A Form's Utah Day

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.

Summer School

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.

The Mile Run

Dear Parents,

It has been such a privilege to work with your children in P.E. this year. They brighten our lives here at Carden, especially on rainy days. The much anticipated mile run is finally here, weather permitting. We will be ready, set, and running the mile Monday, April 29 and Tuesday, April 30 of next week depending on which day your child has P.E. I ask for your assistance in helping the students come prepared with good sturdy athletic shoes, water bottles, sunscreen, and inhalers if necessary. If your child needs to be medically excused, he or she will need to come to class with a note in hand. Otherwise, all students will be expected to run the mile or half-mile according to their grade level requirements (UP runs the half mile and A Form through E Form run the mile). with any questions. Thank you for the opportunity to see the good and watch your children grow. I hope they all will beat their initial times from the start of the year.
