For the past couple of months students at Taylor Elementary have been learning about ancient civilizations and as of late students have been actively learning about ancient Rome and Greece. The original Ancient Olympic Games were a series of athletic competitions held between various city-states of Ancient Greece every four years. They began in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece, and were celebrated until 393 AD.

Students in Mr. Hansen’s and Mr. Richin’s 5th grade classes have had the unique opportunity to participate in Nebo School Districts Art Integration Program. Holly Mayne has been working with students in the area of dance and creative movement. After students have used their body to ooze, melt and gather items for a potion, they take all of their descriptive words back to their classroom for a writing activity. Be sure and ask a 5th grader about this special activity they have been involved in.

Thank you to Brad and Chris Olson of Olson’s Garden Shoppe. They donated a pumpkin to each student in Mrs. Oakeson’s and Mrs. Ellsworth’s class. It was a special treat for Halle and Kyler Tischner to have Grandma and Grandpa share their talents of growing veggies with their class.
