Andrew Goudy, everyone’s favorite custodian, is retiring at the end of this school year. Santaquin Elementary School will forever miss the power of Mr. Goudy’s love for the teachers, staff, and students. The hallways will be a little forlorn without the calls of “Howdy, Mr. Goudy” chorusing from enthusiastic students. Mr. Goudy leaves behind a legacy of kindness, service, and friendship. At age 12, Andrew Goudy moved to Santaquin and has called it home ever since. His love for animals, especially horses, flourished during his youth. His first horse, Agnes, was the best horse around.
This last week the K-2 classes at Santaquin Elementary used dance and movement to help them review, learn, and remember information about the weather. As part of Nebo School District's GAINS (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools) program, Dance Specialist, Melanie Fillmore visited with these younger grades to model for teachers and provide for students a Dance Integrated learning experience.
