Reflections at Hobble Creek

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 11/16/2011 - 14:32

Reflections have been going on at Hobble Creek Elementary since the school started.  When Reflection time comes around each year the halls, classrooms and homes are buzzing with students discussing on what to do that year.  Reflections is an annual program that has been put on by the National PTA for 40 years.  It encourages students to display their artistic talents in different categories based on a national theme.  “Diversity means…” was the theme for this year.  Students can enter their talents into eight different categories (music, photography, visual arts, literature, dance, theatre, 3D and film and video).  The work turned in must be a student’s original work, so it gives them the opportunity to show off their talents.

All the entries go on display for students, parents, and the community to see and recognize the hard work and talents of each student.  The entries are judged made up of a committee that is not associated with the school.  This year the judging committee consisted of Arts Professors from BYU as well as Professional Artist from the community.  The judges give points to the entries in each categories based on the students’ interpretation of the theme, artistic merit/composition and creativity.  The entries with the highest scores are given awards.  This year there were 205 total entries for the judges to score.  It was a tough decision since Hobble Creek has so many talented students.  Reflections are a way for the students to express themselves and receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts.

Hobble Creek Elementary would like to thank all of the judges for their time and effort they put into scoring the entries, the community for participating and supporting the students and especially the students for all their hard work and sharing their talents with us.  Without the students and their talents, Reflections would not happen!

Halloween at Hobble Creek

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 15:30

On October 31, 2011 the halls were a scary site at Hobble Creek Elementary.  There were witches, goblins, monsters, pirates and much more rooming the halls.  The students and teachers had fun showing off their creative costumes to each other as well as the parents during the Halloween Parade.  The students and faculty marched down the halls and throughout the gym while parents and peers were watching the parade come by.  It was a great site.  But beware if you come to Hobble Creek, you might get nabbed by one of these creatures!

The Living Planet Aquarium with 4th Graders

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 10/24/2011 - 15:04

Hobble Creek Elementary 4th graders got a real treat on Tuesday, October 18.  The Living Planet Aquarium came and talked about different aspects of science.  Each 4th grade class was able to meet with the instructors individually.  The "Water Van", as we call it, comes each year with models of the water cycle and the uses of water.  These two models are awesome because they actually rain.  Water also moves through them to show how it creates electricity and waters our crops, to name just a few of the things that the models do.  The Aquarium also brings some of their living animals when they come to the school.  This year they brought a tiger salamander, garter snake and a toad.  This was a real learning experience for everyone in fourth grade!

4th Grade Dance Night

Submitted by sabrina.huyett on Fri, 05/20/2011 - 15:34

Wednesday night, May 18th, was the 4th Grade Dance Night.  Boys from the 4th grade came with their mother, grandmother, aunt or sister and danced with them for an hour.  Then the girls from the 4th grade came with their father, grandfather, uncle, or brother and danced with them for an hour.  They did line dances, square dances, and much more.  That night as well as for the past months, the students have been learning the dances from Heather Hughes so that they would be tied to the 4th grade Social Studies and Fine Arts Curriculum as well as the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program.
