The first grade students visited the Spanish Fork Fire Station, the Spanish Fork Police Station, Cal-Ranch store and Costco on Friday, April 17 for their spring field trip. The fire station was a favorite. They saw baby bunnies, chicks and ducks at Cal-Ranch. The ate a picnic lunch at North Park. Costco gave them ice cream while visiting their store. Thank you to all the parent volunteers that attended and helped out.
The third grade students became little entrepreneurs on April 3, 2014 for their 3rd Grade Market. They had the opportunity to learn a little about commerce. They have been earning and saving “play” money for good classroom behavior. All the students offered some sort of goods or service. Some of the items for sale were: food, small trinkets and toys and an assortment of games to play, some even offered fingernail painting. They each got to take the money they have earned and spend it anyway they want. It was a fun and educational experience.
Our second graders visited Harward Farms in Springville for their spring field trip. Farm Field Days is sponsored by the Utah County Farm Bureau and allows children to see how a farm works and to learn about different things in agriculture. There are different stations that the kids go too. They go to stations about sheep growers, beef growers, pork growers, bee farmers, a petting zoo, mink growers, hand sanitation, dairy farms, chicken farms, farm safety, etc. It allows children to see where food and other household items come from. They also visited the Springville Museum of Art.
