Bike Winner!

Each student at Santaquin Elementary worked very hard this year on their reading for our final 'It Pays to Read' Assembly.  Everyone participated in our 'Minute to Win It' for the celebration.  Students were given one minute to shoot baskets, jump rope, hula hoop, knock down bowling pins, score a hockey goal, etc.  Lucky winners won cash for every station they completed within the minute time frame!  Tons of students won books and prizes, some with $ money $ inside.  Two grand prize winners left with their very own BIKE!  It definitely paid to READ this year at Santaquin!

Once again, the PTA came through with a great carnival for the students and their families.  It was a bit windy and cloudy, so most of the fun was in the gym.  The bounce toys outside were a hit.  But the big winner of the day was the dunk tank.  Thanks to the brave teachers and staff who took the plunge!!
