On September 27, 2012 the third-grade classes from  Art City Elementary School had the opportunity to go to Utah Lake State Park.  While on their trip to Utah Lake State Park, the 3rd-graders met with Ranger Allen, who told them what park rangers do and how to stay safe while having fun outdoors.  The students went through the visitor's center and learned about the history of Utah Lake.  They learned about how people used the lake in the past and how we use the lake now.  They also learned about resources and animal species in and around Utah Lake.  They were able to go on a nature walk wit

McKell Murdock's third-grade class headed out to the school garden to harvest our PUMPKINS!  As we harvested, we listed nouns, adjectives and verbs that related to pumpkins.  Each student picked a small pumpkin (to be used for their term 1 book report) and as a class we picked two HUGE pumpkins. We love the garden!

The first week of school Mckell Murdock's third-grade class did an author study on Tyler Whitesides the author of the book Janitors. We started reading his book Janitors as a class read-a-loud.  Janitors is about a young boy, Spencer, who finds out his school is full of magical creatures (toxites) that inhibit the childrens' learning. Miss Murdock's class is really liking this book so far!

Submitted by julia.murray on Thu, 09/27/2012 - 14:38

September 24-28 will be Art City's Green Ribbon Week. Green Ribbon Week focuses on preventing pedestrian and automobile injuries. Children are at greater risk for pedestrian related injuries due to their small size and inability to judge distances and vehicle speeds.

Please have your child use the green ribbon that was sent home to tie on their bag or backpack as a reminder that green means "go" safely while traveling on the streets.

The upcoming events for the week are as follows:

Monday: Poster Contest
