Mrs. Sumens First Grade class is building their 'Listening to Reading' stamina by using QR codes on their books to pull up the audio for their read aloud books on their chromebooks. These first graders are becoming experts at integrating technology into their learning!

Third grade had the best time on their first field trip of the year at Rowley's Red Barn! They got to be pulled by the tractors, pick their own apples, eat a delicious apple cider donut, and learn all about the orchards! It was a fun-filled day!

We had a school-wide goal for each class to read a minimum of 3,000 minutes and our students CRUSHED that goal!

The office staff’s hair color was on the line and they all showed up with colorful hair to reward the kiddos for the amazing job they did. The kids were SO EXCITED to see their hard work pay off!

Santaquin students learned all about how to stay safe on the internet by following these rules:

1. Tell a trusted adult if anything on your screen makes you feel sad, scared or confused.

2. Ask a trusted adult before sharing private information. (Full name, address, phone number, etc)

3. Never meet face to face with someone you chatted with on the internet. 

4. Have balanced between online and offline activities. 

5. Be kind online. Treat others online with respect and kindness. 

The NetSmart assembly is always a favorite and we’re so glad to have them come and teach us these important lessons to keep us safe!

Science Eyes

Submitted by misty.rindlisbacher on Sat, 09/10/2022 - 15:07
1st graders with science glasses on

Mrs. Sumens' first graders have been learning about scientists. Today they asked the important question, "How do scientists know so much?" They learned that scientists observe closely and ask lots of questions. They read, "The Looking Book" and put on their own pair of "lookers" to make close observations around the classroom. These first graders are great observers and full of curiosity. They are going to make super scientists!

Mrs. Despain poses with Mrs. Provstgaard's 2nd graders to show off their ties and their silliest faces.

The month of September is Making Good Choices Month here at Santaquin Elementary!  Mrs. Despain has organized some really great lessons and really fun activities to help our students focus on making good choices in every aspect of their lives.  This week, our focus is "Making Good Choices “Ties” Our Families Together!” with some activities the students can do at home to help unite our families.  The kids all have the opportunity to design a neck tie in art class with Mrs. Ringger and yesterday, Mrs. Provstgaard's class got to show off their amazing ties with Mrs. Despain.  Ask your students about the "Making Good Choices" handout they were given.  It's going to be an amazing month!
