Yehaw! As part of the Utah State third grade core curriculum in social studies, and under the direction of teachers, Mrs. Foote, Mrs. Reber, Mr. Curtis, Mrs. Egbert and Miss Le, the Sage Creek third grade put on their pioneer costumes and held school as a "prairie day". Students went back in time and recited their multiplication tables by rote, did their math on slates with chalk,and had a hoedown. They also "went to town" and had picked up their lunches to eat in the prairie classroom. They got a drink at the "creek" and used the "outhouse" when necessary.
