SUMMER READING SUCCESS

At the end of the 2012-2013 school year, the 1st grade children were given a challenge to read through the summer.  A goal was set for them to stay at the same reading level or to improve.  As summer came to a close and they headed back to school as 2nd graders, they awaited their reading results.

In October an assembly was held to recognize all those who had turned in their reading slips through the summer.  Then trophies were given to those who stayed at the same reading level or improved.

The children's names were also entered into a drawing where they received a basket full of goodies or a blanket made by the 1st grade teachers.

During recess Mr.Ekker got several first graders to pose for a picture with seed pods from a sugar maple tree.  They placed them on their faces as mustaches.

Each student at Santaquin Elementary worked very hard this year on their reading for our final 'It Pays to Read' Assembly.  Everyone participated in our 'Minute to Win It' for the celebration.  Students were given one minute to shoot baskets, jump rope, hula hoop, knock down bowling pins, score a hockey goal, etc.  Lucky winners won cash for every station they completed within the minute time frame!  Tons of students won books and prizes, some with $ money $ inside.  Two grand prize winners left with their very own BIKE!  It definitely paid to READ this year at Santaquin!

Once again, the PTA came through with a great carnival for the students and their families.  It was a bit windy and cloudy, so most of the fun was in the gym.  The bounce toys outside were a hit.  But the big winner of the day was the dunk tank.  Thanks to the brave teachers and staff who took the plunge!!

Students from Santaquin 6th grade were able to travel "to new frontiers" as part of their space center experience on Thursday, April 25.

The new Discovery Space Center had a blow up dome planetarium for the students to do some star-gazing without having to stay up all night.

A lesson was given to the students on light, sound, and outer space.

The highlight of the experience was the chance to have a "simulated" flight experience and learn the value of team work.  

Because of a few glitches on the field trip for one of the groups, the entire 6th grade has been invited to bring their entire family to a Monday Night star show at the Discovery Space Center in Pleasant Grove FREE of charge!  Tell the director you are with the Santaquin Elementary group.  Information is available at:
