The 5th grade students visited the Salt Lake City Capitol. They learned about the many symbols of Utah, fun facts of Utah, and the different branches of government. Representative Whyte asked the students questions about their visit to the capitol and then answered questions that the students had about his job.

Art Meets Literature

Submitted by jan.grotegut on Wed, 03/15/2023 - 10:57

For Read Across America week, the Librarian and the Art Teacher collaborated to create an "art meets literature" art show.  The 1st-3rd graders used a Laurel Burch art style to create their own "Pete the Cat."  Fifth graders drew their own families in the style of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and framed them with frames designed in a Faith Ringgold style. On your way to the book fair, walk down the 2nd grade hall and take a look at the art work.
