K9 Assembly

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Today, Utah County Sherriff Officer Gordon and his k9 drug dog Blitz, demonstrated how they work together to keep our community safe.  Blitz is full of energy and very playful, but will instantly drop any play toy to respond to the command of his partner Officer Gordon.  Officer Gordon and Blitz showed us how they can work together to sniff out drugs.  They also showed us how Blitz, upon command, will protect his partner from a bad guy. Thanks to Officer Bell for being the bad guy, and officer Christensen for assisting during the assembly.

Is There a Doctor in the House?

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Mrs. Hooley's 2nd grade class preformed contraction surgery.  The students put on their gloves and masks and used scalpels (scissors), and stitches (tape) to fix up their two words and turn them into contractions.  When they were done with their surgery, the doctors wrote prescriptions for their patients, using the new contractions.  The prescription let the patients know what the could do and what they should avoid.  It was a fun time!
