Welcome back to another wonderful year. Hanksville Elementary has eight students this year and they are all excited to be in school. Just a reminder for the parents that we will be having a feld trip to Capitol Reef park for a day of hiking and fun, on September 11th. Permission slips need to be turned in By Monday September 9th. Also on September 20th there will be no school for students.
The students at Hanksville Elementary had a blast with their science projects. They worked hard preparing their projects. The student who won first place did their science project on yeast and what would make the yeast rise faster. She discovered the fastest way to make yeast rise was in warm water with cane sugar.
The second place winner did his project on how to make a homemade stethoscope. He discovered that though it was hard to make a stethoscope he was grateful that we have them.
The third place winner did his project on ladybugs.
All the students had fun working on their science projects and learning new things.
“Have you guys ever seen ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’?” Asked Sam to the students of Hanksville Elementary on March 20th. Gabbie and Sam from Spy Hop came to show the students how a stop motion video worked and to help them make a video of their own. They explained that movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas can take many years to make. They worked together to make their background of a jungle. They set up the computer and camera and took many pictures as they slowly moved their pirate and monster across the background.
