Loa Elementary Preschool Promotion


On May 17th and 18th the 40 students attending Loa Elementary preschool were promoted to the kindergarten. During this school year the students had long time teacher Mrs. Jan Brown as the teacher. Jan’s outstanding paraprofessionals, Iris Peterson and Kathy Woolsey, assisted her. Mrs. Brown introduced children to basic concepts such as shapes, letters, numbers and colors. The students learned nursery rhymes, songs and had many hands on activities. But preschool is about learning much more than what a circle looks like. It's where children first develop a relationship with learning. Children spend most of the preschool day working together with classmates. We are grateful for the support we have had from parents and want to specifically thank Mrs. Brown for a job well done.

It’s A Jungle Out There


On April 28th the 1st graders at Loa Elementary presented the musical It’s A Jungle Out There to the community and fellow LES students. In the play King Leo is a victim of the corporate jungle! He has money, power, and fame, but he still has not found happiness. His trusty servants, Spot and Stripes, ever loyal to the King, begin a quest for the key to happiness. Do the monkeys have the answer? Or maybe the hyenas? Perhaps the secret lies with the elephants. This heart-warming musical play help our 1st graders see that the true meaning of happiness is not money, power and fame, but treasured friendships and life's simple pleasures. The audience was treated to 6 outstanding songs that were performed to perfection. Our kids did an outstanding job and it was a fun musical that was enjoyed by all who attended.

We would like to thank Mrs. Coral Brinkerhoff for volunteering her time and musical talents to the 1st graders and Virginia Jeffery and Mrs. Liz Torgerson’s 5th grade class for helping with the decorations. A special thanks to Mrs. Laura Brinkerhoff and Mrs. Wendy Potter our truly outstanding 1st grade teachers.

Hanksville Elementary School Annual Science Fair

On Friday, March 24, Hanksville Elementary School held their annual science fair.

Mari2ndA science fair project is an exciting and meaningful learning experience for each child. Not only can children enter and compete for ribbons, trophies, and awards, but more importantly children have an opportunity to apply the many skills they are learning in the various academic subjects.

A science fair project cuts across almost every curriculum. Some of the skills the students learn and demonstrate are as follows:

  • Thinking Skills – This is perhaps the most important product of a science fair project. Students put much time, effort, and thought into a project. They see the result of their thinking in the form of a project. They have developed or utilized problem-solving skills.
  • Organizational Skills – Another important skill that students utilize when preparing a project is organization. Students will need the support and advice from teachers and parents, but this is an opportunity to plan, prepare, and organize a project from start to finish.
  • Science – Children have an opportunity to investigate a myriad of topics of interest to them in science. They apply the skills of scientific inquiry when investigating their topics. Students learn to investigate, experiment, and discover the many wonders of science.
  • Language Arts – Children use many language arts skills when preparing a project. They must read for information to better understand their topics. Children utilize library skills and study skills when they research the projects. Writing is also an integral part of each science fair project. Students use these skills when displaying their projects, writing for information from organizations or other sources, and/or writing a paper to accompany the projects.
  • Math – Measurement is an essential component of science projects. Students have opportunities to apply the use of metric measurement and organize data using tables and graphs in meaningful activities.

Students selected scientific areas that were important to them. 11 students participated. All participants set up their projects and gave an oral presentation to the judges. Students followed the scientific method and worked hard to prepare.

Our 2016-17 Science Fair Winners are:

  • 1st place Alyssa Morrill, 4th Grade, project: Growing Crystals
  • 2nd Place: Mari Esplin, 2nd Grade, project: Types of Soil for growing
  • 3rd Place: Adel Schultz, 3rd Grade, project: Cola Corrosion

Thanks to students, parents, Martin & Suellen Esplin and Joe Johnson for planning and preparing the students to participate.
