SAGE Score Achievement!!

Boy with robot 

Time to brag about our amazing students for a minute. You may have read about how, on average, SAGE scores are lower across the state this year.

Amelia Earhart Elementary students raised their Science SAGE score by 11 points last year. 11 POINTS! That is a huge achievement! We have a strong STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) emphasis in our school, and in addition to receiving excellent instruction in their regular classes, our students are able to participate in Before and After-School STEM programs like Robotics. In fact, our students took 1st and 2nd places at the Robotics catapult competition at BYU last year against students from all over the district!

We are so proud of our students, and are grateful to their teachers and families for encouraging them to achieve great things. Way to go Aviators!

HALLOWEEN LETTER TO PARENTS

 

 

 

Dear Parents,

With Halloween coming up next week, your children are probably getting excited to celebrate. If your student(s) are allowed to dress up, we ask parents to be mindful of a couple of things:

  1. Any costume should allow the student to be easily identified.
  2. Due to the recent negative issues in both the state and nation regarding adults dressing up as clowns, we recommend that any parent coming to a school not dress up as a clown or wear masks at the school.

Thank you in advance for helping keep the Halloween celebrations at our schools safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Thank you,

Gary WilsonAssistant SuperintendentProvo City School District 

Amelia Earhart students may dress up for Halloween.  Our K-6 parade will begin at 9:30 a.m.  As a reminder, costumes should not include fake blood, weapons (of any kind), or masks.  The gym will be available for parents to view the costumes.  Thank you!

 

Fall Break!

Don't forget--Fall Break starts tomorrow!! There will be no school October 19-24. See you back here on Tuesday, October 25!

Red Ribbon Week!

Red Ribbon logo

 

Red Ribbon Week begins right after Fall Break!  During the week we will learn how Drugs and Alcohol have major impacts on our brain and well-being. We'll also have some fun along the way with Themed Days!

 

Tuesday 25th - Wear Red Day- Stop Drug and Alcohol Use 

Abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs is costly to our Nation, exacting more than $700 billion dollars annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity and health care.  Let’s cut the costs and be a part of the solution by saying no to Drugs and Alcohol.  

 

Wednesday 26th - Crazy Hair Day- Don’t let Drug’s make you crazy 

Did you know that underage drinking can hinder how a young brain develops, damaging the impulse control/good judgment area of the brain, and harming the learning/memory parts of the brain? While the damage may not show up right away, when underage drinkers have to solve complex relationship problems or higher-level math equations, for example, performing those mental tasks may be more difficult. Don’t let your mind get Crazy. Say no to Drugs and alcohol.

Thursday 27th - Silly Sock Day- Run away from Drugs and Alcohol

Underage drinking isn’t a harmless rite of passage. Alcohol use among children is strongly correlated with violence, poor academic performance, promiscuity, arrest and many other dangers.  Run away from Drugs and Alcohol so that you have a better chance for success.

Friday 28th - Jersey Day- Pick a Winning Team and Say no to Drugs

Did you know that Research shows kids who regularly eat as a family (at least five times per week) are 33 percent less likely to use alcohol.  So talking to your parents or guardian about the importance of eating a meal together at meal time can help us stay drug free.  Choose a winning team today and eat a meal together.

Monday 31st - Costume Day- Say Boo to Drugs

As we have learned during Red Ribbon  week Alcohol and Drug abuse have major impacts on our brain and well-being.  Let’s keep our bodies and minds safe and say BOO to Drugs.

Thank you for your support of Red Ribbon Week and the Hope Squad.

 

Fun Run 2016!


We had our Fun Run on a beautiful October morning!  Friday, October 7 couldn't have been prettier.  The kids had such a great time with their families, classmates, and teachers.  A lot of money was raised for field trips, from which all the students will benefit.  A big "Thank You" to all the wonderful parents who donated prizes for the children.  It was a huge success!  For more photos, head on over to our Facebook page!

Bike Week!


Last week was Bike to School Week at Amelia Earhart Elementary. The children who walked, biked, skated, scootered, or skate boarded to school were awarded a ticket each day.  Some people got creative and made bike "trains" of kids headed to school!  

Daily winners were drawn and given a cool water bottle.  At the end of the week, two Grand Prize winners were chosen, and each received a new bike donated by the Provo Bicycle Collective!  Runners-up received awesome prizes like spoke lights, bike bells, and bike locks.  Thanks so much to the PTA and Provo Bicycle Collective for such an exciting and healthy week!

