The Sixth Grade recently had the opportunity to learn from a District Art Specialist. She taught students the difference between gargoyles and grotesques. Students learned that the main difference is gargoyles must have an opening to allow water to move away from a building. Our sixth graders are amazing artists and made some creative gargoyles and grotesques out of modeling clay and then used black paint to give them an antiqued look!

Mrs. Anderson's 4th-grade class has been enjoying science this year. We have been learning all about what energy is, how it is transferred, and how we use it in our everyday lives. The Springville Power Department sent each 4th grader a booklet and a pencil about electrical circuits and safety. It was great to connect what we are learning to our everyday lives and our community!
