Mountain Man Visit to the 4th Grade

Submitted by tori.bennett on Fri, 04/30/2021 - 12:10

Scott Grizzly Sorensen (4th grader Zack Jensen’s grandpa) came to visit the 4th grade to show us pictures and animal skins and mountain men gear. He also told us stories of the trappers and mountain men that lived and came through Utah. The 4th graders loved to hear the Tall Tales and true stories. Listening to the animals calls and being able to feel the pelts was an awesome experience. He even made sure that our school library had his books! The kids were racing to check them out!!

“Holy Guacamole, our teachers are the best!”

Submitted by tori.bennett on Fri, 04/23/2021 - 11:56

Our PTA has spent a very busy week recognizing and celebrating our amazing teachers and staff at Hobble Creek.  We were so spoiled throughout the week and we are so grateful!

On Monday the teachers were treated to delicious fruit parfaits for breakfast. Tuesday was chips and salsa followed by a full lunch on Wednesday provided by La Casita and a delicious dessert from the PTA. During this special lunch, the PTA arranged for room parents to take the classes so teachers could enjoy a little longer lunch.  During that lunch, students put together a “taco full” of notes of appreciation for their teachers.  As if that wasn’t enough, Thursday we were treated to Tres Leches Cake and Friday the teachers and staff received a treat and gift cards donated by Sodalicious and Chick-fil-A.  What an amazing recognition for the teachers and staff at Hobble Creek! 

A huge thank you to our PTA for all their hard work.  Big thanks to the PTA Teacher Appreciation Committee: Jen Bird, Amber Leck, Meghan Sonnenberg, Samantha Duncan, Hailey Peterson, Emily Jensen, Laura van der Horst and Mary Fisher.

Thank you to the awesome community businesses that support Hobble Creek Elementary:  La Casita, Sodalicious and Chick-fil-A.

Thanks for an awesome Teacher Appreciation Week!

Today students participated in the Great Utah Shake Out by practicing an earthquake drill.  Teachers discussed the procedure of DUCK, COVER, and HOLD ON in their classrooms. After the morning announcements, students practiced the drill and stayed in posititon for one minute.  Our students did a great job staying calm and quietly following instructions. This was a great opportunity to make sure we are prepared.
