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.
Janeen Scott, a fifth grade teacher at Sage Creek Elementary and long time member of the Tabernacle Bell Choir, has worked tirelessly throughout the year to start a chime choir at the school. After writing grant proposals to One Hundred Percent For Kids, The Nebo Foundation, and the Springville Arts Commission she was awarded $2,100 in grant monies, to help fund her project. In combination with these grants and two private donations, Sage Creek Elementary now has four octaves of hand chimes and amazing sheet music for chimes. Ms.
