On October 12, 2015, Art City Elementary Sixth-grade students, teachers and a few moms went to the Springville Cemetary to do a little research.  They searched names at the cemetary to later research what microorganism they may have died from.  Students had fun looking at old head stones and finding out that they may even be distantly related to their teacher.  They also stopped at the Springville Museum of Art.
