U.S Synthetic workers volunteer at Hobble Creek Elementary

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Workers from U.S. Synthetic, a family oriented business in Orem, UT that makes long-lasting diamond inserts for applications in down-hole drilling tools, took time out of their busy schedule to volunteer at Hobble Creek Elementary on March 20, 2012. There was a total of 11 volunteers that worked with students in first through sixth grades reading, listening to debate arguments, tracing shadow profiles, revising stories for the Student Treasures publishing project, grading papers, assisting in the computer lab, and playing games in P.E.  They were very helpful.  As you walked the halls at Hobble Creek Elementary you could hear the laughing and talking between the students and volunteers.  At the end of the day the volunteers were having fun telling the stories of their experiences to each other as they met in the office before going home.  Hobble Creek Elementary would like to thank the volunteers from U.S. Synthetic for taking time out of their busy schedule to help the students at Hobble Creek Elementary have an enjoyable learning experience!

    Students at Hobble Creek Elementary have been learning  about mapping, their community, science and technology through the art of dance from the professional dancers of Repertory Dance Theatre.   

    Hobble Creek Elementary fourth and second grade students performed the dances that they created under the direction of Repertory Dance Theatre dancers Lynne Larson and Chara Huckins at a culminating event Friday March 9.  The dances went along with science and social studies core curriculum such as habitat, erosion and weathering.  The dances also celebrated the resources that are in the Hobble Creeka school boundaries which lie in Springville and Mapleton and extend up Hobble Creek Canyon. Third and Fourth grade students conducted a survey which they used to map the data collected.  The maps were displayed on Friday. Sixth grade students used the survey results to create a movie about the gardeners of the community.  This information may be used in creating a school community garden. Second grade students have been studying the systems that are involved in bring food from the farm to the garden.  They made posters about the transportation systems.  The posters were also displayed.

     Hobble Creek has an art project grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, formerly the Utah Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the arts.  The grant allows them to join into the Green Map Project which is an international effort to create perspective changing portraits of communities that act as practical guides for resident, tourists, decision makers and statisticians.  The Green Map System has spread to over 600 cities, towns and villages in 55 countries.  

      Repertory Dance Theatre is involved in the community providing  educational opportunities and striving  to increase an awareness of the art of modern dance.  The dance company has been involved in schools in the Salt Lake and Ogden area with the Green Map Project.  

         The information was used by the dancers and placed on student made maps and onto the online green map.  This is “place-based education which emphasizes creative exploration and the joyful realization of the ties that connect a person with nature and culture in their place.”(David Sobel)
