                             Sculpture Comes to Life at Spring Lake Elementary               Spring Lake Elementary students in Payson, under the direction of their art teacher, Mrs. Howard, took their favorite cartoon characters and made them come alive through sculpture. Mickey Mouse, Oscar, Mario and Kevin, from the movie “UP’, were some of their favorite characters. Wire, newspaper, and paper mache were used to create the sculptures, with tissue, fabric, and other materials to create the final product. The sculptures will be donated to the school library, where all who enter will enjoy the hard work of the students. Their service, giving back to the school, was part of the love they gave this project.    Caption Picture 1 : Spring Lake students stand with their sculpture of Mickey Mouse and Oscar the Grouch.   Mickey Mouse constructed by: Rylie Waden, Megan Michaelis, Audra Lillie, Bryson Finley, Carson Drueger, Rebeca Knapp, Ethan Hancock, and Nicole Marsh.

Village Inn Outstanding Teacher Award   After receiving a surprise phone call during school, Mrs. Marie Mitchell (Spring Lake Elementary, Payson) found out she was the recipient of a special parent-nominated award – The Village Inn Outstanding Teacher Award.    The excitement was mutual as the Provo Village Inn manager presented Mrs. Mitchell with a certificate inside a case, the nominating letter, and a free meal for both she and her husband. One of the many positive comments from the nomination letter was, “Mrs. Mitchell lives for her kindergarten class! She is such an amazing teacher. She devotes all her time and awesome talents to make sure all of her students learn.” Teachers don’t often get recognition of this type, so when it comes it makes all those extra hours and effort feel more appreciated.  Mrs. Mitchell says, “Thanks ‘Mom’ and Village Inn.”
