Big Budah is ‘Lunch Lady for a Day’ at Hayden Peak Elementary

DSCN0007They were serving up lots of laughs as Fox 13’s Big Budah put on a hair net and apron and tried his hand as a lunch lady for a day at Hayden Peak Elementary. Budah learned quickly from lunch manager Sharon Barlow that the proper term for a lunch lady these days is “Advocate for Child Nutrition.” Then he was put to work helping to make lunch, along with homemade fry sauce, but Budah ended up in a time-out for sneaking food and eating on the job. The morning ended with Big Budah serving some students breakfast and leaving the school knowing it is easier to keep his job as a TV funnyman than trying to make it as a beloved lunch lady. Thanks to everyone at Hayden Peak for pitching in to make the morning a success. Enjoy a photo gallery on our Facebook page.

Bluffdale Students Receive High Marks for Simulated Congressional Hearing

IMG_0479It was an opportunity for Bluffdale students to demonstrate their understanding of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights and they did just that. In the final activity for “We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution,” students participated in a simulated congressional hearing, giving individual speeches about different aspects of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. There were different groups competing like Team Adams, Madison, Washington, Franklin and Jefferson. After the speeches, judges had six minutes to ask the team members questions. This is something students worked very hard on and we couldn’t be more proud of their performances and depth of knowledge. Thanks to the judges, Bluffdale Mayor Derk Timothy, Administrator of Schools Michael Anderson, and Principal Karen Egan who helped to make the simulated hearing a success.

Joel P. Jensen Student Gives Back By Building Buddy Benches

IMG_0808Josh Burge is in the eighth grade at Joel P. Jensen Middle School, but he hasn’t forgotten the time he spent at Westvale Elementary. That’s why Josh decided to give back by building Buddy Benches for his former elementary. As part of his Eagle Project, Josh collected donations for supplies and organized the building of the benches last summer. When three of the beautiful benches were finished, he brought them to Westvale and presented them to students and staff during an assembly. Thanks Josh, for helping to foster friendships and send an anti-bullying message with Buddy Benches at our schools. Check out more photos on our Facebook page.
