An audience full of respect and appreciation met the Veterans of our community as they entered our school today. We are deeply indebted for the sacrifices they, and many others, have made to ensure that we can enjoy life as we know it. Our choir and our 5th Grade both performed beautifully, and we enjoyed a slide show put together by Mrs. Brown of all the relatives of students, faculty and staff that are Veterans. Thank you, Veterans!
The Spanish Fork Chamber of Commerce presented our school with a $500 check for being one of the top schools with the most student participants in the Play Unplugged Progam. James Patterson was also presented with a brand new bike for being the top participant from our school! A huge thank you to the Chamber, and to James for helping out our school!
Our third grade students had the opportunity to have Thanksgiving Point come and present about the life cycle. Students were able to see mill worms in each stage of the life cycle. They were also able to open a tulip bulb and discuss a tulips life cycle.
Mrs. Dimmick and Mr. Crockett got together to write a grant to the Nebo Foundation to purchase a chrome book cart to house the 30 chromebooks they received from a technology grant that they also wrote earlier this year. Nebo Foundation awarded them over $600 this morning in our faculty meeting, which was matched by Mrs. Brown. Congratulations, teachers!! It is already in use daily!
