4th Grade Gets Top 10 In Nation Recognition For Math

IMG 7253dpi72

Mr. Jared Swanson’s 4thgrade class at Loa Elementary was recognized by Imagine Learning for finishing in the nation’s top 10 during a recent math competition.

The Imagine Math Ready, Set…SOLVE competition took place all during the month of October. Classrooms all across the United States completed over 7 million math lessons, solved over 224 million math problems, and spent 2.5 million hours working on math.

“I am incredibly proud of this class for all of the work that they have put into their schoolwork this year. I think that the fact that they had the honor of being in the top ten in Imagine Math in the country for the month of October shows how much work they have put into their studies,” said Mr. Swanson. 

Through their hard work and dedication, Mr. Swanson’s 4thgraders placed among the nation’s best—and received a Pizza Hut pizza party as the reward for their efforts!

“We’re excited about the performance of our 4thgrade students, and very pleased that they are succeeding in developing their math skills for the future,” said Principal Cherie Blackburn. “Naturally, we’re proud that their efforts paid off with national recognition.”

Congratulations to Mr. Swanson and his students for all their hard work.

A Visit From Wayne County K-9 Officer


On Thursday, October 24th, Wayne County Sheriff Dan Jensen and Deputy Sheriff Micah Gulley visited Loa Elementary with Wayne County’s K-9 Officer, Doc.

The visit was part of Red Ribbon Week--an alcohol, tobacco, and domestic violence prevention awareness campaign.

The students learned how Doc & Deputy Gulley train, just how Doc is used to fight crime in Wayne County, and the way Doc behaves when he’s not on duty.

The kindergarten classes even got a demonstration of how Doc can use his superlative powers of smell to detect hidden drugs. 

Sheriff Jensen also distributed an informative magazine to all the students which outlined the many ways the Sheriff’s Office, and a K-9 officer, keep the community safe.

Doc was a big hit with all the classes, and the students expressed excitement over the fact that Wayne County now has a K-9 officer dedicated to protecting the community and keeping it safe.
