Say No To Drug Week

Attributions: 

We spent a week learning about the harmful effects of drugs to a persons body.  We had a magician come and entertain us.  We had Santaquin Police officers come and bring their K9 to teach us how they look for drugs.  We pledged to be drug free.   Mr. Richins and Mrs. Zaugg showed off their mad flossing skills.

SIxth Grade Science and Ice Cream

Attributions: 

Our sixth graders are learning about insulating.  This is a perfect opportunity for them to engineer a way to keep their ice cream cold for two hours.  Some students enjoyed a great ice cream sandwich and some, well... not so much.

Clark Planetarium Assembly

Clark Planetarium came to our school and taught us about satic electricity, air pressure, vacuum and how science works.  The students enjoyed learning and participating.  They each got the chance to hold a rock from space.  They were surprised at how heavy it was.

"Day of the Dead"

“Dia De Los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead” is a special holiday in which people choose to honor their dead loved ones by celebrating their lives. It is celebrated in Mexico and other countries of Latin America on November 1st and 2nd. On these days it is believed that our departed loved ones are able to come back and join the celebration. Dia De los Muertos is to celebrate the life that our loved ones lived, not to be sad that they are gone.  Throughout the day, 4th grade students learn about what this very special day means to a lot of people in their community.
