Our students had the great opportunity to work with Dr. Cheung Chau, the Director of Orchestral Studies at Utah Valley University, Music Director of Sinfonietta Polonia in Poznań, Poland and Music Director of the Utah Valley Youth Symphony in Orem, Utah. Sharing his time, experience and talents was a wonderful way for our students to connect with professionals working at the highest levels of musical performance and studies. Thank you Dr. Chau!
Part of our daily routine in our classrooms is giving students the opportunity to practice their basic computational skills by working on their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. Mastering math facts is the necessary computational foundation needed to be successful in math. Our students get to practice these facts on a daily basis.
Our West Valley 1 school has a great opportunity to participate in “Comcast Cares Day” on Saturday, April 21st. They are inviting any of our American Prep students and families to participate in this exciting event. We have flyers at the front office that you can pick up and fill out to get registered for the event. The more of our families that participate, the better chance our other schools will have to participate in future events. Come help change one of our schools for the better.
Last month, our 6th grade students participated in a “Reading Challenge” from our curriculum department. Our P.E. Teacher Mr. Andersen, joined them for the challenge, reading all the books and discussing them with our students. Due to the popularity of the challenge, our curriculum department of Lori Stephenson and Pam Gibbons, have brought in some sports themed books for this new challenge that will start later this week. If anyone has some extra time and would like to help them prepare the books, please come in anytime during the day and check in with curriculum.
The recent time change makes our days start an hour earlier. Our school is basking in the different light that accompanies the time change. It was a beautiful sunrise this morning as we started our day. Also check out the banner on the fence and come support our schools this weekend with The Barnes and Noble Bookfair.
