Hobble Creek Elementary had its annual Spelling Bee Contest on January 26th, 2011. There were a total of 28 students from 4th, 5th, and 6th grade that participated in the event. The first place winner was Samantha Smith, a 4th grader in Mrs. Bartholomew’s class. The second place winner was Alanna Hess, a 5th grader from Miss Huyett’s class. We would like to commend our students for all their hard work. The Spelling Bee Contest has proved how smart the students are a Hobble Creek Elementary!

  What is the "Love Your School" fundraising event?  This free community talent show is hosted by the students, staff, and parents of Hobble Creek Elementary School, who recognized a need and wanted to help.  Funds from this event will go directly to the purchase of projector systems for our classrooms.                                                                                                                                  
  Cash donations are a welcome contribution towards our effort, as are purchases from our wonderfully supportive vendors - who are giving 100% of their profits over to Hobble Creek Elementary.  Vendors during the event include: Shaybee's gourmet gifts, Usbourne Books, Basa Body beauty products, Homemade card & Gifts by Dianne, Balloon Animals, Glittery Hair-Styles  and make-up by Renaissance Hair Studio, and Utah Valley Nursery.  Items from Xage Medical Spa, Pinnacle Security, Vox Marketing, Anytime Fitness, Jumpin' Jacks, and Blickenstaff's Toy Store have been generously donated for purchase as well.                                                               
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  2.  INFORMATION FOR TALENT SHOW PERFORMERS                                                                                                                                            
We are thrilled with our line-up of performances for Hobble Creek Elementary's very first talent show!  Talent for our event has been chosen on a first come-first serve basis.  Parents will be contacted by e-mail/phone with the following information:                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                           When does my child perform?  Your child has been assigned a Wednesday or Thursday evening performance.  Each evening has a first act, a brief intermission and a second act.  The first act will begin at 5:30pm.  The second act will begin at 6:30.  Performing students should be sitting in the front row, in order of their performance time (see program), 15 minutes before the starting time of their performance.                                                                                                                                                                                                   What is the program for the evening? The talent acts are currently being organized to keep sibling performances in the same night and to provide variety over the course of the evening.  The final program will be announced here as we come closer to the event date.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  What do I need to do to get my child ready to perform? We are working with minimal equipment on a small, simple stage.  Please make sure you have informed Kris Aviano (kaviano [at] xmission [dot] com) of any staging needs you may have (microphones, etc).  If your child will need music played, please get a copy of that music, clearly labeled with your child's name and act, to the front office.                                                                                                                                                                                                    There is an open rehearsal for any students wishing to run through their performance on stage on Thursday, February 4th at 4pm.  This is an optional rehearsal.  A parent or adult chaperon will need to be in attendance with their performer.                                                                                                                                                                                               3.  PARTICIPATING BUSINESSES

Miss Hughes is a talented dancer who teaches movement at Hobble Creek Elementary. She
works along side the classroom teachers to reinforce learning from all areas of the curriculum through movement. Students understand core subjects better and attendance increases as a result . “A powerful educational truth is that children who have exposure to the arts as part of their curriculum outperform their counterparts on an academic level by 18 to 27 percent on standardized testing. What’s more, these “arts-rich” students show increased levels of creativity, confidence and self-esteem, which may prove to be the most valuable long-term assets of their educations.” www.artworkforkids.org/get-inspired/statistics

The Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program provides the funds to have Miss Hughes in our school. Without your help, our school is in danger of losing Miss Hughes due to budget cuts by the Utah Legislature. Please allow your voice to be heard about the importance of saving this extraordinary educational program for the benefit of our schools and our children.

This holiday season we have a goal of contributing 1,000 hours of service!  Each grade level has adopted a project, and students are also encouraged to complete service outside of school and report their hours.  As of December 17, we completed over 1,800 hours!  Congratulations, Hobble Creek Hawks!
