Jones, Carrie

Mrs. Jones’ class is THE place to “bee”!

Mrs. Jones has a Master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology. Her favorite subject to teach is Science.  She has taught fourth grade since 2000, moving from Maine to Provo in the summer of 2017.  She started teaching at Provost Elementary that year. In her free time she likes to sing, play the piano, write and arrange music, knit, and paint realistic art dolls.  She has four grown children and one adorable grandson.

You will need the following supplies for fourth grade.  Make sure you have your name on them before the first day of school.  It’s a good idea to buy extras, if you can.

  •  scissors
  •  one-subject spiral notebook
  •  a folder to keep your papers in at school
  •  a box of crayons
  •  a box of 24 pencils (Just get the plain yellow kind, as we will share pencils with everyone.  Pre-sharpened pencils are always appreciated.)
  •  a pack of THIN markers

Did you know…

  • Utah’s nickname is The Beehive State.
  • The state emblem is the beehive.
  • The state insect is the honeybee.
  • The state star cluster is the beehive cluster.
  • Many of our state symbols were thought up by kids about your age.
  • The rest of our state symbols remind us of the history of the early settlers.  The early pioneers were as “busy as a bee” creating beautiful buildings with the stone from canyon quarries, irrigating the desert, and growing a wide variety of crops.  This year you will learn all about Utah’s geography, history, and natural environment in fourth grade.
