What? How does someone taste a book? Well, Mrs. Rindy taught us that books are quite tasty. We got to move around the table and sample different books to see which ones we might want to read. We filled out our menu so that we would have a record of those books for later.
Third grade is very lucky to receive dictionaries every year from the Rotary Club. This year Santaquin Pharmacy also helped in the donation. They spent time teaching us how to use a dictionary. We look forward to using them all year and in years to come. They reading their dictionaries for fun!

We loved having our veteran friends and relatives visit our school so that we could honor them. We also honored veterans who have passed away as well as those currently serving. We learned more about their service and the meaning of Veterans Day. We were able to sing "Thank You Military" to our honored guests and wave flags to show our appreciation. We made posters to decorate the halls and lined the sidewalks with American flags as part of our celebration. Some of them were able to stay after the assembly and go to individual classes to talk with them about their service.
One of our special veterans said that he felt very loved and that it may have been one of the best days of his life.

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.

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.
