5th Grade Readers' Theater in Santaquin

The 5th grade teachers at Santaquin Elementary, joined by members of the Adminsitrative Team, treated the fifth grade students to an original portrayal of the classic 'Little Red Riding Hood' in their literary introduction to Readers' Theater.  The students cheered wildly as the Wolf, played by Mr. Kern, 'dismissed' the grandmother, portrayed by our very own Principal Argyle (in full costume).  To everyone's great relief, the reading concluded with a rousing game of baseball!  Thank you, Fifth Grade Teachers, for making literature come alive for our students!

The students at Santaquin Elementary read over 90,000 days this year!! At the beginning of the year Mr. Argyle committed to run one foot for every day they read. Although 18 miles would have met his commitment, Mr. Argyle ran an additional 8.2 miles to show the students that they can always ‘go the extra mile’ by reading one more book or five more minutes. Congratulations to all the students and to Mr. Argyle!!!
