The BYU Theatre group "The Glorious Story Emporium" visited Art City Elementary school on Tuesday December 12, 2017. The Theatre group started with a basic story then asked students for various ideas to make the story theirs. An adventurer had gone into the woods and met some wolves that were being ruled by a pixy queen; the twisting of the plot made wolves good and not bad. A problem was presented then resolved resulting in everyone being happy.
On December 15th the Springville Jr. High school Choir came to Art City Elementary School. The Choir sang Christmas songs and their traditional song “Bum-Bitti-Bum.” The Jr. High students led the elementary students in a “Christmas Round” “Chop-Chop, Shovel-Shovel”. The students really love this participation song. It was very exciting to watch the Jr. High School choir sing. They ended with "One Candle" helping students remember to share their light and help others. The students look forward to the choir coming every year, thank you Springville Junior High school Choir.
Art City Elementary, in Springville, on Friday, December 8, 2017, third-grade students invited their dads, uncles, grandpas, brothers, and friends to come eat a donut and read a book. There was a good turn out of “Dad’s” for the donuts. For the students whose dad couldn't come they shared a dad or took turns reading with another student and even a brother. The dads stayed for about 20 minutes and seemed to really enjoy this time with their students. Thank you Dads for sharing your time with us.
