Escape From B&B Museum

Submitted by susan.bird on

Third grade students in Miss Bradford’s class had a very special opportunity to participate in a live, physical escape room. Ms. Bracken, a clinical student from UVU, planned, created, and hosted the escape room. Students had to solve clues, put together puzzles, and work as a team to figure out who stole a priceless art print from the famous “B” and “B” Museum.” Right before lunch, the puzzle was solved and the culprit was finally exposed. Students discovered the thief…Miss Bradford, their very own teacher, was the one who stole the art print!

Fifth Grade Visits Spring Canyon Middle School

Submitted by susan.bird on

Our fifth graders had the opportunity to visit Spring Canyon Middle School to tour the school and learn all about what middle school has to offer. The students listened to the counselors talk about what middle school will be like and what classes are offered. Then, they took them on a tour of the school. The students came back excited, overwhelmed and maybe a bit scared. Thanks for hosting us Spring Canyon.

Fourth Grader Visit the Ancient Life Museum

Submitted by susan.bird on

Our fourth graders recently visited the Ancient Life Museum at Thanksgiving Point to learn more about fossils.  In science this year, we have learned about fossils in Utah.  We took a visit to the museum to put our knowledge to the test.  We got to explore the museum and learn about fossils found in Utah.  We had a classroom experience where our guide taught us how to observe fossils.  We got a hands on experience by looking and sorting fossils that have been found in Utah.  Students came back tired but they had so much fun!

Our fifth graders visited the Utah State Capitol Building this week. First we met with Representative Whyte who talked to us about the Capitol building and his job there. He answered some students questions too! Then we were invited to sit in the balcony at the legislative session and our school was recognized. Very cool!
