It seemed as if St Patrick's Day came a bit early this year, but in reality it was Green Ribbon Week! Mrs. Pennick's First Grade Class (pictured) received a special reward for wearing the most green! The week's activities included walking to school,mismatched shoes, funky sunglasses, tying green ribbons on the fence and wearing green! The students had fun walking to school with Payson High School cheerleaders and the Payson Lion! Green Ribbon week was sponsored by the Spring Lake PTA all in an effort to promote safety for all students. A special "Thanks" goes out to April Jones for planning such a fun week for the students!
On the first day of school, kindergarten students at Spring Lake Elementary made and decorated a gingerbread man. He ran away during recess! They spent the next week looking for the gingerbread man. The kindergarten students were thrilled when the custodian had an idea: he dressed up as a gingerbread man and "caught" the gingerbread man and brought it back to the kindergarten students.
The third grade students at Spring Lake Elementary School in Payson received a surprise visit from Tanya at Red Rock Orthodontics. Red Rock Orthodontics is owned by Dr. Adam Lee. Dr. Lee sent his special helper, Tanya, to visit with the students to discuss dental health and orthodontics care. She also brought along a very special dinosaur friend to help her demonstrate how to brush teeth. The special visit was a culminating activity that went along with the students' studies in Language Arts. The students were all given a dental care package compliments of Red Rock Orthodontics!
