Thanks to all of the parents who have volunteered to help in the classroom and at home doing various projects.  Mister Rogers said, "All of us, at some time or other, need help.  Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world."  We couldn't do it without everyone's help.  THANK YOU!

The Kindergarten took a field trip to the Santaquin Fire Station.  They learned about fire safety and how the fire department relates to our community.

Mr. Argyle explained the purposes of the firefighters clothing and a few of them tried it on.

Thanks to all those who participated in this field trip.  It was a great success!

SUMMER READING SUCCESS

Submitted by susan.hunter on Thu, 10/03/2013 - 00:00

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.

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!