Amelia Kindergarten Mystery Readers

 

We love books!  This year at Amelia Earhart, our Kindergarten children welcome Mystery Readers.   A Mystery Reader may be a parent, grandparent, or friend of a child.  The children do not know who will be coming to our class to share a favorite book.  We are so surprised and excited when we have a guest.

In Mrs. Gunn's class, Mystery Reader and father, Ricky Rubio, shared two of Ricky’s favorite books.  

He shared "GO AWAY BIG GREEN MONSTER" and "Star Wars."  We learned that a Jedi uses his words to solve problems.  He does not fight.  We also learned that monsters are pretend.

Dad and son with books

Mystery Reader, and mother Emily Lamas shared one of Megan’s favorite books.  She read "There was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea."   This book made us laugh and laugh.

Message from Mr. McCarty

****************************************************************

Dear Parents and Students of Amelia Earhart,

 

I hope that each of you is having a wonderful summer.  I look forward to school starting this month, and I know it is going to be a great year!

 

I know that many of you are excited to find out who will be your child's teacher.  Please plan on coming to Amelia Earhart on August 3rd anytime between 3:30-6:30pm.  We will have computers set up to assist parents in updating their contact and emergency contact information online.  After that, you will be given a packet with information including who will be your child's teacher.

 

If you are unable to make that time, the office will be open to do the same process on August 4th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.  

 

We do need parents there to give the information, so we will not be able to give it if just your child shows up.

If those times do not work for you, we will be sending out the packet in the mail on August 8th and it should arrive shortly after that.

 

Thanks, and have a great rest of the summer!

 

Sincerely, Mr. McCarty

  Chain Reaction to Kindness Video

Our Kindness Club has produced another great video to help teach us all some skills we can try to be more kind to those around us. They teach us that we can start a Chain Reaction of Kindness by doing one small kind act and that kind act leads to another kind act, and so on. Thank you Kindness Club for all your amazing work this year! We love all your videos and we all appreciate your examples of kindness!

  Earth Day Activity

In honor of earth day, each student in Mr. Hoehne's class made a paper maché earth and painted them to go along with the sixth grade science core focusing on earth's axis tilt and it's revolution around the sun. 

Our next goal will be to hang our model earth's around the classroom at 23.5 degrees to help us remember that the earth's tilt on its axis causes the seasons on earth to happen.

Happy Earth Day!

  

Mrs. Seamons Receives the Building on Excellence Award

 

Our incredible music teacher, Mrs. Linda Seamons, has been chosen to receive the Building on Excellence award through the Provo School District! We are so happy that Mrs. Seamons is being recognized for her hard work and dedication to all the students of our school. She is amazing! Always one of the first teachers to arrive at school in the morning and one of the last to leave, she works hard to make sure her students receive the best music education possible. She has worked hard to receive grants to pay for enriching materials to help her students gain a love for music and learning. She directs our school choir and puts countless hours into planning for and executing amazing performances. Our school has one of the larger choirs in our district because Mrs. Seamons makes it such a rewarding experience for everyone. Students learn to play the recorder and the ukulele and have the opportunity to play many other rhythm instruments during their time with her. 

This award is very well-deserved and we are so happy for Mrs. Seamons!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  PTA Cinco de Mayo Carnival Coming Up Soon

Local Author/Illustrator Visits with ProvoReads Winners

Friday afternoon, the winners of the ProvoReads contest had the opportunity to attend a presentation by Nathan Hale, a local author and illustrator of the very popular Hazadous Tales series. After the presentation, students were able to go meet Mr. Hale and visit with him. What a fun event!

 

The Spring Break Reading Challenge was a Success

Thank you to the students who participated in our Spring Break Reading Challenge. We are blown away with the amount of reading that was done during Spring Break! We had just about 200 students who took the challenge and those 200 students read a total of 77,756 minutes in just a week's time!  We had many students who read 5 and 10 percent more than the required amount! Two of our students read over 2,000 minutes!  Pretty impressive!  

We had fun turning Mr. McCarty into an ice cream sundae at our incentive activity today. He was such a good sport letting the students pour all sorts of sticky ice cream toppings on top of his head! All the students who participated had the opportunity to pour toppings on him and the students who read over 1,000 minutes got to squirt the whipped cream. The two students who read over 2,000 minutes got to add the cherry on top!  A good time was had by all who participated.

 

 

Congratulations to Mrs. Dewey's fourth grade class for having the highest amount of student participation! They are going to be having an ice cream party this afternoon. 

It was a great activity and it is our hope that the students continue to read even after the challenge.

Keep it up, Aviators!  You're awesome!!!

