A Good Story


The third grade students at Santaquin had the privelage of listening to "Uncle John" tell stories (he prefers to call them experiences) about his friend Jack the rabbit and his wife Jackie.  Listening to stories is always a pleasure and encourages us to use our imagination. Thank you Uncle John.

How I Became a Pirate

Shawnee McMullin

Santaquin first grade went of a field trip to see a play based on the book “How I Became a Pirate” at the Scera Center in Orem. Students wore their best dress to visit the theater. We enjoyed the play and even got to ask the actors questions after the show! To finish the day we had lunch at the park. 



Hey Look!

Look who showed up at Santaquin Elementary! It's Johnny Appleseed himself.

Teachers Learning


Several teachers from Santaquin went to a technology conference.  Teachers are always striving to stay current in their practice and hope to use technology to engage students in learning.
