We want to congratulate Mrs. Dimmick on her Crystal Apple Award. This is a special award voted on by her peers. Mrs. Dimmick LOVES her students, and they know that!! She lets them know daily that she believes in them. This award is well deserved. Mrs. Dimmick was very grateful and said, "Now that I’ve pulled myself back together after the surprise of the day I just wanted to thank you all so much! I am so incredibly humbled by this recognition. I am grateful everyday to be surrounded by such outstanding people that love their jobs and love their students.
As the culminating event of our social studies unit, 6th Grade went back in time to the Renaissance. Students began the day learning about social customs during the Renaissance time period so that they could authentically greet and address one another throughout the day. They then designed a coat of arms and motto for their family name. Next, students learned a court dance fit to perform at a royal ball. During the remainder of the day, students set up a faire displaying booths of their own creation. We had everything from fortune telling, to black smithing, to swordsmanship!
We are 100 Days Smarter!!
Kindergarten students celebrated the 100th day of school. We counted to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's. We each brought a collection of 100 things to count. Then we tried to accomplish different learning challenges all in 100 seconds. Hip Hip Hooray for 100's Day!

We are excited to spotlight Miss Jordan as a new Speech/language teacher. She has six people in her family! Most of them work in schools. Her mom is a principal at Spring Lake Elementary, and her sister is a teacher at Maple Ridge! She was born in Provo, Utah and lived there until fourth grade, then she moved to Springville. After that, she lived in Payson growing up. Now she lives with three friends in Provo. Wow, that's a lot of moving! We are all really excited that she works at your school! By Katie Bennett
