Amanda Flake is the current music specialist, and next year she will teach 1st grade. She said, “I love all types of music, so it made me happy to teach music every day, but my favorite part of my job was getting to know every student in the school. I will really miss being the music specialist, but I am excited to teach 1st grade because I love the magic that comes with teaching young children. My favorite part of teaching is thinking of ways to make things more fun and active. I think 1st grade will be a good fit for me.” Mrs.

Two teams from Hobble Creek Elementary participated in the State Debate Tournament on April 21, 2017 at Alta High School. Nicole Cragun and Anna Sneddon debated the affirmative case. Elizabeth Lowe and Max Smith debated the negative case. Both teams did really well, Max and Elizabeth won 1st Place at state!
We would like to extend a special thank you to Rachel Peay for organizing and teaching debate as a dedicated parent volunteer this year. We so appreciate all the efforts of our parent volunteers here at Hobble Creek and the difference they make in our students lives.
Today we are spot lighting our Hobble Creek 6th grade team. Every student at Hobble Creek looks forward to their 6th grade year and the teacher they will get. Since all the teachers are equally fantastic it is never a dissappointment and all 6th graders enjoy being king of the hill so to speak! This being said, we are so sad to say good bye to Mrs. Snow, Mrs. Nissen and Mrs. Smith. Each are being taken in different directions next year and they will be missed. Mrs. Corfield will be staying! Yay!! Here are some interesting fact on all of them.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, we have some great students of the week today! They are Eva Peterson, Elyse Goates, Ty Neves, Audrey Carlson, Carson Magleby, Zoey Trahan, Ian Smith, Aliyah Marks, Emma Snapp, Riley Crickenberger, Sadi Johansen, Alex Bench, Brianne Walker, Braden Nuttall, Maddie Cronk, Carter Griffin, and McKae Jones.
We only have two Friday's left for students of the week. We hope everyone will continue to work hard and show Hobble Creek Pride! GO HAWKS
