Mini Society is a program where the 5th grade Students establish their own society, create their own money, open their own businesses all to help understand entrepreneurship, economics, math, ethics and citizenship.  The other students in the school “earn” money to spend at the various businesses run by the 5th Graders.  A fun learning experience for all!

One of our Big WIGS (Wildly Important Goals) that was set at the beginning of the year was to gain 2,000 reading levels by the end of the year.  The students met and surpassed that BIG WIG! As a reward, they spent time running through an inflatable obstacle course!  Congratulations on your hard work!  Persistence pays off!

We saw the Golden Spike. We also got to see the contract signed by Abraham Lincoln that allowed the Transcontinental Railroad to be built. We took a tour of the Capitol building, including the senate, legislature, and judiciary rooms! We saw Governor Herbert's office, and everyone got a 2019 minted penny! It was super cool!
