Erosion

What is erosion?  The kindergarten students learned about the effects of erosion as they went outside to view a man-made mountain.  They watched as different elements destroyed the mountain.

Teacher Appreciation Week

This week we are celebrating our awesome faculty.

  • They do an amazing job teaching the students at Santaquin Elementary.
  • They even show their school spirit by dressing up during Red Ribbon week and Dr. Seuss week.
  • At the "It Pays to Read" assemblies, they do their best to make baskets for the students so they can earn as much cash as possible.
  • On occasion you might even catch them playing soccer, shooting hoops, or jumping rope during recess.

Thank you Santaquin faculty for all the time and effort you put in to making this a fun place to be and for encouraging students to do and be their best.  Thank you PTA for all your hard work and the cute doors that were decorated this week.

Community Awareness

The 2nd grade students went on a tour of Santaquin City to become more aware of the way the community works together.

They visited the City offices where they toured the Senior Center, visited with employees from the water department and other departments, and played games at the Parks and Recreation Department.

Their adventure continued to Santaquin Library.  They learned how many books are in the library and other function of a library. Santaquin Library was the first library in the state to loan kindles.

They toured the Musuem including the old-time display shops located on the upper floor.  There was a candy shop, barber shop, and jail.  As the students passed by the jail, they thought they saw Mr. Goudy.  Could it be?
