Life In The Ocean

Laura Snelgrove

Third Grade students in Mrs. Snelgrove’s class researched ocean animals and learned how living things need non-living things to survive. This integrated technology unit allowed the students to learn how to research online using Chromebooks in the classroom. Then the students used Adobe Spark to create narrated movies about their animals. Finally, the students created four giant ocean scenes using the life-size animals they made. Special thanks to Mr. Hanosek, district technology specialist.  Thank you also to Mrs. McKenna and Mr.

Mr. Simister is an Engineer


Third grade is learning about engineering. We have made toothpick towers, spagetti towers and pendulums.  We were lucky enough to have a parent of a third grader come and tell us what he does at work as a process engineer.  It was great to learn how our education could impact our future. The future looks bright with these students learning to think like an engineer. Thank you Mr. Simister!!

Discovery Gateway Visits 5th Grade

Hannah Camit

Each year Discovery Gateway comes to do an assembly with the 5th grade. They conduct physical and chemical changes experiments for the students to review our science core. After the hour assembly, the students have the opportunity to attend a lab session where they get to show what they learned by conducting their own experiments. It is a great assembly each year.

Read Across America Day


Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2nd.  Many schools across America spend time reading to celebrate his birthday.  Santaquin Elementary had a school wide read-a-thon at the end of the day. One of his most popular books is, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish."  The school provided Swedish Fish and Goldfish crackers.
