Each year students from Springville High have an opportunity to visit Washington D.C. and Colonial Williamsburg, with other schools from across the country, as part of the Close Up Foundation. Students work for up to nine months to pay for this once in a lifetime experience. Interacting with students from Texas, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Illinois, New Orleans, California and most years Puerto Rico, provide an experience that cannot be duplicated in any classroom.

This year’s group was able to visit the National Mall and experience the Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Washington Monument, Martin Luther King Memorial, FDR Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial. On the first full day there we visited Mount Vernon, home to General George Washington, as well as Arlington National Cemetery and witnessed the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, both favorites of many students. A visit mid-week with Civil Rights Activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland and U.S. Congressman Rob Bishop, from Utah's 1st District, at the Capitol Building were also favorites of many students. Colonial Williamsburg, followed by A Christmas Carol at historic Ford's Theater are an amazing experience each year. On our final day in the Nation’s Capital, we visit the Holocaust Museum and Martin Weiss, a survivor of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. It is hard to say what the best part of the week was, it was different for each student and teacher who attended. If you want to know more about the trip stop by and visit Mr. Lister in room C-21​​​ or visit Close Up’s website at: https://www.closeup.org/program/high-school

Our students attended the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) Fair last week where they rotated through different stations with hands-on activities demonstrating cool robots, a wave model, spaghetti noodle bridges, and much more! Our students are learning more about the cool things they can do in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This will prepare them for the future. And here are some photos and a write up about our Science visit from Discover Gateway: Fifth grade students enjoyed learning more about Chemistry and chemical reactions from the Discover Gateway Reaction Time representative. She showed them some cool experiments and then each class participated in their own chemistry experiments in a lab. We didn't blow anything up--but there was lots of foam, bubbles, and a little flame! Don't worry--we wore our safety goggles!

Yesterday's Victory Assembly featured Leaders of the Month and Top Crocs from November. Mr. Duncan updated the kids on how our school is doing on our Wildly Important Goals. In November, students increased 400 reading levels, putting us at just over 600 reading levels improved so far this school year! However, our on-time attendance goal slipped in November to 84% of students being on time to school. We hope students can be proactive in helping their families get ready on time in the mornings so that they can have a strong start to their school day. Check back for more posts about the Cherry Creek's Got Talent performances and the kindergarteners' video introducing December's focus habit, Habit #3: Put First Things First!

Last Friday, second through fourth grade students attended BYU's "Christmas Around the World" performance. Students got to see first hand how cultures around the world celebrate Christmas through music and dance. Some groups of dancers were visiting from other countries, including one dance company from China! One part of the performance was a mash-up of dances from different cultures. This was fun and exciting for the students to watch. It was a wonderful event!

We'd like to showcase two classes this week - selected because, as a group, they gone "above and beyond" in representing what Sage Creek dragons are all about.

Our 2nd gr Ms. Ontivero’s Class loves “It’s a Math Facts” game! Their variety of backgrounds doesn’t divide them. Instead they are great at showing respect for others and themselves and at school are one big family!

Ms. Hall’s 2nd gr class loves 4 corners and Science Experiments! They strengthen their class family by filling each other’s “kindness buckets” and using kind words. Ms. Hall says they are the best!

Environmental Science class beautifies the inner court

Mr. Darwin Deming’s Environmental Science class has started a long, overdue project of cleaning, upgrading, and beautifying the inner court.  The students started with the ponds.  Science students drained them and are shoveling out 20-30 years’ worth of 1-2 feet of decomposing debris.

Their upgrade plan includes cutting into the walls and connecting the ponds making one large pond.  Once the area is cleaned out, they will add some aquatic plants and some fish (and return the turtle to its new home).  They’ve raked up leaf litter and cut back some of the trees in an effort to beautify the area.  They also pulled out a lot of the cattails and are looking to introduce other marsh plants into the courtyard. 

“The goal is to create a relatively balanced and self-sustainable ecosystem, and increase aesthetic appeal.  We are also looking into fixing up the greenhouse that is in there and grow some tropical plants, as well as expanding the desert biome area,” said Mr. Darwin Deming, Environmental Science instructor.

Springville High alumni Cliff Holm helped with his concrete saw.  Holm works for Clyde Co.
