Fifth and sixth grade students worked very hard on science fair projects during the month of January. The afternoon of February 6th, they displayed their projects in their classrooms. Each project was judged, and two students from each class moved on to district. The school and parents were able to walk trough the classrooms and enjoyed the science fair projects as well. The Sierra Bonita Science Fair was a great success.

Students at Diamond Fork Junior High became part of Sierra Bonita’s staff for a day. The 7th grade CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes participated in a job shadow day. Several of those 7th grade students came to Sierra Bonita. Annie Merrill was one of these students. Annie, a student at Sierra Bonita last year, chose to help in Mrs. Sarianne Condie’s class. Annie read with students including her younger sister, Sophie Merrill, who happens to be in Mrs. Condie’s class. The highlight for Annie was sharing the lunch menu during morning announcements. Sierra Bonita loved having 7th grade helpers for the day!
On January 25, 2013 Sierra Bonita held its school wide 3rd grade spelling bee. We are very grateful to our two PTA representatives, Bobbie Bassett and Sasha Taylor, as well as Dr. Walton and Karen Payne, from the community, who volunteered to be on our judge’s panel. Two representatives from each of our four classes were chosen to participate. All eight of these wonderful spellers came very prepared having obviously studied and practiced. Our 3rd grade classes were a great audience and very supportive of their classmates. The spellers were nervous yet confident and did so well that the spelling bee lasted 24 impressive rounds. We’d like to give big congratulations to Jaden Davids who took 1stplace, Xander Hulse who took 2nd place, and Makenna Dockter who took 3rd place. We are already looking forward to our 4th - 6th grade spelling bee which will take place on February 22nd and encourage all those students to prepare early for that great event.
Sierra Bonita students and staff showed their school spirit this week by dressing up. The student council designated a theme for each day of the week.
Thursday-Red vs. Blue
Friday-Extreme Spirit Day
Both students and staff enjoyed participating in Spirit Week!