Here's a little slideshow of some of our awesome students who participated in our reading challenge:

 

 

 

  

  HOPE Week

      This week our HOPE Squad is putting on HOPE Week. See the following list for the daily activities:

Monday: This week each class will be decorating their door. On Thursday, the class with the most hopeful door will earn a prize. Make sure to save your wristband to be entered into a raffle for a prize at the end of the week. Sign the pledge banner at lunch to stop youth suicide.

Tuesday: Wear yellow, the color of hope, and have a sunny day while being a lifesaver to someone in need. The one who wears the most yellow will get a special prize and the class with the most yellow will get a donut party. Come to the table at lunch and if you still are wearing your wristband you will get a lifesaver.

Wednesday: Be a hero for someone who needs a friend. Be a hero and make someone’s day. Be a hero, there are villains around. A bully is a villain. Be a hero for someone that needs a friend and save them from a bitter end.

Thursday: Mix it up at lunch and sit with someone new! Make a new friend and you’ll make their day! It doesn’t matter who as long as you do, you’ll look so cool. Today we will also be judging everyone’s doors to see whose is the most hopeful the door that is most hopeful will win the whole class a prize.


Friday: Today is pajama day. This is to remind you to not sleep through your chance to help a friend in need. Also remember today to turn in your wristband to be entered into a raffle for a prize.

Thank you to our HOPE Squad for all your hard work!

*photo courtesy for the Daily Herald

     Congratulations to Mrs. Drumm for receiving the

Utah Valley Educator of the Week award!

      We are so fortunate to have amazing teachers here at Amelia Earhart Elementary and it's great that our community recognizes that also. Mrs. Drumm is an exceptional teacher that sets high expectations for her students and does all she can to help them reach their full potential. Her students benefit from her teaching methods and her great love for them. She was chosen out of all the educators in the Utah Valley to receive this well-deserved award. You can read all about it by clicking here.  Congratulations, Mrs. Drumm!!!!

Mrs. Rucker's Class Explains Why P.E. is Important

      Mrs. Rucker's 4th grade class worked together to write an opinion essay in preparation for their upcoming SAGE Writing Tests. They read two articles about P.E. and pulled information from these articles to form an opinion and write an essay about it. Here's what they wrote:

     Smack! Pow! There goes the dodgeball. You see kids running, sweating, jumping out of the way. What they know is that they are having fun, but what they don’t know is that they are getting great exercise. Kids need more P.E. time, because it keeps them healthy, it keeps them mentally focused, and helps them have improved relationships with those around them. We got our details from the articles, “More P.E. Please!” and “The Last Priority, P.E.”.

      First, P.E. keeps students healthy, because it is a way of keeping them active. We need more P.E. for this, but we also need to eat less calories, because they turn into fat if we don’t use them up. Health experts agree that everyday kids should have at least one hour of exercise. One third of the kids in the U.S. are overweight, because they eat too many calories and don’t burn them off such as in P.E. If we had more P.E. time, students could burn off those calories and we would all be healthier as a country.

     Second, P.E. during school helps kids to stay focused. P.E. helps kids be less wiggly. Sometimes it seems that kids have ants in their pants. Exercise in P.E. also increases blood flow to the brain and delivers more oxygen.Plus, when you walk or run, this can help your memory and reasoning.

     Last, P.E. helps kids to improve their relationships with others around them. Students can bring home ideas of what they do in P.E. and play the same thing at home, or talk about it, at home with their families. Being healthy at home is also important, not just at school. P.E. increases chemicals that help attitudes of students to stay positive. In P.E. students work in groups and learn to be friendly and happy.

      More P.E. would help kids be healthier, more focused in class, and would help them to have better relationships. When the whistle blows, it is time to stop and it’s time to go focus on our other classes that we have.

     Wow! Great job, Mrs. Rucker's class!!!! You will do great on your tests!

Provo High School's JROTC Visits 6th Graders

     Thank you to the Provo High School JROTC APT (Awareness Presentation Team) for coming to talk with our 6th graders today during SLC. They gave presentations on important topics (Bullying, Staying in School, Drugs, and Hygiene). They also had a Q & A period where they talked about their experiences and benefits of their program. It was a wonderful presentation and our students really enjoyed it.

Thank you for coming!

 

6th Graders See the "Mummies of the World" 

       Last month, the sixth graders had the opportunity to travel to Salt Lake City to visit the "Mummies of the World" exhibition at the Leonardo Museum. In preparation for this field trip they had been learning about the Mayan and Egyptian mummies. Each student wrote a research paper on them and it was a great opportunity for them to see them up close.

