September 10th, 2010 the Utah Opera visited Spring Lake Elementary to see who wants to be an opera star. They brought a baritone, soprano, mezzo, and tenor.

Students had fun seeing the different types of opera they have, and the costumes they have. We also learned that opera is sung in many different languages. Maybe one day we will have a famous opera singer from our school!

Submitted by doug.lai on Mon, 09/27/2010 - 15:32

Tuesday 14th of September 2010 was an important day for the students all over the nation as President Barrack Obama took time out of his day to talk to students and the importance of education and doing their best.

“Nobody gets to write your destiny but you.  Your future is in your hands.  Your life is what you make of it.  And nothing -- absolutely nothing -- is beyond your reach, so long as you’re willing to dream big, so long as you’re willing to work hard.  So long as you’re willing to stay focused on your education, there is not a single thing that any of you cannot accomplish, not a single thing.  I believe that.”

 “But let me tell you, what you’re doing is worth it.  There is nothing more important than what you’re doing right now.  Nothing is going to have as great an impact on your success in life as your education, how you’re doing in school.”

Friday the 10th of September was an exciting day for 3rd grade students at Spring Lake Elementary as Dr. Adam N. Lee’s Red Rock Orthodontics office came to visit to go along with the Literacy Place story students read about Dr. De Soto by William Steig.

Tonya Cherrington came in and did a presentation about how it is important to take care of their teeth. We also got to see some interesting x-rays of teeth that came in wrong.
