Students took a minute in class to share all the fun things they have learned or observed about Mr. Richins over the past month. Each class chose a saying or two among the many that were discussed.
We appreciate all that Mr. Richins does to make our school fun, safe, and a great place to be!
This week Mrs. Holt’s kindergarten students explored how to use watercolor!

While learning about neighborhoods and maps, 1st graders practiced their art skills to make a map of Clifford, the Big Red Dog’s neighborhood. They then wrote the order of the houses so as to put a “caption” on their maps.
Our Book Fair is going on this week before and after school. Come by and buy a book. There is a great selection. We love our PTA!!
Bring your family, friends and neighbors to Glen Ray's Corn Maze. Ten percent of the admission will go to Santaquin Elementary PTA.
Come have a donut and read a book with your child at Parents and Pastries on Wednesday, September 19 from 8 - 8:55 am
Mr. Rogers’ mother taught him when something bad happens, look for the helpers. We can focus on the bad, or on the helpers. Our second graders wrote about the heroes in their lives and what makes them a hero. We are so thankful for our military heroes.

Due to the opening of Apple Valley Elementary, our School Community Council membership was taken down to only 2 remaining members, and 1 of the 2 was up for re-election by ballot. Because of this unique circumstance, I requested for any parent that showed interest in participating to let it be known by email, phone call, or personal drop in. This message was emailed out to all parents via the district Blackboard Communication System.
I am happy to say that because we needed a whole new council, I have invited all who showed interest a position for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a two year commitment by parents. Thank you for giving your time to our school. The bi-laws state that we should continue with approximately 50% on each year and 50% going out after their second year. With that being said, if you are interested in joining the School Community Council in either 2019 or the following year, 2020, please let Mrs. Hunter know some time during the year. If we have more interest than spots available, names will be placed on a ballot for parent voting.
School Community Council and PTA are both great ways for parents to learn more about our school and to have a voice.
Our school is hiring adult and student sweepers. We are also in need of a special education technician. Please click on the link below for more information.
Please look at the information below for FAQ regarding the beginning of school. We look forward to seeing you all very soon.
