Putting the Pieces Together in Leadership Academy

Masterpieces by Park Panthers Photo and Article by Adam Gull

Students are branching out in Leadership Academy the next few days.  They are learning about Mosaic art and creating their own little masterpieces.  Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. It is a technique of decorative art or interior decoration.

Each week students learn about a leader in history in many areas like art, poetry, science, etc.  The leader this week is a leader in Mosaic art known as Gustav Klimt.  Students learned the art form and have created their own Christmas Mosaic masterpiece.

The 4th grade received a visit from Museum on the Move today. They are a traveling museum from The Natural History Museum of Utah in Salt Lake City. They came to teach part of the 4th grade Science Core including a study of Rocks and Minerals, and Fossils. Students were able to observe, infer and record the information they gathered as they handled the fossil and rock specimens.

The Power of Parent Volunteers

"At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents." -Jane D. Hull

The halls of Park Elementary have a few more faces than normal on a typical school day.

  I noticed this one day walking back to my office.  I thought to myself how wonderful it is to see more and more parents in the classroom and in the hallways working with students and helping teachers. 

Thank You SF 17

“All Gave Some and Some Gave All” –Billy Ray Cyrus

Today we honor our Veterans who have served our country so bravely.  At Park Elementary, students know the importance of this day.  It is a day to be grateful.  It is a day to remember.  It is a day to be proud to be an American.  As a school, we wanted to give back to our Veterans.  Knowing that what we have to give is so little compared to those that gave so much.
