During the week of October 25 - 28 the 90th National FFA convention was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Students from Springville FFA had the opportunity to attend this convention and expo. While in attendance students expanded their knowledge by attending workshops and tours of local businesses. These tours included Jeptha Creed Distillery, Undulata Farm, KyBlueGrass Genetics, Schaffer Hogs and Abbott’s Candy Factory.

On Friday morning Springville FFA members participated in a “Day of Service” in which they filled boxes for a senior food program. Each box weighed 40 pounds and contained items such as canned fruit, vegetables and meat as well as cereal and shelf stable milk. During a two hour shift, students were able to package 588 boxes.

Kameron Talbot, Brooke Larsen, Cailynn Hackworth and Sadie Rasmussen also had the opportunity to represent the State of Utah for the Agricultural Communications Career Development Event. The National FFA Agricultural Communications CDE is a competitive event that tests students’ skills in all areas of the agricultural communication field and evaluates how well they can apply classroom knowledge to real life situations. Participants attend a simulated news conference and use the information gathered to complete individual practicums in writing, electronic media and design. Our team was awarded a silver ranking.

Miss Brice's class reviews their multiplication facts by playing sports! Students practicing certain fact families (multiples of 2 or 10, for example) get to play tennis. Other fact families play hockey, and some basketball. It's a fun way to keep the kids motivated. They get a lot of opportunities to practice with the support of a classmate. Math is always fun in our class!

This week sixth graders learned about the relationship between the transfer of heat through convection and the density of different temperatures of water. Students poured (red) hot water and (blue) cold water in two sides of a density box. When the partition between the two of them was removed, the denser cold water moved to the bottom, while the less-dense hot water moved to the top.

Art City Elementary school represented Halloween well, "Where's the office staff?"  When anyone went into the office on Halloween they could only find Waldo.  The lunch ladies decided to go "hunting" and found a "deer" lurking in the lunch room.  The kindergarten staff twinned it up while special ed. tried to stay clear of "Cruella de Vil".  First grade teachers were quite "Seasonal" and Second grade "Piggies" were not afraid of the big bad wolf.
