A big thank you to all the 3rd - 6th grade students who took a lot of time and effort to prepare and sing in the Hobble Creek Choir this year. There were many early morning practices and hard work learning very difficult arrangements. A big thank you goes to Mrs. Thuedon who is so willing and generous with her time and talents to teach these students to sing.
Due to the weather, we had to change 5th and 6th grades track meet days.
6th is rescheduled for May 16th, Tuesday.
5th is rescheduled for May 17th, Wednesday.
4th is hopefully staying with May 2nd, Tuesday.
3rd is hopefully staying with May 3rd, Wednesday.
If the weather is not good on any of these days, we will not have any track meets.

Mrs. Maxine Bartholomew is retiring at the end of the school year next month. She is one of the veterans at Hobble Creek and she will be missed! This is what she said about her long career as a teacher. "I have worked in Nebo School District for 32 years. I started my teaching career at Park Elementary in Spanish Fork. I taught fourth grade there for 18 years. I then transferred to Hobble Creek Elementary in 2003, the year it opened, and I have been teaching fourth grade here since. I did my student teaching in kindergarten and first grade, but I was then hired to teach fourth grade.
It's that time again to show you the Hobble Creek students of the week for April 21, 2017. They are Hailey Fry, Isabella Rex, Hudson McCulloch, Lucy Carter, Natalie Degn, Thatcher Lee, Tom Lloyd, Lea Cardon, Jonas McCown, Roman Nicol, Ellie Metler, Kayla White, Ethan McCulloch, Porter Redd, Sydnie Hawkes, Ethan Christiansen, Porter Nadauld, Denton Marks, and Paige Casper.
If you see these great students make sure you recognize them for being outstanding this week!
K12 Student Innovator of the Year is an innovation competition for students in grades 4 - 12. All you have to do to compete is invent a novel (but useful) product, system, or service, and come ready to pitch it to a panel of judges (think of this like a Shark Tank experience). There are 3 categories: elementary (grades 4 - 6), junior high (grades 7 - 9), and high school (grades 10 - 12). Over $6000 in cash prizes was awarded. Two of our 4th grade students, Emma Snapp and Ashley Hardy participated. They created the Hypno Changer. We are so proud of their effort and hard work.
Here are the student "Hawks" who made student of the week for April 14, 2017. Wesley Broughton, Mya Gilbert, Beckett Mickelson, Nathan Marshall, Ella Scott, Brinley Cherrington, Alijah Marks, Logan Radford, Audrey Richards, Peter Hagen, Barbara Torro, Caleb Tuckett, Rebekah Jensen, Lily Lee, Carter Griffin, Weston LeBaron, and Brody Colton.
We appreciate your hard work in school and kindness to others. Great job Hawks!
