On September 17th, fifth grade students at participated in the annual Spring Lake Boot Camp at Memorial Park in Payson.

 “Boot camp was awesome! A lot of parents participated, and helped make the activities fun for everyone.” Said Tamber Gregory.

 There were several activities. One was an obstacle course where students had to climb a rock wall, run through the playground, go down two slides, under a big parachute, through the swings, walk along the curb, jump off and jump into a sack and hop off to victory! They also played capture the ball, built towers out of spaghetti, and had some relay races. The final event after lunch was a flour bomb war. Each student wore a ribbon with their class color and then Mr. Ewell explained the rules. You could only have one flour bomb at a time. They played three rounds and everyone was covered in flour. After the flour war, students walked back to school.

On Friday the 17th Spring Lake Elementary celebrated Constitution Day. Eight sixth grade gentlemen in Mrs. Davies class wore Boy Scout uniforms and helped in a meaningful flag ceremony. The boys were: Braden Petersen, Tyler Johnson, Brody Caras, Norman Dinkins, Anthony Fordiani, Tyler Batty, Garret Figgins, and Van Sorensen. The sun was bright and we had a soft breeze as the American Flag, which flew over Afghanistan, was raised to the top of the flag pole. The school recited The Pledge of Allegiance and sang the national anthem. The student body also sang God Bless America, This Land is Your Land, and God Bless the USA. Miss Evans, a second grade teacher at Spring Lake talked about the raised flag, which flew over Afghanistan while her brother was stationed there. The feeling at the school was amazing. Constitution Day is a day to remember and it was even more remarkable.
