The second grade enjoyed a fall field trip on Thursday, October 23. They walked the Provo River Trail and explored Bridal Veil Falls. Then they went to the BYU Bean Museum.

The fourth grade held their annual Mountain Man Rendezvous on Thursday, October 23, 2014. This is a fun tradition the fourth grade does to finish their unit on Utah's Explorer's and Mountain Men. These past weeks the students have been earning beaver pelts for good behavior, staying on task, etc. They then use the beaver pelts to trade for goods or services that the students brought from home. The students had collected items from their homes such as: toys, trinkets, games, things they thought might trade at the rendezvous. Some made games and had small prizes.

The Kindergarten classes learned about different aspects of our community. They heard from Officer Warner. He talked to them about being safe on the streets this Halloween season. The students promised to be safe and follow the rules Officer Warner talked to them about. They went outside and were able to get inside the police car, watch the flashing lights and hear the siren. The fire truck was going to come also but got called out. To top off the day they learned how to make pizza from Two Jack's Pizza.
