Our very own secretary Susan Hunter recieved the Nebo Peak Award. She was nominated by 5th Grade Teacher Hannah Camit. 

“Susan is a positive role model. She makes all teachers, staff, and parents that she works with feel appreciated and important. Susan keeps the school running and makes each child feel important. She is welcoming and positive to everyone in the community that visits the school.”

We could not agree more. We love Susan and everything she does to support all of Santaquin Staff and Students.

Jamie Call

The students in Miss Call's class made math posters representing three different subtraction strategies. Then they categorized the different strategies, finding similarities and differences. AND they got to do it in their PJ’s! Everything’s better in PJ’s!
