Volunteers from the Springville Museum of Art visited our 4-6 grades on Wednesday, January 9th. In 6th grade, classes rotated to Mrs. Weier's class for writing and learned about how curating an art exhibition is just like writing an essay! After discussing different works of art, students worked in groups to brainstorm a main idea, select various pieces of art, and write a synopsis to create their own art exhibition.

Sixth Grade Gift Exchange

A few weeks ago the 6th grade decided to do a ¨Secret Santa¨ gift exchange. Each student drew a name out of a box (the box was made out of a book). Everyone was asked to bring a gift to the person they got, even if they didn’t know a lot about that person. The point of this gift exchange was so the 6th graders could better understand what giving means. They did not do this to get a gift but to give a gift. Ashlynn, in Mr. Sargeant’s class said, “I liked how everyone gave a gift. No one didn’t have a gift to open.” Everyone received a gift and everyone was happy.

Mrs. Perkins Christmas Play

HO HO HO! Festivity is brewing in Mrs.Perkins 6th grade class. The class is putting on a holiday play called “What, NO Santa?” They have worked very hard on this play trying to make it perfect. December 18 was the date of their first play. They transformed their classroom so you find yourself in the middle of Santa's living room. The play consists of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, seven elves, announcer, first and second voice and narrator. Each has an important part. It is truly impressive to see how much work they put into it.
