Pretty, amazing, scary, gross, and creative sums up the costumes at Santaquin Elementary today. Every year the teachers and children's costumes are amazing. We had a great turn out for the parade. Thanks for all the support.

Today was a great way to end our Red Ribbon week. Thanks for all the spare change donations, and supporting your kids as they dressed up every day this week!

The 2015-16 Reflections theme was "Let Your Imagination Fly".  Many students participated, letting their imaginations fly as they took pictures, wrote stories, drew pictures, and more.  Thanks to the students who participated, and a HUGE thank you to the PTA for all their time in making this event happen.

Red Ribbon Week Begins

The students and faculty all came to school Monday morning dressed in red to support Red Ribbon week which means we want to be drug free.  We all received a smartie and a bookmark that reads, "Too Smart to Start!"

We also had an amazing assembly.  The Rocky Mountain Magician, Theron Milo, came with his assistant, Kate, and entertained us with some amazing magic tricks.  He taught us a saying, "The best me is drug free."

Kindergarten Visits Fire Station

Submitted by susan.hunter on Thu, 10/22/2015 - 14:08

Kindergarten students colored pictures to express their thanks to the Firefighters, EMT, and Police for their services.  In turn some of those people took time to show the kids what it is like to wear a firefighter's uniform, or to hold the water hose.  Mr. Argyle, our principal and a volunteer firefighter, showed the kids what tools are stored on a fire truck.  There was also a police officer there to explain the importance of 9-1-1 and other safety procedures.  The kids also got to see inside an ambulance and some of the equipment they use to help people.
