Kindergarten Read Across America Day

Friday was Read Across America day for kindergarten students.  Students learned about a variety of states from each of the kindergarten teachers.  They were able to learn all about the swamp and animals of Florida, the beautiful trees and beaches on the coast of Oregon, the bears of Alaska and the cowboys and cowgirls of Texas.  During each lesson students engaged in activities related to the state such as participating in the Texas Two Step dance and using gummy bears to add and subtract with Alaska. Each state included  books read about those states such as Alaska's Three Bears, Armadillo Rodeo, Down In The Swamp and Beach Day.  Then students used their own copy of the United States map to locate each of the states they learned about and mark on the map where they had "visited" that day.  Another wonderful day!  The kindergarten teachers would like to thank all those who sent in postcards.  They have received lots of postcards from all over the world and are excited to locate them on their maps when they arrive in the mail.

Sierra Bonita's Children's Choir

Choir members woke up early every morning for weeks and weeks to practice for choir.  They worked really hard getting everything ready for the March 5th and 6th performances.  The choir did two performances, one for the school and one for all the parents.  The sixth graders did a really great job with their solos, their narrations, and also playing the musical instruments.  The choir thought it was really fun to learn songs in different languages.  They learned to sing a Chinese song, an African song, and a Latin song called “Panis Angelicus.”  One of the favorite songs was “Skip to My Lou” because it was fast paced and included hand motions.  The choir members would really like to thank Mrs. Thueson as the choir director and Mrs. Pickett at the piano, for all of their hard work.  Choir was a lot of fun and the students can’t wait to do it again next year!!!

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!

3rd Grade Spelling Bee

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.
