Santaquin families enjoyed the kick-off activity for our Fall Book Fair with an early morning "Parents and Pastries".  Parents were invited by the PTA to "bring your children and some books and come enjoy milk and donuts while you read together!"  What a great way to start the day ... reading!

'Eye-Popping' Vision Screenings at Santaquin

In the United States millions of children in elementary schools have vision problems that go undetected and untreated.  If you can't see properly, how can you learn properly?  On Thursday, September 13th, Santaquin Elementary students participated in school-wide vision screenings.  Vision was checked to make sure everyone can see the important learning taking place in each classroom.  Thank you to our wonderful school nurses and parent helpers for making the day a success!