Here's what some of the students from Mr. Hoehne's class had to say about it:

"The field trip was awesome. We learned so many cool things. We learned that there are two types of mummies, Natural preserved mummies and Man preserved mummies. Also all the Peruvian mummies were curled up unlike all the other mummies." - Brieanna L.

"On the field trip I learned that the mummies came from all over. The mummies were old and young." - Ben E.

"The field trip was awesome. There were so many mummies and there were dead cats  and many other things that were cool. Another thing is that right after we saw the mummies we got to see so many optical illusions. It was fun!" - Evette V.

"I loved the museum it was so awesome to learn about things I never knew. The experience was life changing and fun." - Jaden C.

"It was really fun to go to the museum. I learned a lot at the Leonardo." - Shado L.

"What I would say about the exhibit is that everyone should have a chance to go." - Mackenzie W.

"For our field trip we went and saw all the mummies. It was really fun. After that we were able to go upstairs and play around with the different things up there. Our field trip was fun." - Lizzy P.

"We went on a field trip to the Leonardo Mummy Exhibit. At first it was scary and gross but then it was super cool." - Lataya B.

"The field trip was very amazing and fun!!! I learned a lot and it was a very entertaining experience." - Alyssa T. 

"Our field trip was very interesting and fun. I learned and saw a lot of cool  things." - Alan F.

"There were really sad dead Peruvian children and Egyptian mummies. There also were optical illusions." - Jonathan R.

"Thank you for our field trip. We appreciate it very much." - Matthew C.

 

What a great field trip! This will be one they will never forget!

Thank you to our awesome 6th grade team for organizing this great field trip and to the many parent volunteers who also helped! 

Mrs. Gunn Receives the Golden Apple Award

Congratulations to Mrs. Gunn for receiving the PTA Golden Apple Award for this year!  

     We all love Mrs. Gunn and she is so deserving of this award! Not only is she an amazing teacher that gives our Kindergarteners such a strong, positive start in school, but she is also one of the most loving and compassionate people you will ever meet.

     She received nominations from current students as well as parents and former students. She has made such a positive impact in the lives of her students and continues to do so. A former student, Hailee, wrote:

"I think that Mrs. Gunn should get the Golden Apple Award. Mrs. Gunn is so sweet and loving to all of her students. Never once in my entire 12 years have I heard her get really mad at anyone. When you have a stomach ache or any other pain, Mrs. Gunn will let you get a drink and give you a cracker or two. I love Mrs. Gunn for many reasons, so much that I will occasionally visit her. She always greets me with a hug and a warm smile. In the halls she always waves to me. Do I have to mention that she is still looking very good? I'm pretty sure that it is that smile of hers. To conclude, Mrs. Gunn has worked very hard to earn this award."

Congratulations, Mrs. Gunn!  You are one-of-a-kind!!!

It was a day of celebrating the amazing Dr. Seuss today at Amelia Earhart.

Our AWESOME lunch ladies went all-out to make a fun lunch for our students. They always go the extra mile and we just love them so much! Today they made fruit "Cat in the Hat" hats and "Lorax" sandwiches.  Needless to say, the students LOVED it!

And, say! Mrs. Gunn's kindergarten class likes green eggs and ham! They do! They like them Sam-I-Am!

Even the teachers and staff got to have a Dr. Seuss treat today! There was fruit from the "Tuffula" trees, "Green Eggs and Ham", "One Fish, Two Fish, Blue Fish" crackers, and cute "Cat in the Hat" cheese! 

  March Madness

 

Mrs. Hirz and Miss Herring's classes are holding their very own March Madness this month. Miss Herring explained this fun activity for their classes. She said, "We run two brackets with the same books, reading each one to determine a winner for Best Pictures and Best Story of 2016. This year, we're letting the kids predict who will win the bracket.  In the end, we have a showdown between the book for Best Story and the book for Best Pictures and have the kids vote on a Best Book overall. It's always A LOT of fun, and the kids really like it. Winners will be announced near Spring Break."

What an awesome activity!  We can't wait to find out the winners!

Fourth Graders Learn an American Indian Art

As a part of fourth grade Social Studies, our fourth graders learn all about the American Indian tribes that are native to Utah. It is a tradition here at Amelia Earhart that every year they have the opportunity to learn to make American Indian clay coil pots. Students shape the clay and then apply colored glazes. The pots are then baked in a kiln. When they are done, they are beautiful, bright, shiny pots! This is a fun activity our students enjoy but also learn from. 

