Coins for Kinsasha

The "Coins For Kinshasa" books and school supplies provided from our school's service fundraiser have finally been delivered to the children in the Congo!  Over 350 books in English and French, as well as notebooks, crayons, and pencils arrived this week after traveling over 8000 miles.  The travel and customs was very difficult as Kinshasa is currently experiencing a civil war. 

 

We need to thank Westland Construction and Stan Houghton (who lives in the Foothill boundaries, and has grandchildren who attend our school) for arranging the shipment and delivery of the school supplies. Once the items arrived in Kinshasa, they asked the local elder missionaries to deliver the supplies to the schools and orphanage.

The fifth-grade classes at Spring Lake Elementary recently enjoyed a fantastic field trip to the State Capitol in Salt Lake City on February 16, 2017. The students were able to view the beautifully renovated capitol building and were awed by its architecture and grandeur. They enjoyed learning about the vital work that goes on at the Capitol for our state’s citizens. While there, students had an opportunity to see the state legislature in action by observing in both the senate and house galleries. Students were recognized on the floor for being in attendance by Senator Deidre Henderson. Both Senator Henderson and Representative Marc Roberts took time to meet with students, share their experiences and answer questions about serving in the Legislature. In addition, students participated in a scavenger hunt which allowed them to explore and become more familiar with the capitol building. The day ended with the students being given a private tour of the building. This field trip served as a wonderful culmination for their Constitution unit.

120 days of first grade has really aged our students and teachers! The kids dressed up as if they were 120 days older. Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Headman, Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Bates and Mrs. Wilson even joined in on the fun and came looking a little senior-like.  Classes then celebrated by writing to 120, played math games and many other fun activities.  Everyone hopes they look at cute as these kids do when they get older.  120 years looks pretty fun!
