On Wednesday, November 8, 2017, students from Art City Elementary School shared with the Nebo School District Board of Education some of the opportunities they have to be leaders at school. Art City has a student council that helps with assemblies, they help other students "Stand Strong" and they help the PTA with various activities and service projects . The student action team dedicate their own time during recess and lunch breaks to write skits for the monthly assemblies to teach students to make good choices. The student council and student action team helped Mrs. Murray and Mrs.
On October 25th, Art City Elementary First grade classes had the opportunity to go to the Scera theater to see the play, "Captain Louie". It was a play about friendship and Halloween. The students had popcorn and drinks. First grade students and teachers said, "We had a blast!!"
Art City Elementary school represented Halloween well, "Where's the office staff?" When anyone went into the office on Halloween they could only find Waldo. The lunch ladies decided to go "hunting" and found a "deer" lurking in the lunch room. The kindergarten staff twinned it up while special ed. tried to stay clear of "Cruella de Vil". First grade teachers were quite "Seasonal" and Second grade "Piggies" were not afraid of the big bad wolf.
On October 8th, Art City teachers were seen wearing their "Nebo Hero" t-shirts, We even spotted Mrs. Muirbrook serving lunch in her shirt. Nebo School District Superintendent Rick Nielson knows what a hero is. He arranged to have every employee in the Nebo School District receive a "Nebo Hero" t-shirt and has requested that we wear them certain days of the month. On the front the shirt says, "Nebo Hero Nebo School District" and on the back it says, "Be your Best When it Matters Most". The acronym he uses for a HERO is as follows: H - Heroes Help people with no strings attached
Art City Lunch Ladies Rock!! Our lunch ladies had a lot of fun during National School Lunch week, October 9-13. They were almost as excited as the kids were to see the fire trucks and ambulance pull up on Wednesday and when the Payson police officer came on Thursday. Our lunch ladies are some of Art City's finest heroes. Thank you ladies for feeding us and making lunch fun.
What makes you want to SCREAM? This month students in Ms. Larsen's and Mrs. Luther's class at Art City Elementary wrote about what makes them want to scream. The students studied "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolor art. With a digital camera the students pictures were taken recreating that famous scream face. Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting. Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab.
