Camp Eagle 2018 has begun! There has been a great turn out of students so far. Camp Eagle is being held at Larsen Elementary this year and is June 4th-June 28th. Monday through Thursday. There is no summer school on Fridays. Summer school starts daily at 8:00 am and ends at 12:00 pm.
This year we have several wonderful Educators contributing their talents to help students expand their minds this summer. Some of the subjects and Educators include:
Poetry with Lisa Bickmore and Analysa Allison- students are brushing up on their reading and writing skills. Students have been introduced to several different poetic forms and are encouraged to draw upon their own experiences, memories, feelings, and perceptions to create poems of their own. Students are encouraged to draw illustrations that relate to their poems as well.
Arts and Crafts with Lapita Frewin- This week Lapita is teaching our students how to make American Indian inspired ornaments for a tree we are helping decorate for the Festival of Trees in December. Some ornaments include miniature handmade drums, canoes, Pendleton animals such as buffalos, sheep, and horses, and dream catchers.
Special Guest this week is Donna Eldridge- An outreach coordinator for the School of Medicine at the University of Utah. Students have been introduced to the excitement of STEM learning.
Math & Reading with Shoshana Begay- Students have been making art projects that relate to math. Every day all students read a book before they attend classes. The younger students have an older buddy help them read a new book each day.
P.E. with Natalie Billie- Each day our students get a full 40 minutes of playing outdoors games.
Preschool with Betty Tanner and Teacher Assistant Barbara Allison- Students ages 3 to 4 attend preschool daily. They have several hands-on activities to introduce them to counting, the alphabet, nursery rhymes, and of course physical activity of playing outside for these little ones to get their wiggles out.
Early morning dance classes with Alfredo Quintana, Cody Singer, Chelsea Thompson, Amber Fregoso, and Shauny Talk- Students spend about an hour learning grass, hoop, jingle, and fancy. Dance class starts right at 8:00 am.
Things to look forward to:
June 25-27th: we will be having some field trips, and families are invited to attend. Please contact Eileen Quintana to sign permission slips.
June 28th: We will have a exhibit displaying student work at 5 pm before the Pow-Wow. Nebo Title VI Annual Pow-Wow will be held at Larsen Elementary 6 pm to 8pm.
