|What a year it has been! This year in A Form we have spent a lot of time learning all about our beautiful state. We hope you've enjoyed being part of the Utah Explorer's Club and seeing your children perform in the Utah program in January. This week, our students are embarking on an Oregon Trail simulation to more fully understand what it was like for the 350,000 emigrants who traveled westward by foot, horse, or wagon. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to use the math and reading skills that they have accumulated this year, as well as experience the journey of American pioneers. As the year comes to a close, we have one last celebration to bring together all that we have learned about Utah. A Form's Utah Day will be held on Wednesday, May 29th. In order for this to run successfully we will need 8-10 parents who can run game stations and 1-2 parents to help with food. Parents need only help from 9 until 1.|
|Are you looking for ways to keep your children busy during the summer? Summer is a great time for fun and learning; our Summer School provides lots of both. It's also a great way to prepare children to return to school in the fall.
This year's Summer School will be held the week of August 12th - August 16th (Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.) The program is for students entering 1st through 6th grade. New and returning students are welcome! Here are some of the exciting things that will take place in Summer School this year.
1st and 2nd Grade: (with Mrs. Giles) Students will delight in playing interactive games to review reading and math skills. They will also make time to be creative and artistic; art projects inspired by the outdoors will be part of their experience.
3rd and 4th Grade: (with Mrs. Cross) Writing creative poems about summer activities, as well as painting with watercolors will be part of this summer school experience. Students will review math facts and create their own math facts board game. They will apply science to lemonade making for a fun experiment.
5th and 6th Grade: (with Mr. Alm) Students will engage in some exciting art projects as well as creative writing. Playing NBA Math Hoops will allow students to practice math facts and review percents and decimals in a board game that combines NBA player statistics and math. They will learn more about science through experiments that produce both physical and chemical changes.
We are looking forward to our second Carden Art Festival which will be held on Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22. This will be a special opportunity for families to view student art (Jr. K - E Form).
On the evening of Tuesday, May 21, we will host an evening program and open house from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Artist Howard Lyon will be the featured speaker, after which families can view student art displays. Each student has participated in this Art Festival, which offers a visual walk through our Carden Memorial art curriculum. As you explore each area, you'll be able to see the progression of knowledge and skills through the grades.
We are so excited for our Wax Museum! Here are a few reminders to ensure a fun-filled event.
Tuesday, May 14th: Tri-fold board and costume must be brought to school in anticipation of the Wax Museum the following day. The tri-fold needs to include the following: At least 10 facts, at least 3 pictures, and a timeline with at least 10 important dates.
Wednesday, May 15th: The Wax Museum will take place in the auditorium from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Family and friends are invited to attend. From 2:30-3:00 p.m. parents will have exclusive access to the museum. We hope visitors will learn more about these famous people by observing our own version of a Wax Museum. We are looking for two volunteers to help usher groups into the Wax Museum and hold the doors. If you would like to volunteer, please let us know.
