Santaquin students enjoyed the Pays to Read assembly this week.  The Pays to Read assembly is a reward and motivator for reading.  Our students have read just over One Million minutes already this year.  Students earn reading tickets during the term for reading.  During the assembly,  Mr. Argyle randomly picks tickets for the students to choose a book or a prize.  Many students leave the assembly with a book.  Several students are chosen to participate in the basketball shoot contest, and two students win a bike.  Congratulations to our bike winnners, Kristy Jessop a kindergartner in Mrs. Holt's AM class and to Jack Walker in Mrs. Millers 5th grade class.

DARE is a program offered to all fifth grade students at Orchard Hills Elementary. DARE stands for Drug Alcohol Resistance Education and is designed to teach students the risks involved with underage drinking, tobacco use and using illegal drugs. The point of DARE is to provide these students with the appropriate knowledge and skill set to make an educated & well-thought out decision when in the future they are confronted with drugs and alcohol. In order to graduate from DARE the students had to write a five paragraph essay that details what they learned from DARE & how they plan to use it to make informed decisions for the rest of their life. The students & teachers at Orchard Hills are grateful for Officer Bell who volunteers his time and energy to helping us make safe and healthy decisions!

 DARE Essay Winners:

Tyler Erickson

Allayna Chidester

Mayley Smith

Boston Price

 Overall DARE Students:

Second Grade read "Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble" this week. As part of our language arts curriculum we enjoyed a visit from our amazing Tech Coach, Mr. Hanosek, who taught us how to tie a tie. Students practiced "How To Writing." They also practiced oral language skills by interviewing a classmate in order to design a tie for them. They then wrote about their experience.​  We had alittle trouble but ultimately we tamed those ties!
