This year, on December 22, 2016, Santa came to visit all of the good girls and boys at Art City Elementary School. He spent time in each classroom passing out candy canes and wishing all of the students a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Art City Elementary school has a tradition to sing around the Christmas tree every year. This year they gathered in the gym, with the tree on the stage, and sang their hearts out as well as danced with a Just Dance "Crazy Santa" video. Even teachers were doing the "Crazy Santa". The students were really surprised when, who should walk through the door? Santa! Some may say that Mrs. Muirbrook was just as excited for this special visitor just to see the excitement on the students faces.
On December 20, 2016, Rich Davis, who is employed by Allstate, made a very generous donation to Art City Elementary School, in Springville, Utah. Allstate works with their agents and gives awards grants to different causes. Rich chose Art City Elementary to receive the grant. This is very generous and kind, thank you Rich and Allstate. Some of the funds recieved will go toward a very needed laminator.
