Art City Elementary, in Springville, on Friday, December 5, 2014, third-grade students invited their dads, uncles, grandpas, 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. 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.

The sixth-grade students always study a unit of Ancient Egypt during their social studies. Students get to create a Sarcophagus (It is a box-like funeral receptacle for a corpse, most commonly carved in stone, and displayed above ground, though they may be buried). The students at Art City create their sarcophagus to represent who they are and what they like to do.
