David Shannon. It is about a boy who has so many toys that it is time to give some away, but there is one toy he can't part with, and that is a box! It was a fun story that reminded us that sometimes all we need to have fun is a little creativity and some imagination.
