On Friday, December 15th, Officer McCoy had fun with the sixth graders and showed them the vehicle he uses when on the job as a police officer. Since the beginning of the school year, Officer McCoy has come every week to talk to the students about the importance of maintaining positive values in life.
On Tuesday, December 12, students participating in the school orchestra and choir performed for the other students at Maple Ridge Elementary. The school also sang the Maple Ridge Christmas song. Sixth grade student Spencer Payne performed on the piano as the orchestra played as well.
Sixth grade students presented their montly projects on Friday, December 1st. At the beginning of November, students were given the assignment of researching a planet, or any celestial object having to do with the solar syster, and creating a physical display to go with it. This project was assigned to help reinforce sixth grade core science concepts.
On Tuesday, November 21st, upper-grade students had the opportunity to travel by bus (fancy buses at that!) to BYU, to watch the women's basketball team play against Weber State. Students had fun watching themselves on the jumbotron, dancing to the music, cheering on their team of choice and eating lots of fun snacks. The highlight of the field trip was watching Mrs. Sandberg's third grade class do the chicken dance on the court. Mrs. Sandberg was even fortunate enough to get some extra special attention from Cosmo the Cougar.