Thank you to Mrs. Dewey's class for sharing their pictures with us. It is interesting to see the pots inside the kiln and then after they have been baked. The glazed pots start out with muted colors then the colors turn vibrant and glossy when done! What a fun opportunity for our students to have a keepsake that will remind them of their American Indian Social Studies unit!

 

Aviators Shine at District S.T.E.M. Fair

 During Tier 2 Language Arts, some of our sixth graders have the opportunity to be reporters for the Aviator News. They decide what to report on, conduct interviews if needed, take pictures when needed, and write and edit their stories. Under the direction of their awesome editors, Mrs. Swain and Mrs. Knudsen, students research and write news stories about past assemblies and activities, school programs, upcoming events or holidays, student or staff spotlights, and they usually include a fun puzzle or funny jokes.  The most current staff is getting ready to print the 3rd issue this year. Once printed, the staff will distribute them to all students. They do a great job and the students love getting news written by their peers. One student told me that her older brother, a former Amelia Earhart student, loves to read the Aviator News. He said that it's fun to see what's going on at the school. That's pretty cool!

Thanks to all the Aviator News staffs for your hard work!  

The current staff...

And they also wanted to make sure we knew it wasn't all hard work. They have fun doing it too!

Well done, sixth graders! We look forward to future issues!

Throwback Thursday @ Amelia Earhart 

 

   

It's that time again...Throwback Thursday @ Amelia Earhart. Can you guess who this cute little girl with the beautiful, big smile might be? I'm going to give a little clue because she is new to our school this year and some parents might not know her yet: she teaches all our students, but only once a week. Ok, that's all the clues for now!  Go to our Facebook page and make your guesses on who you think she is. (Remember, only parents can leave comments on Facebook so students, if you want to guess, make sure one of your parents or adult family members goes to Facebook and leaves a comment.)                   Thanks for playing! #AETBT

 

*** CONGRATULATIONS to Maite Velez and Amy Schofield for guessing this week's Throwback Thursday @ Amelia Earhart! It was our awesome art teacher, Kim Peterson!!! ***

Keyboarding Practice Sites at Home 

 

   

Did you know that students as young as 3rd grade are required to type multiple paragraphs in testing throughout the year? Keyboarding is an important skill that students are learning at an earlier age than ever before. Students get some practice during school, but it would be helpful for students to practice at home if possible. There are some great sites available online that can be accessed at home free of charge. Go to the "AE Links" section of our school webpage, scroll down and click the "Keyboarding Links" icon. There are practice sites and game sites students may use for keyboarding practice. Some favorites are Dance Mat Typing and Learn to Type. (Don't forget to keep hands in their proper keyboarding position when practicing!)

Anti-bullying Video by the Kindness Club 

 

 

 


Our Kindness Club has produced a new video titled "How to Stop Bullying at Amelia Earhart". It is a great video that shares ways to identify bullying and what to do if you or someone you know is being bullied. Thank you to the Kindness Club and to Mr. Miller for helping our students know what to do if problems arise. This video will also be available under the Teacher Resources and Student Resources on the side bar at the left. 

Well done, Kindness Club!  Thank you for your hard work!

Help Us Improve Our School!!! 

 

To help improve our schools, Provo City School District is asking for input about parent, student and employee experiences in each of the district’s schools. Parents can either fill out the student survey with their child in mind or help the student complete it on their own. If you have multiple students in one school, please complete a separate survey for each student. While the surveys are voluntary and anonymous, your participation is greatly appreciated.

Follow this link to a short survey.

2015-2016 S.T.E.M. Fair

 

The Amelia Earhart Elementary gym was filled with some pretty amazing projects today for our S.T.E.M. Fair!

There were projects by some of our 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. There were projects that explained how fruit can be used to make power, projects about the science of baking, projects about why people can't see optical illusions, projects that compared water and fertilizer in growing plants, and so many other awesome projects. Students worked hard on these projects and it really showed. They were by their projects and eager to share them with anyone that wanted to learn more. It was very impressive to hear how much they knew about their subjects. They really know their stuff!

Well done, Aviators!

Surprise Thank You Party!

Mrs. Drumm's 5th grade class recognizes what a great teacher they have. They wanted to do something to show their appreciation for her so they planned a surprise "Thank You" party for her! They arranged for her to be called down to the office and Principal McCarty came to supervise as they set up for the surprise all on their own. (Smart kids! They thought of everything!) Needless-to-say Mrs. Drumm was surprised! 

What a great thing to do for one of our awesome teachers! 

Mrs. Drumm has said, " I am lucky to spend my days with them." It's clear that her students feel the same way about her!
