4th Grade Utah Program

utah

We are having a Utah Program at Quest (Q1) Academy, Tuesday April 30 at 6:00PM. All of the 4th grade students will be singing different Utah songs for you. Please have them wear Best dress (what you would wear to a wedding or church) or school uniform please. Please have your student come to my class no later than 550pm so we can start the program as a class. Along with singing, a few students from our room will have speaking parts. These parts can be memorized. We are excited to entertain you all! Invite everyone you know to come-no limit! 

All of the 4th grade kids have created something to show you about our beautiful state. To see what they have created, you may come before the program from 5:00-5:30pm , or after the performance at about 7:00. Our class display will be in our classrooms.

Utah History Program

utah

We are having a Utah Program at Quest (Q1) Academy. All of the 4th grade students will be singing different Utah songs for you. Best dress (what you would wear to a wedding or church) or school uniform please. Along with singing, 9 students from our room will have speaking parts. They have been notified and need permission sent back. These parts need to be memorized. If your child does not have a speaking part, they are still a vital part of our program and their attendance is crucial to the success of our program.

We are excited to entertain you all! Invite everyone you know to come-no limit! All of the 4th grade kids have created something to show you about our beautiful state. They will be displayed afterwards to see. 

BFG PROJECTS

The BFG is a Big Friendly Giant that wants to live among the “human beans.” Our task is to create a practical item that the BFG could use in our world. However, our regular size item will not be big enough.

BFG Project Requirements:

The item your child chooses to make for the BFG must be 4 times the size of a regular “human bean” item. Examples might include a toothbrush, books, car keys, socks, candy bar, etc. (We will go over the math needed to figure out how to enlarge an everyday item.)

The item must be practical. We need to be able to carry the item to and from school easily 😉

Have fun with this project as it is something for them to enjoy using their imagination and creativity for the hard work they have put in all year! Thank you for all you do and your continued support this year!
