As part of our study of communities, our third graders visited a few public buildings and met community members that serve in the city. On Friday, February 10, we went to Spanish Fork High School and enjoyed the production of Willy Wonka. Afterward, we went to the City Office Building where we were met by Assistant City Manager Seth Perrins. We sat on the steps of the historic building as he helped us understand the role of the people in the community as well as the services the city provides.
