Fourth-Grade's Trip to the Symphony

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Fri, 01/18/2013 - 08:28

What colors do you see when you listen to music? Foothill's fourth-grade had the opportunity to see the many brilliant colors created by the Utah Symphony. Conductor Valdimir Kulenovic instructed the students to envision music in terms of color. They could see relaxing blue when the Symphony performed Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake.” We were taught that music is full of imagery.

During the month of December Mrs. Bushman's class studied about the ancient Greeks.  On Thursday and Friday, December 13 and 14th students participated in a 6th grade version of the Olympic Games.  Each group of 4 students were assigned a Greek city-state.  They created a flag and a group cheer to support each other in the athletic events. The events were "Thumb Wars", an RPS (rock-paper-scissors) competition, javelin throwing (plastic straws), discus toss, and a chariot race.   An opening ceremony and preliminary rounds were held on Thursday.

Third-Grade Day of Service

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Mon, 12/17/2012 - 12:36

Spearheaded by Mrs. Roberts, the third-grade decided that 12-12-12 should be a day of service to people and service men and women stationed in Afghanistan. On that day they tied blankets, wrote Christmas notes, and painted wooden cars. Sergeant Jed Lundell came to accept the gifts and to take them to those who would be able to send them to service men and women in time for Christmas. When Sergeant Lundell came to accept the gifts on Friday December 14th, he awarded the third-grade a plaque of appreciation and Medals of Honor for the items created on our day of service.
