To celebrate Earth Day, 1st graders were taught the importance of cleaning the earth, recycling, the plant life cycle, and how plants and people help each other. They did art, made a book, planted a seed, and concluded with picking up garbage around Santaquin.
The "It Pays to Read" assembly was awesome this month. Students are chosen to pick prizes off the stage. Occasionally, students are drawn, and select people to shoot baskets to help them win a prize. Everyone who is selected wins a book. The student can pick anyone, including themself, to shoot baskets. There are five slots to fill. Usually the kids just pick teachers. This time, however; a couple of students picked their friends and also shot their own basket. The kids did awesome, reaching a new time for making the baskets.
