Lagoon day is quickly approaching and it's time to remind everyone of the requirements they need to meet in order to be eligible. 

Lagoon day will be on Thursday, May 16. Students can start buying their tickets on April 29. The cost $50 which covers the cost of the buses plus entrance into the park. Students will be assigned to a bus as they sign up, so if they want to ride on the same bus as their friends, they need to buy their tickets together.

Hands on learning in biology

Attributions: 

Mrs. Roberts' biology class learned about DNA replication in a simulation that inolved all students in a hands-on activity.  Students had ropes and blocks that represented the 4 chemicals that make up DNA strands which they had to string on their ropes to create the proper DNA strand produced in their DNA replication. Students enjoyed getting out of their desks and interacting with their friends while they learned in a fun and engaging way.

On Tuesday, March 19th, the jazz band students attended the district jazz band assessment held at the Summit Center in Springville. They performed well and earned a II+ rating, very close to superior. The judge and clinician for the day was Brent Applonie, a former music educator and current faculty member at BYU. These kids have come a long way and over half of them are playing instruments they only just started this year. There are more good times ahead for these you g students.
